Here's your early morning winter roads report for Wednesday

Heron's Nest - Wed, 2015-01-21 05:20
First the good news.

The drive into work should be fine.

Now the bad news.

The commute home may be an adventure.

Despite temperatures below freezing and what first appeared to be a sheen on the roads as I stepped out the door, I did not encounter any real icing or even much in the way of slick spots during my early-morning commute.

Of course the first thing I had to do was chip away at the heavy coat of frost that caked all the windows.

But once tucked safely inside, the drive into the office was pretty much as normal.

West Chester Pike and the Route 1 Media Bypass were fine. Same goes for Springfield Road.

This afternoon sounds like it will be a tad bit more challenging.

We're expecting snow to move in later this afternoon and give us anywhere from 1-3 inches. The problem with this storm is that it sounds like it is going to arrive just in time for the evening rush hour. Hopefully, it will hold out until kids are safely home from school.

Here is the latest forecast.

all about the pot pie

Chester County Ramblings - Tue, 2015-01-20 19:21

Yes yes…continuing my quest to get vegetables into a teenager.

I make pot pies all the time. They aren’t that complicated. It’s basically meat, vegetables, gravy and the crust. Today I just didn’t feel like doing a double crust and a pie pan, so I opted for the crust on top kind of pot pie. A biscuit topping.

Preheat your oven to 350°.

First I made the filling. I used leftover roast beef that I had cubed into bite-size pieces and frozen for just this purpose. I would say probably about 2 1/2 cups was what was in the bag. I had let it thaw in the refrigerator overnight.

I also used a container of leftover beef au jus I had made with mushrooms. This has been in the freezer in a container as well. I let that also thaw overnight in the refrigerator.That was also about 2 cups. I turned that into a traditional gravy after creating a rue with a little bit of flour and maybe 2 tablespoons of butter in the bottom of the pan.

As for vegetables it was a combination of fresh and frozen. One cup each frozen peas and corn thawed, one sweet onion diced, three smaller but not mini carrots diced small, and a handful of fingerling potatoes sliced thin. (You may wish to slightly parboil potatoes first. )

I mixed that together with a little salt and pepper to taste, paprika, garlic powder and rosemary, and put into a good-sized baking dish that I had greased- a 12″ x 9″ baking dish that is a little over 3 inches deep.

The biscuit topping was really simple. Get out another mixing bowl.

One cup of buttermilk, 1 1/2 cup plus 4 tablespoons of flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 generous teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 cup melted butter, a 1/4 cup of grated Italian blend cheese out of the shaker (Parmesan and Romano blend), and fresh ground pepper.

Mix biscuit ingredients all together and it will be goopy and not the kind of biscuit dough you roll out. Put it on the top of your pot pie mixture in your baking pan evenly. Bake at 350° for 45 to 55 minutes depending on your oven.

Allow to cool slightly when you remove it from the oven because it will be really hot.

Enjoy!
