So today I am leaving Tennessee and headed onto my next destination. I came to Tennessee only meeting my cousin’s once before. Not only are they just family now, they are friends. What I love about the journey so far is getting to spend time with people I hardly know and leaving knowing they have touched me in some way.
Around Piney Flat’s where they live were tobacco farms. I had never seen them before so I thought they were interesting. Below you can see where I stayed as well as tobacco.
Last night I made a $5 and 5 minute pot pie. I think I can thank my college days for having this type of food creativity. I really did come up with this on my own with some influence from a soup when we ate out last week. Who doesn’t like to look like they spent awhile making something that took them minutes and it is CHEAP? Here is the recipe:
2 18.8oz cans of soup (I used chipotle chicken corn cowder)
2 9″ frozen pie crusts
Pour both cans of soup in a pie crust and top with the other pie crust. Bake at 400 till done.
BOOM! Chicken Pot Pie
Fall Cake, Dump Cake, Apple Peach Pear Crisp -call it what you want
This recipe comes from a huge blog reader fan since I posted that I was looking for recipes the other day (shout out to my mommy!).
1 can apple pie filling
1 can peaches
1 can pear
1 cake mix (I used Butter Pecan)
1 stick of butter melted
Ice Cream and Pecans (optional)
Pour the cans of fruit (drain pears and peaches) in a 13×9 pan then sprinkle cinnamon. Put dry cake mix on top of fruit and pour melted butter on top of cake mix. Bake at 350 for around 1 hour till done. Garnish with a scoop of ice cream and pecans. Enjoy!
I am pretty sure I could eat this till I am sick.
Goodbye for now Piney Flats Tennessee and to my wonderful family! Journey on….
