Today’s theme for my Friday Five is Mom, apple pie and Chevrolet. In other words, I am focused on bringing you traditional American dishes. This is perfect for the fall weather and cozying up to a nice fire.
So we begin our meal with French Onion Soup from Sixty One 45. Wait a minute, you say this is not American and it even says French in the name. I grew up with this. I think it is like French Fries. French is only in the name. This may not be true but I am sticking to it.
I give you a drink to go with your soup, well not exactly a drink but very American. How about the new Jim Beam Ghost (alright, I must admit. I am drinking a jack Daniels while I write this. So it is clear that I am not being paid for this inclusion).
Alright, I am getting closer to home with this main course offering – Chicken Pot Pie from Cooking Classy with a sprinkle of fancy. Chicken Pot Pie is underrated in my book. When it is done right, it is so comforting.
It is hard to pair a traditional American dish with Chicken Pot Pie since it has all food groups in it. I also could not find a salad I liked. So how about a Twice Baked Potato (lightened up) from Peas & Crayons.
Based on my lead in, the dessert should be very obvious. You guessed it – Apple Pie. I hope mom doesn’t feel left out, and no, there is no Chevrolet in my garage. I present Apple Pie from Cannella Vita.
