Kelly Stilwell says we love turkey pot pie. In fact, I probably make a roast chicken at least once a month, and I’ll serve mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and stuffing, just like on Thanksgiving. The next day, we’ll have all those yummy leftovers, and enjoy it all over again. We can easily eat an entire roast chicken in two days, but a turkey takes a little longer, so I like to get creative.
