A simple treat for Game Week Wednesday
Only 3 more days to go until game day. How about a nice, tasty, simple supper for tonight?
NATIONAL GREAT AMERICAN POT PIE DAY
National Great American Pot Pie Day cooks up a toasty meal on September 23rd. Warm up the home with a toasty meal of pot pies to celebrate!
Pot pies typically include both a flaky top crust and a bottom crust. Occasionally, recipes omit the bottom crust. Fill them with tender chicken, beef or pork, and lots of vegetables for a hearty meal. Some other delicious fillings include turkey and seafood. Popular veggies include potatoes, carrots, green beans, and peas. Finally, the gravy and seasonings make the pies irresistible. When they begin heating up in the oven, the family knows when dinner is ready!
This crowd-pleaser draws families together. During the cooler days, a meal of pot pie easily uses up vegetables from the garden and leftovers. It fills bellies after a long day of work, too. Several pies may be prepared ahead and frozen, too.
During the crisper evenings, gather friends and family around the table. These hot pies can be made to serve individually or one large pie. Either way, the aroma fills the home and warms the heart.
We know you love celebrating all kinds of pie! This day gives you an opportunity to celebrate another version, a savory kind. Invite the family to help make homemade pot pies. Go out to eat and order one from your favorite country restaurant. Or, pick up some frozen pot pies at the grocery store. The broad selection will satisfy everyone.

I couldn't forget this additional National Day. Even though this board is predominantly male, we have a good # of lady Dawg fans with us. So for them, and really for all of us:
TEAL TALK DAY
Let’s talk. September 23rd is Teal Talk Day and each year, over 249,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer worldwide. So, gather your friends, wear teal for a day out together and talk.
Join a group of co-workers for lunch. Men are welcome, also. They have mothers, wives, daughters, and sisters at risk for ovarian cancer. They should have the Teal Talk, too! Since no standard screening exists for ovarian cancer, awareness gives us our best defense. The talk takes very little time. Have a Teal Talk over lunch. In that time, approximately 28 women will receive an ovarian cancer diagnosis.
Invite your closest friends, neighbors, and sisters for drinks in the back yard. Wear your favorite teal and give the Teal Talk. Let them know early detection improves survival rates by 90%. Make sure they know the symptoms.
- Persistent bloating
- Lack of energy
- Loss of appetite
- Feeling fuller sooner.
During your Teal Talk, find more signs at Ovarcome.org.
Go for a walk with your mom and her friends. Even a short walk will be long enough for a Teal Talk. Ask them about family history and encourage them to share it with their daughters and granddaughters. Urge them to see their gynecologist to review family history for inherited risk factors. Families with a strong history of ovarian or breast cancer have a 15-40% lifetime risk when compared to the general population, according to the National Cancer Institute.
