With all this cold weather, Michelle said we should get a pot pie. I did a quick search to find out where to get one for dinner, but all that would come up was Marie Callender’s. I’ll go to the freezer section for one of those. It was just my luck that Melody Bar had a pot pie as one of its weekly specials, so we headed down to grab a warm meal on a cold day.
We started with the chicken sliders. I love these things.
We also decided to try one of their other specials, a Korean short rib taco. Yeah, everyone has done one of these before. While it’s nothing out of this world spectacular, it’s nice to go to a familiar setting to get a drink and have variety in the food from week to week. You don’t get that at other watering holes.
This is the pot pie. The ingredients are stewed together and then finished off with a pint of Newcastle. Finally it’s topped with a phyllo dough crust and popped in the oven to bake.
It reminded me of being home on a cold day with a Swansons frozen pot pie, but this one had more depth. It satisfied my need for that warm meal that felt like home.
We finished off the meal with some ice cream and churros, always a nice treat. Damn you, Melody Bar! I’m supposed to be on a diet.
The next day I heard Fergie stopped into Melody Bar for lunch with her husband. Looks like I’ll be rubbing elbows with Hollywood’s elite next time I show up. It’s all for the best. I mean, I’ve been out growing my current friends with my classiness and what not.
Also, don’t forget to try Bulleit Bourbon. Never had it before until that night. Delicious.
