What's for dinner?

Now that Jason and I are both working all day until at least 5:30 or later, it's been hard to make dinner like I used to. That's why I appreciate yummy, easy recipes like this one.

Chicken and Broccoli Pie
1 lb chopped chicken
1/4 C chopped onion
2 Tbsp flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 1/4 C milk
3 oz cream cheese, softened
1 egg
10 oz chopped frozen broccoli cooked and drained
4 oz shredded cheese
Pastry for 9 inch pie pan

Saute chicken and onion in 1 Tbsp oil till done. Add flour, coat chicken; add salt, garlic salt and milk. Stir until bubbly, add cream cheese until melted. Stir some of hot mixture with the egg, then stir egg into pan. Add broccoli, pour hot mix into baked pastry shell and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 min.

My alterations: I eliminate the chicken and use 16 oz of broccoli, I also use the 1/3 less fat cream cheese. It tastes just the same, but I feel like it melts faster than regular cream cheese.

See, you're way more proactive about it than I am. When I work full-time, I just don't cook ;)

This sounds so good I think I will have to try it tomorrow night. I loved the picture of your dream house. The curb appeal was great, I love the porch! I can see the two of you in this house!
