pot pie

Jan 22, 2012 by

we have finally found our favorite b’ham restaurant.  it sure did take a while.  the archer ale house is an english style pub house, in the basement of an old fairhaven building.  the food reminds us of one of our nashville favorites: the flying saucer.  tom loves their pizza, i’m a huge fan of their pot pie.  it is very spicy and just warms you all of the way through!  they make it to order and it is well worth the wait. but pot pie shouldn’t just be saved for when you go out.  it is easy to throw together and even anti-pot-pie tom loves it.  i used frozen thanksgiving turkey leftovers, but feel free to use any chicken or turkey that you may have on hand.  chunked, shredded, whatever you prefer.  just try...
