Perfecting Pot Pie

September is a month of warm and wonderful holidays, one of the days we celebrate is National Pot Pie day.  This interesting creation has certainly gotten a bad reputation over the years, and many moms have filled pot pies with things kids wouldn’t want to eat voluntarily.  They are great for meals that you don’t have time to give a lot of attention to or when you need a good, warm, hearty meal for a group.  I’ve included some recipes that would appeal more to kids, as well as some that will appeal more to adults palates.
