Creamy Turkey Pot Pie with Puff Pastry

Creamy Turkey Pot Pie

If I had a list of the most comforting things I’ve ever made, this would top that list. I’m getting sleepy just writing about it. This is the perfect rainy-day, nothing-else-to-do, nowhere-to-go, i’m-not-leaving-the-bed-and-you-can’t-make-me meal. It’s like a delicious, flavorful hug for your entire being. It’s all of these things without being too heavy, but let’s just face it — turkey makes you sleepy. This meal is “rustic”, it’s not supposed to look perfect, it’s just supposed to taste really good — and it does. There’s also no formal way to eat this — you just scoop n’serve!
