Baking Bread And Turkey Pot Pies


The weather is getting cooler outside and the days are growing shorter, for my family that means more time is spent inside.


  I am not a cold weather person and I dread the change of seasons. The colder weather brings not only coldness but also less sun. It seems to get dark too early so that means less time to play outside. The cold days are perfect for baking bread. Since I am stuck inside, I like to use my time baking bread. Baking bread gives the house a great scent and the warmth from the oven makes the house feel warmer. Homemade bread also tastes so good, way better than that bread wrapped in plastic that you get from the store. My husband loves when I bake bread because I tend to bake other things since the oven has to be on for a long time. Baking bread also means that my husband will get a dinner that is baked in the oven.


  This past week the weather was cooler, so I decided to bake a loaf of my pretzel bread. When I was kneading the bread, I thought about what I could make for dinner. I remembered that I had some Turkey Pot Pies in the freezer that would go great with my warm pretzel bread. Now these pot pies are the good kind, not like the ones I had as a child that tasted like the box they came in. The turkey pot pies that were going into the oven with my homemade bread are made by Blake's. This company uses only the finest organic and all-natural ingredients and makes their pies from scratch like my bread. They have wonderful people who fill these flaky crust pies with hormone-free and antibiotic free meat and garden vegetables. I will gladly let my family eat turkey when it has none of the nasty hormones and antibiotics.


  The homemade bread and turkey pot pie fill the house with a nice aroma. My husband comes home from work and says "it smells so good in here, when do we eat?" My husband is happy that it was a cold day. He loves when I bake bread and cook a delicious turkey pot pie. I bought my turkey pot pie at Sprouts. Blake's also makes beef pot pies and other natural meals. Just look at all the stores that carry Blake's products.

 Company Info
Blake’s started as a family farm in Concord, NH by Great Grandma Clara Blake in 1929 raising the finest free-range, all-natural turkeys and soon became a holiday standard for thousands of New England families. In 1970 Charlie Blake sold their first pot pie from the back of his ‘67 Chevy van at St. John’s Church in Concord and thus Blake’s pot pies were started. Four decades later, Charlie and his wife, Sally, were distributing pot pies throughout New England and built a new production facility at the farm. Very little had changed. They were still using Clara’s recipes, cutting vegetables by hand and making gravy from scratch. Theirs was a thrifty, mom-and- pop business operating with a simple goal: Put healthy meals on the table for as many folks as possible. Today, Blake’s meals can be found nationwide and every meal is still made from scratch in small batches just like they always have been. Blake’s has grown from just pot pies to a variety of meals include an organic line of meals and gluten free as well. Blake’s is blessed with a wonderful staff and a shared vision for positively affecting the lives of their customers through their food
