Due to an alarming lack of food for cats and for humans, I was forced to schlep over to the grocery store yesterday. While perusing the aisles of my local Associated, I spied something I never thought possible - PA Dutch "Chicken Pot Pie" in a can!
Let me explain. In South Central Pennsylvania, "Chicken Pot Pie" doesn't refer to those frozen things you buy at the grocery store and bake in the over. Pot Pie is a thick stew (no crust whatsoever) made with homemade square noodles. Some people still use the archaic German name for this delicacy: "Bot Boi" - which refers to stew or noodles or somesuch. But at my house, we called it "NOM NOM NOM NOM..."

Honestly, I never realized it even came in a can - I've only ever had it homemade. But canned is as close as I can get right now - so it'll just have to do. And the kitties better not even THINK of trying to get any.
UPDATE: Not too bad at all!!! The dumplings/noodles were wide and thick, and the "broth" was a nice consistency and overall it had an authentic taste. So glad I found this!
