Recently, I stumbled upon one of his cookbooks he had tucked away - RACE DAY GRUB: Recipes from the NASCAR Family and thumbed through it's pages. Right there and then I decided I'd try one recipe a week from the volume to enjoy during the race, and in the process, rate it for anyone who'd like to give it a whirl.
Today's recipe, Katie Kenseth's Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie, took the checkered flag with a rating of 7.5 out of 10. It is a great recipe, but following it exactly as listed below (how it reads in the book) resulted in it being a tad on the dry side. A few tweaks like bumping up the milk from a cup to a cup and a half, a better pie crust, and perhaps, the addition of salt and black pepper would have dialed this baby in and earned it at least an 8 to an 8.5 finish. Either way, it was a delicious addition to our Martinsville spread. As a side-note, I'd like to make mention that with his 6th place finish, Truex Jr. bested the champ by two spots today. Take that, Foodidude!
