I came across these cuties a couple of weeks ago while helping my Dad de-clutter....
Yes, Dad is going through his own declutter fest 2009. I'm really happy that I inspired him to get rid of some stuff....
The individual casseroles were used by my grandma (Gran-Mimi) to cook chicken pot pies when my Dad was a kid. How fancy was that! Individual chicken pot pies....Living large!
So that means that those dishes date back to the 30's or 40's. Wow!
They came in a set of 4. The 2 green ones are gone. But these are in great shape! I actually made a small ding in the lid of one! 5 minutes after my Dad gave them to me!
I couldn't wait to make chicken pot pies! I discovered a Kraft recipe, that I tweeked (of course). I already posted the link here...but here it comes again!
I don't put the cheese in (What's up with Kraft and all that cheese?), I use fat free cream of chicken and reduced fat sour cream. Oh and I add freah chopped parsley in the biscuit mix. It's is delicious and Dan says it's the best chicken pot pie in the WORLD! LOL some people are not objective!
I cannot tell for sure if they're Le Creuset, they don't have a stamp but they are soooo old and if Dad says it's Le Creuset then it's good enough for me!
They mean a lot to me because they belonged to Gran-Mimi a great lady I didn't get to know as much as I wanted to.
In case you're wondering...Yes in the last picture, it's a Pyrex casserole. It was a special edition in collaboration with Heinz, you bought Heinz products and you had a casserole! Cool
Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and readers!
