Raise your hand if you remember the Hot Pockets jingle from the mid 90’s… I really hope everyone reading this literally just raised their hand into the air – that is how amazing the Hot Pockets jingle is. In case you are having a hard time remembering, or you just want a reminder as to the awesomeness of the pocket, check out this wonderful commercial.
If I had the ability to predict the future, I would say that some Sunday meal this coming spring will be a homemade Hot Pocket extravaganza. However, I cannot predict the future, so I will not say that. What I can say is that Hot Pockets are amazing, especially when they are homemade.
Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “why do I care about your love (obsession) with Hot Pockets–this post is supposed to be about leftover beef stew!” Well, dear reader, Kelly and I outdid ourselves with the creative leftovers post this week. We turned our beef stew into the filling of a homemade Hot Pocket. It was our lazy version of an attempt to make a beef pot pie!

This week’s meal was beef stew: the perfect winter meal. It went really well, except for one horrendous mistake: we didn’t start cooking until 3:30 pm. This would be an appropriate time of day to start cooking any other meal, but beef stew takes about a hundred million years to cook.
