Not Martha

Tentacle Pot Pie

pot pies with dough tentacles wrapping down the sides of the bowl

Know what happens when you search Google for “tentacle pot pie”? Not much.* Let’s fix that! I created this tentacle pot pie for Babble using store bought dough. Easy and a wee bit creepy. Even if you’re not up for tentacles I found this chicken pot pie from Simply Recipes to be most delicious. Babble has also posted a short interview with me, thanks!

* (At least not when you have safe search turned on, oh my.)

    Umm, yay, safe search!

    I used to watch a lot of anime, and all it took was one person showing me tentacles for me to look for more shoujo.

    This would be very easy to convert to “Beholders” for D&D gamers. I’ve gotta come up with an easy way to make eyes on the end of the stalks.

    Great idea!

  • 37 megan // Oct 29, 2010 at 11:35 am

    Stephanie – I bought it ages ago, before I moved to San Francisco and I love it more than any flatware ever. About every two years I go on a massive and panicked search for more and I’m sad to report it cannot be found any longer!
