My 1Days Of  Christmas

Day 16 - January 10th

Only one more Florida sunrise before it’s time to go.  This morning we are mostly cloud covered but it shouldn’t stay this way  We’ll be in the low 80’s and sunny later on they say.

Yesterday was a very windy day .  It blew and blew strongly all day long.  I even had to put my sweatshirt on when I laid out trying to soak up some sun.  
My faithful grand dog kept me company and didn’t seem to mind the wind at all.  

DD called to let me know that they would be picking me up at the airport.  I should just text them when I was landing.  She said it’s been cold and depressing since she got home and she can’t seem to get warm.  I’ll probably feel the same way. It is supposed to  be in the 50’s and raining when I get home.  At least it won’t be below freezing and snowing.  

Dinner was delicious and my DIL said it was a Paula Dean Chicken Pot Recipe. Sadly I didn’t take a picture, but  I looked it up on line so I’d have the recipe to share.  The casserole fed the 5 of us with generous servings. There were no leftovers.

Hurry Up Chicken Pot Pie
Makes 4-6 servings

2 c. chopped cooked chicken breast
2 hard boiled eggs, sliced
1/2 c.thinly sliced carrots
1/2 c.frozen green peas
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 c. chicken broth
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups instant biscuit mix
1 c. milk
1 stick melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a greased 2 qt. casserole layer the chicken, eggs, carrots and peas. 
Mix the soup. chicken broth and season with salt and pepper.  Pour over layers.
Stir together the biscuit mix and milk.  and pour over the casserole.  Drizzle  butter over the topping .  Bake 
until toping is golden brown, 30 to 40 minute.

I’d never had hard boiled eggs in my chicken pot pie before, but they really made the perfect addition.
It’s always nice to try out something new


We got to see the beautiful not quite full moon again.  We had some clouds, but they only added to its brilliance.  Today it will be full.

By the time I finished writing this post the clouds cleared out and the sun is shinning. It's going to be a beautiful day!

We will be sorry to lose you. The recipe sounds good, I love chicken pot pie, even the frozen ones. Enjoy the day, we will drive down to Port Richey today to visit with our son and pick up a 'nut-roll' a friend sent down from NC. We will be leaving Florida sooner than usual it is getting harder to find an open RV site. WE are looking into alternative ideas.

The recipe sounds like a delicious one! Thank you for sharing. What a great photo of the moon showing through the big and bright! I will miss going to Sanibel Island this year....we will be staying home. The weather this weekend is supposed to be full of rain, ice and snow. Typical Michigan winter weather. Have safe travel. It seems to take a few days to transition back from the warmth of southern weather to the northern chill.
Thank you for your visit to Lakehouse. I appreciate your kind words.
Love to you.

Yummy recipe!! I'm going to have to try it! I bet you will savor this last day in Florida, Ma. Soak up as much sun as you can! Try to think of something to look forward to in Ohio when you get back, like a meal out with family or friends, so it won't be too depressing to get back there!

If you plan to home school your child or children, always remember that books and the chosen curricula are just the basics. The best learning experience within the home is one that incorporates materials and concepts from outside the home and the curriculum. If you cannot find a single curricula that meets your needs, don't be afraid to use multiple sources.

When giving a massage, consider using a little bit of oil. Oil helps you to rub your hands over the skin more easily, and it also makes it easier to go deeper with pressure while giving the massage. Almond oil, olive oil and baby oil are all good choices. If you wish, add a little essential oil to make the massage fragrant.
