Yes folks it's snow on the front porch furniture. In fact we were hammered with 15 inches of that white stuff and 30-40 mile an hour winds - not a great combination. Not the nice light fluffy stuff, but the heavy heavy heavy stuff. The kind you don't want to shovel if you don't have to. This picture was taken on Sunday after much had already started melting. I'll share more photos at the end of this post. Did I say "I told you so" to hubs - no I bit my tongue - and that was hard to do, LOL.
Our Friday night dinner was obviously postponed until Saturday night. So Saturday morning the guy who comes with his big truck and plows our driveways for us showed up to do his job. He called us from the top of the driveway and said he couldn't do the job with his truck. There were drifts in our driveway that were 4 and 5ft tall and his truck couldn't get through it and there was no where to plow the snow. He said he could come back on Sunday with another kind of snowplow that would blow the snow over the retaining wall and get us out. It was really still storming out and we were fine with that, there were no plans to leave the house. Besides the storm hubs came home on Friday night from work with the flu (part of why I bit my tongue). This guy never gets sick, but he sure was sick this weekend. Someone never left his side. What's better than a snuggly pup when your not feeling up to snuff.
The crab dinner has now been rescheduled for the 9th.
So I spent the weekend sewing and finished up the pillow for Kari. I'm pleased with how it turned out and I believe the fabric is 3 Sisters - but now I'm not 100% sure of that. Kari came over yesterday and picked up the pillow and the rest of the fabric so I can't take a peek and see if I'm right
- 4 cups cooked and cubed chicken
- 1 10 3/4 oz can cream of chicken soup
- 1 10 1/2 oz can chicken broth
- 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
- 10 oz can sliced carrots drained - I used fresh and cooked them a bit before putting them in the dish
- 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1/2 cups melted butter
place chicken in a lightly greased 13x9 baking pan. Combine soup, broth and poultry seasoning in a mixing bowl, pour over chicken. Arrange carrots on top. In another bowl, mix together flour and baking powder, add buttermilk and melted butter. Spoon over chicken mixture and spread to cover. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for one hour until crust is golden. Serves 6
I cut this recipe sort of in 1/2 because I didn't have enough chicken and made it in the next size down from the 13x9 glass pan, whatever that size is. I would also add a little salt to the crust mixture next time and maybe even a little bit of shredded cheddar cheese, otherwise it was really yummy and perfect for a hubby who was under the weather.
My posts always end up getting so long, so I will sign off for now and leave you with a few pics of that wonderful spring snow storm we had.
