Finally after several cloudy days filled with snow flurries, the sun came out this morning.  I’m finally warm!  That’s hard to believe since it was down to 4 degrees last night.  That qualifies as cold for any place, but in Tennessee, it’s down right miserable!  It’s a good thing we didn’t get a lot of snow or we’d be stuck in the Hollow until Spring.  Hope you’re staying warm wherever you are today.  Here’s a quick vintage recipe to keep you cozy.


2 & 1/2 tablespoons Minute Tapioca

Salt & Pepper to taste

Dash of paprika

2 cups cooked chicken, diced

1 cup cooked vegetables (use your favorite)

3/4 cup milk

1/2 cup chicken stock

2 tablespoons melted butter

6-8 unbaked canned biscuits

Combine Minute Tapioca, salt, pepper, paprika, chicken, milk, stock, vegetables and butter.  Mix thoroughly.  Turn into greased casserole and bake in hot oven (425 degrees) for five minutes.  Stir well and bake another five minutes.  Stir again and place biscuits on top of chicken mixture.  Continue baking 12-15 minutes or until biscuits are browned.

We've been frozen also up here on the Plateau, Marge... It is back down to 13 degrees right now... BUT--it's going to finally get warm this week (I hope)...

We ended up with about 1.5 inches of snow--not too much but pretty. Check my blogs.
