A Christmas Story


“A good life is a collection of happy moments.” ~Dennis Waitley



 Greetings as we enter the Christmas season!




For me the holiday season began in the Fall and continues through for several months



with different celebrations and traditions.





I  transition from Fall items to Christmas decor by adding simple small touches.



Experimenting with new and fun ways to share a little beauty for this very blessed season.



This past weekend Joe and I attended the musical, ‘A Christmas Story’. A particular song caught my attention.



The words spoke of special moments, like snowflakes…



uniquely beautiful and gone so quickly.



I pondered about how I will be creating my own Christmas Story in the coming month.



No doubt it will include delighting in the art of home.

how about you?

Blessings for this special, celebratory time of year.


Speaking of delight…



Let me share with you a delightfully easy recipe. One in which you can use all those leftovers from Thanksgiving. I have to admit that I’m not usually big on left-overs. However anything that includes biscuits, & mashed potatoes count me in!






1 package (10 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables, cooked



1 cup diced cooked turkey

1 can (10  3/4 oz) condensed cream of chicken soup. ( I also used cream of mushroom)

1 can ( 16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Flaky layers refrigerated




Heat oven to 375 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine vegetables, turkey & soup; mix well. Press each biscuit into 5 1/2-inch round. Place 1 round in each muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up side, forming 3/4 inch rim. Spoon a generous 1/3 cup turkey mixture into each. Pull edges of dough over filling toward center; pleat and pinch dough gently to hold in place.  Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan.



These mini pot pies came out great! What I liked about them was they are super easy to prepare & you can substitute whatever you have on hand as a filling.



I added mash potatoes on top. I also don’t eat meat so I prepared extra vegetable mixture for mine.  Enjoy!
