Is your home Winter Ready?

As we have already come into the winter months these below tips are helpful for getting your home winter ready as well as during the  winter months.
  • Service your furnace and boiler systems and be sure to clear your furnace vent of ice and snow
  • Clean your chimney and flue. Regular cleaning will help prevent chimney fires.
  • Remove debris from eaves troughs and downspouts to help prevent water damage to your home and avoid nesting areas for insects and birds.
  • Extend downspouts away from your foundation by three feet.  This will allow proper drainage of water away from your foundation.
  • Trim branches near the roof line as they could become weighted down with ice or snow during the winter and fall on your home or your neighbour's property.
  • Check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.  They should be placed on every level of your home and near bedrooms.
  Crock Pot Chicken & Dumplings Recipe  
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • black pepper to taste
  • 4 skinless boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups frozen vegetables or peas and carrots, defrosted
  • 1 can (8 pieces) refrigerated biscuits
  1. Add onion to crock pot and top with chicken breasts.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cream of celery soup, cream of chicken soup, parsley, poultry seasoning and pepper. Spread over chicken breasts. Top with chicken broth and cook on high 5 hours.
  3. Approximately 1 hour (allow 60 - 90 minutes) before serving, roll each biscuit thin and flat. Cut into 4 strips. Add vegetables and biscuit strips to the slow cooker and stir.
To Serve
  1. Remove chicken breasts and slightly shred. Add back into slow cooker and stir (this will break up the dumplings somewhat which is ok). Let cook an additional 10 minutes and serve.
