Like and Share this post to spread the news and Congratulate Garrison for her Chicken and Dumplings recipe shown here:

  • 1 baked chicken
  • Carrots peeled and cut into bite size pieces (however many or little you’d like)
Celery cut into bite size pieces (same as carrots. I use 6 each)
  • 2 boxes of chicken stock
  • Bisquick

In a pot heat up the chicken stock and add the carrots and celery
There will be juice from the prepared warm chicken, carefully pour those juices into your chicken stock and veggies. Watch for bones. This adds a salt element. Debone the chicken completely. Bring to a rolling boil.

In a big bowl add three cups of bisquick and 2 cups of milk. Stir till all the lumps are out. You don’t want it too watery. It should be the consistency of glue. This isn’t a perfect science.

While stick is at a rolling boil and big spoonfuls of the dumplings until gone. Cover and reduce heat a bit so it still simmers but if it’s too high the bottom will burn. About 10 minutes till the top of the dumplings ate cooked. 
Taste before salting because I’ve never once had to add salt.

​Harrisburg, PA – The Pennsylvania Department of Aging today announced that older adults who will soon be turning 65 and are not yet enrolled in Medicare can attend a free virtual event to learn about their healthcare coverage options when enrolling for Medicare.


The "Welcome to Medicare" event on June 23, open from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., will feature national presentations from the State Health Insurance Assistance Programs on Medicare eligibility, enrollment and coverage options. Representatives will be available to answer questions and assist older adults with information to enable them to make choices on Medicare coverage that best meets their needs and lowers their costs.


In Pennsylvania, this program is known as APPRISE. Throughout the national presentation, staff from APPRISE will host an exhibit for Pennsylvania and will respond to Medicare questions and provide information about the program. The Center for Advocacy for the Rights and Interests of the Elderly (CARIE) – Pennsylvania's Senior Medicare Patrol – also will join APPRISE to discuss Medicare fraud prevention.


"We encourage anyone who is turning 65 soon to join our Virtual Welcome to Medicare Fair. Pennsylvania's Medicare Counseling Program is here to help older adults learn about signing up and navigating the complexities of Medicare, avoiding late enrollment penalties, and preventing fraud," said Susan Neff, APPRISE director. "We also invite those who attend to visit the Pennsylvania-specific virtual exhibit at any time during the event. The APPRISE and CARIE staff look forward to chatting with seniors about their Medicare enrollment concerns."


Older adults can register for this event here


The APPRISE Program has nearly 800 trained counselors in the commonwealth who provide free, confidential, objective, and easy-to-understand information about original Medicare, Medicare Advantage Plans, prescription drug plans, and Medicare Supplement plans, and allows Medicare beneficiaries to compare plans and determine what best meets their needs and save them money.
