FOR TODAY July 19, 2011
Outside my window... It's another beautiful day here in Idaho! There is just a hint of a breeze, a few clouds floating around, covering the sun every now and then. I think it's suppose to be in the upper 80's today . . . just gorgeous! Oops, we just had a rainstorm!!
I am thinking... How long it's been since my last post!! Summer is such a busy time and time just seems to keeps on moving at a very fast pace! I hope to have a little more time to blog . . . and comment!
I am thankful for... Quiet moments . . .
From the learning rooms... I've learned that walking on a tire takes lots of practice!
And that a big black dog can be your best friend . . .
And so can your brother . . .
And your cousins . . .
That fireworks are fun!
And, that Averi can see them!
And sound like them . . .
That babies grow up wayyyyy toooo fast!
And . . . that we need to enjoy life's simple pleasures, and not take anything for granted , because life is . . . way too short.
From the kitchen... Hubby is working night shift - yuck - so I have to have supper ready by about 3:30 in the afternoon, so he can leave at 5:00 p.m. Today, I am making chicken supreme with broccoli and cauliflower!
Here's a sneak- peek, and the recipe!
Chicken Supreme for Two
Two skinned and boned chicken breasts.
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt - I used low-fat sour cream. Season the sour cream or yogurt with about 1 Tbls. dry ranch dressing, or substitute half the sour cream with ranch dressing. I also add about 1 tsp. of garlic powder.
About one-half sleeves crushed cracker crumbs - I used Ritz, but any kind will work.
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese.
Roll the chicken in the sour cream, then dredge in cracker crumbs. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, then cover and bake another 30 minutes. Cover with Parmesan cheese the last 15 minutes or so before it's done.
I am wearing... A pink polo shirt and denim capris!
I am going... Tomorrow night, I am going with my daughter and her two children to a musical program where my mother lives. It is a musical tribute to the Mormon Pioneers who settled Southeast Idaho. I have lots of pioneer heritage, which I am very proud of, so I am really looking forward to going!
This picture is called, "Fragile Beginning to a Mighty End", by Cloyd Bedke. It depicts a wagon train coming west into Fort Laramie Wyoming.
I am hoping... That my garden will grow! We put soil pep (which is chopped up bark) on the garden in the spring, and it depleted the nitrogen in the soil - we have been slowly replacing it, but is sure looks sick!
I am hearing... Complete silence . . . except for the air conditioner... :0)
Around the house... I am just doing little busy, quiet things so I don't wake up my sleeping husband.
One of my favorite things... I love to have supper on the patio!
A few plans for the rest of the week:
Tonight - do a few batches of laundry, maybe mow the lawn.
Wednesday - Picnic with my sister and our daughters - at least those who can come! Go to the Pioneer program.
Thursday - Just hang out with my husband.
Friday - Shopping and yard work.
Saturday - Big ?
Saturday - Big ?
Sunday - Church
Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

Many Overdue hugs!
