(Art by Barbara Bustetter Falk)

Saturday Evening Menu for a Cozy Birthday Dinner

Crockpot Lemonade Slow Cook Chicken
Cilantro-Lime White Rice
Rachael Ray's Lentil Salad
Fresh Fruit

Martha Stewart's Moist Triple Layer Devils Food Cake and Mrs. Millman's Chocolate Frosting

Gluten-Free Buttermilk Pie

OINK! OINK!
That will be me (above) in the bath at the end of a food filled day. I WILL be utilizing the treadmill this weekend as well. Come to think of it...it kinda looks like me now. LOL!

Oh! I did some quick redecorating (okay moving around) to the kitchen. Remember those little milk bottles with the happy pink flowers in them? I moved them on top of the cabinets in the kitchen to keep Mr. Brewster the Rooster company. Cute huh? :)



Have a wonderful Saturday all!

I was at Lowe's (trust me, not by choice) and was bored and tired waiting for hubby to finish, so I sat down at the patio furniture and on one of the tables was this metal painted rooster! Do you know who I thought of? You! LOL I thought what the heck is something as cute as this doing here in Lowe's of all places? And I thought that you would adore this. So, if you have a Lowe's go see if you can find the metal painted rooster ($25 I think?) cute though.
