Dinner was good!
Now maybe we can get some work done around here!
Have a great night.
Hugs and kisses,

By the way, I am listening to the most entertaining book, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society . My local library has a "ebranch" where I can check out audiobooks and download them onto my mp3 player. I can then listen to a book while I am sewing. That could be part of the reason I stayed up so late last night/this morning. :)
Here is a quote from the book, a woman from Guernsey talking to a girl about her prize-winning essay about being afraid of chickens: "I'd like to read it, too, chickens being the reason I fell off a henhouse roof. They chased me there. How they all came at me with their razor lips and back-to-back eyeballs. People don't know how chickens can turn on you, but they can, just like mad dogs."
I had to laugh! Chickens can turn on you, but it was the "razor lips" part that got me.
As long as you are very slow and deliberate in your movements, chickens are fine. But if you make too sudden a move, they panic. There is a real basis in fact for "Chicken Little"!

For lunch today we had baked chicken and this Spinach Rice Casserole.
It is one of my favorites and really good.
The recipe is from this old Farm Journal Cookbook. I've had it for years, and as you can see, it's had a lot of use.
Can you tell by looking at these pages that I've made this recipe a LOT?
Then, this afternoon I made some brownies. I made them on a big cookie sheet instead of the normal pan, because I wanted to make them smaller this time.

If you have to be in the hospital, at least it's nice to be there when they've got it looking so pretty. And everyone seems to be in a holiday mood, too! :)
