FOR TODAY: It's My Simple Womans Daybook Day
I am thinking...
I am thankful... that the storm is not a 'wind event' for us. Hopefully the high winds won't be a problem for the remainder of the State.
In the kitchen... Perdue's boneless, skinless chicken breasts are defrosting and I'll be making the "The World's Best Chicken" for today's dinner.
The World’s Best Chicken
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup maple syrup
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
Salt & Pepper
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. In a small bowl, mix together mustard, syrup, and vinegar. Place chicken breasts into 9×13 baking dish. Season with salt and pepper.
Pour mustard mixture over chicken. No need to marinate. I love that because I hate marinating/often forget to until it’s too late.
Bake for 40 minutes or until meat thermometer reads 165 degrees. Season with rosemary. Prepare for people to ask you to make it again!
I am wearing... still in my pj's. No hurry to get dressed today.
I am creating... a new list of September activities for those of us here in the Village.
I am going... the farm on Thursday. Planning for some shopping days with Dick
I am reading... I finished "The Choice" by Nicholas Sparks and started "Moon Shell Beach" by Nancy Thayer
I am looking forward to... a Fall getaway. Destination: a secret.
I am learning... how to grow Caladiums
Around the house... the awnings are down to protect the windows from flying debris and that makes it really dark in here. Hope the get raised today.
I am pondering... what to do with my hair. It's no longer the thick & easy to care for. For some reason, it's falling out in droves and the hair dresser says it's normal for hair loss to occur. Hmmm?
A favorite quote for today... "They tell you that you'll lose your mind when you grow older. What they don't tell you is that you won't miss it." Malcolm Cowley 1898-1989
One of my favorite things... are Festivals. We went to The Caladium Festival in Lake Placid on Friday and had a great time. I got a potted caladium and now I've got to learn how to care for it. I also found a darling bird feeder that I couldn't resist.
A few plans for the rest of the week: get awnings raised today, Bunco at Shriner's on Tuesday, shuffle and cardBingo on Wednesday, leave for the farm on Thursday. Another fun week.
A peek into my day...
