Burnt Offering?

Hey, Y'all,
Right about now you are asking, "Burnt Offering? What does she mean by that?" After a good breakfast this morning, I didn't need any food until around 5 p.m. So, about 3:30, I dipped some skinless, boneless, chicken thighs in Italian bread crumbs mixed with  a touch of Parmesan cheese and put them into a foil lined dish and sprayed the foil with oil spray. I put them into the oven along with a sweet potato, and cooked them too long. When I removed the chicken, it looked really quite dead and black. Aha! I thought - a dish fit for a god (little g) because I certainly could not eat it. 

However, the baked sweet potato was perfect and I cooked some frozen stir fry which contained noodles, and had a wonderfully delish supper!

I went out this morning and returned some library books and checked out three more. I also cleaned my kitchen before I left to go out, so it is relatively clean. 

It looks like the Texas Rangers have a real chance to be World Series Champions in baseball this year. They have one more game to play. Both teams have won two games each. We shall see. 

I am applique stitching on Teresa's quilt and going pretty good. I really have no place that I have to go tomorrow or this evening, so I work on it while watching tevee. Last evening,  I had a really great conversation with my friend, Ina Ray, who lives in Knoxville.  We have been friends for more than 20 years and have been through a lot together. We must have chatted for an hour and a half.

Not much else to report right now. Just ordinary stuff going on. Boring, isn't it? ha. ha.

This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you, my friends and family. More later. Bye for now.
