A Series of Unfortunate Events

Here we are...Tuesday night..quarter to 8...and dinner is still in the oven.

Know the old saying that most people who cook - and cook really well - will tell you? Read the ENTIRE recipe before starting a meal. Hmmm... what a novel idea! They actually might know somethin'!

I was so distracted by things today - trips/errands all over town, taking hubby's car to the repair shop, and feeling not quite up-to-par.

Here's what we should be eating. This little number has to cook at least 3 hours...if not 4. I was given this dish by a church friend of mine when I was on bedrest with K (my daughter). It was absolutely delicious and I have always wanted to make it.

Boy, does it smell good.... should be ready about 8:15...right before bed - yay!

This is what we actually had for dinner - cereal! I'm so glad that my children were very sweet about the whole fiasco.

I'm so glad for a new day tomorrow - thank you Lord! :)

It looks very good! Hey, sometimes it's fun to eat cereal for supper!

Look on the bright side... you already have dinner ready for tomorrow night!

Shannon said...

Oh no! :) If I actually cooked this would probably happen to me! :)

I'm ending my day with a smile on my face. Too funny.

Coco and I had the same thoughts, dinners already for the next day!
I'm glad I could make you laugh! Sometimes we just need to laugh at ourselves, and go on. That why I just love the saying Live, Love, Laugh, I have the words in my kitchen.
I hope you have a blessed day.
-Cheers, Amy

~ Humility ~

Humility is perpetual quietness of heart.
It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore,
To wonder at nothing that is done to me,
to feel nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest when nobody praises me,
And when I am blamed or despised;
it is to have a blessed home in myself
where I can go in and shut the door
and kneel to my Father
in secret and be at peace,
as in a deep sea of calmness, when all
around and about is trouble.
