I guess I need to preface this little story by telling you that earlier in the week "Bruce" had a little surgery on his big toe for an ingrown toenail. He's doing great and things seemed to be going just fine. He had to fore go participating on the cross country team this week, but he REALLY didn't seem to mind. So....we're all sitting there watching a little T.V. after the dinner/homework routine when all of a sudden......DING DONG....the doorbell rings. Bruce literally JUMPS out of his chair and with a huge very red smile on his face says, "Oh, that's for me" and practically runs to the door. We hear a cute little high pitched "Hi!" from outside as the door proceeds to practically slam shut. Then we just hear "Nerm" YELLING, "She's HOT!!!". LOL...hilarious! Apparently someone had a little sympathy for the Bruce-meister and was bringing him ice cream. It was sweet. It was cute. It was funny. And yes, it made me feel old to know that our middle little guy is actually old enough to have little events like this in his life!!! And frankly it just plain scared me to know that Nerm is THAT into girls already to actually yell she was "hot"!!! Oh, and by the way, when it was time for family prayer "Rosie" came downstairs and let us know she was upstairs in her room studying with the window wide open and could hear everything, which made Bruce turn even MORE red if that was at all possible. We didn't tell him we were sitting on the couch right next to the window in the front room and could hear everything as well! (Giggle) Too cute! Although he didn't even share his ice cream!

Recipe of the week...
Lemon Roasted Chicken
Lemon Roasted Chicken
This is one of those "throw together in a pinch" dinners that I came up with that our family LOVES. It's easy, delicious, and soooo comforting. Perfect for a chilly fall dinner!
4 - 6 chicken leg quarters (or you could use a whole cut chicken) 2 - 3 lemons garlic salt pepper oregano (dried leaves works best) olive oil
Preheat oven to 350. Place chicken quarters in a glass baking dish. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt, oregano, and pepper. Quarter lemons and squeeze juice over chicken. Don't throw those used lemon wedges out! Place them throughout chicken pieces. Bake for 1 hour or until chicken is nice and golden on top.
