Today while I was shopping I couldn't resist these roses.
Flowers and chocolate brighten this day.
I bought my favorite granola and placed it in jar for quick access on those busy work day mornings.
I always love the way my fresh organic greens look when I bring them home. Steamed, in salads, or soups - drizzled with lemon and olive oil .. yummy.
Aren't these little bites cute? My daughter is taking finals in Accounting today at the University. She is exhausted and a little stressed, so I bought her these.
We watched Notting Hill this weekend. Entertaining story line - I really liked Hugh Grant's character and Julia Roberts has this amazing ability to talk with her eyes.
Also, if you have ever followed The Bachelor .. (silly brain trash :) you will enjoy this HERE
At least once a week I roast a chicken. So simple, warms up the house, and smells delicious while cooking. Serve with a nice bottle of wine, warm bread or potatoes, a cooked vegetable or salad, and you're set!
Potatoes are delicious with chicken - peel, boil for about 6 -8 minutes and add to your roast while cooking. I also salt them and add olive oil.
I heat my oven to about 475 degrees and cook the chicken for about 20 minutes.. then lower to about 350 degrees for about an hour and continue cooking until the top is golden brown and the legs are ready to fall off.

Gwen Paltrow has a delicous roast chicken recipe in her cookbook.
I couldn't resist sharing this picture of my girls. Ginger is almost twelve and Layla (top) is six months. They are resting after a long hike in the mountains today. What a life..........
I'd love to hear about your weekend! Are you getting any spring weather? Did you watch a movie, make a special meal, or enjoy a good book?
