I don't have jury duty today so I am a happy camper. I don't know how the jury system works in your state but every 18 months a legal resident is eligible (GEE-THANKS) to serve. I get chosen to serve every 2 years and feel I've done my civic duty. Guess I'm lucky in a county of millions. You are notified 6 weeks in advance for jury duty but don't know if you must appear until the night before. So, I have been stressing about being absent from home all this time. I'm responsible for my brother, and it's important he not be home alone. He is gone on the weekends to his girlfriends house. Now you see why I am relieved. Besides, I can't quilt at a court house.
Without further ado, here's some other "likes" I have today:
1. Home made pizza on the "Green Egg". Last week I had dinner at my son and DIL's home . They made pizza in the "Green Egg". Years ago, we called it a Hibachi. It is a Hibachi- very big and green. Marketing is great cause this is almost exactly like the one my son's father used to cook or smoke a turkey 50 years ago. LOL. Anyway, the Green Egg is quite popular now. My daughter in law made 6 pizzas and my son cooked them one at a time in the Green Egg. Best pizza I ever had because the crust was super thin and topping ingredients were fresh. My DIL also has a real knack with the dough which contains olive oil!
2. Toll House "cookies" made on the "Green Egg". While we were eating our pizza, my son put those prepackaged cookie portions of refrigerated cookie dough in little bread pans and cooked them on the Green Egg, too! Since the Green Egg really is an oven, I think he cooked them for 20 min at 350 degrees. Unbelievable.
Needless to say I had a carbohydrate crash that night but it was so worth it. Oh- and nothing was gluten free, unfortunately. That was my one treat for a month.
3. Community Musical Theater. We are taking my grandson to Seussical this month and I am so excited. Peoria Theater works is 2 miles from my home, intimate but with great performers. And, they have ADA seating where parents can sit next to the wheelchair. JOB WELL DONE.
You know, it's the little things in life that really are fun.
4. Having a reputable vehicle maintenance shop close to home. In a few minutes, I'm dropping off my truck for service and hoping all will go as explained. The shop has been good to this single old woman which is saying a lot. (that's a story for another day).
I have a million things to accomplish today before I can quilt, so I'll close with a reminder to see Lee Anna's post at:NOT AFRAID OF COLOR.
