Friday 5

1. I cannot believe that it is already time for Lucille's birthday. She would have been 32 on Saturday. Where has this year gone? I hope she is having some Chandon champagne up in heaven.

2. My friend Merris and I went to see the movie, About Time, this past weekend. It's by the people who did Love Actually and Notting Hill - and it is very much like those movies! It's about a guy who can go back in time to have a "re-do" whenever he wants. His goal was to find love, which he did, with Rachel McAdams. They're adorable. Not sure if it's a must see in the theatre but it's a definite rental.

3. Clementines are everywhere. I love me some clementines! 

4. Have you ever had a week where you didn't know what day it was and you thought every day was Friday? That was my week. I cannot wait to sleep in tomorrow and make some gluten free apple oatmeal in the slow cooker. Yum yum.

5. In using what I have got already in my kitchen, I made a (very unhealthy) Chicken broccoli casserole by Trisha Yearwood last night. It was a bit salty but all in all, tasty! Plus I already had the cooked chicken, broccoli and rice from another meal so it really worked out to my benefit :) Of course you could always just buy a rotisserie chicken at the store to save some time.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole
