I'm Back With A Give Away

I know my last post was a bit whiny, I am feeling better and I finished the chicken. She came out pretty good if I do say so myself. Since I missed my 2 year blog anniversary I will celebrate with giving away this hooked chicken. The rules, you have to be a follower that's it! I will draw the winner on valentine's day!
I ran to the store for King Arthur Flour and picked up a bag of Meyer lemons.
 I found an easy lemon square recipe to make on the King Arthur website.
It is a great site you can put in the ingredients that you have and it will come up with some recipe ideas.

Easy and Yummy, I doubled the lemon juice.

And what would a post be without dump finds?
Movies we can either watch or pass on.
I did get to watch The Help,I loved it as much as the book.

This has been soaking in bleach and soapy water.
This is so cute for Miss Baby. I know I don't have all of the animals but still cute.
Speaking of Miss Baby, Friday she decided that walking would the best way to get around.
Yeah Miss Baby!
Looking forward to the game tonight go pats!
Have a great week!
I am joining Thrifty Groove to show off my finds and my chicken.

Oh my oh my!!!!!! I would LOVE to win that chicken. I recall seeing pictures of Patsy Becker's hooked chickens when she was still around and teaching. I wanted one so much and wish now I'd bought one.

Hello Cathy, I didn't think you were whining in you last post...
Oh, I just adore your gorgeous chicken! It's a gem :o)
Lucky finds again at the dump, and the new toy for Miss Baby is a joy.
Congratulations to Miss Baby on walking, such a wonderful milestone in her life! (I'll bet Grammy and Grandaddy are thrilled).
Hope David is doing well.
Sending hugs,

Way to go Miss Baby. This brings on a big smile on my face. Great find at the dump but please put my name right on that amazing chicken.
I love the book The Help very much but I didn't get to see the movie as no one wanted to go with me. Well, I didn't tried very hard to find someone to go with. I'll end up buying the DVD. Hugs.. JB
