Doing laundry and watching the winter x games. Jayson Hale who competes in SBX (snowboard cross) is going to the Olympics and he is competing in the x games today on NBC. Jayson is from Sierraville, CA which is only 13 miles from where I live. I want to make some cookies, but that might wait until tomorrow. It is supposed to be snowing, but have only seen some small flurries. I need to decide what to have for dinner.

Barbara, you may want to do the thing with cinnamon if you are having a problem with B/P. 1/2 tsp a day is supposed to help very much, and that wouldn't be hard to do. Hope you are feeling better shortly.

Thank you for reminding me about the cinnamon. We will have to try that. We have been without our blood pressure medicine (we both take 2 kinds) for a few days now, but I get paid Tuesday, thank goodness. There has been so much drama at work (with some co-workers who cannot get along with each other), and I don't think that is helping!

i worked the overnight, then when i got home i just wanted to play with my boy, so i overrode the need for sleep, and stayed up a while with him. then, since i was still awake, i watched one of my favourite movies, "mrs. brown". judi dench and billy connolly were great in it. i also fed our birds, our cats, and the outdoor cats.
i finally got a few winks, then i got up around 4 and cooked dinner while browsing an old cookbook (emeril's tv dinners) that i found and had forgotten about getting with my cookware. i don't think i've ever looked it over. many good looking recipes.
for dinner, i made oven baked, bbq sauced chicken legs. i forgot if it was jenny or rainee that suggested it, but it came out great. thanks ladies.
i skinned about 20 legs, sprinkled with s&p, broiled them for just a few minutes on each side, then layered them in a baking dish, and covered them with spicy honey bbq sauce, then sealed the dish with foil and baked them at 225 degrees for about 2 hours. occasionally, the were turned in the sauce. they were delicious; tender but not overly gushy (that's why i broiled them first, to get a little texture). even my little guy ate 2.

and now i'm back at work, again. the mouse wheel needs turning...
