Apparently everyone as the school assumed it was a hockey game they were taking the kids was really an FC Dallas soccer game!!Grace was so excited (still) when she got in last night at midnight! COy said that if he has known it was soccer we would have gone with her! (I think she' s glad they made a mistake!) :)

Family flowers

The first one is an antique yellow rose. Daddy mailed it to me from New Mexico. We planted it and it took off! He also mailed me irses and they are blooming, too.The second is of the azaleas blooming in front of th house. The fig tree is the most interesting. It is a shootoff of a tree from my grandmother's house in Lousiana. My brother got it and mailed it to Daddy. He grewit in a pot and then brought it to me. Coy says it is going in the ground tomorrow. We think it willhave figs this year. Lots of sunshine expected thsi week, so we are planning on planting the garden Wed afternoon.
We'll see. We also have a soccer game, intramural basketball, board meeting, soccer practice and a regional qualifier's track meet to work in.

Garlic Chicken

2 teaspoons crushed garlic
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
Warm the garlic and olive oil to blend the flavors. In a separate dish, combine the bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese. Dip the chicken breasts in the olive oil and garlic mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear.
