I arose and walked to the bedroom window this morning and saw that it had rained during the night. I took a shaved and took a shower. I was dressing when the alarm clock awakened me! Imagine my disappointment when I realized I would have to do it all over again!

For dinner last evening, I placed three boneless, skinless chicken breasts in a large casserole dish, seasoned with Red Monkey Cajun spice, layered sliced onions, fresh baby spinach, sliced red bell pepper, sliced white mushrooms, and three heads of peeled garlic cloves. I sprinkled more Red Monkey Cajun spice atop the vegetables, affixed the lid, and cooked for 40 minutes in the microwave, on power level three. It was delicious.
