Friday Fill-Ins #93

Janet hosts Friday Fill-ins here. If you'd like to play along, check it out.

1. One of the best movies I ever saw that I really didn't think I'd like was Hancock with Will Smith. See for yourself. Rent it!

2. Apple Butter Bars is a recipe I recently made that was delicious! I got the recipe from Blogland.

3. It's time for all my favorite television programs. How I've missed them!

4. Opening windows is quite refreshing. I take deeper breaths and sigh contently.

5. If I never hear the word OMG again, it'll be too soon. Tsk. Tsk. Taking God's name in vain.

6. To one side of the curving road was a huge display of orange pumpkins for sale, and on the other was a beautiful Royal Palm Tree.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to a relaxing evening, tomorrow my plans include church and Sunday, I want to watch Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, and read the newspaper!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Apple Butter Bars from a different Sally at salmagundi.

1 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups oatmeal
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup melted butter (2 sticks)
1 1/2 cups apple butter

Stir flour, soda, salt, oats, and sugar together. Add melted butter stirring thoroughly until all dry ingredients are mixed in.
Press half of oat mixture firmly in greased 9 x 13 pan. Spread with apple butter. Pat remaining oat mixture lightly on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

There's a TON of excitement around here as I'm hosting all these delightful BOOK GIVEAWAYS--see my sidebar. If you live in the US or Canada, please take advantage!

Happy Friday,
1. I agree, there were a lot of awful movies out this summer but Hancock was kind of cute. Going to the movies was my only extra curricular activity from late June until just recently.
2. sounds good...post the recipe or a link!
3. YAY!
4. Ah yes!
5. I have to make my apologies to God every now and then for that one.
6. Isn't Florida great?!
7. Have a GREAT weekend!

Good Morning Sally

I like the picture of the pumpkins for sale on one side and the palm tree on the other. The 2 just don't go together around here, at least not until I can find a palm tree. Nice picture though.

I'm so happy my favourite shows are returning too.

Thank you for sharing more about you...and I hope your weekend is everything you want it to be.

This is our Thanksgiving so it'll be a lovely family time.
Enjoy.
Judi
