Good morning and Happy Friday! I’ll tell you now, this post is late, and it’s not because I haven’t been working on it for the last hour. Let’s just say on the 7th day of Bingo, the casserole dish won. I’ll explain at the end of the post so that you can be safe this baking season!
We have another rainy day today, but there are no clouds on our game. We’re having too much fun!

FRIDAY’S BINGO WORDS …
Here we go! Good luck :)
and because I’m late today … here’s a few bonus words!
FRIDAY’S BLOG ROLL…
I’m so happy to hear that everyone is enjoying the blog roll. It’s so fun to visit with our quilting friends all over the world. Lately I’ve been following a whole bunch of crafty, DIY, and home decor blogs. I’m “wowed” everyday!
Okay, so I know you’re all wondering how the casserole dish won.
Well, Wednesday I had one of "those" days, and by 8 a.m. yesterday morning, I just knew it would be a "rinse and repeat." I've been rushing around trying to get too many things done, like the rest of the world. I was making dinner, went to pull the casserole dish out of the cabinet, and the handle broke in my hand. It's stoneware, and I really didn't want the whole thing coming down on my foot, so I was trying to support the broken handle and the dish with my right hand, while making sure that all the other pieces that were stacked in the dish stayed in the cabinet.
Well, the dish got the better of me and took a nice chunk of skin about 1/8th" x 1/2" off the inside of my palm, right where the thumb rests ... and yes, it's my right hand … and yes, I’m right handed. I'm telling you what, it hurt 100 xs more than when I sliced my finger with the rotary earlier this year. It didn't finally stop bleeding until I went to bed, because, of course, I had a couple of school gifts for to finish for my little guy.
So ... if you have the larger casserole dish in this set, be very careful. It's the Giada deLaurentis bakeware set from Target. Funny thing is, I was already being cautious about it when I started pulling it out, because Wednesday I saw two of them sitting in the clearance rack with broken handles at Target. So, I suppose a nice letter to Giada and to Target are in order. Too bad ... I really love the dish. I'm going to have hubby break off the other handle and sand down the edges. Suppose I’ll need to make a quilted casserole carrier for it … with fabric handles that won’t cut my hand open.
I hope you have a wonderful Friday. Mine will be a little slow going, but things will get done. And if you have an order pending, fear not, my “on-call elves” will be coming in a little later to help get those cut, packed & shipped.
