Friday Finds and Dinner

What a looong week it has been. 
So grateful that I get a 3 day weekend, I have a lot to do. 

I needed a fix tonight so I stopped in at my favorite watering hole, the local thrift shop and scored BIG time! 
Sitting by itself on the shelf I spied this fella.  A HUGE gray Fiesta platter!  I was practically running to the cashier. 
For those of you that are new to this blog, I must confess that I am a bit of a Fiesta addict.  I should probably dedicate a post to that soon. 

I had to show you just how big this was so I placed a dinner plate and a smaller salad plate on top.  
Jay was also excited to see my find, bless his heart.

What were they thinking?
Winnie the Pooh fabric? Yuck! 
I can't wait to rip this off and repaint this stool. 
Vintage books are another weakness of mine. 

This guy was begging to come home with me. 
A fresh coat of white and he will be as good as new.

What I made for dinner tonight:

Lemony Olive Chicken

1 tbs. vegetable oil
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 can cream of chicken 
1/4 c. milk
1/2 tsp. lemon juice
pinch of pepper
1/2 c. sliced black olives
4 - 6 thinly sliced lemon slices
4 c. hot cooked rice

Heat oil in skillet.  Add chicken until browned. Add soup, milk, pepper and olives.  Top with lemon slices.  Heat to a boil, cover and cook on low heat another 5 minutes or until done. 

Serve over rice.

This is a family favorite at my house.
