It's time for one of my favorite blog hops:

Our friend, Java, is hosting as usual. 
Thank you, Java!
 Here are this week's questions:
1.  Did you watch the Superbowl?
2.  What is the last book that you read?
3.  What is your favorite kind of cake?
4.  Do you snore?
5.  Do you play an instrument?

1.  Short answer:  Heavens yes!    
Longer answer:  Our plans for Sunday the yearly spectacle that is Super Bowl began at "O" Dark:Thirty [read very early] last Tuesday morning.   After I'd snagged my hazelnut cream-charged coffee, and even before I could plop down on the couch to read the Food Section, my precious hubby handed it to me and said he'd like to make a chili recipe found there.  In spite of the fact that I'd only had a couple of sips of coffee at that point, I managed to get this out:
After reading the chili recipe, I gave it the KarenHousekeepingSealofApproval
 and we commenced planning to invite another couple to enjoy it with us.
The idea of cooking a new recipe and having friends over got my juices flowin'!
Two of my favorite things!
Here is a link to the cookbook that contains the original recipe:
 The recipe we used was adapted by our local newspaper.
I'll try to get it up later today.
"Do or Do not.  There is no try."  Yoda
2. I'm actually taking my sweet time getting through 2 books right now:
My Dad told me a long time ago, "You never stop being a parent."  I think what he meant was that you never stop caring about, praying for, and, yes, worrying about your children.
And this little gem:
Each little nugget contained in this book takes me all day to digest.
Both of these books are on my Shelfari thingy on the sidebar.
3.  Birthday cake!  What else?
Celebrating another year of life, someone else's or my own, makes any cake taste yummy.
When our kids were at home,
there were many years when ALL of our birthdays [by each celebrant's choice]
were celebrated with this cake:
Betty Crocker Supermoist Cherry Chip Cake Mix 18.25 oz - 6 Unit Pack
Anyone else have that family history?
4.  Yikes, do I ever!
Hoping that when I'm done losing weight
-15# down, 15# to go-
that will improve.
I have a phobia about sharing a room with anyone other than
my Dear Husband (he taught me to snore),
like for instance, at our church's annual women's retreats
because of my snoring.
Note to self:  sign up for the retreat April 8-10th.
5.  I've taken piano and guitar lessons.
I think it was Pam, at Empty Nest, who answered this by
saying that if she couldn't do something right away, she'd quit.
As far as playing instruments goes,
that describes me, too.

For more Meet Me On Monday madness
hop on over to Java at Never Growing Old
and link up with the rest of us.

There now.
Mondays can be good days, too.
Thanks for stopping by today.
Don't forget that you may email me your prayer requests.

Yay! I love your blog title. I'm saved by grace too. :)

Thanks for visiting! I loved your answers. I am with you about sharing a room with anyone other than family! I know, if I am very tired, which is all the time, I have been known to snore. Whoops..Women do not snore!!! I have been known to breathe deeply in my sleep.
I am going over now to the Lutheran link you suggested.

I wish I could take piano lessons! I'm your latest Google Follower, by the way. Nice to meet you. :D

I played, too! :D Sorry I'm late. :( Been a crazy week.
