Week 6 Thursday (2/13/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Corn Casserole with Peppers
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier
                           Pages 222 - 223      Copyright:  2012  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 206 calories per serving, if 10 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         Another fabulous corn recipe from the ever amazing Ree Drummond!.  This recipe has such a great taste. I love the jalapenos and bell peppers.  Ree has the perfect recipe.  I would love this with a hamburger or steak or chicken or pork chops….. okay I would like this dish as a side dish to anything.  This one is a keeper!

Don't the bell peppers and chilies look amazing?

Today’s critics: 

       Brandy - Very good! Yum. You hit a homerun with everything in that batch!

         The Serpicos:  “Marissa bellied up to the bowl:  We added shredded cheddar cheddar.

Random Reflections

         I seem to be a failure at meditating.  I read a few different books on the topic and tried so many things but I failed miserably. I can’t seem to clear my mind and keep new thoughts from entering it.  I tried to repeat a word and relax but the entire time I am wondering how long I have been at it, and then the other thoughts invade the space.  What will I have for dinner?  What is that noise?  Am I sitting up straight enough?  What should I do later? I so want to open my eyes and look around.  Oh well, another area investigated and attempted but it just is not for me.  I guess I was born to keep busy and be a little stressed.

Irksome Ideas and Images

         I will never understand why some people do not remove their hat when the National Anthem is played.  Do they truly have no respect for our country or are they secretly worried about how bad their hair looks? Could it be that we have just become so complacent that we don’t think we have to be respectful?  Or is it just plain old laziness?  Who knows?  Wake up people and remember that you could be living in a place like Afghanistan or Iraq where freedom is but a dream.

Long may she wave!
