Week 6 Wednesday (2/12/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Breakfast Bread Pudding
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier
                           Pages 24 - 25      Copyright:  2012  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 457 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I have so much to say about this breakfast.  First of all, I could eat this at any time of the day. I love, love, love it. The layering of the ingredients from the bread to the onions, eggs and cheese (and that’s not all) makes the best meal.  I just made it again yesterday and this time changed a few things.  First of all, I took Nicole’s suggestion and made it with hot sausage.  Yeah baby, it was amazing.  I was also out of peppers with the exception of ½ of a yellow pepper.  This was not a planned change. I like the red pepper from the original and will definitely go back to it next time, and there definitely will be a next time! Another decadent dish from the master, Ree Drummond.

A little blurry. Sorry!

Today’s critics: 

         Brandy - OMG - so good, we really liked it a lot. We wouldn't change a thing!

         Nicole:  We would like to add spicy sausage because it needed a little more zip.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am so blessed to belong to a close-knit family. We all live in a close geographic area, which makes it really nice. I do not actually spend a lot of physical time with my family, but I do talk to them on the phone. I am also blessed because not only do I have my three original sisters, but I have three more sisters through marriage. They are a perfect fit for my wild and crazy family.  I hear so frequently about people having family issues and I can honestly say that all families have some issue but ours are few and far between. I am so fortunate to come from such great stock. (That was a cowboy reference for Ree even though she doesn’t even know this blog exists).

Memory Musings
       I am sure every person has had that moment when you are thoroughly embarrassed by someone you love.  Yes, I had that moment when I was in second grade at Wasco Elementary School.  I arrived at school and discovered that I had forgotten to bring in a picture of myself to put up on the bulletin board. The point of posting the pictures was to guess who each child was based on a baby picture.  I called my Mom in tears and asked her to bring me a picture so I wouldn’t get in trouble. My fabulous Mom dropped off a picture with the school secretary and returned home.  
         During lunch the teacher posted the pictures so we could guess who was whom when we returned to class.  As I approached the bulletin board I heard the laughter.  As I glanced at the pictures there I was buck naked in the bathtub. I was mortified!  Of course, I was embarrassed but later Mom’s response was classic.  She informed me that she thought I was so cute in that tub and should share it with everyone.  A mother’s love is a strange thing!  Love ya Mom!
