Week 7 Sunday (2/23/14)

Recipe Review

 Today’s Recipe and Location:  Apple Brown Betty
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier
                           Pages 250 - 251      Copyright:  2012  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 544 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.)

         This is such a simple dessert to make and enjoy. It is warm and comforting. I love the brown sugar and how it mixes with the apples. It has an old school flavor. The cream topping seals the deal being rich and creamy. I know this dish is from days of old (no – not my age but my Grandmother’s). I probably won't make it again because she makes so many other desserts that are to die for after eating.

Today’s critics: 

         Brandy Lehman said she “Love Love Loved the taste, but hate hate hated the bread got really soggy....didn't like that at all, but the taste was really good, won't be making that one...”
         Nicole:  That was good. I don’t know if would make it again but I would rather use the apples in slices or a pie.  I have nothing against it because I thought it was tasty but I wouldn’t make it again.

Trivial Triffles

         A few weeks ago, the snowfall kept coming and I am beginning to notice fabulous shapes and drifts after it stops.  I was at Curves and looked out the front door and saw this old planter with what looked like a hat or the top of an ice cream cone. The wind had shaped it into this wonderful shape.  At least if we can’t get the snow to stop, look around and try to enjoy what it leaves.

Isn't the shape great???

Memory Musings

         When I was in Middle School my Mom and Dad joined WestWind, which was a swimming/tennis club. I loved going there because we rarely went to a pool.  St. Charles has a great pool at Pottawatomie Park but I don’t remember us going there very often. WestWind was great because it had diving boards. We would bring a lunch and spend the entire afternoon.  The friends were made there were great, but apparently not too memorable as I cannot think of one person.  Sad, but true.  Is this a sign of aging or was it because they were only friends for one or two summers?
