Week 7 Wednesday (2/19/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Fried Mozzarella
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier
                           Pages 104 - 105      Copyright:  2012  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 58 calories per serving, if 32 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         Who knew you could make these at home and they are just as good when you buy them at a restaurant or takeout joint?  You actually start with a mozzarella stick and go from there with wonderful breading. And spices.  This would take minutes for a party and be a true hit!

Today’s critics: 

         The Serpicos:  We loved the crispiness.  Joe said, “I really like these.  They’re good!”

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

Today, I am sharing a thought from Henry David Thoreau from 1856. He said, “I am grateful for what I am and have. My thanksgiving is perpetual. It is surprising how contented one can be with nothing definite – only a sense of existence.”

Memory Musings

         One of my favorite childhood game memories was of playing bicycle tag.  We lived in the perfect subdivision for this game because the streets went up and down. If I remember the game correctly, someone was “it.” The way to get someone was to pass them going the same direction, and then they became “it.” This was a lot of fun because it was very physical and we had a four-block neighborhood with large lots. We could sit at the top of a rise and see pretty far in each direction. It was a very healthy game to play because you had to pedal for a long time to outride whoever was coming and we were never sure who was really “it.” This is yet another way we filled our days in good ole’ Rainbow Hills.  

My Gorgeous Girls

           It was really nice to have Monday off of school.  The steady snow was about to do me in, however. The best part of it was watching Sage sit on the deck enjoying the day. She really loves the snow and refused to come in the house. I thought you might enjoy seeing her. 
         I am also showing you a picture of the wicked icycle hanging from the corner of my house. This was was a doozie!


This was one heck of an monster!
