Week 10 Tuesday (3/11/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Fried Chicken Tacos
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Food From my Frontier

I figured out that there are 244 calories per individual taco. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I can honestly say that I have never fried a taco shell before. Yes – that’s right – I have heated them in a pan and am the Queen of the Microwave oven but this was a new one for me. The corn tacos were warm and crispy and I actually enjoyed them. I am a flour tortilla girl myself. The chicken was very good and the rest is history. I did have a stomach all  night, but I know the cause. I am a 57 year old woman whose innards really dislike fried food. I felt that I owed Ree an honest taste of her actual recipe. They were scrumptious delights even though I personally paid the price. These are really really yummy. If you have no aversion to fried food – go for it!

Today’s critics:  just me

Why Weight?

       Walking!  Magazines talk about it as the thing to do, the safest exercise, a poor man’s free gym.  I am thinking a lot about how much I could lose if I just walked for 30 minutes a day.  Walking, paired with Curves, could be the secret to speeding up a slowing metabolism. 
         Walking could be a really good thing for my blog, too.  I was thinking how cool it could be to park in a neighborhood and walk and be extremely aware of my surroundings.  I would get some new things to write about and get in a second exercise at the same time.
         Good thinkin’. Now we just need the temperature to get somewhere above forty degrees.

My Gorgeous Girls

         I am a bit concerned about a tumor or growth behind Willow’s right ear.  It began about the size of a small pea and is now slightly bigger. We have an upcoming appointment and I really want to have it removed. 
         Okay I lied. I am fearful and terrified that it might be something bad.  I love this dog so much and she needs to be okay. I made a tentative appointment for teeth cleaning and surgery if the vet gives the okay for the appointment.         
         I am trying so hard to be calm but I do not handle problems with the dogs well.  I will never have any children but these dogs fit this bill for me.  They give me joy and happiness and I will do whatever it takes for Willow to be fine.
         For now, I will take a lot of deep breaths and say a lot of prayers that my sweet baby Willow is okay.  Lord help me!
