Week 11 Thursday (3/20/14)

Recipe Review         

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Nutella Krispie Treats
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Blog

I figured out that there are 354 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         OMG!!!  Krispie Treats are out there everywhere but these are the cream of the crop. In many ways it reminds me of a smore, but the Rice Krispies add a new dimension to the whole thing.  Nicole suggested that you could even substitute Cocoa Krispies to add a variation to Ree’s recipe.  All I know is that there isn’t a kid out there that I know that wouldn’t just love this recipe to death.  That’s the ticket – DEATH BY YUMMINESS.  Oh Lord, now I making up my own new sayings.  All I know is that the next time we have an enormous family reunion, I will be making these treats for the assorted nieces, nephews, and various cousins.  I will be the star of the show, the hit of the party…and all because of Ree Drummond.

Random Reflections

         Do you have a bucket list?  I watched that movie recently and really enjoyed the concept. I haven’t really given it much thought because I am very happy with what I have and what I am currently doing. I think this is why I had so much trouble with the “Wants and Wishes” category of this blog. If I want something, I usually work hard and save money and go out of buy it. The wish part was easier because what I wish for isn’t something to purchase. It is usually something associated with time.
         So what would I put on my bucket list?  I traveled a lot in my twenties so I really don’t crave that any more. I am curious about Wales and Scotland, however. So, maybe that can be the first two items on my list. The only other place I can think of is Alaska.  I have been watching Buying Alaska, Building Alaska, and Alaska, the Last Frontier. So maybe I should take an Alaskan cruise. I just don’t want to encounter any bear.  That would be the only downside to that trip. But…I think I will add it to my list.
         Well, I’m exhausted from thinking these huge thoughts.  I think I will keep this as a regular part of this category.  I like the idea of having a bucket list so maybe this is a good home for these thoughts.

Irksome Ideas and Images

         A major irksome idea for me is about people who do not tip a sufficient amount. As a waitress, in my previous life, I feel strongly about tipping.  Now, I am not recommending tipping a great deal for poor service, but I do feel strongly about tipping 20% if the service is great.  Maybe people do not tip adequately because they are cheap, or maybe they do not understand that service personnel do not even make minimum wage and tips are the bulk of their pay. Either way, showing thankfulness when a service is provided should be the norm, in my opinion.
         My parents taught us to be thankful and show our gratitude.  Do you always show yours???  Just a little food for thought.
