Week 11 Wednesday (3/19/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Salted Pita Wedges
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Blog

I figured out that there are 47 calories per slice, if 36 slices are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

          At first I was unsure about these salty wedges, but then I dipped them in Walmart’s Chipotle Ranch dip and was over the moon. Using these in a buffet would be a great idea because they are filling. Make sure you have a spoon in the dip because double or triple dipping is a strong possibility. I love salty and sweet combinations so these wedges would be great in a sweet dip, too.  These take minutes to make, and complete the appetizer buffet.  Take a chance – make’m for your next shindig.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am so thankful for friends that share something that really helps me.  A couple of weeks ago Nicole and I were talking about how dry our skin was since the weather has stayed so bad for so long. Nicole shared that she and her daughter applied a thick paste lotion on their hands and then wore socks over them during the night. She claimed that this really softened their skin.
         Boy was she right on. I bought a thick lotion and applied it to my dry, cracked feet and tucked them into socks for the night.  After about a week I noticed a huge difference in my feet.
         Thanks Nicole!

Memory Musings

         When I lived in Florida one of the things I loved to do was to find items on the beach and bring them home.  One of the most beautiful things is the sand dollar. When they wash into the beach they are not they sparkling white color that you see if you are a tourist, but green and mossy. The ones you buy in the store have been bleached and left in the sun to dry. I think they are just a gift from the ocean and a something delicate that washes in from a vast ocean.
         I also loved to look closely at the jellyfish that have also washed into the beach. I much prefer to see them on the beach than floating next to me in the water. I love to look at them but they are not something I appreciate when they get too close.
