Week 12 Saturday (3/29/14)

Recipe Review                   
Today’s Recipe and Location:  Bruschetta with Leeks, Goat Cheese and                                                       Bacon
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 361 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.)

         I absolutely love this bruschetta.  All of the bruschetta that I have ever encountered were made with tomatoes so it was off-limits to me. This recipe is absolutely outstanding.. I first took this recipe to a family party. It was gone in just a few minutes. I was thrilled when I heard a guest say, “Hey where it that bruschetta that everyone is talking about?”  I did not know this person but he absolutely made my day!
         The other location I took a small amount to, was my school. I only had enough to share with my team and all of them liked it a lot. This is one of those recipes that I will fall back on when I need hors de ouvres in a short amount of time.

Random Reflections             

I was driving home from the grocery store in Batavia, and turned the corner.  A huge smile came to my face. All I could think of was:

         How much is that doggie in the window?

         I pulled over to the side of the road and whipped out my camera.  At first the dog just watched me and as I photographed him/her she sat up and let me know she didn’t like what I was doing.  What a beautiful dog and a happy moment in time.

Helpful Home Hints

One of my goals for spring break is to reorganize my filing cabinets. I usually go to my tax accountant early, but this year I scheduled late. After I prepare for my “tax guy,” I usually organize the cabinet.
         One drawer contains all paper receipts for bills, etc… When I was an accounting student (in my youth) I learned to always organize files by the name of the business and then by placing the most current bill on the top. This way it is easier at the end of the year.  At the conclusion of the year, I remove all receipts from the previous year and put them in a cumulative file in alphabetical order. This way if for some reason I need to look up my N. I. Gas bill from 2013, I know they are in the 2013 cumulative file under the N’s and are all together. This makes it easy to go back and locate anything later.  I then put them in a filing cabinet in the basement for seven years.
         I’ll return to the filing cabinet system for other drawers on another day.
