Week 12 Thursday (3/27/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Cinnamon Toast – The Right Way
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 252 calories per serving, if 1 slice servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I read the title of this recipe and thought how can it be any better than normal old cinnamon toast?  Well first of all, Ree bakes it in the oven – I just get it out of the toaster and slather on some cinnamon and sugar mixed. Ree adds vanilla to hers and possibly nutmeg –and I never even thought of such a thing.
         I can’t believe this is coming out of my mouth but once again she is right. Her way is much better tasting than my way.  Her toast is much more crisp than mine is. 
         Does she ever just screw up and get it wrong????? I have my doubts.

Random Reflections

         I miss 20/20 vision.  I didn’t need glasses until I surpassed 42 years old and it gets a little worse every year.  I am still not up to prescription glasses and just wear “cheaters.” Being a person who has no patience for disorganization in my home, I purchased a pair of glasses for every room, so they are available at a moments notice.
         Last week, I was driving home at night and realized that my night vision has also decreased.  I could see fine, but it was not comfortable. My eye doctor informed me that my distance vision is slowly getting worse so I believe that bifocals are in my future.
         My sister, Kim, told me that she was thinking about getting contacts because she is also annoyed with the whole glasses thing.  Maybe that is the route I should go when I reach the prescription phase.  Decisions, decisions……

Irksome Ideas and Images

         I was at Costco to pick up some supplies for our Too Good for Drugs graduation. As I was leaving my car, I offered to return someone’s cart for them.  The lady was so sweet and thanked me.  It is a good feeling to do something nice for someone else.  It makes me feel good even when it is something so little. 
         As I entered the store, a man unpacked his cart and left it right in the middle of the walkway.  I immediately was annoyed because it would have taken him five steps to put it back. Once again I encountered a person who thinks “it is all about them.”  It is people like that who remind me to do what is right for everyone and not be a self-absorbed jerk.
