Week 14 Wednesday (4/9/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  PW’s Breakfast Burritos
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks:  Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl
                  Pages  51-53     Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 461 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.)

         This is definitely my new favorite breakfast. I did make one substitution. I used spicy sausage instead of the regular type because Ree has helped me discover my love for spicy food. 
         Earlier this week I made 24 of these wonderful burritos. I split them between the Veterinary staff, the Ford dealer, and myself.  I also added sour cream and salsa to the burritos for a great addition to this extraordinary breakfast.  I can’t believe how much I like them. Jenny Anderson and I loved eating them at school one morning!  She was going to make them for her son on the weekend.  I’ll have to go back and see what her son thought of this marvel.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         As I was driving through Sugar Grove last week, I was reminded about the gift given to me by two mechanics last summer. I was driving through the town when my car began overheating. I drove into the BP and asked if there was anywhere in the town where someone could help me. He pointed across the street to Rich’s Auto Service but warned me that they closed at 5:00 and it was 4:56. It was so close, but I pulled in and requested help.
         At first the assistant agreed, but the boss came out and said they were closing. I told him I was unfamiliar with the area and had to get to Sandwich to pick up my dogs. He felt sorry for me and put in coolant. He said I needed to get to a dealer the next day.  Thanks to these two men, I picked up my dogs and got to the dealer and had my car fixed. 
         There is nothing as sweet as the kindness of strangers.

 Memory Musings

         Bloody Knuckles was a card game from my childhood. If I remember correctly it was similar to spoons but in the end of the game, the winner gets to take the deck of cards and hit the knuckles of the loser.  Of course, I don’t remember anyone actually bleeding while we played but it was a fun game.
