Week 16 Wednesday (4/23/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Corn Dog Muffins
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 177 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.)

Here they are before I baked them

Afterwards, a few hot dogs are peering out

         These muffins were interesting. I shared them with Nicole. I am not a big fan of this cornbread but I love hot dogs. Nicole and I agree that these are not our favorite by any means. Nicole had a great suggestion. She thought we should cut up the hot dog into smaller pieces and put it throughout the muffin. That would definitely be better because you would get a piece of hot dog in every bite. I am not partial to any of Ree’s cornbread recipe.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude
         When I moved to Florida in 1975, I had a high school diploma, and had worked at Dairy Queen, Grimm’s Pharmacy, and McDonalds.
         When I went to work for Anderson Sightseeing I had some basic skills but nothing very deep. I knew how to handle money, and was extremely loyal and anxious to work.
         I owe Pam Anderson a great deal of thanks for all of the skills she taught me when I worked for the family. I learned how to be a good waitress.  I was already a people person, which was a huge advantage.
         When I went to work in the office, Pam taught me how to balance a checkbook, complete a payroll, and help with any tasks Pam needed done in the office. Pam was a wonderful boss with a great deal of patience. She was one heck of a boss!
Thanks PA and KA.  You really gave me business skills that have helped me in my life.

Memory Musings

         After attending three junior colleges, I went to WIU for my last two and a half years of undergrad. I met many fabulous friends at college. The one I was closest to was Sudena Carriger. Whom I called Sudley Do-Right. She was so full of energy and fun. We lived next to each other on the 16th floor of Higgins Hall for two years and spent most of the time together.
         Our other dear friends on our floor were Lora, Laura, Kendra (whom I called Kendra Bob), and Laurie.  Through Kendra, I made friends with Tom Roth, Tom Roegner, and Dwayne. They lived on the 8th floor of Higgins, which was our brother floor.
         I have so many wonderful memories of WIU. I loved my classes, and I adored my friends. I hope all of my great nephews get to attend a four-year university and leave with an advanced degree and friendships that truly enrich their lives.
