Week 17 Friday (5/2/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Fatty’s Grandma’s Cheez Eggs
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 410 calories per serving, if 1 serving are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

These take minutes and are phenomenal

       OMG ARE THESE AMAZING!  I love eggs but that processed cheese and milk truly made it to die for.  I wanted to make it again a.s.a.p.  This only took a few minutes to make and I had it as a dinner. My family occasionally served breakfast in the evening and today breakfast is one of my favorite meals at any time of the day. This was so good and it really made scrambled eggs a memorable event! 

Why Weight?

         I recently read the Mayo Clinic article about calorie consumption. The website was:

         This article reaffirmed what I have been doing for the past 19 months. They give suggestions of how to reduce your calories but remind us that the important thing to remember is that 3,500 calories helps us gain a pound. Exercise and activity will help burn off some calories but it still comes down to what I believe: you need to count your calories and exercise to lose weight.
Take a second and read the article and see if you agree.

Fabulous “Family and Friends” Food

Banana Nut Bread
The card says G-Ma’s, although I don’t remember this one

1 cup shortening
3 cups of sugar
4 eggs
2 and 2/3 cups of mashed (6 large) bananas
12 Tablespoons of sour milk  (WHAT???????)
9 cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
4 teaspoons of salt
2 teaspoons of baking soda
2 cups chopped nuts

         Mix together the shortening and sugar. Beat in the eggs, bananas, and sour milk and set aside. 
         Sift together the dry ingredients. Now, stir in the shortening mixture.  Lastly, add in the walnuts.  This makes 5 loaves.  Cook in a 350 degree oven for 40 – 50 minutes.
