Week 18 Sunday (5/11/14)

Recipe Review              

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Yummy Slice and Bake Cookies
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 149 calories per serving, if 36 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

You can see the goodies on the inside

         These were actually fun and easy to make. I like the idea of making my own rolls of cookies. I did change Ree’s recipe slightly. She wanted me to add a wee little bit of coffee but I really can’t stand that flavor so I just skipped it.
         The dough is so flippin’ amazing. It is a rich, dough with some peanut butter, Nutella, M & M’s and nuts. What more can a person want than those amazing goodies? Make these and then freeze them and you will have your own homemade slice and bake cookies whenever you want to surprise a loved one or maybe just yourself.
         There are so many flavors in these cookies. I think there is a little bit for everyone.

Trivial Triffles             

         I think I am losing my mind, but I swear that I already wrote about this church. Unfortunately, I cannot find it anywhere so here we go possibly again.
         When I was driving cross country, I spotted something in the distance but it was hard to see what it was from the car. The closer I got the bigger it became. It reminded me of the Emerald City rising from the poppy field in The Wizard of Oz. This is a breathtaking church in the middle of nowhere. I love the anticipation I felt and it came into focus. This was one heck of a fun thing to find in an unexpected place.

What is that??

Am I in Kansas?

Memory Musings

         My friend, Jenny Anderson, recently purchased the cutest puppy and named her Piper. This dog is so sweet and lovable. Jenny is now talking about purchasing a second dog.  This triggered thoughts about my first dog, Missy.
         Missy was a purebred Beagle. She was so darn cute and as a first dog it all went well. That is until she became bored. We locked her in our laundry room while we were gone. Mom felt bad because the house was partially underground so the dog couldn’t see out the window. Mom put a table under the window and a chair so she could jump up and look out. A bored Missy ate the woodwork around the window. Mom couldn’t believe it. She also ate a large hole in the braided dining room rug. My parents had had it and they gave Missy to my Aunt Marge and Uncle Lyle on the farm. She had a wonderful life there and had more freedom.
         What did we learn?  Be careful of the breed of dog you purchase. Beagles are hunters and need to be kept busy and not locked in a little room. They also need a lot of exercise.
So before you purchase a dog for your family – DO YOUR RESEARCH!
