Week 20 Sunday (6/1/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:                    Moist Pumpkin Spice Muffins with Cream Cheese Frosting
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 277 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.)

I didn't do a very good job frosting them but they tasted amazing

         Boy, oh boy, do I love Ree’s muffins and scones. The cream cheese frosting makes me smile to just remember the rich taste I enjoyed. I absolutely love these muffins and would even be bold and daring and eat these in the summer.  Now that is not to say they are not the perfect winter holiday treat, but they are just plain ole great no matter what time of year it is now. Join me and enjoy your own little pumpkin treat.
Trivial Triffles

         Illinois has had some wicked storms in the spring and summer. I love these photos of the storms moving in a few weeks ago. I snapped these pictures of the stormy sky. I immediately thought of the Garth Brook lines where he says, “and the thunder rolls…..” Of course that wasn’t about this type of storm but the thought just popped into my head.”

They look all smeary (is that a word??)

I love the shapes that form as they roll in

Memory Musings

         In the late 70’s, I became friends with Pam Berle. She shared a family story that has stuck with me today. Her Mom, Mrs. Berle, who I knew from my church, was the victim of a lightning strike.  Of course in those days there was no such thing as a cell phone so our phones were all attached to the wall. Pam’s Mom was talking on the phone when the wire transmitter was struck by a lightning bolt. The lightning ran down the wire, into the house, through the receiver at her ear, and through her body to the ground. She had a terrible scar where the bolt when through the side of her body.
         After I learned of her lightning strike I rarely ever talked on the phone during a storm. Even today, I do not like to talk on the phone during a storm even though I know we are relatively safe.
