Week 21 Saturday (6/7/14)

Recipe Review                                     

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Scalloped Potatoes and Ham
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 251 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.)

As I look at this I wish I had a big fork in my hand!

Here's how I keep my calories exact - buy a large supply
of these amazing dishes and this is one serving for me!
My freezer is just filled with these ready to go meals.

         I love, love, love potatoes.  Potatoes are the perfect side dish and these are no exception. The cheese always makes the potatoes and these are perfect. This is a great, easy side dish that will really compliment any main dish.  The low calorie count is a real plus for me.

Random Reflections

         A few weeks ago we had a wicked storm where the clouds grew ominous, the winds were frightful, and hail large and damaging. Here are my pictures of the sky, which made me think that the world was ending. The other picture is of the hail on my deck. I am not a fan of storms and this was a doozy. Is that how you spell doozy??  I love a gentle rain, but hate lightning and extreme wind.  Oh well, at least we got through it without any real damage.

Gosh this sky scares me

Helpful Home Hints

         A few years ago I took a quilting class in Hampshire, IL. I learned a fun fact to know and share. I had always put distilled water in my iron so I could use the steam to get out the creases. The instructors at Judy’s Quilt and Sew told us to never put the water in the iron. They strongly suggested that you use a spray bottle instead of filling the iron because any water left in the iron can cause the inside of the iron to rust. This can be a real problem when rust gets on whatever you are  ironing, thus ruining your garment or quilt. I have never put water into my iron again and avoided having a real problem.
