Week 21 Sunday (6/8/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:                 Chicken Bacon Ranch Panini
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 750 calories per serving, if 1 serving is made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I love the stringy cheese that sticks out from the panini

Just look at all of that goodness.  It's a lot of calories,
but it is worth the splurge.

         The calorie count almost killed my day but it was worth every mouthful. What can ever go wrong when bacon is involved???  The surprise item for me was the ranch dressing with the spicy mustard.. I couldn’t imagine what that would taste like but I am thrilled I took a risk.  It was amazing.  Of course, Ree is a cheese freak like me, so I knew I would totally appreciate that addition.  This sammy is a must!

Trivial Triffles

         I am at school and the forecast is for 83 degrees today. Being at a school with no air conditioning is the pits. Yesterday hit 80 degrees as I drove home and it wasn’t too bad but as the temperature rises, the kids stop learning, which makes for a frustrating day.  We have been told that the air conditioning is being installed during the summer but that sure doesn’t help us finish this year. This could be a really long day.

Memory Musings
          When I lived in Panama City, Florida, I had a job at Eckert Drugs. After having worked at Grimm’s Pharmacy in St. Charles, I had the experience they needed in their store. This was a job I worked at when the Capt. Anderson changed ports and went to St. Pete Beach for the winter.
         Eckert Drugs was a great place to work and I loved the employees. Unfortunately, the store had to close due to lack of business.  Eckert’s closing was sad, but there was a positive side for me. The management had a big sale, but eventually the doors closed. After the closing, the store was not totally cleared out and everything that was left was considered “free stuff” for the employees, or it would be trashed. 
         My haul consisted of paper plates and napkins. The really great stuff I came away with was stationary items, my favorite being a great deal of sealing wax and metal stamps. I have used these for the past thirty years with my students who love to seal the envelopes.
         I have happy memories of my time at Eckert Drugs. I loved the employees and made many friends.
