Week 21 Wednesday (6/4/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:                    Garlic Cilantro Lime Rice
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman  blog

I figured out that there are 140 calories per serving, if 5servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I ATE THE RICE AND FORGOT THE PICTURE!!!  I guess that shows how great it was.

         What more could a person want on a summer night than a refreshing rice dish to accompany their meal? This rice has so much flavor and the lime adds a special something that most rice dishes are missing. I took it to school for lunch and shared it with my team, but I forgot to top it with the cilantro. They enjoyed it but when I added the cilantro the next day at home, I realized that it was even better. Sorry team – I made a big mistake forgetting the cilantro. It truly changes the dish and makes it outstanding. Cilantro is a wonderful spice and one I really enjoy.


       Yesterday, I said that the pattern for the mittens came from Wool and Company but I was mistaken. Madonna told me today that she found the pattern online. I did buy the amazing yarn at that store.  Sorry about the mistake.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am very thankful for the neighborhood where I grew up. Our subdivision was a small three block place where everyone knew almost everyone who resided there. It was a safe place where we could play all day and just check in at lunch and dinner.
         I am thankful that my parents selected the best possible place for us to thrive and grow up happy.

Memory Musings

         One of my favorite childhood memories was visiting my Aunt Marge & Uncle Lyle on the farm. When I was young we always had fun hanging out with my fabulous cousins. The farm was great for us because even though Susan collected as many animals as she could in the neighborhood, the farm had large animals.
         Aunt Marge and Uncle Lyle will always have a special place in my heart because they took in our beagle when my parents had had enough of her antics. I was devastated that she had to go, but at least we got to visit her and I know she lived a wonderful life on the farm.
         A big thank you to Aunt Marge for always being there for me.  She is the best!
