Week 22 Saturday (6/14/14)

Recipe Review              

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Maple Oat Nut Scone
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 361 calories per serving, if 18 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

You would have to be blind not to see the deliciousness of these beauties!

         This is the third or fourth kind of scones I have made since I started this blog. I love every single one of them. This is one of my favorites because I love nuts in any recipe. Ree’s scones are so easy to make, but I usually have to add more liquid in order to form the dough into a ball. Maybe I have to do this because I always measure everything, and Ree is an eyeball it kind of girl. I have always tried to be true to her recipes so I follow the directions to a tee.  This makes my recipes always turn out perfectly.  Another amazing success, Ree.

Random Reflections

         Today is a family party day. Every year we have a family picnic in Geneva for my Mom’s side of the family. I am a little nostalgic today and was thinking about how much my Dad loved these parties. He would have enjoyed talking with my cousins and Aunts and Uncles. Dad was always the life of the party and truly enjoyed his life. I miss ya Dad!

Helpful Home Hints

         This is a party idea. In the past I have made my ice cubes out of ice tea or lemonade because it doesn’t dilute the drinks you are serving at a summer party. Pinterest had a fabulous idea. They showed a picture of someone using muffin tins and interesting shaped containers to create the cubes. Muffin size cubes are large and will keep the drink or punch cooler for a longer period of time in the heat. I really like the idea of using interesting shaped containers for a change of pace.
