Week 23 Wednesday (6/18/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Pepperoni Pizza Burgers
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 856 calories per serving, if 4 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
***Ree made ½ lb. burgers – calories can be reduced by creating ¼ lb. burgers

Just look at that pepperoni, mozzarella and sauce. Mmmmmmmm!

         These burgers are so flavorful. I love pizza and that may be why this burger just hit the spot. I love the pepperoni but it is the meat mixture that is the key to this amazing meal.  The biggest problem I had was that Ree serves giant ½ lb. burgers and my calorie count doesn’t allow for that many calories at one meal. So I had to change the size of my burgers to make it work for this woman. This is a fun alternative to a regular old hamburger.  Try it!

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am thankful for the time I get to spend with my Mom. Two days ago I spend the morning with Mom making a Lemon Lime Pound Cake from Ree’s blog. Mom plans to serve this at her bridge club meeting Wednesday. I know that this is an amazing cake and all of her guests will love every bite.

Memory Musings

         Both sides of my family have a reunion in the summer. My Dad’s side of the family historically met at the Sannauk Forest Preserve between Sandwich and Sommonuak. My Dad had a very large family, so getting this bunch together is a feat in itself.  I love these reunions because I rarely, if ever, see anyone from my Dad’s side of the family, except my Aunt Ada.
         One of my favorite memories from my childhood involved my Uncle Wes. He always brought in a trough filled with ice and large, freezing bottles of grape and orange Nehi. This was such a treat and we loved drinking it right out of the bottle. To this day, I love both orange and grape soda.  I miss you Uncle Wes.

My wonderful Uncle Wes

         Reunions are a time to catch up on new births in the family, accomplishments, and just share funny stories. I am extremely blessed to have wonderful people on both sides of my family.
