Week 27 Wednesday (7/16/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Jan’s Dilly Bread
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 148 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.)

         OMG! I am so glad I made this bread. I love dill and onion, but had no idea how tremendous this bread would be to eat. This is amazing to eat with hot tea or coffee. I ate it all by itself and it was even great all alone.
         I did overcook the bottom and sides a bit by cooking it for 45 minutes. Ree said 40 to 50 minutes and next time I will go for 40 minutes and check it as opposed to just waiting for the timer to ring. This is a MUST bread for me to make to eat and freeze the second half. It takes me awhile to go through 12 slices. 

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am so thankful for my little family’s health. At the moment, I am great. I have gone to all but two doctors and I have had all positive comments. I feel great, am losing weight, and having one of the best summers ever. Not only am I great, but Sage and Willow are wonderful. Life has its ups and downs and we are on a high at the moment, so I am grateful for our current health, and am just going to savor the moment.

Memory Musings

         When I was in elementary school, I met a wonderful girl named Jeanette Sublett. She remained a friend all of the way through high school. One of my favorite memories of Jeanette is visiting her in the Illinois State Training School for Boys. Jeanette’s Dad was the Superintendent of the School a.k.a. the Boys’ School, and they had a nice large house on the grounds.
         We had so much fun at her house. We were able to swim in the enormous pool and I really enjoyed the day. I felt very safe because we were separated from the boys who were confined there.
         The Boys School has, and is, a big part of St. Charles/Geneva. The boys who were there at that time, were in for small crimes such as car theft, and such, not murder. In those days, the Boys School was not the high security confinement that it is now. I grew up in the area and we had no fear of the boys who resided there. Our church group went in on some Sundays and sang songs and talked to the boys who attended our service. 
         I always felt safe as a child, and this time was no different.
