Week 29 Wednesday (7/30/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Basic Breakfast Potatoes        
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl
         Pages: 48 - 50       Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins         OR

I figured out that there are 80 calories per serving, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         These are the best breakfast potatoes I have ever had. I love that they have a little crunchy edge and the onion and bacon fat come through to make them amazing. There are two uses for these goodies.  You can just serve them with breakfast, or you can use them in her breakfast burritos.  These make such a difference. I once made the burritos with hash browns and then made them again with these taters and the overwhelming decision is that these potatoes win – hands down!

Here is Rees blog recipe for the burritos:

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am so blessed and thankful for my neighbors. The people who live around me are really good people who have always made me feel welcome. Neighbors can be a blessing or a curse, so I am grateful that I live among the cream of the crop. A big thanks to the people of Savannah. Life in my neighborhood is wonderful.

Memory Musings

         When I was in late elementary or early middle school, I was fortunate enough to go on vacation with the Doughertys, our family friends. This was my first and only trip to Virginia Beach. Upon arrival, the five of us, kids, ran out of the car and directly into the Atlantic Ocean. Unfortunately, I didn’t understand about tides at that point in my life. We were dressed in jeans and T-shirts and extremely anxious to get into the water.
         After awhile we tired, and I tried to get into the shore, but the tide was pulling me out to sea. The jeans were weighing me down and I was quickly becoming exhausted. I screamed for help and Bobbie Dougherty swam out and pulled me in. I was so exhausted that I easily could have drowned that evening. A big “thank you” to Bobbie Dougherty for possibly saving my life.
