Week 30 Friday (8/8/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Tortilla Roll-Ups
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 221 calories per serving, if 6 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Here's what they look like after you roll them up in plastic wrap

They just ooze goodness. The carrots add a pop of color to the rollup

         I have now made these goodies three times. First, I made them for myself and absolutely fell in love. Of course, I may have caused myself a problem because of the avocado in them, but I felt it was so wonderful that it was worth the risk. The second time I made them was for my wonderful niece Maddie’s summer party. I know the first one was a hit because I was there at the time. I told Maddie that they were a great lunch. When I was making Maddie’s I made a set for myself again. They are just flippin’ wonderful and a terrific summer food because of the fresh fruit.  These are a summer must.

Entry 3 of  A Day At The Farm  (The Pigs)

There were just two small pigs in this pen.

I didn't realize how curious they can be

What are you looking at?

I don't see a thing

Hello pig!


The mud helps them stay cool

Mary Harling’s Chocolate Candy

                  One of the bonuses of being a teacher is that parents show their appreciation in many ways. During Teacher Appreciation Week, I received this recipe from Mary Harling. I can’t wait to make it because it looks rich, and I love all of the ingredients.  Thanks a bunch, Mary!

2 (8 oz.) Hershey bars (or other milk chocolate)
1 pound of almond bark
18 ounces of peanuts

         First, melt the chocolate and almond bark in a double boiler. Now, stir in the peanuts. After stirring together, drop the candy onto cookie sheets lined with wax paper. Now just refrigerate until firm.
         Mary jotted a note that these freeze well, too.
