Week 30 Thursday (8/7/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Beef with Snow Peas
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 291 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.)

I actually liked the taste, but it probably hurt my blood thickness

         I have never tasted a snow pea in my life, but I forced myself to try this recipe. I actually ate the snow peas and they were okay. I really liked the recipe and the calorie count was fabulous. This is a low cal recipe that is extremely tasty.  I can’t believe that I ate all of those green snow peas and lived to tell about it.

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden       
       “husker red” penstemmon digitalis  

         I love, love, love this plant. It is showy even in the winter. It has interesting flowers that are small and pink. When the flowers are gone, the stems are still beautiful.

         The tag also called it ‘Beardtongue.” They are full and beautiful in my garden and can grow to a height of 2 – 3 feet tall. I planted them about 2 feet apart because I knew they would grow full in a few years. My flowers began blooming this year in June, but this was a late year, so they may also bloom in May. The tag calls the flowers white but I think they look a light color of pink to me.
         The birds bees, and butterflies love this plant. They do not take a lot of work, and really thrive in a full sun garden.
         To make sure they do not get root rot, plant them in a good soil that has good drainage. This is a showy flower for your garden, too.

Entry 3 of A Day at the Farm  (The chickens & donkey)

This is one heck of a lot of chickens and two small turkeys

Unfortunately for them, Colton is going to slaughter them next week

Just a big ole' bunch of chickens

Is it a burro?  Is it a donkey?  Is it an ass?
I really don't know - I never met him.

Irksome Ideas and Images

         There are days when I become a total space cadet and lose something, or I walk into a room and can’t remember what I needed. At first I thought I was losing my mind, but then I realized that I multi-task too much or have too much on my mind, and I go into overload. If I just relax and clear my mind, I can easily remember what I did with something or what I was in the room to locate. The world is so fast paced that I hate that I am so driven to accomplish so much… is tiresome.
