Week 31 Friday (8/15/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Linguini with Clam Sauce
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl

I figured out that there are 398 calories per serving, if 7 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Look at those yummy clams!

This is just so darn filling

         I cannot think of the last time I had clams. It must have been in the 70’s when I lived in Florida. I must say that I never ordered them in a restaurant because I am a beef girl when I go out to dinner. This recipe is easy and fast to create. I did mess up by dividing them into too many servings because they needed more of the sauce. Mine were a little pasta heavy, but I must say that they were still good. Next time, I will make a little more sauce or use larger containers.  Mmmmmm good!

Fabulous “Family and Friends” Food

Terry Mossberg’s Butterfinger Cake

         One of the good and bad aspects of having a teachers’ lounge is that there is usually food in there. At Munhall Elementary, we used to have luncheons where different groups served lunch. This recipe is from a good friend named Terry Mossberg. The cooks always set out the recipe so everyone can enjoy them. Unfortunately, I have no idea where she obtained the recipe.

1 chocolate cake mix.  (prepare it following the boxes          directions).
1 (8 oz.) package of cream cheese, softened
1 large + 1 small box of instant vanilla pudding mix
2.5 cups of milk
1 large container of Cool Whip, thawed if it was frozen
3 Butterfinger candy bars, crumbled

         Prepare the cake, according to the package directions. Set it aside and cool it completely. Now make the pudding by mixing the 2 boxes of pudding mix with the milk.
         Whip the 8 oz. package of cream cheese and fold it into the pudding. Spread this mixture on top of the cooled cake.
Next, you should spread the large container of Cool Whip on top of the pudding. The final step is to sprinkle the crumbled candy on top of the Cool Whip. 
         Cut, eat, and enjoy!
