Week 36 Sunday (9/21/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Migas
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: Recipes from an Accidental Country Girl         Pages: 61 - 63       Copyright:  2009  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 478 calories per serving, if 4 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

The peppers and onion make such a pretty pan

Here, I have added the egg mixture 

The eggs are SLOWLY cooking

         When I initially made the Migas, I had mixed reviews. I took one over to Nicole and she had the same impression that I had at the time. We felt that they lacked a zip or a spice. The funny thing is that I called Jenny and asked her if she would eat one for breakfast the next day. Both, she and I thought they were great on day 2. Maybe, the flavors needed to meld together.
         I did make two changes. I did not put in the tomatoes or the fried corn tortillas. I substituted two small snack packages of Fritos. Each Miga got ½ of a small package. The Fritos were wonderful in the Migas.

Trivial Triffles

         I just saw a picture in a magazine of Jennifer Aniston. Of course, the caption once again talked about her hairstyle. That made me think of the important hairstyles during my lifetime.
         First, there was Jan Brady. She had the long beautiful hair that I always wanted as a kid, except that I wanted black Hawaiian hair. I know, it’s hard to picture Jan is a black wig – wait! I think she wore an ugly one on the show. But imagine it long and flowing and silky black. That would be the hair I wanted.
         I always thought Jackie Kennedy was such a classy lady. I thought that her hair at the time was great. Now, I think it kind of looked like a football helmet. Oh, how times have changed.
         And then, there was Marilyn Monroe. Her hair was platinum and soft and curly. I liked her hair now and then, but I am not too found of the platinum part. I find her life to have been so sad.
         Finally, there is Farrah Fawcett. When I was a teenager her hair was the bomb. She was the “it” girl. She was the pin-up every boy had in his room. She had amazing hair. I always loved that hair.
         Whose hair did you admire?

Memory Musings

         Earlier in the week I described how I got my job at Greenman Elementary in Aurora. My first day at Greenman was extremely memorable. I was a nervous wreck, but the kids were fantastic. One little boy named Mike was also a wreck and vomited on his desk. I was gagging and couldn’t remain in that room with that smell. I taught the entire rest of the day outside under a big oak tree. The principal thought it was a great idea, because I solved my own problem.
         Poor Mike, who eventually became a principal, came back the next day bright eyed and bushy tailed. He was such a wonderful, brilliant little boy and remains a fantastic man today.
