Week 40 Thursday (10/16/14)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Chocolate Pie
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 425 calories per serving, if 10 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I can't believe that I took this photo in the fridge. What more
can a person ask for in the background other than jalapenos
and Cool Whip? A must for every refrigerator.

        I love chocolate anything, so a pie sounds like a little bit of Heaven. I also took the pie to school to share and hear what everyone thought about it. I loved this pie. It is extremely rich and all you need is a small piece to be satisfied. I came home with absolutely NO PIE, which means it is another thumbs up for Ree. Good Lord, I brought pie and cake to school on the same day and both were completely eaten before I drove into my driveway. YEAH REE!

Random Reflections - The Glorious Garden


These shade lovers are really a pretty flower
       The astilbe is a wonderful plant that grows best in the shade. Mine are in all shade and they are beautiful. The tag says that they can also handle partial sun.  Mine are a rosy pink color. The foliage is kinda like a fern. My flowers are about a foot tall and stand strong. This plant has been so easy to care for all year. Several times I have brought the flowers into the house for a beautiful bouquet. The flower blooms primarily in the spring and summer.  This one is a cinch!  Plant it!

Irksome Ideas and Images

         One of my pet peeves is call waiting. When I changed my company to Comcast, she asked if I wanted call waiting and I declined. Unfortunately, she put it on anyway. Even though my phone has this capability, I NEVER use it. First of all, when I tried it I did it wrong and disconnected both parties. What a drag.
         The reason I dislike call waiting is that I find it rude and disrespectful to the person you are talking to on the phone. I am not so important that I need to interrupt one call to take another, If it is important, the second caller will call again. If I am talking to someone who asks to put me on hold to answer another call, I tell them I will wait exactly one minute and after that they can call me back. I am not wasting my time waiting for anyone to take another call. How Rude!
