Week 41 Saturday (10/25/14)

Recipe Review                   
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Broccoli-Cheese Soup
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 316 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         Boy, was this a hit at school. At school, I shared it with six different people and had great reviews all around. I even went so far as to buy wheat rectangular rolls and cut  out the centers to make a bread bowl. It was so Panera of me. My fabulous neighbors said it was bland. Joe Serpico said he would like a little spice so Nicole and I agree that adding red pepper flakes or cayenne could give it a lot of zip. 

Random Reflections – Garden Art
Various pond turtles

       Over the years my students have given me many items for my garden. One of the items that I love the most, are the various pond turtles. I have several that are made out of different materials. They are so cute and add a lot to the pond area.

This one is made of plastic

This one is my favorite, and it is made
of a cement-like material

Helpful Home Hints

Since I have been purchasing new clothes, I am trying to get ready to change seasonal clothing – I must give it, keep it, or throw it away. I have gone through most closets, but I have to keep reminding myself that just because I love something, it doesn’t mean that I should keep it long after its value has faded. I love items that leave memories, but I have decided to take a picture and get rid of the object. Purging can be a wonderful thing.
