Week 42 Monday (10/27/14)

Week 42         MONDAY

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Mummy Dogs
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                           Pages: 228 - 229       Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 159 calories per serving, if 16 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

I wrapped them in crescent dough and left a little gap,
 so I could put in two drops of mustard for scary eyes.

They are just beautiful when brown.
They tasted great!

         I loved these little mummies. Maybe, they were so good because I haven’t had a hot dog in more than six months. I loved the dough and just added mustard to top this off.  I think they turned out really cute and I would definitely make them again. These would be extremely popular with kids.

Why Weight?

It seemed like I worked hard this week, but only lost a pound. I do have to remember that my metabolism and age may play a part in my current slow down. I guess I should and will be thankful that it is a pound lost instead of gained. At times like this, I have to remind myself to be positive and always try to look on the bright side.

Wants and Wishes

         I want my windows to last until I move. This morning there were some condensation on all of the windows at the bottom and right above the middle where the window locks. Bummer!   I know that is not a good sign, but I need to save my money rather than upgrade the windows for someone I don’t even know. Ohhhhh – that sounded a bit harsh. What I mean is that I don’t want to spend my money here, but save it for my new Kentucky home where I might need to replace their windows.
