Week 44 Tuesday (11/11/14)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Caramel Apple pie and Perfect Pie Crust
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
         Pages:  279 – 281 and 286      Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 548 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.)

The photo doesn't show the hill in the middle.
It was chocked full of yummy apples.

         OMG! This is a wonderful pie. I loved the way the apples mixed with the toppings and the caramel. I had leftover apples and topping and just put it in the oven in a small ramekin. I actually sat in my recliner enjoying the warmth and goodness of this mini treat. Now, I am a crust girl and that is all that was missing. When I had a small piece of the actual pie, my thoughts were confirmed. Everyone at Mom’s house who had the pies said that they were wonderful.

My Beautiful Toes

         I can’t believe I am actually writing about this, but I must admit when I am wrong. I am not really into manicures and pedicures, but this weekend was fun.
         I must admit that I will continue to get a monthly pedicure because it really is wonderful.  It is a pampering experience and my feet look better than they ever have in my life. I was not a girly girl as a kid, but I do like this experience. Jenny Anderson was there when I arrived and she convinced me to put a gray colored nail polish on my toes. I told her it would be awful and they would look dirty, but then changed my mind and tried it. I hate to admit it, but she was right. Here is the proof:

          I am not going to continue having manicures because I ruined the one I had within the first two hours. I cannot just sit still and wait for the nails to set. Sharon, from Tranquility, did an excellent job, but I totally ruined four nails. What a bummer!
         So, for the future it will be a monthly massage and pedicure for this girl.

My Gorgeous Girls

         Today is not about my gorgeous girls but about two beautiful dogs met over the past weekend.
         Two days ago, I was at Walmart at 7 a.m. and saw a man in a wheelchair trying to reach spices. I offered to help him if he needed something on the top shelf. We struck up a conversation and I complimented him on his service dogs. I asked if I could take a picture and he consented. These dogs were beautiful and definitely on the job.

Thank Heavens for working animals who make a positive difference in a person’s life.
