Week 44 Wednesday (11/12/14)

Recipe Review              
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Skillet Cornbread
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                           Pages:  268 - 269      Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 290 calories per 6serving or 217 calories per 8 servings.  (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         This was such an easy recipe and the cornbread came out golden. I will be using this cornbread in the following days for Ree’s dressing recipes. I did have a bite and enjoyed it. I am interested how it tastes in a dressing recipe as this is a new one for me. I made the Basic Thanksgiving Dressing on Sunday night. Wait for that yummy recipe tomorrow.

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am thankful that Megan Mkrtchjan introduced me to Ree Drummond, the Pioneer Woman. I really enjoy cooking and baking using Ree’s recipes. I love her style of cooking and really enjoy eating her food. She has given me the tools I need to become a good recipe-following cook. Thanks so much, Ree!

Memory Musings

         My nieces and nephews are the light of my life, but there are also three other special “honorary niece and nephews,” that mean the world to me. My best friend, Donna Dowd, has three special children who are like family to me. I was blessed to have been the fifth grade teacher for all three of them.
         Patrick is the oldest son and is a trained professional chef. Pat is outgoing and fun to be around. He is also a great Euchre player, and has a wicked sense of humor.
         James is Donna’s second son. He is quiet and soft-spoken. When James speaks, it is important. He has a quick wit and is actually the person who named this blog – even though his sister tried to take the credit. What would I have done without you, James.
         Meghann is the girl of the family. She is such a love and is friendly and outgoing. Meghann looks for the best in everyone. She always makes me feel so special and loved.
         These three kids, oops – they are now grown-ups, bring great joy to my life. Thanks Donna and Bill for raising three amazing adults.
