Week 47 Tuesday (12/2/14)

Recipe Review                
Today’s Recipe and Location:            Turkey Tetrazzini        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays

I figured out that there are 459 calories per serving, if 14 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

Here is one I made for Mom

I kept eight for myself because this one is marvelous

It looks so darn good

                 This is fabulous turkey tetrazzini. It is rich and creamy and oozes goodness. Now, I have had a lot of turkey tetrazzini but Ree adds a final step that makes this unique among the other recipes. She sprinkles a whole cup of Panko bread crumbs on top prior to cooking this dish. The final product is rich and creamy with a little crunch that made me sooooo happy. This is a must for all of that leftover turkey that you have in the fridge.

         I ate this for lunch and it was amazing. I had put some in the freezer and after I thawed it I was thrilled with the flavor.

Christmas Movies – Special Entry

Here are some of the movies I have enjoyed over the Thanksgiving Break.

         Christmas Shepherd – a wonderful touching story about a woman whose dog escapes during a storm and ends up with a little girl whose Mom has passed away. Of course, it is a given that the two adults will find each other and join because of the shepherd.  Expected ending, but a cute story.

         Let It Snow – I really liked this one. It starred Candace Cameron-Bune and Alan Thicke. Candace’s character is sent by her father (Thicke) to investigate a resort/lodge with the goal being how to change it to a retreat for a desiginated age range. Her Mom had died when she was young and Thicke retreated into himself, thus ignoring his daughter for a lot of her life. She works for him to gain a bond, which crumbles when she disagrees with her Dad. It ends happily, and I enjoyed watching Candace enjoying the holiday season. It made me laugh and smile.

Christmas Under Wraps – Another Candace Cameron-Brue movie. This time she is a doctor who expects a fellowship at a major Boston hospital. After she is passed over, she takes one in Alaska. It is not what is expected and she has two nurses, two orderlies and herself as the hospital staff.  She is swamped but falls for the local handyman who just so happens to be Santa’s son. I liked it.

A Dog Named Christmas – This one has been my favorite so far. Of course it, is because it made me cry. This one is about a dog that is adopted for the Christmas holiday only. The goal of the father is to teach his son to keep an agreement. The boy does what is expected but there are many twists and turns in this plot I ended up disgusted with the Dad. How can you return a dog to the shelter when you have fallen in love?  This is a keeper.  I have already watched it two times.
