Week 50 Sunday (12/28/14)

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Thai Chicken Wraps        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

       I have no idea why I skipped this recipe. Talk about not carefully reading the recipe. I actually like everything in this wrap. I think I skipped it because it IS a wrap. I am usually not a big fan because they are frequently filled with veggies. This one has cucumbers and carrots – two things I love.
         I really love the marinade in this recipe. In the upcoming days, I will review a wonderful Thai recipe that begins like this one. I didn’t know how much I loved Thai food. Ree is a pro with Thai.  I actually already have many of the unique oils she uses in this recipe. This is a keeper.

Trivial Triffles

         Every winter, I spend time in the evenings working on a puzzle. This simple activity is fun and calming. I have so many puzzles that it is fun to rotate them. I usually begin with the outside border and then focus on the middle. My intention is usually to just spend a few minutes working on it, however if I am not careful, hours can pass without my knowledge. I leave the puzzle out on the dining room table where it is out of the way. Put out a puzzle and relax.

Memory Musings

         My first college experience was when I attended Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City, Florida. I was completing basic courses, but all of my electives were in the secretarial area.  I loved taking shorthand and accounting. I think what really made this experience wonderful is that three or four of the Stopkas also attended this school at the same time.  I know for sure that Kathy, Brian, and Laura were there when I was there, but I am not sure about Mary. I never had any classes with them, but it made it fun that all of us attended the same school. A happy school memory.
