Week 52 Monday (1/5/15)

Recipe Review                     
Today’s Recipe and Location:                    Pasta ai Quattro Formaggi        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 355 calories per serving, if 9 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

You can see all the yummy cheese!

         I LOVE cheese!  This little recipe hosts four different cheeses. The dish only took me a few minutes to create and it would be the perfect side for any meat dish. I love having pasta as a side dish because it is really filling, and what could be better than something with a lot of cheeses.

Random Reflections - Bucket List #40

         I found this list and thought it looked interesting. I may be able to knock off two bucket list items at the same time. I will need to cross reference this list with the Academy Award nominees and see which movies are on both lists. That will insure I do this promptly. The website where I found this list is:

Why Weight?

       I am trying hard to enjoy this vacation without focusing at all on my weight. I still am not wearing my FitBit, but I am going to Curves and counting my calories. I am just going with the flow and trying something new.

Wants and Wishes

         For years, we have enjoyed the poetry of T. S. Eliot. His writing has been read in high school and universities across the nation. My favorite quote from T. S. Eliot is:

“Sometimes things become possible if we want them bad enough.” 

         I truly believe in this quote. When I wanted a new home, I began working three jobs until I had the money to build one. I am extremely good at delayed gratification. I think that this is a failing of the Me Generation. When I want something, I am willing to work hard to earn the money that is needed to obtain it. There is true joy in working hard for what you want.
