Week 55 Wednesday (1/28/15)

Recipe Review       
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Resolution: Orange Smoothie        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages: 6 - 7      Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 227 calories per serving, if 5 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

            I absolutely love this smoothie. It is similar to a orange dreamsicle.  The fruits are so smooth and refreshing. The calories are low and this one will also be a great breakfast drink for me. In two recipes, I now have made 10 smoothies to enjoy over the next 10 days. My fruit count will be greatly improved after this weekend’s cooking.

The first items I put in were the yogurt and mini carrots

Oh, I just love both bananas and honey

Ree suggested using frozen peaches and mangos.
I love these Great Value packages.

It looks brown in the photo,
but it really has a very orange tint

Here is one of the single servings

The bubbles show the creaminess

Gabbin’ About Gratitude

         I am thankful for Raffaele Esposito of Naples. The website below claims that “In 1889, this wonderful chef created the modern day pizza.  No one really knows when the first pizza was made or who created this masterpiece. Raffaele created his pizza for Italy’s King Umberto I and Queen Margherita.”
         I purchase my favorite pepperoni and black olive pizzas at Pockets on Kirk Rd. in Aurora. They aren’t making this one for a King or Queen, but just a lowly teacher who considers herself  a pizza addict.

Memory Musings

         I was reading through old calendars that I found while cleaning out the basement. I came across a time, when I was being hypnotized by someone, named Damon. My Mom and our friend, Sue Johnson and I, went to some hotel in the suburbs to be hypnotized. The goal was to help with weight loss. We were in a conference room with about 30 people. After about an hour this Damon fellow, came over and told me that hypnotism would never work for me, because I internally refuse to give my power to someone else. Today, I think that remains to be true. It was a good try.
