Week 62 Sunday (3/22/15)

Recipe Review      
Today’s Recipe and Location:           Krispy Eggs        
Found in: The Pioneer Woman Cooks: A Year of Holidays
                  Pages:  96 - 97     Copyright:  2013  Harper Collins

I figured out that there are 167 calories per serving, if 12 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         If you are a fan of Rice Krispies treats, then this is a recipe for you. They only take a few minutes to make, and they would be cute on an Easter table. Ree added multiple colored sprinkles, but I only used red and pink. I took 11 over to the Serpicos and the results were:  3 out of 3 ate them in a minute or two. They liked the surprise on the inside, too.

I began by getting out all of my ingredients

Melt the butter

Add in the marshmallows and melt'em

Remove from the heat and
add in the Rice Krispies

Use a plastic egg and fill each half after
sticking a jelly bean surprise in the middle
Remove it quickly

A perfect egg with a surprise inside

 I used the egg carton as a holder

Don't they look like a fun food?

Trivial Triffles

         Yesterday, I was watching the extreme couponing show on T.V.  I used to be an extreme couponer and loved it. I saved a lot of money. I just wanted to reach 90% or more, and when I did, I stopped.  I set this goal and I am extremely driven to achieve all of my goals. Watching that show made me want to do it again, IF they have double coupon stores in Kentucky, then it would be so much fun to see how many grocieries I could get for over 90% free.  Oh to dream……

Memory Musings

         Denise McKeon was a student at ECC that I met in 1981. She was a foreign exchange student from Sydney Australia. Denise was so much fun. She wanted to experience everything she could in America that was different from her homeland. For instance, eight girls decided to go camping at Devil’s Lake in Wisconsin. Of course, none of us were campers, and we didn’t know that it was the first day of deer hunting season. So, basically it was eight girls and the rest were men who all seemed to have a dead deer hanging out of the back of their trucks.         
         Denise was in charge of bringing our dinner. She brought spaghetti.  Who brings spaghetti on a camping trip? We drove in vans, so it isn’t like we had supplies.  Denise came up with the great plan of asking the men in the next site if we could borrow a burning stick to start our fire. It was hysterical, but it worked.  We used “clean” snow and boiled up our spaghetti.  It was freezing that night, so my van left at 2 a.m. and the other followed an hour later.  It was a fun adventure, and one I will never forget.
         Another Denise adventure was going Trick or Treating. I guess I thought this event was held in Australia, but I was wrong. So five college girls decided to go out. We dressed up and everything.  What we weren’t ready for was the reception from the people.  They were actually hostile, until we explained,  why college students were in the neighborhood. One house suggested that we change our motive, and go trick or drinking to houses where we knew the people.  The owner gave us all shot glasses, and we continued on our way.  It was much more fun with our shot glasses.
