What the Beck?????

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Steak Bites
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 342 calories per serving, if 4 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

       OMG these are wonderful! Now, this could be because I love meat, or because it was so flavorful, or because Ree totally knows what she is doing. Whatever the reason, these steak bites are the perfect side dish for any meal. For breakfast, this steak would be a great side for eggs. This extra protein in the morning is a great start to the day.  For lunch, you could add these bites to a salad to make it a little heartier. Of course for dinner, you could put them in pasta, mix with skewered vegetables, or even stack them on a bun. They would also be great in a burrito. I personally, just ate them all alone on a plate. Yum!

Here are my ingredients

Gosh is this tasty!
Don't ya just want a bite?

Bucket List Update

1934  The Barretts of Wimpole Street
         starring: Norma Shearer and Fredric March
         plot – The love story of Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning.         
         I really liked this old movie. I didn’t know much about the love                        story of Barrett and Browning. It was a truly interesting story.
1937  In Old Chicago
         starring: Tyrone Power and Alice Faye
           plot: This is the story of the O’Leary family and the Great Chicago.
                     I was so impressed with this movie. Being that it was 1938, I had low                                                   expectations for the cinematography. How could they create the Great Chicago                                   Fire in those days? They did a wonderful job with the special effects, and I really loved                       this movie.
1938  La Grande Illusion
         starring: Pierre Fresay and Jean Gabin
         plot – A World War II film about two French soldiers who are                        captured and put in a German camp. 
         OMG – this film had captions to read, and. I was exhausted                   after the first fifteen minutes. It was awful. Most of the                   time I could figure out what was happening, but I truly                   hated this film.
1947  Gentleman’s Agreement
         starring:  Gregory Peck and Dorothy McQuire
         plot – A reporter is trying to gather information on anti-semitism,               so he pretends to be Jewish. He has a really hard time dealing               with the hatred. 
         This was a fabulous film from beginning to end. Gregory Peck was          great in this role, and his reactions to the hatred were so realistic          and moving. This one is a must see. Set your DVD!
1950  King Solomon’s Mines
         starring: Deborah Kerr and Stewart Granger
         plot – a lady tries to hire a guide to hunt for her husband who is               lost in the middle of Africa, at a time where little was explored.
         I loved this movie. Filming in untamed Africa was eye opening to          me. I really have no desire to ever travel there, but this historical          view of the country was impressive to see. I learned a lot about the          tribes that lived there at that time.

The Old Neighborhood

Our house has changed a lot. I really like it being
gray with dark green shutters and door.

The new addition hasn't changed too much,
but the houses are hidden by the foliage.

The elevator house is radically different

Rascher's house is a big mess.
I wondering what they are doing to it.

Potter's replacement house

The Burger's house hasn't changed much

Stopka's house is huge!
I miss the old neighborhood, when life was simple.
