What the Beck???
Today’s Recipe and Location: Cheesy Sausage Rigatoni
Found in: Food Network/The Pioneer Woman
I figured out that there are 247 calories per serving, if 18 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
I love, love, love this dish, because it is so flavorful and cheesy. The best thing about it is the Italian sausage. I also love making this in the summer, because I can walk out my back door and use fresh parsley right out of the garden. This one is a keeper! The calories are low, but I was totally full for the entire afternoon. Anything that can keep me full is totally worthwhile.

Bucket List Update
1933 A Farewell to Arms
starring: Gary Cooper and Helen Hayes
plot – they meet, got separated, and then eventually got back together
Who knew that Helen Hayes was so beautiful as a kid? I only
remembered her from the movie Airplane as the little old lady stealing aboard the plane.
1937 A Star is Born
starring: Janet Gaynor, Fredric March, and Andy Devine
plot – a struggling actress gets help from an alcoholic movie star, but their marriage is in trouble when she becomes a bigger star.
Okay, I must admit that I thought this was going to be like the Barbra Streisand movie, but this was different. I did like the movie, but found myself annoyed that he couldn’t be happy for his wife and went off and felt so sorry for himself. Really?
1941 Here Comes Mr. Jordan
starring: Robert Montgomery and Claude Rains
plot – a boxer dies before he was supposed to and then gets a second chance to return to Earth.
As I was watching the movie, I realized that I knew this movie. The remake was called Heaven Can Wait and starred Warren Beatty. The original was just as good as the remake!
1946 The Yearling
starring: Gregory Peck and Jane Wyman
plot: A poor Florida farmer’s son takes care of a fawn
I have a love/hate feeling about this movie. The relationship between the boy and the fawn is so sweet. I had to close my eyes when the family dogs were fighting a bear. It upset me because I hate to watch animals fighting. I hated the ending because the fawn was killed just like Old Yeller. I wanted everything to end happily – what a drag!
starring: Ernest Borgnine
plot: two self-proclaimed unattractive people discover each other
I really liked this movie, but I had a hard time trying to remember this character instead of thinking of Borgnine as McHale. It was a nice thought that there is someone out there for everyone.
