I figured out that there are 344 calories, in ½ cup serving. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
Making this recipe was a hoot! I actually stood over the stove and grilled each ear of corn. Starting the grill would have taken much longer.
Ree taught me a fabulous new skill – how to remove corn from the cob using a Bundt pan – no fuss no muss. Is muss a real word??? One again - a brilliant idea from Ree.
This corn dip was so tasty and wonderful. My Mom and Ron also really enjoyed its sweetness.
Bucket List Update
starring: Walter Huston and Ruth Chatterton
plot – A really rich couple tour Europe, and make many friends. She has a fear of returning home where she feels she will grow old.
This woman irritated me. At first her character was just having fun, but then she becomes obsessive and won’t return to America. He so wants to go home and she selfishly refuses. It was a very good movie.
1943 The More the Merrier
starring: Joel McCrea, Jean Arthur, and Charles Coburn
plot – The movie is set in Washington DC, during WWII, where apartments are hard to come by. Two men and a woman all share an apartment.
This was a cute movie. The roommates are funny. The premise was a good one and I really enjoyed this one.
starring: Laurence Olivier, Jean Simmons, and John Laurie
plot: Prince Hamlet thinks his Uncle has murdered his father, the King of England. Hamlet must decide if he should kill his uncle.
When I taught eighth grade, I was thankful that my teammate taught the Shakespeare unit, leaving me to teach To Kill a Mockingbird, which is my favorite book. This movie is well done, but just not my cup of tea.
1949 Twelve O’Clock High
starring: Gregory Peck and Hugh Marlowe
plot – Peck plays a strict general who takes over a bomber group. The men are feeling low and have almost no morale.
I loved this movie. Gregory Peck is so believable as the general who is a no nonsense leader. The men are so down and out and have no faith in their abilities that Peck has his work cut out of for himself.
This is an outstanding movie!
1950 Born Yesterday
starring: Judy Holliday and Broderick Crawford
plot – This is the story of a man who takes his silly, blonde girlfriend to Washington, D.C. with him.
This movie is the stereotypical dumb blonde movie. Thank Heavens most of today’s movies have evolved to appreciate all women, regardless of hair color. What a ridiculous thought – hair color and intelligence. It must have been a man who came up with that thought.
What is it really???
