What the Beck???

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:  Mystery Rolls
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 86 calories per serving, if 28 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         I ate one of these mystery rolls and fell in love immediately! There is nothing better than blue cheese. This is a fast, easy side dish that can be ready to eat in about 15 minutes. I was eating two of these in the middle of the afternoon as a snack, and they were amazing.  Another major Ree success!

Here were my ingredients

I melted the cheese and butter

Cut up the biscuits

Baked and ready to eat!

Bucket List Update

1953  From Here to Eternity
         starring: Burt Lancaster, Montgomery Cliff, Deborah Kerr, Donna                            Reed, and Frank Sinatra
         plot – A story of Pearl Harbor that explores the relationship                                     between two privates and their sergeant.
         I have seen the famous kissing scene of Burt Lancaster and Deborah          Kerr on the beach before, but this is the first time I actually watched          the entire movie. I liked the antics of the two privates and enjoyed          the entire movie from beginning to end. A KEEPER!
1956 Giant
         starring: Elizabeth Taylor, Rock Hudson, and James Dean
         plot: This is the story of a Texas cattleman who deals with oil being                   found in the state, and wanting to stay a cattle rancher. The                            story also deals with racism in the 1930’s and 40’s.
         I just watched this movie, and I loved it from the beginning to the          end. Rock Hudson was wonderful in this role as was Elizabeth                        Taylor. James Dean, as always, was a great “bad boy.” I had a hard          time watching the racism directed toward the Mexican population in          this movie. It is hard to see such hatred. One of the best parts of the          movie was watching Rock and Elizabeth age from young to old                        in this flick.  This is a MUST WATCH!
1961  Judgment at Nuremberg
         starring: Spencer Tracy, Maximillian Schnell, Marlene Dietrich
         plot – Tracy is an American judge presiding over the Nazi war                            crime trials. The men are charged with war crimes against                   humanity.
         I was surprised how much I liked this movie. I knew about the trials,          but I can honestly say that I learned a lot watching this film.                         Amazing acting by Spencer Tracy!
1964  Dr. Strangelove
         starring: Peter Sellers and George Scott
         plot – this was a satire about an accidental nuclear attack by the                            United States against Russia.
         This was one heck of a strange movie.  It was so ridiculous and silly          that I had a hard time with watching it.
1972  The Emigrants
         starring: Max von Sydow and Liv Ullmann

           plot – This is the story of Swedish immigrants who sail to                                   Minnesota after a famine forces the people to flee their country.          This was a very long, but factual movie about the Swedish                            immigrants to Minnesota.

A Mysterious Visitor

                                  One day I came home from work, 
and found this little friend. 

This is a view of the underside of this bug,
insect, prehistoric thing.....

This is the view from the top
Okay my brilliant Science friends,
WHAT IS IT?????????

    This guy stayed around for several days.  It looked like a leaf, and yet is wasn't too bright, because it had hundreds of plant choices to hide on, but it chose my window screen.
