What the Beck????

Recipe Review
Today’s Recipe and Location:  Lemon Bars
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 189 calories per serving, if 24 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

       I love lemon. It really doesn’t matter what it is, but I find lemon to be refreshing. I usually have a pitcher of lemon water in the fridge. These lemon bars were a hit at school and with the staff. This is another quick recipe that is a perfect summer dessert.  I know I would love in any season – but that’s just me.

I forgot to take photos of the steps
and ingredients. Oops!

These were so summery.
I loved them!

Bucket List Update

1935  Alice Adams
         starring:  Katherine Hepburn and Fred McMurray
         plot – A middle class Mom and daughter try to rise above their                  social status.
         This was a good movie. It was interesting to watch a very young          Katherine Hepburn act so starved for social acceptance. I felt a                        strong message about accepting who we are and our social          s              standing.
1937  Stage Door
         starring: Katherine Hepburn, Ginger Rogers, Adolphe Menjou, and               the young Lucille Ball and Eve Arden.
         Plot:  This is the story of a boarding house full of actresses and               their lives.
         I liked this movie because of the dynamics between all of the women.          They are supportive, and yet competitive. It was a great story about          women living together.
1938  You Can’t Take it with You
         starring:  Joan Arthur, Lionel Barrymore, and Jimmy Stewart
         plot:  Big business is trying to buy out an entire neighborhood. This                 is the story of an eccentric family.
         This was a fun, silly movie. I loved the eccentric family filled with          inventors, dancers, and more, as well as their friends. Jean Arthur is          the “normal” daughter who stands out in the crowd. This bizarre          movie won the award for 1939.
1940  The Great Dictator
         starring: Charles Chaplin and Paulette Goddard
         plot – Charlie Chaplan plays two different roles in this movie: a               Jewish barber and a Hitler look-alike dictator.
         This is one of the weirdest movies that I have ever seen. Charlie                      Chaplin is wonderful at depicting the two characters. He resembles          and sounds remarkably like Hitler, and that it almost made my skin          crawl.
1946  The Best Years of Our Lives
         starring: Frederic March, Dana Andrews, Hoagy Carmichael, Myrna                  Loy, and Virginia Mayo
         plot – three World War II veterans try to restart their lives after                returning home.

           I liked this movie. It was hard to watching the men returning home          and trying to adjust to the real world. One of the men is a banker          who favors vets. The second has a lot of trouble holding down a job,          and the third feels he is pitied by his girlfriend. I can’t imagine                        what they were going through at that time.

Such cute little babies!

Apparently, I am not ready for action shots,
or I need to take a photography class quickly.

These are several different families of geese

These two were so young and sweet
