What the Beck???
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!!!!
Today’s Recipe and Location: Sweet Potato Fries
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog
I figured out that there are 178 calories, if 8 servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)
I loved these fries! Before I began cooking Ree’s recipes, I had never even tried sweet potatoes. Now, I absolutely love them. I think that these have so much more flavor than regular old fries. Try’em.

|Chopping up the yummy sweet potatoes|
I love the color
|This is the marinade mix that coats the potatoes|
|After being coated in the marinade, |
I spread them on a lined cookie sheet,
and baked them until crispy but not burned
|The final step is to make the dip|
|Grab a fry, dip and enjoy!|
Another recipe that will definitely always be included in my holiday cooking is her Sole Sweet Taters which is basically sweet potatoes covered with brown sugar, pecans and other goodness. That recipe is in her holiday book. Have you purchased all three of Ree’s books yet??? Why not???
Bucket List Update
Academy Award Nominated Movies
1932-33 Little Women
starring: Katharine Hepburn and Joan Bennett
plot – this is the fabulous classic about the lives of four sisters and their Mom.
Katharine Hepburn is the perfect Jo! She was outstanding in this role. I loved every minute of this original movie.
2014 American Sniper
starring: Bradley Cooper
plot – this movie shows the horrors of war, and how hard it is for our soldiers to readjust to life at home.
Bradley Cooper was amazing! I had a hard time watching the violence, but it is a good reminder of what our troops are doing to protect out lives.
1934 Flirtation Walk
starring: Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler
plot – A West Point Cadet falls in love with his officer’s daughter in Hawaii.
This was a good movie, but it was a predictable plot. The acting was well done, however.
starring: David Oyelowo, Carmin Ejogo, Oprah Winfrey
plot – A well written and acted story of the Civil Rights movement, and the violence in Selma.
This movie made me irate! How could we (the white population) have been so hateful? I understand that it was a different time, but the ignorance made me ashamed for our ancestors, and the choices they made in Selma.
1936 The Great Ziegfeld
starring: William Powell, Luise Rainer, Frank Morgan, and Ray Bolger
plot – The life and times of Florenz Ziegfeld.
I loved seeing the follies scenes. The costumes were beautiful and the music fabulous.
