What the Beck???

Recipe Review

I figured out that there are 500 calories, if 2 - 3servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

This is just your one of your basic scrambled egg recipes. Unfortunately, I can’t give you the recipe because it is only in the book. This will be the base for all of the recipes for the next few entries. 

 Here are the ingredients that I used in this recipe.

I stirred the ingredients together and cooked them until done.

Recipe Review

The Florentine Scramble below is a great one if you love spinach, tomatoes, and cheese in your egg recipe. The ingredients are not my cup of tea, but I thought you should know that this can also be found in the book.

This sounds so dumb because I image all of you know how to make basic scrambled eggs. Just wait until the next entry when I  
make Ree's Santa Fe Scramble.

Bucket List Update
Academy Award Nominated Movies

 1933  42nd Street
            starring: Warner Baxter, Bebe Daniels, George  Brent, Ruby Keeler, Ginger Rogers and                                  Dick Powell
            plot – This is the story of a Broadway show and the drama that happens when trying to get the                        show up and open.
            This was a good movie. I wanted to fast forward at times, but that is because the topic                         didn’t thrill me to death.

1934   Imitation of Life
           starring: Claudette Colbert, Louise Beavers, Warren William, and Alan Hale
           plot – a widow syrup salesgirl finances her way into opening a restaurant, incorporating, and                          packaging a product. There was another huge conflict with a young black woman who                          refused to let anyone discover she was black, as she was very light skinned.
           This was a great movie!  I loved the drive of the widow to become a success. I loved what she              became, but felt great sorrow for the girl who couldn’t accept what she was until the climax.

1934   The Thin Man
           starring: William Powell, Myrna Loy, and Maureen O’Sullivan
           plot – This is a Nick and Nora Charles mystery. It is about the death of an inventor. This is the                      first movie in a series about the detective couple.
           This was a really good movie. The premise was strong, and I learned something new. I am a                crossword puzzle freak, and I now know a common answer asked by the puzzle maker. They                frequently ask the name of the Charles’ dog. The answer is ASTA!!! Yeah!

1935    A Midsummer Night’s Dream
            starring: Jimmy Cagney, Olivia de Haviland,  Dick Powell, Mickey Rooney
            plot – to me it was just the story of a bunch of Shakespearean actors in the forest with a lot of                       mythical creatures.
            This was an awful movie to me because I dislike reading, watching, or listening to                               Shakespeare. I will say, however, that Mickey Rooney as Puck lightened it up and made                       it tolerable for me.

1935    Top Hat
            starring: Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers
            plot – neighbors dance their way across Europe.
            I liked the beginning of the movie, but there was so much dancing that I hoped it would end                 soon. It was a cute story.

Birds Birds, Everywhere!!
 This photo was taken while I was on the Tollroad (88).
I have never seen some many hundreds of birds at one time.

 The sunset was beautiful, the birds were scary, and thank 
God there were no cars around me, as I snapped these 
pictures while driving very quickly (80 mph) to drop off food to my nephew Wesley and his fabulous wife, Lindsay!
