What the Beck???

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location: Sweet Spicy Smoky Roasted Almonds
Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

I figured out that there are 433 calories, if 20 (½ cup) servings are made. (Please note that the calorie counts vary depending on the specific brands of ingredients that you choose to use.)

         This one was a big hit with many people. I shared this creation with Denise Barnett and daughters, and some of the library staff, and a few others.  These almonds are full of flavor and just plain addictive.

         I did learn from my last attempt at cooking in the electric oven. Ree said to stir the almonds halfway through, but I was fearful of another burnt dish, so I stirred it every five minutes (nothing like overdoing it).  I had to cook them a few minutes longer, but it was worthwhile.

These are the ingredients that I use to create this recipe.

Before I began mixing the ingredients, I browned the 
bacon, and set it aside to use after the almonds were 
baked. Of course, I forgot to take any pictures of 
the beginning steps.  Good Lord I am a mess today!

Here are the almonds after they have been in the oven.

Once they are baked, the bacon is 
added and stirred together.
Done and done!

OMG - Snakes again - but
this time it is in MY YARD!

I think this is a long garter snakes.
What if I am wrong???

Denise - HELP
Is this a baby cow snake??

It was so darn long that I tried to throw it over the fence 
using a broom handle - but it didn't work.
I basically convinced it to go through the fence.
My heart was going a mile a minute, but
I was determined to get it away from my dogs.
