41 days to go. 34 recipes to make yet….I decided maybe I should make my self a list…so I can see the whole picture…with out flipping through The Pioneer Woman Cooks for the 80millionth time..yes a list was a good idea. So it will be hung up on the wall by the microwave by my cookbooks…right where I can see it, and it can see me. Yes, the time is finally drawing near I am 1/2 way done with my Sheila and Ree Project.
No offense Ree but this has really been enjoyable and easy. I have loved or at least liked everything I have made so far. It’s no wonder you are a star Lady! This cook book ROCKS. And I absolutely cannot wait to give it away to one of you crazy people, I love, that read this….PLEASE don’t leave me once I am done with this project…I don’t know what I will do with out you. Sorry it’s getting late and I am gettin sappy.
OK let’s get crazy….how about I will give you 1 extra entry for every new person that you get to comment on my blog and 5 entries for every person that you persuade to become a follower. Hey! post a link to Strawberry Cake on your face book and and I will give you another 5. Wowza! Now we’re talking.
Tonight I made Ree’s sister Betsy’s Pasta dish. I had helpers….Cece helped me take the tales off the shrimp (only a few were eaten in the process), Ainslie helped me make the sauce….patience, patience. This was my daily dose of patience making a fine, yummy sauce with an eleven year old. HOLY COW!
Pasta Ala Betsy is a creamy tomato sauce with shrimp and basil, my kiddos chowed it!
Then for dessert I made Patsy’s Blackberry Cobbler…but I used blueberry’s from my freezer fresh picked from a Michigan blueberry patch. I was fearful to feed my family the “fresh” blackberries that are in the produce section right now… yikes people, I think I would rather wait for the farmers market in July. I wasn’t really a recipe rebel in this instance because Ree’s recipe states that you can use blueberries too! Woo HOO!
This is not the cobbler I grew up on, but it was very yummy! And EZ! I would definitely try it again, but next time I will rebel and sprinkle some cinnamon in there!
