Forty days to go. Thirty-four recipes to make, I decided maybe I should make my self a list so I can see the whole picture without flipping through The Pioneer Woman Cooks for the 80 millionth time. 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 & Ree Project.
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 rock! I absolutely cannot wait to give it away to one of you crazy people, I love, that read this don’t leave me once I am done with this project! I don’t know what I will do without 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 shrimp 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 easy! I would definitely try it again, but next time I will rebel and sprinkle some cinnamon in there!
