Recipes_From_The_FridgeWhile making a standard Southern version of No-Bake Cookies, Cleave tried the originals, and found at first he didn’t care for them because of the oats in them, but changed his mind after the second day. The he couldn’t help himself. He then suggested I try making them with some other kinds of cereals. So I tried toasted oat O’s, then he suggested we just don’t use any grains at all, and set them in a 9 x 13 pan and cut them like fudge. Just WOW! Using E.S.P (Experimentation, Sensibility, and Practicality), we came up with an amazing candy that was an instant hit! Hope this works out for you as well as it did for me.

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft

Fun Factor:★★★★☆ 

Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft is the most painful and hardest game that I ever played. This game is more then Dark Souls. This game is like PS3 game Uncharted, but in the 1990s. This was before Uncharted. In this game, you have to find a strange ancient meteorite that crashed millions years ago. Lara is on her quest to find this meteorite. The first level was hard at first, when I figured things out I got used to it. After the first level, the game will get hard later on.

I hate the island in the South Pacific. That was most frustrating levels in that game. First you got look everywhere for a door or a key, then I had jump big giant leaves to go to plain crash, and finally, not least, jumping in the river and get eaten by piranhas! The graphics has changed from the first two games, but has some great texture and details.

quest_for_camelot_front_largeIt was the 1990s and animated movies were outstanding, no matter whether hand-drawn or computer animated. The tales come from the studios of Disney, Universal, and Warner Brothers were amazing, and our millennial kids could not get enough of them. The Magic Sword: Quest for Camelot is one of those movies. A new take on the Arthurian legend, this focuses on Kayley(Jessalyn Gilsig), the daughter of Sir Lionel (Gabriel Byrne) and Lady Juliana (Jane Seymour). Kayley is enamored with all the ideals of what a true Knight of the Round Table stands for, and wants to be a knight just like her father. At this time, the kingdom is very prosperous and at peace, but too peaceful for one knight in particular. Sir Ruber (Gary Oldman) has become greedy, and looks to take Arthur’s land for himself. To do this, he must obtain Excalibur, and after attacking Arthur to steal it, Sir Lionel is caught between them and takes a fatal wound. Ruber succeeds in getting the blade, and gives it to his hench-creature? Griffin (Bronson Pinchot) to fly back to his keep for safe-keeping.

Zootopia : Welcome to the urban jungle.

ZootopiaAs if it is possible for Disney movies to get any better, they keep do! Zootopia is one of those kinds of movies that you can keep watching over and over again and never get tired of, which is pretty much the standard with many Disney movies. This story takes place in a very modern city, but it is the “tail” of Judy Hopps (Ginnifer Goodwin), a cute little bunny from Bunnyburrow, one child of over two hundred children of Bonnie (Bonnie Hunt) and Stu (Don Lake) Hopps, that want to be a police officer in the city of Zootopia. The country folk of Bunnyburrow think she will fail, and should be a carrot farmer like her parents, but she is determined to prove them all wrong. A while later, she is off to the police academy, training in all kinds of climates and terrain. All the other recruits are large predators or bigger herbivores like rhinos or hippos, but Judy uses her bunny gifts and dexterity to rise above her problems and soon graduates at the head of the class.

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150Broccoli and Pork Tetrazzini is a recipe I just fashioned from the top of my head, and it turned out so well, it seemed like it was time to share it with the world. Not too quick and easy, but satisfying and comforting. Great in any season, and with about 15 minutes in prep and 30 minutes baking, this will be a big hit at a potluck dinner after church, temple (if pork is permitted), oak grove gathering, or anytime you need something for that party that you know will make the guests talk about it all month long and ask for the recipe. Okay, time to share!
