Good morning all! Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Always tell your loved ones how much you love them and never take them for granted.
I’ve been so busy this week. I left every night to do something. I still had time to prepare dessert for our church’s Valentine’s Day. Last night I made banana bread and brownies.
Do you remember when we were kids and always trying to catch up with our parents? Well, I was a pro, or so I thought. My mother always knew. I always wondered how she knew. When I became a parent, I understood everything. Moms have special powers and they’re better than a sleuth at sniffing out the things their kids are up to. Shannon was getting so mad because I usually knew what she had done before she got home.
In the late 1970s, again, Lisa Smith Favela and I were up to something. Her parents were going to take the kids to the lake and we begged to stay home, and they let us. As soon as they disappeared, we found the keys to the Impala and drove through Mansfield. We rode all the streets, we thought we were something. None of us had a permit. We pulled the big four-door car into the driveway just before they drove home. We were so proud of ourselves, we fired a quick shot at people. They park in the driveway and we’re all outside, and we’re clear. We were smiling inside. Then all of a sudden Jackson Smith leaned on the hood of the car and it was still hot after we wandered around town. We were arrested. He said, “Who drove that car?!” We had to admit, we got caught. We got in trouble, and you’d think that would have stopped us from doing more stunts. Of course, that was not the case. Oh, the good old days, driving that car was fun, worth the trouble. Can I say that I could convince Lisa of just about anything? I was the instigator. I can only imagine the shock on your faces.
This week’s recipe is another quick cake recipe. This is from my friend, Ronna Watts. She is one of the best cooks I know. She can tackle anything and make a meal out of leftovers and just about anything.
Now don’t think it won’t work because it will and I made it with blueberry and it was good. I will try with cherry next time.
ANGELS CAKE WITH BLUE FRUITS
1 dry angel food cake mix
1 regular-size box blueberry pie filling (you can use any flavor you like)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, stir together dry angel food cake mix (do not add water) and pie filling until well combined. You don’t need to grease the pan. Pour the batter into a 9×13 cake tin and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, depending on your oven. One of my ovens gets hotter than the other. It will puff up when cooked. Leave to cool, you can garnish with fresh whip or icing of your choice. I just put butter on mine and ate it like a blueberry muffin. Enjoy!
