For her birthday I made a banana cake. The recipe is sooo weird, but sooo moist and good!!
A boxed cake mix, 1 can of diet Sprite or whatever flavor soda you choose. Blend cake mix and Sprite with mixer and bake as directed. That's all!! No eggs, oil, milk. Just Sprite. Then top it with Cool Whip and serve it cold. YUM!! I had a friend who used chocolate cake mix and Dr. Pepper. She said it was great. Oh yeah, use the soda room temp. I added it cold and the cake didn't rise in the middle. I filled it up with Cool Whip and leveled it off! No one noticed.
I'm ready to decorate for fall. I pulled out this pillow and wall hanging I made.
I bought some fall leaves and fake pumpkins and gourds to decorate my window box in front of the house. I haven't decided how to keep the stuff inside the box yet. If I use floral foam I am afraid it will blow out. I guess I could tape it in like you do a floral arrangment. Any suggestions?
We have had hurricane rain all the way up here in Missouri. It's been raining for three days. It's supposed to stop today. I hope. Tomorrow my hubby and I are going to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to celebrate our anniversary. We got married there 9-1-00. All I remember was the lady performing the ceremony got wide eyed and started staring at my legs. A huge bee was flying by my legs and about to go up the leg of my shorts!!! I don't remember a word I said, yeah, yeah, I do..... I do.. Yes we got married in shorts. We had "wedding clothes" but we had reserved a place to get married that was supposed to be at a scenic lookout. How beautiful we thought in the AR mountains. When we got there it was a little place in the road where you can pull over to the side to see the view. Just a little crook in the road!!! I said I'm not getting married here. We went to the hotel to register and told the front desk lady our story. She said, "I can marry you! We have a beautiful gazebo down by the pool. " We said meet you there in five minutes!!! It was about 105 degrees that day and we said what the hell, lets wear our shorts. (We did put on our "good clohes" and went out to dinner that night.) Before we checked out of the hotel I asked the lady if she could print out the vows that we had said because I honestly had no idea what was said!!! She printed it out and we said it to each other again when we got home. Awww... how sweet. We had a great time and are hoping to have a great time this weekend. The weather is supposed to be good this weekend.
