I just discovered this morning that if you click on my tags it says there are no entries for this tag. I've also had issues with changing my profile picture. I've been contemplating moving to blogspot or wordpress for awhile, and think maybe I will. Does anyone have any recommendations for me?
We enjoy having cookouts in our yard, so last evening we invited the church over for a picnic. It was an enjoyable evening. Last week Krista helped me make this to serve at the picnic.
It all got drank, and I had lots of fun today washing all the bottles....not! Ah well, it goes with it!
Here's Tim and Sam doing a good job getting all the meat roasted.
Some more pictures...
After supper some of us ladies played croquet.
I also babysat Collin yesterday while the team went and had a prison service. He was quite smiley for us.
Tyler went home with a friend, so it was just Tim and I and baby. Kind of like being young married again!
The last couple of weeks we've been picking lots of these from the garden.
We've been eating them fresh, I made acouple batches of jam, made raspberry icecream, and I found a recipe for a cake that we really like. Although I made it for supper, it would be great served as a coffee cake for breakfast.
Royal Raspberry Cake
1/4 cup butter 1/2 cup sugar 1 egg (o.k. this is half the recipe, and the whole recipe called for one egg, so I beat the egg up with a fork and added half. The other half I gave to the dog.) 1/2 cup milk 1/2 t. vanilla 1/4 t. salt 1 1/2 t. baking powder 1 cup flour 1 1/2 cup raspberries
3/4 cup powdered sugar 2 T. hot water 1/4 t. vanilla
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat 1 minute. Combine milk and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients. (I wrote that just because that's the way recipes are written. I usually just add the salt and baking powder to the batter, beat it in, the add the flour. Saves a step and a bowl.) Add milk alternately with dry ingredients, beating well after each addition.
Spread in greased and floured 8 or 9 inch round cake pan.
Sprinkle with raspberries. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes or when center of cake tests done. Cool ten minutes. Combine glaze ingredients. If to thick add more water. Drizzle over cake. Serve warm.
I Love your receipes and they fondly bring back memories of your mother and "days gone by" for me. I remember so well how we would all get together when the trio (dads) would practice singing--or maybe you were too young??? My dad recently made a audio recording of the trio during a practice--and
