Time for some pussy pix for all you pussy (heh heh heh) lovers out there.
Meredith and Nyla checking out the birdies. The yellow lid in the background is part of my large wheeled recycle can (goes out every Tuesday). I usually fill that can every week.
Nyla caught in a "who me?" moment with a mousie toy.
Meredith passed out in the sun. The bird feeder is right outside; keeps them entertained for hours!
This is a lemon loaf cake I made on Wednesday. I made 2: one for us and one for spouse's potluck office party.
What's NOT in it? High fructose corn syrup, artificial anything, preservatives, additives. You can pronounce all the ingredients and I made this cake for about $1. BOO YAH!
What's in it?
2 cups all purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 stick butter (melted)
1/3 cup milk
1 tablespoon lemon extract
preheat oven to 350 degrees.
dump all the ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray; pour batter into pan.
- bake for 55-60 minutes until a tester comes out clean. your oven, YMMV.
while the cake is baking, mix 1/4 cup lemon juice and 1/3 cup sugar together. heat on stove 10 minutes, stirring constantly.
as soon as the cake is removed from the oven, pour this hot liquid on top. hear the cake sizzle! watch it soak up the sticky liquid!
keep cake in pan for 10 minutes, then remove from pan to cool completely on rack.
A little something I am creating for next year's blogger-rama-lama-ding-dong. I bought the yarn in Boston back in 2011 when I went to visit my boyfriend Dave and his husband Mark.
This is Dave; ain't he just the cutest thing?!? :)
6/21 marked the 24th year since my cancer surgery. Blobby and I are lucky to have survived; Bob's sister and Sean's mom are still fighting. Send them both good karma/vibrations, please; cancer sucks major ass. :(
JayInVA mentioned raisin bread in the comments of my last post, so yesterday I made malted raisin bread. Here it is, hot outta da breadmaker:

This is the wood (heh heh heh, I said "wood") bread slicer I mentioned last time. Put the bread in there and run the electric knife thru the slots. You get a slice like this:
A light schmear of butter on hot bread - damn that's good! Next up: potato cheese bread.
Where do I get some of my bread ideas? Right here!
