Just A Day At Home
I worked in my flowerbeds again today. I found that my hydrangeas
are coming back to life. I was so happy to see these new leaves.
I have babied these things because I have wanted them for so long
and the only thing I have ever done is killed their predecessors.
So I am very happy to see it made it though the winter.
I found these tiny blue flowers in among the weeds.
That is what I love about spring and gardening is the
surprises around every turn.
I baked today. I have my freezer filled with last years
peaches so I need to quit hoarding them and bake something
so today I dug out this cook book.
I needed to get outside to work in my flowerbeds so I didn't
have a lot of time to dilly-dally, so this was perfect.
It is called a Dump Cake but it is just a really easy cobbler.
1 yellow cake mix
1 can(29 oz sliced peaches with juice.) *see note*
1/2 to 1 stick of butter or margarine (thinly sliced)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Grease a 9x13 inch pan. Spread half of cake mix evenly in bottom
of pan. Pour can of sliced peaches and juice evenly over the cake mix.
Cover the peaches with the rest of the cake mix, then slice butter
on top. Bake 50 minutes until golden brown.
*Note* I don't know if I could ever make the recipe the way it says
to save my life. :) I used my frozen peaches which were so frozen, I had
to hit them on the counter to break them in pieces. Then I had to bake
it about 1 hour. My peaches cooked down really well.*
My kids do like this blogging about food as they get to eat
the photo op leftovers. My daughter said she thought it was my regular
cobbler recipe so it is a easy and fast desert that I will be trying again.
I am putting this picture in for Janette today.
She has a blog called Janette's Sage.
I have joked maybe we were twins who were separated.
We have six kids, we have home schooled our kids over
20 years. We both had a hope chest growing up and the other
day she did a post called Stones of Remembrance and she
said she had a Fertile Myrtle Doll. I couldn't believe it
and she wanted me to post a picture of it so this is for her.
When you keep having babies the remarks that you get would
curl your hair. People say things that just should not be said. I mean
I would never say to someone, " Why don't you get a T.V. or things
like that. My Mom would not call me by my name but called me
Fertile Myrtle and so I have the doll.
I hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!
