Fresh Apple Cake

I have been craving apple cake lately.

Apple cake probably does not sound good to anyone except me and maybe a ninety year old woman. I decided that Emily and I would make one this week. It is baking as I type. It might not be worth a flip, but we had fun making it.

Some Emily funnies:

Last night we were watering our flowers on the patio. There were some pink flowers in particular that were VERY wilted. Emily said,"Mom, these flowers are so sad!" Then she went to the planter with her watering can and said,"Oh girl, I'll help you get up."
Later on that night Emily asked if she could go out and see if those flowers had gotten up.

Emily calls Little House on the Prairie "Little House and the Fairy." I don't know who she thinks the fairy is. She is pretty fond of Laura.

Apple cakes sounds GREAT to me. I am not a huge fan of sweets so I much prefer apple cake, carrot cake, spice cake (and all without icing!).

You are so funny! I love apple cake too. Makes my mouth water thinking about it. My mamaw used to make some mean ones. Also some molasses stack cakes too. Those were good but I prefer the apple ones. Hope it was good!

I love apple cake!
Love apple cake. We won't talk about how good it is piping hot with vanilla ice cream. No. Talking about it adds calories, ha!
Emily-isms are so cute!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
