The Fall Season Is My Favorite Time Of The Year
Giveaway Coming Soon!
The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes---Oh my, if you count my gray hair I've seen way too many.
I don't know if it's the family get together, the leaves turning and falling or maybe the good baking going on in the kitchen, I just love this time of year. The picture above is a wedding party, but some of our family gatherings were as large as this one.
Being from Texas, the fall season is very short and not celebrated like further north. We stay hot until you have to start thinking about Christmas. I have found the further north you go, they celebrate fall with full force. How nice!
I plan on having a giveaway just because thinking of this season makes me happy and I hope to have a giveaway now each month until the end of the year at least. So keep checking back with me. It may be a handmade item or an antique treasure or something from the online store. Just leave a comment when I post it and help spread the word of the giveaway.
Well it's still hot here so I thought I would post a recipe that is so good.
Mandarin Orange Cake
1 Pineapple Cake Mix "yellow"
1 cup of Oil
1 can of Mandarin in juice
Combine all ingredients
3 layers or 9X13 pan. This is good with 3 layers to get all the icing in the layers, but you can also bake it in a tube pan, much easier.
Bake as cake mix states on box, depending on pan used.
1 can Crushed Pineapple with juice
Big box of Instant Vanilla Pudding
Mix together until mixture thickens, fold in large container of Cool Whip
This recipe was given to me by a quilting friend that would come to the store to quilt and always brought a goody with her.
