God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

If I Knew You Were Comin' I'd 'Ve Baked A Cake!

A song made popular by Eileen Barton (hit #1 on the charts in 1950) that came to my mind this morning as I decided to bake a cake even though no one ever comes here.  It's not much of a cake ... a small box of Mrs. Fields White Chocolate mix topped with Betty Crocker Whipped Fluffy White Frosting (gag). I'm not a big fan (not a fan at all actually) of canned icing but I couldn't find the frosting mix I always used in the past so I decided to try this.  It looked good on the label & it's actually not too bad in real life. It's edible which is the important thing.  I can't remember the last time I made a cake. Eaten cake ... yes; made a cake ... I can't remember   : )   Once again it's not much to look at.  Rather plain, but I like plain.  I am plain.  Shirlee Plain & Tall.  Sounds like a good title for a Hallmark movie   : )
Dinner today is going to be a reprise of our Killer Potatoes (see detailed posts here & here).  We haven't had these for a while & our hearts & hineys say "Thank you!"  Ah, but these Killer Potatoes are SO good!!!  I think I am more excited about eating these than the cake   : )
I hope you have found something yummy to stuff your tummy with today   : )

Can you print the recipe for those yummy potatoes?

Yummo. I buy whipped cream icing from the bakery and keep it in the freezer! For chocolate, I use the milk chocolate or the whipped in the can. Not bad at all on banana cake. And thank you very much, now I want cake.

Okay thats a new one for me I have never heard of frosting coming from a can before I can see how it could be handy though and who dosnt love cheese on their potatoes?
