Baking For One Can Be Tasty

June 6, 2017

Good morning.  Tis another gray, wet day but the weatherman promises warmer temps and sunshine as soon as tomorrow.  Gosh, I hope so.  The rain is good, but I need the warmth of the sun to build up some energy.  The older I get, the more sun I need it.

Yesterday Kevin and Janicee came by and Kevin raked up all the tall grasses that Joe had cut down on Sunday.  The rain had let up a bit, but I guess cutting all that tall grass spread out a lot of new allergens.  Poor Kevin, I felt so bad for him.  I'll have to remember not to have him doing any yard work when the allergens are high. 

Once the kids left, I crocheted for a while, then had a nap.  Goodness, it seems like taking naps and figuring out what to make for supper are becoming my new daily projects.  Pogo and I were so hoping to get out shopping but we're waiting for a warm sunny day.  So maybe later this week?

Last week when I went grocery shopping, I thought I would try a new product.  Duncan Hines has muffin and cake mixes called "Perfect Size For 1."  I bought a box of Chocolate Lovers cake mix and a box of Blueberry Muffin mix.  You make these in a coffee mug, and it only takes one minute and ten seconds to bake in the microwave.

That first night, I made the chocolate cake.  Oh my, yum yum!  Two different mornings, I've made the blueberry muffin to have with my coffee.  What can I say?  Absolutely delicious!!  I recommend these for anyone who doesn't want to make a whole cake or a whole batch of muffins.  For folks like me, the whole cake or batch is just too much.  These are perfect.

Today I think I'll play on my laptop for a while.  I have a couple new kits that I'd like to try, and I have some ideas for quick pages.  Fathers Day and the start of summer will be here soon, along with new photos needing to be scrapped.  Plus I have another kit to re-package and post.  I guess I have enough to keep me busy all day. 

It's raining, and all my little birds are congregating near my porch to let me know that the bird feeder is empty.  I just took a few minutes out to go outside and fill up the feeder.  While I was out there, I looked over to see if mama Robin was on her nest, and she was. 

 Well, the morning is quickly disappearing, and I'm wanting to play a bit on my laptop.  So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a fantabulous day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Yes aren't those little cakes and muffins just perfect. I am going to take a look and see if I can find the molten lava cake that I told you about the next time I go grocery shopping.

So sorry to hear how the allergens affected Kevin. Poor kid, I hope that this doesn't turn into a major Asthma ordeal for him.

Happy to hear that Mama Robin was on her nest. That is so sweet and I wish her a lot of success with her new babies.

Now I must go and hunt up something sweet since I have seen the muffins and cake and remember how good they are.
Tell Pogo that Cisco and Auntie Beth send lots of sniffs, and cuddles and kisses... Big Hugs to you from both of us... Love, Beth xxx

hat quick bake sounds good. And yes, for one it is often too much to bake a batch. This sounds just great.
I'll soon have to go to prepare dinner. We will have baked potatoes(from a package, the potatoes are already cooked and they taste just delicious) and a little sausage and some tomatoe salad and then strawberries for desert. Sounds good hey?
In the mean time I can have the scan of the computer on(it is not so good when it scans and I am doing things, makes it slow).
so have a wonderful day,
