LIFE update


Sometimes it is just nice to show you what I've been up to. The weekend of March 17-19 ... it was a quiet & calm March weekend. The hubs and I jumped in the car and went to new kayakin' stop here in Virginia ... got a few rowin' moments in before a thunderstorm popped up. Rumbling away, we decided, we best be getting our butt out of the water, ASAP!! Wild how those thunderstorms come out of nowhere!! It was a gorgeous day, only took my Iphone. 



I made a homemade Angel Food cake. Have you ever had to get 12 egg whites? ... separating eggs is not an easy task. Ever needed cake flour before? Take a cup of all purpose flour, take out 2 TBS of that flour, put back in 2 TBS of corn starch. Simple as that!! NEAT, HUH??! Did you know that it take 30 mins, 2 have something become "room temperature"? I really did learn a whole bunch from this homemade baking recipe. SO FUN, not sure I will be  making another angel food cake a while ...but fun all the same. You see an angel food cake has to be inverted to cool ... no bottle that we have in the house is the right size to fit within my pan. So I got the coffee percolator, which was the right size, then to hold down the percolator I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. My brother did ask me, WHY DIDN'T U USE WATER N THE PERCOLATOR? Honestly, I didn't think that way? My Dad ask me, you know the cake is not flat, I didn't think about that either? Does a cake have to be flat to cool? No clue??! It was delicious, by the way, with fresh strawberries and everything. YUMMY GOOD!! Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Enjoy your day! Be Well & Be Blessed! Beth ( ;

Next time you make one cut it across in half..layer it with black raspberry ice cream (or the ice cream of your choice) and freeze it..Yummy

A woman has to be inventive now and then Beth. lol The angel food cake sounds good but 12 egg whites?? wow. That's a lot of separating.

Homemade Angel Food Cake,YUMMY! My Mom used to make it that way all the time, but that was when we had chickens on the farm and more eggs than we could use.It is the best.

My mother used to make angel food cake, and then break it up and put it into a strawberry pudding.

Had to laugh about putting water in the percolator...but it does sound delicious.
What a lovely cake (and innovative way to cool it)...I've never made an angel food cake. I didn't know you can remove 2 T of flour and replace with 2 T corn starch to make cake flour!

Little Pee Dee State Park, South Carolina

Happy Labor Day!! I always wonder about this thing called Labor Day, who decided to call it that? Was everyone in labor or what? Here's what google thinks: "A public holiday or day of festivities held in honor of working people, in the US & Canada on the 1st Monday in Sept. in many other countries on May 1st".

"Little Pee Dee State Park", Dillon, South Carolina. I think this was one of the most friendliest state parks, meaning the camp hosts actually stopped by, asked us where we were from, how long we were staying & just really went out of their way to make use feel welcome and thanked us for stopping by.
I don't ever recall visiting a state park that has ever had dirt roads & I do wonder what they would be like on a rainy day? I bet they would a muddy mess. My Dad had to tell me that my 3 great aunts used to visit this state park when he was younger Mat, Meta & Min were there names. I only knew Meta, who made it till her 99 bday... sadly s…

Before we get into the good amazing pics I am going to share today ... let me talk a bit of every day life ... what has been happening with me. The hubby and I went on a trip over 2 wks ago ...to enjoy a Casita rally in Arkansas, was hoping for cooler temps. It was a real ball. Met lots of new friends and got to see some super awesome buddies. I had gone all summer not seeing in copperheads and was super happy about that ... was hoping my go for copper was going well ... well during that rally i got to see one and then came home to start my yearly fall chore of raking leaves and there was one to greet me. LUCKY ME. not!!! All good ... life goes on ... but Let me tell ya it was not fun.
