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!

Grayson Highlands State Park & VA Creep Trail, Virginia

I was going to do 2 separate posts for this camping trip but it was only very quick weekend trip back in July of this year. Enjoy the vlogs from that day. We had a ball, such a great trip!!
1st part was our hike on Wilburn Ridge. 2nd day was our bike trip on the VA Creeper Trail. I think one of the most uncomfortable parts of the trip is riding in a huge van with people you have not a clue who they are... you just know that you are going to all be riding the trail. They van you up the mtn & you bike back to Damascus, VA. It is a 17 mile bike trip. Very easy. Not too much work at all.
One of our favorite state parks to camp at in VA is "Grayson Highlands State Park". We love this area 'cause you have the opportunity to bike the "Virginia Creeper Trail". Yes, we did make another hike adventure to "Wilburn Ridge". If you click each those names it will take you to our previous trip back in 2015. We took this trip in July of this year. What we love ab…

North Bend Park, Virginia

North Bend Park, John H. Kerr Dam, Virginia. It was kind of rainy, kind of sunny. partly cloudy. It was a bit iffy, but we still made time to kayaking. Had a ball. The clouds & sun were playing on the waters, what great times to take photos. ( O : =  
This area has so many different campground on different parts of the dam/lake. I believe this is the 3 different one we have visited so far, I'm sure the hubby has the others in the plans for later on... never know what he has up his selves. giggles. ( ; 

Enjoy enjoy the vlog from that day. Thank you for stopping by, do take care. Beth ( :
