This Past Weekend




Although I was supposed to be in Florida this past weekend,...  this past weekend was actually one of the most fun-filled, family oriented weekends I've had in quite a while. My daughter Amanda and her two boys, Brendan and Jacob, along with Kayla and Elliot spent the whole weekend together.  I picked them up from their house Friday night and armed with p.j.'s and pillows, we began our weekend adventure,  Kayla had a scrumptious dinner ready.  Elliot was so happy to see the boys.  We ate, played games, watched t.v., read, did laundry and washed dishes (ALOT!).

The girls made Valentine wreaths.

They all contributed to making Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments.  We used heart cookie cutters and valentine themed ribbons and McCormick's (think spice) recipe.  The house smelled so good.


While looking for a recipe for King Cake, I found an extremely easy version using crescent rolls form Relish, and while we did not have the required color sugars (yellow, green, purple), we did have pink.  Soooo, in honor of the upcoming Valentine's Day, ours was a "Valentine Cake."  There are so many versions of this recipe on the internet, some using raisins, some with colored frosting.  Choose one, try it.  It's an excellent dessert and one we will be making again soon.

How was YOUR weekend?

Affectionately,

Trish
