Wednesday Evening Update: The Ginger Pear Cake that I mentioned earlier was *delicious!*
The cake had a delicate lemon-buttermilk flavor.
And the brown sugar-pear topping was amazing! Thank you for the wonderful recipe, Tracy. I'll definitely be making it again!
Hello everyone! First of all, I want to say that blogger has been giving me trouble when I try to comment, but it appears to be fixed now, and I will be around soon.
Several of you asked about our Easter plans, so I will share them with you. We are taking this week off from school and I had plans for a lot of gardening projects, but it has rained non-stop. I guess that will make weed pulling easier next week!
I am having a friend and her daughter over for a visit tomorrow. We went to Michaels this afternoon for some egg decoupage supplies and I will be sure to share pictures of the finished creations. I'm going to make Tracy's Ginger Pear Cake for our snack.
The girls and Benjamin have new outfits and shoes for Easter. I still need to get their Easter baskets put together. They know the Easter bunny isn't real, but we still like to pretend. I want at least some of the credit for the goodies. :0) On Sunday, we will attend our church's beautiful Easter service and then go to Nana and Papa's house for dinner. We are still working on the menu details, but we usually have ham and scalloped potatoes, plus all the trimmings. The girls like to help me make a bunny shaped cake and I'd like to come up with another "lemon" dessert. Maybe lemon meringue pie.
Well, there's a bit of Easter chit~chat for you! How are your plans coming along?
