One my list for Christmas this year: yamaha digital grand piano! I haven’t been able to con my father in law out of his, so now I want one of my own! I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I have a little bit of knowledge in playing one, as I used to play around with my grandmas back in the day, so with the help of some lessons I should be good to go!!
Now is only Santa would be a sweetie and bring my my wish list!!!
Have you seen the commercial for Sonic that the two guys are talking, and the one says “jenna said what” in response to “Je ne sais quoi”. It gets me every time, and then that phrase is in my head for the next few hours! The next saying that will be in my head is clubman pinaud… only because pinaud is fun to say. I have no clue as to what this means, but saying it is fun.
What other sayings once you hear them, get stuck in your head for the rest of the day?
So the oldest has requested this to be made soon. I told him that I would, but would hold them hostage until he mows the lawn for me!! Ha, we shall see if he actually does this!
1-2/3 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 to 2 tablespoons milk
In a bowl, beat the eggs, sugar, oil and pumpkin until well blended. Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt; gradually add to pumpkin mixture and mix well. Pour into an ungreased 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until set. Cool completely.
For icing, beat the cream cheese, confectioners’ sugar, butter and vanilla in a small bowl. Add enough milk to achieve spreading consistency. Spread over bars. Store in the refrigerator. Yield: 2 dozen.
With the re-do of our living room, one of the casualties was my bookcase. The bottom half of it was ruined with the darn dog peeing over in that area. Thankfully for her…. she didn’t get any on the photo albums that were on the bottom shelf; that would have been the end of her as well! So I am now on the hunt for a book shelf. I can always check out Baker Furniture, but really don’t want to spend alot of money on one. I am thinking a Wed/Fri thrift store shopping trip is in order for me and a friend. I need to get all of the books and other what nots off my dining room floor and table.
Let the search begin!
