July 4th


Happy 4th of July to all those who live in the states.   Tom mowed the lawn.  The kids romped, and I baked a cake, did a bit of thrifting, and worked on some exciting plans for my fall classes.   We'll be eating dinner with my parents and my aunt and uncle in a few hours. It is a good day.

The recipe for the flag cake is from here. Deb says that the people at her party raved and gushed about it.  I'll let you know how it went on my end. Why the disposable tinfoil pan?  Because, as it turns out, I don't own a 9" x 13" pan (I know!), so I had to act quickly.

Have fun! Splash! Yum! Boom! And, all of the rest.
