Christmas Play

Sunday our youth performed their Christmas play.  They always do such a great job.

It was hard to get a good picture that showed everyone.  All the youth participate and even some of the adults.  Our pastor said he thought this years play was the best one yet (of course, he says that every year!)

This beautiful kingfisher came by for a visit the other day.   Grace did a good job of getting his picture.

She also took this picture of our sky the other day.  We have been having beautiful weather here.  We are in the low 50’s right now.  It is cloudy today though with wind.  I think we are supposed to get some rain later on.  We are hoping it holds off for a little while as Hubby is working on my car.  I don’t know if I mentioned it or not but my car is not working.  Hubby thinks it might be the distributor cap.  He is replacing that today.  We are all praying that fixes it.

We have been doing school this morning, laundry, etc.  All the things that seem to build up during busy weekends.  I am making some homemade rolls to go with supper and I also am trying a new recipe for homemade yogurt.  I’ll let you all know how it turns out.  I really like the idea of homemade yogurt but I REALLY prefer the taste of flavored store bought yogurts.  I am just not very fond of plain yogurt-kinda tastes like sour cream to me.  Anyway, this recipe has jelly in it.  We’ll see.  I don’t want to say much about it until I have tested it.

Time for lunch for us.  We are having homemade chicken noodle soup.  Tonight’s supper will be meatloaf sandwiches (on homemade buns), fries (using our home grown potatoes) corn on the cob (frozen from our garden).  I love it.  Eating fresh made and home grown.  I hope you all have a wonderful day and God bless.

Honey Bun Cake Recipe

This is my honey bun cake recipe.  It is really easy but oh so delicious.   1 box yellow cake mix, 4 eggs, 3/4 cup oil, 8 oz.sour cream (or sour cream substitute).  Mix ingredients, spread 1/2 mixture in a greased 9X13 cake pan.  Sprinkle 1/2 of the following mixture on top–1 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp cinnamon.  Spread remainder of cake batter on top sprinkle remaining brown sugar mixture on top of this.  Swirl batter with a butter knife.  Bake at 350 degrees 35 minutes or until done.  For the glaze I use 2 cups powdered sugar, 2 tsp. vanilla and 5-6 tbsp evaporated milk.    Drizzle glaze on while cake is still warm and enjoy.  I would like to take a minute to thank my friend Marie for this recipe.  She is one of the best cooks I have ever known.  Unfortunately, Alzheimers has robbed her memory of many great recipes but every time I make this cake I think of her.  I hope you all enjoy it as much as we do.  God Bless.
