I really have nothing to write about. Life if pretty quiet and slow around here. We're still just waiting. I think I need August to end. It's really a terrible month (sorry to those who have b-days in Aug.). I don't mean to offend anyone but August is intensely hot and muggy, there are no holidays, Russia shuts down... it's an oppressive month. They should delete off the calendar. September, however is an excellent month. It's my birthday month - nice and coolish, can't wait till August is over.
OK, enough of that. I'm feeling better finally - That rotten cold lasted about 2 weeks. Thanks for all your concern and nice words, it helped!
Here in Texas, we have great Mexican food so I thought I'd share one of my favorite and EASY Mexican desserts - It's very rich so consider yourself forewarned!
Tres Leches (3 Milk) Cake
1 yellow cake mix (with pudding) baked as directed in a 13" x 9" pan
1 can evaporated milk
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup rum (or to taste - or not at all)
Blend all of the ingredients above in a mixing bowl
Poke holes in the cake with a fork all over.
Pour the topping mixture over the cake.
Let mixture absorb completely in the refrigerator.
Cover with whipped cream and sprinkle sweetened coconut over top of cake.
Optional: Add cherries and/or pineapple on top
Yields: 10-12 servings
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Enjoy and have a great day!
Thanks sooooooooo much Carolyn for the fabulous baby books! You are the sweetest, most thoughtful girl I know and I'll treasure those little books and think of you when I read to my babies.
I'm so happy for you and Jim and your little one to be. You are going to be such a loving, wonderful mom and I can't wait to meet your munchkin in February!!!
