Week 11 Sunday (3/23/14)

Recipe Review       

Today’s Recipe and Location:  Almond Cake
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman Blog

         I love almonds and anything made with them. This cake was so easy to make. It was sweet but also moist. I like that it was a sheet cake. Way to go Ree.  As you can see, I had a lot of critics to share how wonderful your recipe is to all of us.  Thanks!

Today’s critics:
         Today the reviews come from my elementary school.
         Jodie McKnight and Deborah Pauling both said it was very good.
         Jen Adams shared, “It’s delicious and I love the complex flavors.”
         Sarah Gress said, “It reminds me of almond crescent cookies and it tastes really good.”
         Joyce Simkus stated, “It’s nice. I like the frosting.”
         Jenny Anderson shared that it would be good with raspberries. “It’s delicious and frickin’ good.”
         Amy Geyer  just said, “Mmmmmmm that is yummy.” She also thought it would be good with strawberries.
         Sara Gilroy thought it was lovely.
         Rachel Friend shared, “It is really good!”
         Tom Caepert also said it was really good.

Trivial Triffles

I just finished reading a Rebecca Caudill nominee for 2015 titled SLOB by Ellen Porter. In the book she gives a quote from Thomas Edison that was great food for thought.

“I have not failed. I’ve just found the thousand
ways that won’t work.”
Thomas Edison

         I love that he looked for the positive when things were not going well instead of focusing on what he did not or could not do at the moment. He really was a brilliant positive man.  I would like to aspire to be more like him.

Memory Musings

I have spent a lot of time looking through old photos this week.  My Aunt Ada let me borrow her photographs and make copies of them for my files.  It is so much fun to look at our family from long ago.
         At times I am reliving an event in my head as I study the pictures. I laugh at the hairstyles and clothing and enjoy the events as if they are happening again. 
         Thank Heavens for photography.
