This is the first week of fall so I think it's about time to swap out my flowers. I have had geraniums on my front porch all summer and impatiens out along the front of the house. But I'm thinking this weekend might be a good time to pull them up and put in some fall pansies.
We are working with our church this weekend to clean up and "beautify" one of the little suburbs of Charlotte called Matthews. That will be taking up my morning. Then I have to go get my hair colored and cut. And Mark is coming home for the weekend, too. But I hope I will have some time to work in my yard!
I want to make some Cornbread Cake, too. The name sounds so different than what it really is. My sweet little neighbor, Melissa made some for a party I went to recently and when I tried it I loved it. It is so moist and not "cornbready". It is similar to Blondies. Here is the recipe:
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 t. vanilla
4 eggs, beaten
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1 1/2 cups self-rising flour
Preheat the oven to 350. Spray Pam in a 9 X 13 pan (baking dish). Stir together sugars, eggs, and oil in medium bowl. Then stir in flour, vanilla, and pecans. Stir till smooth and finely mixed. Spoon into baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes. Enjoy!
Steve has decided to help teach 3rd grade R.A.'s this year on Wednesday nights at church and then host a Men's Bible Study at our house afterward. He has all his guys over right now and I wanted to make the cornbread cake for them to munch on, but I didn't have time.
Is anyone else having a major gas shortage?? There is NO GAS anywhere near my house! It is nerve wracking to be getting low on gas and not be able to find any. Only two gas stations anywhere near here had gas tonight and both of them had lines that were at least 30-40 cars long...I'm not kidding! This is crazy!
PS-I decided to turn my music back on for a while...just change it up a little bit! I've missed it. :)
