Happy Hump Day....
I wanted to share this little owl book my
friend Pat made for me.. Isn't it cute..
she stamped the owl and colored it with Copics..
(someday I will have more than 3 of those pens)
I made the alphabet tabs to make it into an address book;
Thanks "Aunt Patay" you are the best...
One more thing...
A pineapple pound cake.. it was good
but VERY sweet. If you like pineapple upside down
cake, you will like this. It is a recipe from "Sandra Lee's
Money Saving Meals" ... well, let me know if you liked it. Jen
Pineapple Pound Cake
1 8oz. can pineapple slices, drained, reserve juice
1 16oz. box pound cake
2 eggs
1 16oz can pineapple juice
1/4 c. water
1/2 c. brown sugar
2 T. butter
Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a 9 by 5-inch loaf pan with cooking spray and set aside. Remove 3 pineapple slices from the can and reserve the juice and set aside. Chop remaining pineapple slices into small pieces and set aside. In a large bowl combine the cake mix, eggs, and 1 can of pineapple juice. Blend with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and beat for 3 minutes on medium speed. Stir in the chopped pineapple and combine well. Pour into the prepared loaf pan. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick, inserted into the center of the cake, comes out clean, about 45 to 50 minutes. Remove and cool completely. In a small pot over medium heat combine the reserved pineapple juice and 1/4 cup of water. Add the brown sugar and butter and bring to a simmer. Add the remaining 3 pineapple rings and saute for 4 minutes or until the sauce thickens slightly. Remove from the heat. Reserve. To serve, remove the pound cake from the pan and transfer it to a serving plate. Arrange pineapple rings on top and secure with toothpicks, if necessary. Pour the sauce over the cake and enjoy...
