Notice how big this bird is. The solar lamp beside it is about two and a half foot tall.
I sure love this little critter!
MY NEWEST RECIPE
On Sunday I made up a new recipe. I love it and Patty-Jo suggested I write it down so I don't forget. I think some of you might like to give it a try too.
I had some of last years Fugi Apple harvest in my crisper drawer that were beginning to look more wrinkled than me, so I peeled and sliced them.
In a 9X13 baking pan, I melted a cube of butter, then stirred in about a cup and a half of brown sugar. After it was all mixed, I added a cup of chopped pecans. (It's sort of sounding like Pecan Praline's, isn't it?) YUM!
I layed the sliced apples over top
Then I mixed up a spice cake mix according to directions except I only added two tablespoons of oil instead of the half cup it calls for. I also added a teaspoon of cinnamon, a half teaspoon cloves and a teaspoon allspice. (Store bought cake mixes never have enough spice for me). After the cake was mixed well I poured it over top the apples, and baked it at 350 degrees for about half an hour. I tested with a toothpick to be sure the center was done.
As soon as it came from the oven I inverted it on a large cooky sheet, and had an Upside Down Pecan Praline, Apple Spice cake. I can't describe the fragrance, but if you can try to imagine caramel apples with spice, that's pretty close.
I wasn't going to admit this but I tried to do a Paula Deen, you know how she always tastes her recipes while they are still steaming? Well don't ever do that. My tongue is still sore. We can't believe everything we see on TV!
After it had cooled a bit, I had a big piece with cool whip. Delicious!
This is a recipe worth trying. And you can use any flavor cake you want.
Well this is all for now. I hope you are having a really great week, and you and yours are well.
Don't forget to say your prayers.
