Knitters field trip

The clever ladies at Flying Fingers knitting store have thought up a very fun idea. They shuttle knitters from NYC out to their shop in the burbs...for free.

Hat tip to Alison


Perhaps I didn't make myself were suppose list recipe's that you make.
And if you guys make all of that complicated stuff,

Actually I don't care that you just listed your favorite things to eat.

That's fun too!!!

Sandy sent her favorite appetizer recipe! Thank you Sandy!

Here's my favorite appetizer recipe:

Taco Turkey Tortilla Pinwheels

8 Burrito-size flour tortillas
8 ounces sour cream
1 package taco seasoning mix
1 pound deli turkey sliced thin
8 ounces finely shredded Mexican blend cheese

Mix taco seasoning mix and sour cream. Spread evenly over 8 tortillas. Top
with turkey and cheese. Roll up each tortilla tightly into a log.
Refrigerate logs for an hour, or until a few minutes before serving. Slice
each log into 8 equal slices. Enjoy!

My Red Velvet Cake

I received this recipe from Mrs. Jeffery in 1980.

It is my son Patrick's favorite cake! The frosting is time consuming but it is the most delicious frosting in the world! I kid you not!

And I know frosting.

Red Cake

1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 T. cocoa
2 oz. red food coloring
1 t. vanilla
1 cup buttermilk
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon vinegar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Cream shortening and sugar well, add eggs. Cream until fluffy.

Make paste with cocoa and food coloring-add to mixture.
(I use one oz. red food coloring and fill up the same bottle with water for the second ounce :o)

Mix vanilla/salt with buttermilk. Add to mixture alternately with flour.
(Start and end with flour)

Mix soda and vinegar and fold into the batter.
Do not beat.

Bake 350 for 25-30 minutes.

Frosting for Red Cake

5 Tablespoons flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cook 5 T. flour and 1 cup milk over a low flame-stirring constantly- cool.
Cream 1 cup butter add 1 cup sugar and 1 t. vanilla.
Add cold flour mixture.
Beat this on high for 15 minutes.
Stop and scrap every five minutes.

It will look like whipped cream.



Ya know what was really fun about asking for favorites?
I now know exactly what my Patrick would love to eat!
Potato soup is on the menu on Easter weekend!

Perhaps I will have everyone fill out a favorites list :o)

Encourage one another...and thank you for the fantastic comments!
