Good Morning, dear hearts..
What a beautiful day here in Eastern Canada..
Did you notice the deer in the blue dawn of the morning??..
The one with the injured leg is there that I posted about HERE... ..
He is doing fine although his leg is stiff from the ankle down..
His friends left him once but came back for him while he finished eating something out there.. Must have been apples.. smile..
He finally left with them..
I think he winked at me on his way past the window.. grin..
Just posting our Sunday night Supper..
Notice my new wee gravy boats from the Thrift store..
Along with a couple of Wedgwood type glasses..
Supper was grilled chops, mashed potatoes, gravy, my homemade sauerkraut, salad and a parsley dressing..
Dessert was Pumpkin and Raisin Cake with Caramel Icing..
Here is the recipe for the cake..
It is from my Mennonite cookbook..
More Food That Really Schmecks..
Edna Staebler from 1979.
It is a St. Patrick's day dessert she says..
Laurie Bennett's Pumpkin Ring..
1/3 cup of shortening
1 1/3 cups of sugar
1 cup of pumpkin
1 2/3 cup of cake flour
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. clovcs
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup chopped nuts
2/3 cup raisins..
Cream the shortening and sugar.. Stir in egg and pumpkin.. Mix together the dry ingredients and add alternately with water. Stir nuts and raisins in by hand.. (I just used a cup of raisins) ..
Pour into a greased tube pan and bake at 350 degrees F. for 40 to 50 minutes..
She says this cake is as light as an Irish Mist..
The Irish in me loves that.. grin..
The icing was out of this world good...
When we were across to Maine last month I picked up a little package that you add to icing...
It was made by you know the cake mixes that start with a D.
Sorry, I can't remember.. smile..
Anyway, I just mixed up a batch of icing and added it..
Terry loved it so I had to hide the cake... grin..
This is a short post..
I made a nice long one last night and lost the whole thing..
I couldn't get it to publish so left the page and it disappeared..
Here is the short version and I will try to do another tomorrow..
How is that?
Thanks for visiting my friends and thank you for your lovely comments and emails..
So appreciate them..
When a blogger gets comments then they think they had better do another posting..smile
So happy you liked Faye's pantry..
We will try to do another one when she prepares it for Spring..
We had to postpone our Keepers Meeting due to weather but will do it hopefully in 2 weeks..
