Monday Ramblings

This is going to be a wonderful day. Mr. C is cooking a Thanksgiving supper for us but especially for his daughter Alisha.  This man is very kind and thoughtful. He tries very hard to do family traditions with her. I remember how hard it was on my brother and I when we were younger and having to be pulled in a million directions.  Mr. C is making sure that his children have memories. I am so blessed to have such a wonderful man in my life. I might better add that he is a awesome cook I do believe he is a better cook than I am. He wanted to make stuffing like his grandma and my grandma made and it turned out super good.  He heated up a spiral ham, green beans and corn, made garlic mashed potatoes and ham gravy, we had cranberry sauce and I made a cherry cake and also deviled eggs.  He cooked all day it seemed and the house was filled with a wonderful aroma.

                                   Heavenly Cherry Cake

1 box yellow or chocolate cake mix with pudding (Duncan Hines)
1 pkg instant vanilla pudding mix
1 container Cool Whip
1 can cherry pie filling

        Bake cake according to directions. Cool. Mix pudding mix with 1/2 the milk called for. Chill. Pour pie filling over cooked cake evenly.  Mix pudding and Cool Whip gently and spread over pie filling.  Chill and Serve.

This is a very yummy cake and so simple to make. Next time I make it I will take a photo of it and post. I so enjoy going thru old recipe books and trying recipes out.  That is how I have found several of our favorite recipes thru the years.

Can you believe it is almost December? I am so not ready for Christmas!  I need to get my Christmas Dcorations out and get them up.  I do believe that I will do that Monday coming up.  I won't have much time till Christmas because I am going to be at the flower shop nearly every day.  Not that I mind that means more Christmas presents for the family.
