    I'm holding three at the moment. It was because I slept in today way too long. Stop yelling at me.

    So I volunteered to make a cake. This is what I think I am going to make

    Strawberry Swirl Cake

    1 package (2-layer size) white cake mix
    1 pkg. (4 serving size) Strawberry Flavor Gelatin
    2/3 cup Sour Cream
    2/3 cup powdered sugar
    1 (8 ounce) tub Whipped Topping, thawed
    1 1/2 cups sliced strawberries

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans; set aside. Prepare cake batter as directed on package. Pour half of the batter into medium bowl. Add dry gelatin mix; stir until well blended. Spoon half of the white batter and half of the pink batter, side-by-side, into each prepared pan. Swirl batters together using a teaspoon.

    Bake 30 min. Cool 30 min. in pans. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

    Mix sour cream and powdered sugar in medium bowl until well blended. Gently stir in whipped topping. Place one of the cake layers on serving plate; spread top with 1 cup of the whipped topping mixture. Top with 1 cup of the strawberries and remaining cake layer. Spread top and side of cake with remaining whipped topping mixture. Top with remaining 1/2 cup strawberries just before serving. Store any leftover cake in refrigerator.
    I made the cake on Saturday but didn't take them out of the pans. So on Sunday morning when I went to take them out of the pans. The cake stuck. I had a mess I couldn't fix. So I made more cakes Sunday morning. The 2nd set turned out wonderful. We all snacked on the first set of cakes for breakfast.


    Now I need to make a poke cake for Wednesday for a girl in the office. I will make this on Tuesday night.

    So here's the breakfast muffin recipe I concocted from Tightwad Gazette.

    1 cup of flour
    1 cup of oat bran
    2 tsps baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt


    3/4 cup of milk
    2 tbsp magarine, melted
    2 tbsp peanut butter

    1 egg

    1/2 cup of honey

    chocolate chips if desired.

    Dry ingredients mixed, then add everything else and mix. You'll need to play with the amount of oat bran to get the right consistency. My first attempt was a bit dry, but when I added less oat bran, it went better.

    Bake at 400degrees F for 20 minutes.

    I will make my jello poke cake tonight for the girl at work's birthday.

    I am using a yellow cake mix and not making it from scatch like I usually do. You really can't tell the difference when you pour jello over it anyway.

    Baking some 69 cent brownies again, YUM. I really like sales that make you feel guilt-free for a treat.

    This time making them in 9x13 maybe they will last longer if I cut them in smaller pieces, too. We devoured the first batch but then we hadn't had any in quite awhile before then.

    Car loan (ugh, again!)
    Husband's debt to work on, mine is gone except car loan. w00t!

    Yah, I suck at this money stuff, I know. That's why I'm here.
