I love this picture!!!!! I had to go into the big walk-in refrigerator at work. I forgot to bring something to"gather" my eggs in.........so I brought my apron up and put them in it. Made me feel like I was on the farm........Heehee wonderful feeling! The Lord is so good to me.......in the simple things.
Hello sweet ladies,
Kansas had some real bad weather today. We missed it, but others didn't. Tornados in areas south of our farm close to Wichita, haven't heard of any injuries so far. Hope all are okay. Praying.
Today at work I made an Orange Cake. It turned out soooo good! I used this cake recipe today called Simple White Cake from All Recipes. (We use it alot) Click on name. It is the most moist cake we have ever made. So many times we don't like white cake recipes, because they are always so dry. Not this one! It is so easy to make. Grate the peel on one orange and put it into the cake batter before baking. For the frosting make this easy frosting.
Orange Cream Cheese Frosting
1/2 cup butter
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese room temp.
4 Tblsp. fresh squeezed orange juice
2 Tblsp. orange zest
Cream butter and cream cheese together using an electric mixer in bowl
until light and fluffy. Add orange juice and continue beating adding
confectioner's sugar into the cream mixture a little at a time.
Frost the cake when it has cooled.
For one of the breakfast breads I made this nummy Cranberry Bread. I used chopped pumpkin seeds for the nuts. You can't believe how good they were with the cranberries. Everyone liked it. That means is was good!!!!!!!
I am sorry.......I forgot to take a picture of the Orange Cake today. The day seemed to go by so fast and...........I was out of there like a rocket!!!!!!! Oh how I love our farm!
Our family is learning appreciation. When we are all home together we are enjoying each other.......not that we didn't before its just now our time together at home is so precious!...... The job is also showing us His provisions for our family. It has been very difficult in the last years and having a pay check is so very nice. We are having to be very careful.........but it is a blessing. There is a lady at work that has 4 children that she provides for.......... by herself. My heart aches for her. I so hope that we can adopt them for CHRISTmas. Asking the Lord what He wants us to do. I think it will be fun. Today I asked her............ if they would like eggs...........she said yes.............I want her to know Jesus..........that He loves her. Pray for us as we get direction from the Lord as to what He wants us to do. It will be a fun adventure for sure with Him at the lead? How could it not be?
I am so thankful for my honey who works so hard and provides for our family. He is so tired by the end of the day. Please pray for him. He still works another 5 to 6 hours when he gets home. Lots to do. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!
