Hope Your Evening Was Nice........Ours Was!

Hello......Sweet Ladies,

When we got home the other night this beautiful pie was awaiting us............doesn't it just look like a lot of Love went into it? It did........after a long day at the was so nice to be pampered with a real HOMEmade pie. It was apple. Num! It was a recipe used from Paula Deen's Recipe. It was called Mom's Apple Pie. Thought you might like to have the recipe. Tressa said it was real easy. Love the little leaves on the top. At work so far we have made 9 pies this week for work. I will be making 5 more for tomorrow and then 24 that they will need for Sunday Brunch. I am so thankful that they let me use premade pie crusts. I would be a mess if they made me make them by scratch! Heehee.

At the college kitchen we also make this cake. We call it the Carmel Cake. We have made it 2 times so far and the kids love it! We use this White Cake Recipe. It is so wonderful.....super easy and very moist!!!! The best white cake recipe......... we have every eaten! The frosting is from Martha Stewart's called Caramel Frosting. Use just the Caramel Sauce on this site. Very easy ladies! If we can make can make it. Just drizzle the sauce over the cake before you serve it. Enjoy!

This morning we left the house very early.......still dark outside. THe baby ducks were outside the door.......they started to talk to me.......refreshing way to start my day! The Mr. Turkey started to gobble at me.........again.....sweetness to my ears. I know that may sound funny but this Farm Girl loves it! We were driving down the road and Tress said..........."look at the moon" was gorgeous....and huge right in front of us..........a touch from the Father..........reminding us that He is there holding the moon in place. Right then...... with the moon looking at us........ this song came on the radio. I just lifted my heart to my God. He is so faithful ladies!!!!!! Hope you like this song. I have always liked it a lot! Use it as a prayer to God to touch our world full of people who need Jesus!

I got to work on the little nesters for Little Miss Fluff and Mrs. Puddle Duck. Filled them with nice straw for them to lay their eggs. Mrs. Puddle Duck is still having problems limping. Makes me sad.......but I am so grateful that she is alive. She is laying eggs. Isn't that precious? Need to get that incubator this weekend. MR. PHIL!!!!!!!! It is payday. Can't think of a better present to by myself. SMILE!

Hugs sweet ladies! You really are very precious!

Two more days. Can't wait for the weekend!

  7. I love apple pie and that is the most beautiful one I've seen. It is ozzing with love!

    I, too, enjoy hearing the animals in the morning. Whether a calf calling mom or roosters telling us that the sun is rising, it is music to my ears. It just says HOME.

    Enjoy your's almost Friday.

  8. The pie and cake look doubble good.

    I love the Jared Anderson song...such truth.

    God bless your day, too.


  9. Dear Linda..
    I came back to hear the song..and saw that my first comment didn't make it..something I did I am sure...I believe I said that I was in agreement with my Dear Friend Kathy...and that the Pie was beautiful..I am stuggling to get my Pie Crust recipe taste okay..I guess but I just can't seem to get it looking Pretty..and who doens't love a Pretty Pie...
    May your last day of work go by quickly and your weekend Slow and Sweet..
    Be Blessed Linda
    In Christ
