A lot of times the folks will even sing along. Songs from their childhood. And they know all the words.

A couple of times we have had "Double Feature" night. On those nights, we started at six instead of the usual seven o'clock. A lot of the folks here go to bed around nine, so the movie has to be over by then. Movie night is a lot of fun for everyone.
Let me know if an apartment becomes vacant. I LOVE '30s and '40s B&W movies. Anything with Bette Davies has me hooked.

I absolutely insist that no one give me anything towards my costs...only two have even suggested that "everyone donate 50 cents"...not doing that....I keep telling them that "I'm doing it for Elvis." All I need is the darned bunch of people complaining that they gave me money and so and so didn't, or how much one gave and the others didn't...it's awful....people talk and gossip so much. I DON'T WANT THIS!
Oh how I know this to be so true. I think every elderly building has their ring of gossipers. And those that grab anything that is FREE! When we have a party of any sort, there is always the group who stay to the very last minute so they can grab all the leftovers and take them back to their apartment. And if I have something that I no longer want, but it is too nice or still of use, all I have to do is put it in the community room and within the hour it will disappear. After all it was free.

Since the cupcakes go with Elvis movies, you might try making some various Elvis themed recipes. They are basically banana cupcakes with peanut butter icing. I've even seen some that have a drizzle of chocolate over the icing.

here are some interesting options:

Winning Cupcake The King of Cupcakes (Elvis) Recipe : Food Network

Elvis Cupcakes - Confessions of a Cookbook Queen

Elvis Cupcakes Recipe | Taste of Home

Elvis chocolate, peanut butter, & banana cupcakes | Ambitious Kitchen

Peanut Butter Banana Elvis Cupcakes ¬ę Peanut Butter Recipes

I've made this last one before and added a little chopped chocolate in with the crumb topping. Sticking a banana chip in as flourish would also be a nice touch.

recipe, cake

ISO Cupcake Help I am baking (hopefully) a recipe for applesauce muffins that I had cut out of our local newspaper years ago. I haven't made this in soooo long, and have only recently started baking again. I had afixed it to a loose leaf page in a notebook, but I hadn't realized that when I punched the holes in this page that it went through the list of ingredients. Now I don't know how much baking soda or salt this recipe calls for and I'm hoping someone can help me. I don't trust my own judgement here, so I'm going to list all the other ingredients so that someone can hopefully tell me the proper amount to use. 1 and 1/2 cups cake flour 1/2 tsp baking powder [COLOR=Red]???? tsp baking soda ???? tsp salt[/COLOR] 1/8 tsp nutmeg 7 tblsps margarine or butter 2/3 cup granulated sugar 1 egg 3/4 cup strained (canned) applesauce 1/2 tsp vanilla I've already started with the dry ingredients and I'm hoping that soon someone can give me the proper measurements for these two ingredients. Thank you for your help, Jovin 3 stars 1 reviews
