Ok, today is my B-day. I'm a whopping 32 years old. Yee. Haa.

Well, my DW didn't think to go get a cheapie cake mix to make a cake for me. She doesn't know what I like. I told her, "Have you ever see me turn my nose up at ANY kind of cake?" She actually did have an answer, "Strawberry" (she has an addiction to anything, and I mean, ANYTHING, strawberry, jam, jelly, syrup, muffins, cake, frosting, Kool-aid, soda, etc.)

I looked at her and said I'd even eat a Strawberry cake. But, it's no big deal, as I prefer "from scratch" anyways, and I have a couple hundred different cake recipes on my computer.

Earlier, I started looking, and found a nice-sounding Banana Oatmeal crunch-type cake. It's small, only yielding a 8" square cake pan, but, I have everything (so I thought), and the size would be perfect for my (Hopeful!) cookbook.

A little while ago, I got ready to make it, and lo and behold, WE'RE OUT OF EGGS! They used all the eggs for Easter, and didn't go get any more. I've got all the kids here, and she's got the car seats, so I can't even take them to the store to go buy a dozen really quick.


Peace, Love, and Vegetable Rights!

Poor Allen! {{{hug}}}

I made the cake below for a coworker of my hubby's a couple weeks ago. How about I go home and make one for you, too (at least in spirit)?

Happy Birthday..maybe she will bring one home to you.
I haven't had a B.D. cake since my mother brought one to the skating rink for me to share with all and I was 16 years old. Take that from 71...( 55 years)
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!
