I'll Wear Jammies Anywhere...

I made Mary Frans cake (see yesterdays post for the link) and it is scrumptious. Only problem is that it fell. I've never baked an angel food cake before and I'm not sure what I did wrong. I didn't have a tube pan and had already decided to make it in loaf pans so I could freeze two of them for later. I followed the directions for loaf pans and everything. I had gotten a call earlier reminding me that it was a neighbors birthday and decided to take him one. Ugly as it was he really liked it. He knows that I can cook so he was a little surprised that my baking left a lot to be desired. I drizzled chocolate glaze on top of it to make it a "chocolate covered cherry" angel food cake. Didn't do that with the ones I kept for myself. Although I really wanted to. Wonder how it would be with chocolate chips inside? Hmmmm. No I don't think I'll do that either cause I would probably eat a whole loaf in one setting.

The friend that I lost a couple of weeks ago called me yesterday. I must have been on line because she left a message on voice mail. She apologized for what she had said to me but said she wasn't up to talking about it yet and she still sounded angry as all get out. So I'm not accepting that as an apology. It's going to take a whole lot more than that. And it's going to take a lot of time for the wounds to heal.

When I took the cake to the neighbor, I rode my 4-wheeler down there. It was a little chilly and I dressed accordingly. I stayed for an hour and a half and when I went out to come back home it had rained. Well, as you know 4-wheelers don't have tops to them so I had a very soggy butt when I got home. And in my new size medium jammie bottoms no less.

Yes, I wore my jammie bottoms to the neighbors house. You see this is the man that one of my daughters called to come and help me get out of bed when I had a cyst on my spinal column and woke up one morning and couldn't get out of bed on my own. Don't know what possessed me to call my daughter who then lived 2 1/2 hours away, but I guess I just wasn't thinking. But she had me hang up and called him to help me. I have to say that now I have no modesty at all around this man. He saw it all. I did have on a t-shirt and under pants but with all the pushing and pulling he had to do with me he definitely saw it all. And to beat it all I had to have him get a towel to put under me because I had to tinkle so bad I was afraid I'd soak the mattress before he got me up. He is one person I really call a friend.

Hope all of you have a great weekend.

Wow, now that is a friend indeed. The not so perfect cakes are always the best. I've been out of pocket for the last few days and will be for a while but not forever. Have a great weekend.
