Monday, Monday....

Just a couple of things before I play catch up today.

I had to take a cake to church yesterday. I didn't feel like making one from scratch, so I, as my Grandma would say, "doctored up" a box mix.

I bought a white cake mix, used equal amount of butter for the oil recommended (yep, full-on butter, the real deal), and pureed strawberries for 1/2 the water amount.

Then for the powdered sugar/butter cream icing, that I usually make out powdered sugar, butter, a little cream and vanilla, I added a cup of marshmallow cream and 3/4 cup Cool Whip.

I spread that on the cake, and as I served it I covered it with more pureed strawberries.  People loved it!
For me, it was ridiculously easy.

I saw this online and thought it truly was a clever idea.  I have a couple of watches that have been in the family for generations, not knowing what to do with them.  I checked out many sources and they don't even make these watches anymore so no parts are available. Now I can wear them with their pretty casings.
