Family Stuff

Eleven years ago today, my baby sister was married. Since I chose to nap this afternoon instead of calling her, I decided to have a party even though she's three time zones away and in a completely different country! It's the thought that counts, right? So Wendy, if you're reading this, I know you and Chris went out to dinner, or are about to, anyway...it's almost 6 where you are...I fixed Chicken with Rosemary sauce, rice with mushrooms, mixed veggies, and made a Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing. We'll be eating it later with ice cream:) Happy Anniversary!

On a down note, received word that my honorary aunt was taken to the hospital the other day with congestive heart failure. My daughter called a few minutes ago; she took a turn for the worse and though she's now no longer in critical care, the family has been called in. As soon as my daughter comes home, D and I will be going to the hospital to offer our support to our friends and possibly saying goodbye to a dear lady who enjoyed herself thoroughly at our house New Year's Day.

In other family news, my mom called. Today is the first day she's not sore from coughing and is finally feeling like her old self again! Maybe this round of illness is finally over? And just in time for back to school on Monday:)

Good news on Kelly's Place http://www.kkirch.blogspot.com/ ! She finally has release dates on her books! And Anny's launching a new feature on hers, the Best Of. Go to http://www.annycook.blogspot.com/ and check it out!

What is red velvet cake???

Molly Daniels said...

Red Velvet cake is basically a chocolate cake with red food coloring...or so I learned from Paula Deen over the holidays! Otherwise, go to the cake mix aisle and buy the box mix (I use Dunkan Hines) and it's delicious:)
