My good friend, Mischief, hosted the book club I'm in this past week. She was kind enough to let me take her photograph and post it. Wouldn't you just love to have a name like Mischief, and isn't she beautiful?
I really admire her intelligence and sense of humor. AND, here's a recipe that she made for our book club. I don't think she'll mind that I post this, but I have to tell you, it was incredibly delicious!
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp soft butter
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup milk
2 cups flour
3 tsp baking powder
Add 2 cups raw cranberries, whole
Bake in greased 8X10 pan at 350 degrees for 35 minutes. Serve warm.
Mix and let come to a boil:
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup cream
Pour hot sauce over warm cake. Cake can be made ahead and reheated.
And, many of you did figure out my husband's Christmas ornament. It is the leg lamp from the very funny Christmas Story movie. We love watching this movie during the holiday season, but I told my husband that I worry about how the dad's are portrayed in some of the movies these days. I mean, think about it: there's the dad in National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Homer Simpson, the dad in Christmas Story. . . not the most competent, shining examples of brilliance. . . but they do have a lot of heart.
