“Just Roll with It” Serving up Recipes and Humor

Hello everyone! Hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Always tell your loved ones how much you love them and never take them for granted.

I have been so busy this week. I have been gone every night doing something. I still had time to make dessert for our church’s Valentine party. Last night, I made banana bread and brownies.

Do y’all remember when we were kids and always trying to pull a fast one over on our parents? Well, I was a pro at it, or so I thought. My mom always knew. I always wondered how she knew. When I became a parent I figured it all out. Moms have special powers and they are better than a bloodhound about sniffing out things their children do. Shannon would get so mad because I usually knew what she had done before she got home.

Back in the late 1970s, once again, Lisa Smith Favela and I were up to something. Her parents were going to take the kids to the lake and we begged to stay home, and they let us. As soon as they got out of sight, we found the keys to the Impala and drove all over Mansfield. We drove down every street, we thought we were something. Neither one of us had a license. We eased the big four-door car into the driveway right before they got home. We were so proud of ourselves, we had pulled a fast one on the folks. They pull in the driveway and we are all outside, and we are in the clear. We were smiling on the inside. Then, all of a sudden, Jackson Smith leans on the hood of the car and it was still warm from us roaming the town. We were busted. He said, “who’s been driving this car?!” We had to fess up, we were caught. We got in trouble, and you would think this would have stopped us from pulling any more stunts. Of course, it didn’t. Oh, the good old days, driving that car was fun, it was worth getting in trouble. Can I say that I could talk Lisa into pretty much anything? I was the instigator. I can just imagine the shock on your faces.

This week’s recipe is another quick cake recipe. It comes from my friend, Ronna Watts. She is one of the best cooks I know. She can tackle anything and make a meal out of the leftovers and just about anything.
Now don’t think this won’t work because it will and I made it with blueberry and it was good. I am going to try it with cherry next time.

1 dry angel food cake mix
1 regular size can of blueberry pie filling (you can use any flavor you like)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees, mix the dry angel food cake mix (do not add the water) and the pie filling till it’s mixed together good. You do not have to grease the pan. Pour the batter into a 9×13 cake pan and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, depending on your oven. One of my ovens gets hotter than the other. It will puff up while cooking. Let cool, you can top with cool whip or icing of your choice. I just put butter on mine and ate it like a blueberry muffin. Enjoy!
