We had a nice (but quick) birthday for him Wednesday night. We had Luke, Jake, and Dad and Mom over for supper and cake.
I was going to make scalloped poatoes and ham...until I found out it took 3 hours (and it was 5 o'clock already). Ha! So, we ended up with Turkey Pot Pie/ Shepherd's Pie instead. And the cake. Don't forget the cake. I made chocolate cake, and a new frosting I hadn't tried yet. The frosting was really good. So good I will share the recipe with you (aren't you happy!).
If you are health conscious...please close your eyes and ignore the following... *ahem*
Creamy White Frosting (from Betty Crocker)
- 1 cup shortening
- 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon lemon, orange, or almond extract (Almond is what Made the Frosting!)
- 4 1/2 cup sifted powdered sugar (about 1 pound)
- 3 to 4 Tablespoons milk
