I never left the house yesterday.
The weather was terrible yesterday morning and because I’d had a very stressful week, we didn’t push it to get to church. We watched Andy Stanley and as usual, we were blessed by his message. I particularly like this series.
My granddaughter came over in the afternoon and we baked a cake. I’ve made the typical poke cake made with jello but never one like this.
This was a Boston Creme Pie Poke Cake. I meant to take pictures of each step but it wasn’t all that exciting and I don’t think we always need pictures, do we? (Click on the link for the recipe. The pictures are from her blog as well.)
The cake was too rich for me. We used a canned frosting and I hate canned frosting. I’ve made Boston Cream Pie fro scratch and I like it much better. I think this recipe would have also been better with a homemade frosting.
I think poke cakes are fun. Have you ever made one? And, if so, what is your favorite?
My granddaughter left after a few hours and I enjoyed a relaxing evening.
There’s something special about having a day when you can just sit back and relax. It’s been the least stressful day for me in a week. That’s why this post is on the “light” side. I knew I needed to give my mind a rest as well.
This is a good article you might want to check out.
“Thank you,God, for understanding my need to not think, to not figure anything out, to not have to go anywhere. I’ve felt your arms around me all day, soothing me and equipping me for the upcoming week. Thank you for meeting my needs always and all ways.”
I hope your week-end was great.
God bless and have a good day.
