An impromptu birthday gathering...

The hub's 34th birthday is Monday. And what was going to be me cooking a fun dinner for him tonight, somehow turned into me cooking for 15 people. We had a date at Costco last night. Got a bunch of stuff for tonight and had our $3.00 hot-dog-and-coke dinner (can't beat that!). It was a crazy night in Buford!

I'm making my list for Publix right now and I'm about to run out the door. I'm also baking him a cake today. That should be interesting. I consider myself pretty crafty, but cake decorating is NOT one of my talents. So I imagine it's gonna look real nice. I was telling bestest all about my cake plans and she was like oh, just do something from a box - those are actually good. And I was like, um... what made you think I was considering anything else? Bake it from scratch? Puhleeez... I always knew boxes would be involved. Hehehehe! I *wish* I had bestest's baking skills.

Alright, I've got a to-do list a mile long. Better run!

Add a little extra vanilla and butter flavoring to any box cake and people rave. You can pick up butter flavoring at Micheal's, its by Wilton. I add it to all my baked goods, it adds richness without altering the recipe.

Hope the get together was great.
Isn't that the best deal at Costco. The hotdog and pop for that price. Hubby and I usually try to go around lunch on the weekend and there you go --can't beat it.

How did the cake turn out? That's the most important thing you know, the sweets!

Hope the party goes really well. It is amazing how tasty a cheap hot dog and coke can be! - we love the ikea ones:)
