back to ikea i go and randomness


Who would have thunk it. IKEA HAS FABRIC! *flail* ohhh this is bad. But that is not why I have to go back to Ikea...
Looks like Aine didn't like her new bed. Back to Ikea i go. Also, for some reason the top part is not "attaching" hence... not good for a bouncing puggy. I guess she will have to get used to the carpet or floor. oh wait. I guess my lap is going to do. *sigh*

How does one figure out what ATC cards to do for New Moon? Via Velvet MOON! LOL.


Oh and people have been asking me two things ---

how to make pumpkin bread....
2/3 cup soft margarine
2 2/3 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 can pumpkin
2/3 cup of water
3 1/3 cups of flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of ground cloves

Preheat oven 350 degrees
Butter the bottom of two bread loaf tins
Mix shorting and sugar good
Add eggs, pumpkin and water, flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder, cinnamon and cloves are slowly added to pumpkin

Divide between two tins, bake for 65-70 minutes.

Let sit for 10 minutes - it is always the best the next day!

and how to make nummy frosting
2 tablespoons of butter - creamed
1 cup to 2 cups confectioners sugar.... note! this is NOT powdered sugar - that is a totally different type of sugar. Make sure you find "confectioners" sugar.
teaspoon of vanila
some salt
some milk
hersery's powdered chocolate

Mix the butter and the sugar together, if it gets to think put some milk in it. Than mix everything else... don't eat it all! :) Remember two things - you can always add more milk to the mix and more sugar. Remember to taste because you might have to add more salt.
Okay I need to get back to it... ATC's and many other fun stuff to do...HUGS! Nan and Aine who has taken up residence on a nearby chair. :)
