It's been a month....or six!

Wow, it has been a long time since I've been here. Life gets in the way sometimes and I can't come on here as often as I want.

The teenager-type will be going off to college sooner than I thought and I've been pondering the catering business idea that a few people have suggested. I guess I could get into making the Miracle cake and the chicken enchiladas to start off. I am not sure I want to take on more than I can chew at this time (no pun intended). I could also make Rico's rum cake; now that would travel really well.

The enchiladas are hard work though. Oh, I've prayed on the Miracle cake and I will be giving the church a nice donation for every cake that I sell. Our church needs a miracle. So many people lost their jobs and our pastor mentioned that our light bill for last month was $2500.00!! Of course it is summer in Texas. I've been praying about it and I feel I've been led to do this to help others.

My Miracle cake is just a simple pineapple cake with an amazing pudding topping that people just love. Everybody in my family requests this cake for their birthdays, anniversaries or other special occasions. I really enjoy making them too.

People in other parts of the country have asked if I will ship this cake but I'm not sure it will ship well with the topping being pudding and it must be kept cold. Also, there are pineapple slices on top so I don't think it would be a good idea to ship, who knows, maybe someone with more cake-baking/shipping experience than myself can enlighten me.

For the past several days I've been getting up at 5 am for no apparent reason. I've been going on 5 hours sleep at most. I've not been wasting that time though. I've been praying every day about everything and everybody. God knows why.

You guys all have a blessed day. I know I will.
