Mother’s Day is every day to me. My Mother was a registered nurse and a wonderful cook. Friends and family enjoyed her company. A smile and laughter were always with her as well as her funny jokes. Everyone enjoyed them too, almost as much as her cooking. Time passes, memories stay with us.
2 cups cake flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp soda
1 tsp vinegar
1/2 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups sugar
(The Egg And “You”…)
To test the age of an egg, place in deep pan of cold water. If it lies on its side, it is fresh. If it stands at an angle, it is probably 3-4 days old. If it stands on end upright, it is over 10 days old. If it floats to the top…get rid of it!
1 cup sour milk
2 squares bitter chocolate
