What is Owen barfing at?

"What is Owen barfing at?", Yelling Girl asks
"barking at?" I say
"Ya barfing at!"

Well he was barking at himself in the mirror...or maybe he was barfing at himself who knows what his self perception is.

I bit the bullet this morning and made a cake..a real cake not a no bake cake, a bake in the oven make your own icing cake! I had to... I bought a cook book at the school book fair and it had a recipe for a Root Beer is the recipe...


1 package 2 layer size yellow cake mix
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
Root Beer
1 recipe Root Beer Icing

- grease 9x13 inch baking pan, set aside, preheat oven to 350 degrees
-prepare cake according to boxed instructions, except substitute liquid for Root Beer, and add vanilla.
-spread batter evenly in pan
-bake according to boxed instructions
-cool on wire rack, flip and cool on other side.
-cut in half length or width wise, trim sides and top until flat and even.
-spread a little icing on first half, cover with second half and ice the whole cake together.

In a medium bowl beat 1/3 cup butter with beater on high speed until smooth. Add 1 cup icing sugar, beat well. Add in 1 tsp vanilla, and 3 tbsp root beer, beat again until well mixed, gradually add in 2 more cups of icing sugar mix until smooth add in more root beer or icing sugar if you need to make it more spreadable.

So now that I have wasted the morning making a cake, I really need to get to work on the craft fair items...I blistered my thumb on Friday...thank you glue gun!!! It is better now, sigh...ok get a move on, here I go...I'm going now...this is me going...bye!...
