Jason and I went on a date to President Eisenhower’s House, it was a really nice time to see where he spent his last years. The bottom photo is a golf cart of sorts he’d use all around his farm and Gettysburg. Mamie was also known for clipping coupons while shopping at the local grocer, I think that’s pretty neat.
I used yellow and red onion skins to color some white and brown eggs. I colored four white eggs with yellow skins, they turned an orangey brown. Meanwhile I put in a few brown and white into the red skin mixture. My white eggs turned brown and my brown eggs turned darker brown. ;) I would like to try with purple cabbage, it is supposed to turn your eggs green and blue! (The egg on the top, next the two really dark ones is one, I dyed in the yellow skins.)
Might I just begin with saying, my husband LOVES LEMON CAKE. I was really excited to make this for him and to see what he thought. We gave the first piece a try, it naturally has a light lemon flavor but I decided to kick the flavor up a bit by adding a lemon icing over the top of each piece. YUM. This would be nice to serve at tea with your friends.
This was a most interesting dish. The sweet and savory combination was just balanced enough. I didn’t wait for it to cool completely, I did wait about an hour when everything else was ready to eat. My first bite I was skeptical, but as I kept eating I really enjoyed it. I would have never come up with this combination on my own! Just another reason I’m glad I signed up for this group!
This was a very simple, easy recipe. My eldest made it, with just a little assistance. Very nice, quick break used as a side to our Easter lunch. I am so enjoying making the recipes for our Baking with Juila group.
