With my latte’ in hand a morning ritual began. A mutual coffee lover and I were talking yesterday and as usual the conversation touched on the subject of coffee! Her husband had read that drinking this “Heavenly Brew will increase your life. “Drink more…Live longer!”. We were thrilled…but then the conversation turned to what things will still occur. It’s Gonna Happen Folks…No Matter How Much Coffee You Drink!
Things That Will Always Happen:
The sun will rise!
A cup to wake up with…maybe two!
We all need money!
Money and Coffee…a cup of coffee will always be present!
We all have bills!
Must have coffee!
Bills have to be paid!
Stressed? Have another cup!
There will always be people who annoy you!
A simple escape…coffee break!
Hoping this cup of coffee will fool my stomach into thinking I am eating!
Another coffee break!
Paying for gas!
We will always be aging!
At least I am old enough to drink coffee!
Aches and pains!
A cup of coffee and two Tylenol…just what the doctor ordered!
Fat-free creamer…Fat-free flavoring
Lines at the grocery store!
NOOOO! My cup is in the car!
I know there are more constants…but coffee will be with them as well! We can’t drink away our problems. We will always have situations that influence the way we live and we will always adapt. The fact is we have grown up knowing what lies ahead as we age…what responsibilities bring with them…how money evaporates, like a ghostly vapor, before putting it in the bank. We continue our journey and typically have a cup within reach.
What is a constant in your life? How does coffee( ok…I will accept tea!) help you deal with these daily situations? You know it as well as I do! Life…It’s Gonna Happen Folks…No Matter How Much Coffee You Drink!
Have a great day…and enjoy your coffee!
Sorry for the delay…I decided to enjoy my Mother’s Day with my family.
I had written earlier about the Pampered Chef desserts and wanted to give them to you. I hope you want to try these Just Desserts!
First up we have a Mock Lemon Meringue Cake:
Next was the Mini Chocolate Tiramisu Cakes:
Don’t they look scrumptious?
I was also asked about my recipe for my Dump Cake?..Ask and ye shall receive! I made two Saturday night and they turned out wonderful. We ate one yesterday…”My hubby wants another one soon!”
The hardest part of this recipe is the opening of the cans!
For these two pans I used …
2 cans of crushed pineapple…drained
2 cans of cherry pie filling
1 yellow cake mix…divided between the two pans
1 cup of butter…1 stick for each pan
Dump one can of crushed pineapple in greased dish or pan
Dump one can of Cherry Filling on top of pineapple
Spread cake mix on top of fruit
Slice the butter on top of dry cake mix
Bake at 350 until done…the trick to the cake being done is the outside edges will brown…it will be a cobbler like texture. “Make sure you spread the cake mix out evenly to prevent a gooey clump!”
Serve warm…and you can put a whipped topping or ice cream with it!
I used light cherry pie filling and a sugar free cake mix…”You know…dieting! Let me know what you think of these recipes!
My family loves desserts and variety is the spice of life…well that’s what they say. I hope you like these recipes after all they are Just Desserts!
Have a great day!
