A Simple Frosting Tip

My friend Marie, shared this frosting tip with me. Enjoy!
Expanding Frosting!

When you buy a container of cake frosting from the store, whip it with your mixer for a few minutes. You can double it in size. You get to frost more cake/cupcakes with the same amount. You also eat less sugar and calories per serving.

Headed To Feed The Horses With My Grandkids

Today was a fun day. Having two of my grandkids over was such a treat. We learned all about Healthy Eating Habits… For Horses of Course!

These little ones… Norah and Abram stayed with me for a few hours while their mom, Martha took Lu Lu to an appointment. We decided we would take a little stroll around the block to visit and feed the horses.

I’m fortunate to live near a horse pasture and barn…for that country life feeling… and still be close enough to Costco (two blocks away…) for the convenience of the city. Plus…I live on a quiet cul-de-sac. What a location!

While I packed my camera along.. Norah pack the horse treats… apples and carrots. (We did snitch a few of the apple treats for ourselves along the way.) She wasted no time in getting to know three new horse friends. She named her favorite horse “Princess.” Abram was a little reluctant at first…but it wasn’t long before he got the hang of things.

“Come on…eat your carrots… you’ll see better.”

“See… it does taste good..doesn’t it?

“I don’t know if I trust you. I think I’d rather play with the tackle.”

“Good bye Princess…. I love you.”

“Hey Nana… Princess said, “Thank You!”

No kidding… as soon as we left… that darn horse stuck her head out the window and whinnied loudly!

Norah was so thrilled.
