I woke up to the two females fighting in our bedroom about 4 this morning. Just as I was going to go back to bed the phone rang. Delayed opening for school. An hour later it rang again - no school. Both teens are still sleeping and I've been up almost 6 hours already. Laundry's done, coffee cake and muffins are made.
The reason we had no school is this : Lots and Lots of ice
I love the look over iced over plants and objects. But's really slippery out there. Poor Cliff is sleeping in a chair with towels and a quilt. See a pattern here with the cats and quilts. Even the outside stray has a quilt.
Moose is Moose and could care less that there's almost 1/2" of ice outside. Why worry when you're INSIDE with my quilt!
This our house's favorite coffee cake recipe. Being there was no school today for the teens I made them breakfast :)
NY TIMES COFFEE CAKE :
2 c flour
3/4 c sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 c milk
1 TBS vanilla
mix all dry ingredients together. I give it a good stir with a wisk.
Combine all wet ingredients in another bowl and add to dry
ingredients stirring until just combined. Batter will be thin and
pour into a greased 13x9 inch baking pan.
2 1/4 sticks of butter ( I only use 2 - easier to remember)
3/4 c packed brown sugar
1/2c white sugar
3 c flour
Mix above to make BIG crumbs patting into cake batter
Bake at 375* for 40-45 minutes
powdered sugar for dusting cooled cake
I also add whatever else I like anywhere from 3/4c to 1c
of diced apples, berries, mini chocolate chips.
Almost done with the log cabin blocks. Another possible layout.
Please no one comment that they look like swatikas- these layouts have been around way longer than Hilter was in power. Think pinwheels- think something nice.
