Dude & Bruiser ~ Lost In The 50's ~ Omaha Pineapple Upside-Down Cake ~ Crock Pot Buffalo Ranch Dip ~ Sue's Bavarian Cream Pie

Good 38º dark cloudy gloomy morning.
Yesterday the sun came out and it was beautiful for a while. Heated to 61º.

My guy was on the porch enjoying the sunshine...

And the Bruise was napping on top of my printer.... (yes, that's why the towel is there!)

Rain started about 3pm but we only got 2/10". Today is another "chance" of rain.

This was shared by pals Nancy (Kujala) and Carol (Nasca) ..Lost In The 50's Tonight ... omgosh, so many memories!!!! (you young folks will NOT understand)

Yesterday I worked on photos again for calendars. Dinner again was reruns. But, breakfast was OMGOOOD! I cooked an egg in the micro (butter, little salt, cheese, pierce yoke, in porcelain dish with saucer on top 50 seconds on high) and an Omaha Steaks Pineapple Upside-Down Cake! (

No thawing, microwave 55 seconds. GADZ I could eat one of those for every meal!!!

Wow, only 70 days left until Super Bowl Sunday!!! February 5, 2017. GO PATRIOTS!!!

Bavarian Cream Pie Day

I used to make a Bavarian Cream Pie years ago just using Jell-O and Cool Whip...

1 3oz pkg Jell-O ... any flavor

1/4 cup sugar

1½ cups thawed Cool Whip

Make Jell-O per directions adding sugar..1 cup boiling water, 1 cup cold water. Chill until slightly thick, blend in Cool Whip, pour into cracker or Oreo crumb crust and chill. Use strawberry Jell-O and add sliced strawberries when you blend in the Cool Whip. Make it with orange Jell-O and add mandarin orange pieces.

I so remember all those old things. At Parnell we had sidewalks going around the entire school. So we would put on our saddle shoes, tighten up the roller skates and off we would go. :)

Also every day at 5:00 Miss Yoder would let us sit in the living room of the Big House and watch the Mickey Mouse Club. Loved it.

You are always finding good stuff on Omaha Steaks that I didn't see. That little cake looks yummy.

The pineapple upside down cakes look devilish good. I have peaches- maybe I could do something similar using cupcake tins for individual servings.

Thank you for the rain. We got a couple good soakings out of it. If you have any more to spare, my Oklahoma friends would appreciate some sent their way.
