Happy New Years Eve
I woke up laughing this morning thinking again
about a story I told my neighbor last night when
we ran into them at the grocery store. Hadn't
thought of this in years and years. Anyway,
thought it might give someone out there a good
laugh, so thought I would share it.
When our first Christmas together rolled around
we had only been married not quite 2 months,
and being new to the Suzie homemaker thing,
I decided to make my new hubbies favorite
cake, "A Red Velvet Cake", and I found these
aluminum pans that were Christmas tree shaped,
so decided to make it "A Green Velvet Cake",
so since Red Velvet cake uses 2 bottles of
Red food coloring, I used 2 bottles of green
food coloring for my tree shaped extravaganza.
I was so pleased that it turned out so well
after I frosted it with cream cheese frosting
with black walnuts. Since we were going
to my Dad and Step-moms for Christmas
dinner, as well as my other step siblings,
we were of course, taking the cake with us.
After dinner, it was time for dessert and
I just knew my Dad would be so proud of
my cake (Being a chef and restaruant
owner). Anyway, we were all sitting at
the table eating my cake and everyone
said how good it was, and I was feeling so
great that it came so well, then as we sat
talking and eating our cake, we all began
to notice each others lips..... they were
turning green, and it got worse with each
bite, now our lips, teeth and tongue were all
green.......and we were all dying laughing
and running to find a mirror to see what
we looked like, it was too funny......
and as it turned out it actually affected
everyone's whole entire digestive system
in a very green way and everything was
coming out green, for a few days, if you
get my drift.
So needless to say, Green Velvet Cake was
never ever on my menu again! lol
But it sure made for a good story and I
sure got a lot of laughs and ribbing about
it for sure..........
Very thankful we didn't have cell phone
cameras and face book back then, cause
my family would have made sure
to post it. lol
Anyway, that's my story and I am
sticking to it........
Hugs and New Years Eve Blessings,
