red velvet

Years ago my mother in law made me a red velvet cake. I had never had one before. I never even heard of them. I mentioned this cake to my mom and she said that she had not had one in many years. Hmmm. I have found the boxed version of this cake and I have made it a few times, but for me a red velvet cake is a special treat. A few weekends ago when we were at Chili's I saw that they had a red velvet cake. So I ordered it. It cam in a shot glass. A shot glass! That is not even worth getting the milk out for. So last night one of the marines said "Hey mom I got you something." I look in the box and there it was, a red velvet cake. I just had a slice of it and the memories started flooding back.
Not much happened at the doctors yesterday. I have to go in for another ultrasound and then the doctors will compare the two, and we will go from there. This all sounds so easy. Just get the surgery, but it is not that easy for us. Rusty does not want me to have the surgery because his mother died on the table during a routine surgery. Then there is the question of do I trust the doctors... no. Then I have to make sure to tell the girls to not tell my mother until after the fact. My mother wants to come out, but that would mean that she would be bringing hell child and none of us want that. Then there is the question, if they are not getting bigger and they are not bothering me do I roll the dice and hope it stays that way? So many questions, and only Rusty and I can answer them.
Tomorrow I am heading out to the desert with Rusty. He has to go out to another base to deliver some stuff and he asked me to go with him. I love spending time with Rusty.
Today was much the same. I got some cleaning done. I laid out in the sun for a while, and my last load of laundry is in the dryer right now. I also found out that Nikki has to have all four wisdom teeth cut out next month. Oh what a joy that will be.
My ex has stopped paying his child support again, so now I am going to have to really look at our budget and see if we can afford a nice night out. I wish that man would just fall off the planet.
I have been on facebook for a few weeks now. I have hooked up with some old friends, and I have ignored some people. Some people are just meant to be ignored.
I think I am going to get sit in the sun and read a book. Tomorrow is flash me Friday so I am going to be looking for truckers.
Life is good.

My daughters liked to make red velvet cake when they were still at home. I haven't had one in a long time but I remember how good they are.

My brother-in-law used to make Red Velvet Cake on special occasions but now that my sister has severe diabetes that treat is out, but that is the first time I ever ran into it, and I thought I had seen every cake a good Mormon country cook could make. They re beautiful looking cakes and very rich. But I never made one. I am glad you got out for outing. I feel better for it, too, as you describe it here. As for as the nose piercing well your kids will push you until you break if they can, I know that But some battles you have to win to keep your sanity. Gerry

I bought a bakery-made red velvet cake recently, and Eler Beth loved it so much that she told that when she gets married THAT'S the kind of cake she wants for a wedding cake. I'm glad she's making her plans early.
