Disney at the Holiday

UGH SO WE LIVE RIGHT BY DISNEYLAND

AND WE HAVE A GD PASS 

SO WE ARE SPOILED ROTTEN 

AND GET TO SWING BY WHENEVER WE WANT TO (DURING THE WEEK)
(AND NOT IN THE SUMMER).

SO BABE GETS TO TAKE THE BUDDY ON THE TEACUPS

AND MAKE IT GO REAL FAST

AND I GET TO SEE SMALL WORLD ALL DRESSED UP FOR THE HOLIDAYS 

AND BUDDY GETS TO TAKE PICTURES WITH MATER

AND I DO TOO. 

HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

Holiday season brings:
Christmas trees and ornaments,
Santa and reindeer,

Christmas lights and penguins (?)
Rainy days and umbrellas,
Presents and cards, too.

Cakes and pies and lots of booze.
Stay slender, my friends.

every time she sees an ornament. and that is why she is the best thing to ever happen to me in my life.

wknd pics to come later

I downloaded the new operating system on my old-ass iphone so I could listen to the serial podcast and now I can't get my pictures off my phone.

So, for now, you'll get the recipe of a cake I made this weekend.

Nobody ever had more apples than I have, so I googled a dessert with Fuji Apples. And here it is:

One Bowl Apple Cake
Link to Cooking with Gilmore


Ingredients:
2 eggs
1 3/4 cups sugar
2 heaping teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
6 medium Gala or Fuji or Honey Crisp apples
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, mix the eggs, sugar, cinnamon and oil. Peel and slice the apples and add to mixture in bowl (coating as you go to keep apples from turning brown.) Mix together the baking soda and flour and add to the ingredients in the bowl. Mix well (best with a fork) until all of the flour is absorbed by the wet ingredients. Pour mixture into a greased one 9x13 or two 9″ round pans. Bake for approximately 55 minutes.

haiku friday

its hitting us hard
i think, to see so plainly
how bad it is still.

its hard to ignore
when it keeps on happening
and nothing is done.

there's a lot of work
ahead. the challenge will be 
just not giving up.
