Weekend Update Strawberries and Empty Shelves

Saturday was a beautiful day, sunny, cool with a light breeze.  I was slowed down with dizziness that may have been caused by the lingering cold.  I think my sinuses are still jacked up.  I started back with the prescribed nasal spray, and popped a couple of DayQuil and eventually felt better.

I did get the kitchen cleaned up and a load of clothes done.  My daughter picked up a few things at the store for me, so I didn't have to go out.  And then the hubs brought home take out pizza. 

Sunday, I felt better and went to Publix to pick up strawberries that are on sale for more strawberry shortcake.  The first time I made the strawberry shortcake, I bought those little angel food like cups that come 6 in a pack.  The family wanted more cake so I check the bakery to see what they wanted for an actual Angel food cake.  They wanted $6.49 for a cake. I thought that was a little high so I went back to the cake mix aisle and Publix also had cake mixes BOGO.  I picked up two boxes of Angel food cake mix for $2.29.

Now, I have never made an Angel food cake, but how hard could it be?  I don't have a traditional angel food cake pan so I improvised and used a bundt pan.  Mixing up the cake mix was easy, just add water and mix for a min.  The package directions said to put the filled pan on the bottom rack, (remove all the racks in the oven except the bottom one).  Good thing I followed directions because the cake really poofs up!

Angel Food Cake was a bit Poofy





The cake tastes much better than those cake-like cups in packages too.

After church yesterday, we went out to lunch at Firehouse Subs.  It has been MONTHS since we have gone out to eat after church.  Typically we come home and have sandwiches, usual and boring.  But, we both wanted Firehouse.  We each got a sub with a combo, mine was medium and the hubs got a large sub.  I had the pastrami sub and it was so good! But....I was suddenly reminded just how expensive it is to eat out, even for subs at lunchtime.  The bill came to $24.65.  Good grief. 

We passed by Target and checked out the Clorox aisle.  It was wiped out. 
TARGET BLEACH SHELVES

Publix was almost the same, but they did have a sign restricting 2 bleach items per purchase.

I don't know, we are washing our hands all the time and when out we use hand sanitizer. What else can you do, besides just stay home?

  1. Have you tried making shortcakes with Bisquick like I put on my blog a day or two ago? I hate those little cup things they sell for shortcake, too. I was just wondering if angle food cake mix was good. I will still make the Bisquick shortcakes. I just want angel food. Now, I know it is good.
