Weekend!

I first have to start of this post with a picture of our Furbaby! She had her yearly check up on Thursday and they drew blood and gave her this pretty pink bandage for her sore leg :) We have the greatest Vet, him and his staff are WONDERFUL and I wouldn't want to take Macy anywhere else!
She is such a little pumpkin :) <3


The hubby was busy this weekend, taking down our Christmas lights, it was fairly warm outside. We needed to take them down about 2 months ago, but hey I can't complain now :) Plus we are getting a new roof in a month or so, so they need to be down before April 15th! Can't wait to get rid of the ugly brown shingles and get some new grey ones :) I will post a before and after, once the project is done!


The hubby hard at work!

I also got to use my new Kitchen Aid Mixer this weekend!! :) I made a Cherry Coffee Cake, which is something I LOVE, but it makes WAY too much, so I am sure the hubby will be taking some to work, I am planning on making these sometime this weekend and I will take the extras to my co-workers :)

Cherry Coffee Cake, very good! but you have to limit yourself, i would hate to know the calorie count!!
Cherry Coffee Cake  preheat oven to 350, bake for 35-45 minutes
11/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup Crisco
11/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract ( optional)
4 eggs
3 cups flour
2-20 ounce cans cherry pie filling

Crumb Topping
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup margarine
1/2 teaspoon almond extract (optional)

Glaze
 1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons milk

Grease jelly roll sheet lightly. Blend everything except flour and pie filling on high speed. Slowly add while mixing the flour. Spread 2/3 of mixture onto the bottom of the pan. Spread pie filling on top, spoon remaining batter by teaspoon on top of pie filling. Sprinkle on crumb topping. After baking pour on glaze and sprinkle with slivered almonds if desired.

We had a nice and relaxing weekend, I am ready for Spring! We also have a couple DIY projects coming up, so stay tuned for those :)

Until next time,  <3
