I Made a Cake!!

i have not blogged in a while. I seem to be in some kind of a slump. Maybe it is the February Slump! It is not that i am not doing things with the kids or making projects...i am just lacking the motivation to share it. Blah!



But, tonight i made a cake. The parents came over for the afternoon and for dinner, and i thought, "why not make cake?"!I did not think i was longing for spring just yet but maybe i am. This is a awfully spring like cake.

All you do it take a box angel food cake mix, and add one can of crushed pineapple(with the juice)...mix well and then back according to the box directions. I chose to serve it with some whipped cream(ok, i confess it was cool whip... it is not my favorite but i am trying to save myself some fat and calories so i thought it best to forgo the heavy cream whipped cream) and sliced strawberries on top.



It is very yummy....you should give it a try! this cake happens to be the favorite of the husband. Can you tell?

I see you made one for Chris, did you make another for everyone else :) I just so happen to have a box of AFC mix & a can of pineapple in my pantry... so, lemmie get this straight, just cake mix & pineapple? I have to bring something to MOPS on Thursday, looks like we have a winner!

I'm definitely going to try this out! Dumb question, but what size can of pineapple? If I don't ask, I'm sure I'll buy the wrong one. :-)
