Now for the real reason for the post:
This is the first time I'm participating in this Meme...looks like a good one!
1. I'm going to start off with Easter Sunday Mass at our old parish in SC. This church started as a mission church to the African American community, so the singing is outstanding! I've been singing the "Glory" all week. You can feel the love in that church!
2. A day off! Actually, I had 2 days off this week, but Thursday was spent with YS' high school band at a a band festival, so I'm not sure if that really counts! And, it was an absolute gorgeous day.
3. The Blind Side. We finally got around to watching it. What an exceptional movie! Sandra Bullock was very believable as the mom, but, in my opinion, Quinton Aaron was amazing. He had me feeling sorry for him and tearing up from the beginning of the movie.
5. This actually happened last Thursday, but my favorite coworker in the whole world made sure the staff ordered in last Thursday since 1) I was there (or so she gave that as the reason...I totally believed her!) and 2) we didn't have school on Friday due to it being Good Friday. It was nice not having to make sure I had a lunch ready to go that morning!
my other favorite coworker in the whole world (especially when she brings goodies to school on Tues. or Thurs.!) brought this Orange Cake to school. She also brought the chocolate chip pie last month. The Orange Cake was so moist and delicious, and she said that it took her no time at all to mix up and get into the oven! I borrowed her picture:
Preheat oven to 325
1 pkg. yellow cake mix
1 pkg. lemon pudding mix
3/4 C. orange juice
1/2 C. vegetable oil
1 t. lemon extract
1/3 C. orange juice
2/3 C. sugar
1/4 C. butter
Mix cake mix, pudding mix, 3/4 c. OJ, oil, eggs, and lemon extract. Pour into a greased bundt pan. Bake for 50-60 mins. (I baked mine 50 mins.) Let cool.
In a saucepan, cook 1/3 c. OJ, sugar, and butter for 2 minutes. Drizzle over cake. (I punched holes first using a toothpick)
