This isn’t my picture but a picture that someone had forwarded to me and I wish I could give credit to that person. I thought this picture might be appropriate in some way to my title of Things Happen for a Reason. I wonder what the reason is that the tortoise is winning this race….hmmmmm.
I think that that things happen for a reason. Often times, its not worth fretting over something that’s not going your way. Think of it as a chance to step aside with your plans because something better is coming along. You’ll feel better in the meantime….
When you stop to think about it how often does something happen and your first thought is “oh my goodness, I am sooo glad that this didn’t happen after all because this came along or that happened instead or what would I have done if that HAD happened…” It all happens for a reason I believe although you may not see it at the time or it may be so irrelevant that you don’t think anything more about it or the subsequent happenings.
Let me know I’m really interested on your take…
Its About the Drumstick Cake Revisited….
Well in July and again in August I posted about this Drumstick Cake to which I gave the recipe. A lady at work makes and loves it and I thought I wouldn’t be making it right away and I thought it would be fun for someone else to try the cake and send me the picture to use and let me know what they thought. I wanted to send a prize to that person of my handcrafted soap. Well no one has done it yet! I hope someone does because I’m all ready to send the soap. Its a yummy cake you know….yum!

I LOVE EBAY!
You can get lost in there as you find all the next things you’d like to order and get a good deal as well. I found an interesting book “Making Vintage Bags” at Chapters/Indigo for $35.97 (+ 7% tax) Cdn funds yesterday. I was also interested in the book “Simple Gifts to Sew” I read about in http://blairpeter.typepad.com. She said it was a fabulous book. Today I purchased both books on ebay and including the shipping I ended up with 2 books for the price of one! I saw one of the books even cheaper than that on ebay but I wanted to combine the shipping costs so it was better for me to get the one I did. Now I’ll be like a little kid waiting for Christmas to arrive. :o)
DRUMSTICK CAKE (Make the cake…send me a picture to use…and your critique and I’ll send you a gift – check August post)
I like to share recipes that I’ve tried first myself so I can tell you all about them. However this came from a lady who has made it and raves about it. I know I won’t get a chance to try it for a while but it sounded tooooo good to not give you the chance to try. Someone commented this is probably better than the BaskinRobbin’s cake. If you try the recipe and send me a picture of it…I’ll send you a gift!! how’s that?
9 x 13 greased pan
1-1/2 cups crushed vanilla wafers
½ cup chopped nuts (I usually leave this out)
¼ melted margarine
3 tablespoons peanut butter
Mix above all together Use 1 cup for the base and the rest for the top
1 package Philadelphia cream cheese
½ cup sugar
½ peanut butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 large Coolwhip
Blend together first 5 ingredients and then add Coolwhip and pour on top of base.
Drizzle ½ cup of hot fudge sauce (sundae topping) over top. (I use at least 1 cup)
