A Fond Farewell

I've been struggling with this decision for quite a while now.  Back and forth, back and forth, should I quit, should I just scale back, yes it was even included in prayers (which seems a little silly.)  So I've come to the decision that I need to stop blogging for now anyway, maybe things will change sometime in the future.  I just feel like I need to be doing other things with my life right now and blogging isn't the best use of my talents, time, or abilities.  So with that, I want to thank my family for all their support, thanks to the new friends I've made, and thank you to all my readers for all the nice comments you've made and for sticking with me.  Thanks especially to my sister, Leslie, for all her great posts and for all her support and advice.  I'll keep the blog open because you'll all want Leslie's great party ideas still.  :)

Name the movie quote I thought was fitting here:

"So, your adventures are over."

"Oh, no. To live, to live would be an awfully big adventure."  

(P.S. If you can't remember and it's on the tip of your tongue, edge of your brain and driving you nuts (like movie quotes do to me all the time, it's from the movie Hook. :)  )

Super Simple and Yummy Dessert

This is a really quick, really yummy, really simple recipe to have on hand, especially when company calls and are headed over and you want to make something to share with them.  It's very easy to keep the ingredients on hand for just such an occasion as well.  

Three ingredients is all you need for this yummy treat - a cake mix, pie filling, and butter, that's it, really!

Dump pie filling into a 9x13" pan.

Melt butter and stir into cake mix.

Crumble cake mixture on top of pie filling.  Bake.  It pretty much looks the same before it bakes as it does after.  Spoon it onto a plate and top with whipped cream (or ice cream) if you like.  Enjoy!  Really, that's all there is to it, the easiest dessert ever.  And you can change up the cake mix and the pie filling for different tastes.

The cat snuck up on me while I was outside taking pictures and popped into the picture.  Don't worry, he didn't eat any of it, just sniffed around it a little. :)

Easiest Dessert Ever
2 cans pie filling (I've used cherry and blueberry, our favorites)
1 cake mix (I've done chocolate and white)
1/2 c. butter, melted

Dump pie filling into 9x13" pan.  Melt butter and stir into cake mix.  Crumble cake mix on top of pie filling.  Bake at 350 degrees for 25 min.
