Think on These Things #14 ~ Psalm 91

After completing the book, Living the Cross Centered Life by C.J. Mahaney, our community group Bible study is finishing the year studying Psalm 91.
It is a beautiful Psalm and I am sharing each verse with a photo of a blossom from my garden this spring.

Orange Angel Cake

A very lite and very pretty dessert. Just 140 calories per serving is sweet!

Orange Angel Cake
Pampered Chef Delightful Desserts cookbook, page 10-11

Servings 15

1 package angel food cake mix
1 package (0.3-oz) sugar free orange jello (or flavor of choice)
3/4 cup boiling water
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups Cool whip Lite, thawed
1 orange( optional)
1/2 pint raspberries (optional)

Preheat oven to 350. Prepare cake mix according to directions. Pour batter into ungreased rectangular baker, spreading evenly.

Bake on center rack in oven 35 to 40 mins or until top is golden brown and cracks feel dry and not sticky.
Carefully turn baker upside down onto cooling rack, cool 45 mins. Do not remove cake from baker.

Using fork or metal skewer, poke holes in cake about 1 1/2" deep and 1/2" apart.

Place gelatin in small bowl. Pour boiling water into gelatin, stir about 2 mins or until completely dissolved. Stir in cold water. Slowly pour gelatin evenly over cake. Refrigerate 3 hours.

Frost cake with cool whip using large spreader. Cut into squares. Garnish with orange slice, zest, raspberries and mint, if desired.

Low fat: 140 calories per slice

NOTE:  When I poured the Jell-O onto the top of the cake, it pooled in the center.  I used a meat injector to inject the Jell-O and it worked like a charm.

Mother's Day Weekend

Saturday, John and I worked from 7am until 3pm in the yard weeding, trimming bushes and adding a new berm where there was a bare spot from a Japanese Maple we lost last year.  We quit to shower and dress for a drive to my cousin's son's wedding reception.  We picked up my sister on the way and headed to a lovely evening with family and friends.
Johnny and Nanea had a beautiful beach wedding a few weeks ago in Hawaii

A Sweet Pixie

I tested the pattern for this adorable crocheted top/dress designed by Amanda @Pardon my Chaos in a size that would fit little Cambrie. I hurried to finish it and took it over today hoping she would be cooperative in trying it on so I could get a few photos.
