Sunday desserts...


As usual I made a dessert to take to Sunday dinner at the kids' house.  This week it was a Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake by Easybaked.  It was easy and turned out very pretty.  The kids thought the frosting was a little too tart, and I would probably adjust it a little if I make it again.

I also took Asparagus Tomato and Avocado Salad.  When we had asparagus with them a couple of weeks ago, Beau was unhappy that Kasey prefers it overcooked, and so always makes it that way.  I love the cooked-but-with-a-tender-crunch texture of the asparagus when cooked as the salad recipe directs, so I knew he would appreciate that about it.  He's a good son-in-law, and he doesn't like sweets, so I like to take a dessert alternative especially for him occasionally.  :)

  6. Joolz...Thanks, I thought it looked pretty too. As did our Mexican asparagus, LOL. Of course Mexico is a lot closer to us than to you in Australia! :)

  9. Faith (LB)...Our HEB had good asparagus on Saturday, which was my deciding factor. 

    I’ve been really craving my mother’s pound cake, and can’t find the recipe. It’s here somewhere. But with that on my mind, I don’t think any boxed cake would have completely satisfied me.
