I got this in my inbox on Thursday. You named your baby what?
This is a list of the worst baby names given to actual kids living in the United States:
- •Uranus Stukey
•Lust T. Castle
•Mary A. Jerk
•Mule E. McCart
•Naught E. Bishop
So I had some rhubarb in the freezer and some sour cream in the fridge that needed using up. I googled for a recipe and came up with:
Sour Cream Rhubarb Squares
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 cup chopped nuts OR oatmeal
1 tbsp. butter
Rub all those ingredients together and put aside, that's the topping.
1/2 cup vegetable shortening, like Crisco (for the British and others, its like lard but vegetable based, not animal based)
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda (bicarb)
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1 1/2 cups rhubarb, chopped.
Mix the shortening and brown sugar in a mixer until well beaten and light. Add the egg and vanilla, mix well. Sieve, flour, baking soda and salt. Add a little bit of flour mix in, then add some sour cream, then flour etc. Fold in the rhubarb.
Place in a greased and lined 9" x 13" baking pan, and then sprinkle on the topping mix.
Bake in a preheated 350oF oven for 50 minutes or until done.
I have to say this is not how the recipe read when I downloaded it. The instructions were terrible and it didn't break down what to do when. Thank goodness I bake!! Mind you I am getting good at deciphering recipes through inputting the recipes for the church recipe book. Luckily I had the foresight to ask everyone to put their name and telephone number on the recipes, as I have had to ask questions on some of them!!
I doubled the recipe with no problems and made it with my Kitchen Aid mixer. So there is one for us and one for the neighbour!!
This is the neighbours one!! So fingers crossed he likes it!
So in the interest of all the people who read my blog, I cut myself a piece to try it!
I am pleased to report that it is very good and nice and moist! Gosh the things I do for you guys! Oh and the neighbour's liked it as well!!
Did you remember to put your money in your Daily Savings Pot? We are half way through the month already!!
Today's Money Saving Tip:
Mulch. Collect pine cones when ever you see them lying around and either use them as they are or I like to break them up into smaller pieces, which gives a similar look to bark chippings.
