NOT THE WOMAN, I USED TO BE!
We had some of our family over this past Friday evening to share supper with us. We had Fried Chicken, Mashed potatoes/chicken gravy, green beans, rolls, among some other things along with sweet tea.
It took me all day to do all that I had planned on doing. I told my husband when he got home, "I am sure not the woman, I used to be. I used to cook all this in just an hour it seemed while taking care of four children." We didn't have our daughter at that time. I worked constantly but things just seemed to keep popping up that I felt I needed to do. lol Oh, well, we had a fun evening and enjoyed it very much.
Today I am giving you all two recipes. One is for "copycat Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix." The other is for "Banana Split Cake." A good cake for this hot, hot weather we have been having.
