I was looking in the food area at cake mixes. I really like Big Lots. I buy my water there and they have such interesting food items. I swear they are items that never made it in the big stores, who knows? Anyway, a lady who I don't know, told me that you can take any cake mix and add 1 egg and 2 cups of whipped cream (like Cool Whip) and make cookies. So, I thought "why not give it a whirl?"
She also told me the Pink Lemonade cake mix was really good.
The picture below are the cookies BEFORE they were baked.
Below is a picture of them after they came out of the oven. Not a big difference.
I thought they looked like pink blobs, and needed something...
So I made buttercream icing.
Yes, that's better. I added lemon juice to the icing for tartness.
Since they are made from a cake mix, they kind of taste like cupcakes.
There is no extra fat (oil or butter) added, so you might consider
them to be somewhat healthier.
Can cupcakes be considered healthy? Sure.
These are not my favorite cookies, but in a pinch not bad.
Maybe it was the Pink Lemonade. Kids would probably love them.
She never gives ME a problem, but the groomer told me last time that she is getting a bit nippy with her. So we hope the solution is for me bathe her before she gets groomed. Tonight was that night.
I take her to this pet supply store, Pet Planet, down the street. For $10, you can use the stainless steel sink, their shampoo and conditioner, their heavy-duty drier, and towel to bathe your dog. She can't jump out - although she tried today when I had my back turned. What a bargain, right? And the mess stays at Pet Planet. I definitely love that aspect about it.
I had a hard time getting her to hold still so I could get her picture. I told her it was for the blog, but she didn't seem interested at all.
I wasn't organized enough to get pictures of her dinner and our get together. She requested chicken and dumplings for dinner, but she's not a fan of birthday cake. I found a cake mix by Duff Goldman (a/k/a Ace of Cakes). It was neopolitan, so I thought why not?
