~sunday blues~

does anyone feel this way on sunday?? i feel so blah. its not even like its THIS sunday....i can honestly say that sunday is my least favorite day of the week.....i HATE it.....its the predecessor as of what is coming starting bright and early monday morning......WORK. blah. its not even that i dislike my job....(well, i am not loving it lately, but not HATING it)....but it is work. i am tired of working period. oh well. cant complain, because quite honestly, nobody cares or listens anyway!

i wanted to post a fun giveaway that danica, from danica's daily is hosting! click HERE to get all the deets! fun chinese food~a target gift card and a whole lot more!!! super cool....did i mention i LOVE chinese food?!?

i hope you all had a fantabulous weekend.....we had a very low key, quiet, relaxing one to say the least. the boy worked late friday, which allowed me to make the heavenly, butter tasting caramel corn....refer here  for an amazing sweet fix! i think i have eaten 1/2 of it myself.....saturday we didnt do a whole lot. it SNOWED again. can i say i am over snow? i am tired of freezing. i am tired of having to hear that boy bitch  i mean, complain, about how many times he has to shovel the drive....ugh. i am just plain old over the white stuff. god, please bring me spring....QUICKLY!

i made a delish apple cake to pass the time away....if you like apples, cinnamon, CAKE...then you will love this recipe. its another super easy...(can you tell i am all about easy recipes?)...this would be quite delish on a fall day with a cup of coffee or tea.....it is SUPER moist!

apple cake

preheat oven to 350'. spray bundt pan with cooking spray.

5 apples peeled and cut into small pieces
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 stick butter or margarine
1/2 cup canola or vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps cinnamon ( i also added some pumpkin pie spice)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda

mix eggs, butter, oil and sugars until creamy. add dry ingredients and mix until blended. batter will be fairly thick. ( perfect for licking the mixing paddle!) fold in apples. pour into bundt cake pan.
bake for approximately 50 mins. 



















as you can see from my pic....it crumbled slightly....when i cut a piece....it was pretty warm when i transferred from bundt pan to cake plate.....ahhhh.....it was still heaven to the palate!! enjoy~

i hope you all have a wonderful end to your weekend.....it goes by TOO fast!
hugs and love,
t
