Re: Two week notice

Hi Bluebirdie, thanks for asking.
I'm on the mend. My incisions are healing, although I had a reaction to the adhesive in the bandages and developed very uncomfortable blisters around the area. The lab work came back with clear margins on one lesion (very good), and maybe not so clear on a second. Maybe only because I've gotten two different opinions. They're going to re-do the lab work and verify. Either way I go back in January.
My girls are fabulous!

Re: Two week notice

I am glad to hear you are doing good and hope those blisters are gone soon also that the re-do of the lab comes back as the first one very good

Have a wonderful day!

Re: Two week notice

Thanks for the update, P2. I hope you get good news on the lab results all around!

I'm undecided on which pants to wear today -- smarty, fancy or sassy?

Re: Two week notice

Venting Update (sorry):

So Triple D (despicable deadbeat dad) called yesterday. He's not coming to see the kids for Christmas, but maybe he'll try to see them in January. I'm not holding my breath and neither are the kids. He hasn't seen the kids in over a year and it doesn't seem to bother him. I just don't get it. The life of a single guy must just be exhausting...... And it can't be from working so hard because there's no CS this month. He sure knows how to spread that holiday cheer. Arse.

And, I get to replace my 35 year old HVAC system! I really can't complain about not getting mileage out of the old system, but I will complain about the timing. I feel comfortable doing a lot of repair work around our house, but this is way beyond my comfort level so I'm calling in the pros.....and my home equity.

I go back to the MD in January and am hoping for clean labs. Keep those holly branches crossed for good luck.

Re: Two week notice

I know your feeling about not getting what goes into their minds for not caring to see their children. XH has almost no contact with my son and live like 10 minutes away! It hurts what our kids go though much more than what we do.

But then I remember when my dad left when I was 15 and has been trying to get into my life for almost 5 years after 23 of absense... how things change! I grew without him and got used to it. Hopefully this will happen to the kids too. No fun though at the beginning.

I pray for your test to come back clean and for you to be able to fix your HVAC one way or the other. Just yesterday my mixer broke, the manual one too and was in the middle of making 40 cakes... ended up manually doing them. Also internet went away and returned until today, no phone lines, also back now... I was afraid of touching things so they didnt broke lol...

Wish you a great rest of the day dear Pluto!

Youre doing it all wrong.

Grab a drill and your least expensive whisk. Cut the endloop off the end and mount the whisk in the drill bit holder, tighten, and go to town!

Thats the way I mix paint. Works like a charm!

Pluto, I hope your labs come back so negative the hospital sends you a 20 along with it.

Re: Two week notice

Sure sure, here is it for a 9" round cake pan:

WEEKEND LIME CAKE

Pound cake:
6 eggs
340gr soften butter
340gr sugar
340 gr flour and 1 tsp baking powder (both sifted together)
1 tsp vanilla
3 lime zest

Glazing:
325 gr confectioners sugar
1 lime zest
1.5 lime juice

PROCEDURE:

- Mix slowly butter + sugar with the globe whisk to give air
- Add lime zest and vanilla
- Start adding flour mixture and eggs by parts. Start with dry, end with dry
- Pour into a 9" round pan sprayed with Pam or if super teflon one, perhaps a parchment circle
- 350C for 30-40 min, let it cool and then add the mixture of the glazing

-----------------------

It is really simple. I made 18 recipes, 3 by 3 each time for 40 9x5" rectangular cakes. Guess I should have made them by 2 at the time not to get my Kitchen Aid suffer I have it back now, but until I get the new metal gear I will only be able to mix egg whites

Hope you make it, it is really delicious!!!!
Don't doubt to ask for recipes, I have a lot of them I have compiled during my years of classes and also international ones, including India Love to share them!

Re: Two week notice

metric system? Great, now I have to wake up my 13 yr old DD from her holiday slumber to do the conversion, because we old folks just never mastered that part.
LOL just kidding Bluebirdie. Thanks for the recipe. And I have limes in the fridge!

Re: Two week notice

Great!! I made the conversion to ounces in the scale, here is it:

For the sugar and flour it is 12 ounces or 1.5 cups. For butter also 12 ounces or 4 sticks (80gr ones) not the small ones.

For confectioners sugar, add one bag and mix until it is ok to put over the cake.

Hope it helps and you can bake it!
