Wordless Wednesday - I May Not Have Given Birth To Every One Of Them...

but they are my babies!

Aren't they beautiful?

(Sorry...I know it is suppose to be wordless, but how can I be wordless about them? They make me so proud)

Philadelphia is called...

the "City Of Brotherly Love". If this is the case, why did they give away the Tampa Bay Ray's hotel rooms and force them to move to a hotel in Delaware, about 25 miles from the ball park? It was noted well before the team checked out of their hotel rooms that the game may be postponed due to inclement weather...just like it had been delayed the night before.

Are they just scared that the Last To First Players will take the Series?

The sad part is that Tampa was expecting something like this. After all, this is the very same city that made the Tampa Bay Buccaneers sit in their plane on the runway for over 3 hours after they beat the Eagles.

Maybe the city should be re-named "The City Of Sour Grapes".

Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Sunshine Cake

Have you ever had this yummy, yummy cake? I have and let me just tell you that it is one of my favorites...but I have never tried to make it myself. Now I just found this recipe and it looks so easy that I might just have to whip one up later today.

Sunshine Cake


1 (18 1/2 oz) box yellow cake with pudding mix
1/2 cup salad oil
4 eggs
1 (11 oz) can mandarin oranges, un-drained


1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, un-drained
1 tablespoon sugar
1 (10 1/2 oz) package of cheesecake filling mix
1 (8 oz) carton sour cream
1 (12 oz) whipped topping, thawed

Preheat oven to 325°.

Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and oranges; mix at medium speed 1 to 2 minutes until smooth. Spoon into 3 greased and floured 9-inch cake pans. Bake for 15—20 minutes or until done.

Cool cakes in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool completely on wire racks.

Meanwhile, combine pineapple, sugar, cheesecake filling mix, and sour cream, and stir until thickened. Fold in whipped cream, mix thoroughly. Spread frosting between layers, top, and sides of cake. Garnish top with some mandarin oranges.

Store in refrigerator.

This cake is best made 24 hours in advance.

Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do...
