First of all, this cake is so random. A girlfriend at work made this cake, and it was so good and easy, I tried it. Now, I am NOT, I repeat NOT, a baker. I generally throw ingredients in the pan all willy nilly, no measuring, just what looks good.
However, I decided since the cake only took the following ingredients, I would try it.
1 can crushed pineapple with juice (20 oz.)
1 box angel food cake mix
(What is freaky is that I searched Bing for 'angel food cake box images' and this came up as an image. This is EXACTLY what I bought.) It is from this blog. The recipe is copied from the blog, and I did it almost exactly the same way.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray or grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan. (I used a silicon bundt pan sitting on a cookie sheet and I didn't grease it.) With minimal mixing, combine entire can of crushed pineapple with angel food cake mix. (I had to mix it quite well to get the powdered mix to absorb the pineapple/juice.) Pour into prepared baking pan and bake for 30 to 40 minutes. (Mine took about 30 minutes.) Cake should be lightly browned and center tested done when fully baked. Cool inverted. (I don't know what that means, so mine just sat out on the counter while I grabbed pieces off.)
One of the best parts (besides how easy and GOOOOOD it is) is that it's fat free and I'm sure SUPER low in WW points. Which is important, especially when you eat 1/4 of it for breakfast the next day. What? It's like pound cake. That is clearly a breakfast food.
Moving on, Emma is a total sickie (term from Katie). Girlfriend had a 102.4 fever last night and a mild cough. I dosed her with some intermittent Motrin hits, and she was fine this morning, fever free. Obvs, we kept her home from her babysitters (where alllll kinds of crud has been going around). Jason took the morning shift, I went off to work to prepare my classroom for the afternoon shift. I left at 12 and came home to take over. All seemed fine, no fever to be had throughout the day. She was and is a little cranky and clingy (not normal for her!), and she was eating okay. Jason talked to the doc this morning, and since Emma is scheduled for her 18 month checkup tomorrow, they said to just wait on bringing her in since she was sleeping and eating.
She took a 2 hour nap this afternoon, and I thought we were good to go. Then, I felt her before bath, and she was burning up. Fever was 101.4. What?? We took a lukewarm bath and got jammied up. She was walking around talking about "DoDo" (Dora) and "reading" her new Dora book/waiting for Dora to come on at 7:00. She wasn't really into taking her milk.
I noticed that she had some flush in her cheeks, and I immediately wigged out that she had 5ths. I don't think that is what's going on though. SO, I guess we are doing the split shifts again tomorrow and going to see the doc. My poor monkey is sad. I couldn't even take a decent picture to capture her unfortunate-ness.
Speaking of tomorrow, it is THE BIG DAY!
We are going to (hopefully) find out what this baby is. If you read Brittany or Brittany, you know that both of their gender reveals were less than ideal, with their babes (both girls???) not totally giving up the goods. I'm sure they are girls though!
So, at 1:45 tomorrow, we are going to see if we are having an HME (boy name) or a girl. No name disclosure, don't even ask. :) I will direct you to a post as soon as I can!
Jason has to go back to work, and Emma's doctor checkup is at 3:15, so I will have to keep up parenting business as usual. Not a lot of time to dilly dally and write a post now is there? :) I won't keep y'all hanging too long!
What's been going on in your lives? Please fill me in. I feel removed from y'all!
Also, Emma sends some hugs and kisses to all of her grandparents, especially FeFe who is sick right now! Get well soon!
