February Food Fun

OK, I may really be stretching things…but right now, any cards I make have to be for a reason b/c I’m either behind in making what I need to or have certain ones in mind and am ahead of schedule!!  So in thinking of Janeen’s food challenge, I’ve been thinking of those gross (sorry if you like them…I can’t stand them…goes back to a Kindergarten experience that damaged me for life LOL!!!)  Marshmallow Peeps ever since I saw these bunnies over in the Silhouette store  (also inspired my a place setting card in the most recent PaperCrafts magazine)!  I bought them and made this cute, easy “Happy Spring” card to have in my stash for the blessedly hoped for season of spring!  Raided my kids pompom craft kit for the pink bunny tails.


Then I needed to make my cousin a birthday card.  Her birthday is today and the card will be late…  She loves sunflowers.  And well, I love sunflower seeds for snacking on!  See how it’s food related??  No, I know Janeen…you wanted more food as in food images I’m quite sure…but you’ll have to forgive my stretch of the imagination this time around!

And lastly, no more imagination needed, I made some real food to share with you…except, OH YES…you will need some more imagination.  Imagine that this cake does indeed have sugar in it.  Yesterday was not a good mojo day.  I really struggled to get anything done.  Finally felt like baking something and pound cake sounded reasonably appealing to my preggo mind.  As soon as it had cooled for a few minutes, I anxiously snuck a piece off the top and immediately went “Blech!”  Looked at the recipe to see what I forgot….should have known right off, I forgot the sugar.  Good grief.  But I rescued it…if you dollop enough Strawberry-Rhubarb jam on it, you’d never know.

So!  That’s all from me.  Thank you for stopping by and stretching your imagination with me.  Have a wonderful day!  LOL, leave a comment so I don’t have to imagine that you’ve visited me!!!!!!

  3. I don’t like peeps either! I think it’s the extra crunchy surgery stuff on the outside because I like marshmallows.
    The birthday card is very pretty and the cake looks yummy! Hope it hit the spot for your preto belly!
