Morning! This is another "barn kitty" that was just begging me for a photo shoot...silently...yes, I heard his voice in my head...Hahaaa....and it's about the last good time I've had lately.
Trust me, I look at this every day...Remember these days? A good old fight on the playground! Yep, good times.
This hunk of sugar is white chocolate. I used the microwave on the first batch and then a double boiler on the last of the bars...BOTH batches seized up on me! I have NO clue as to why...trashed! Money down the drain....
All because I thought I could make Cake Balls...My daughter Crystal, pops 'em out like the recipe was made Only for Her! Me? Not so much...In fact if I EVER see another cake ball I should surely do something dastardly...truly. I tell you I had chocolate all over my kitchen but I hung in there! I finally got the dark chocolate to melt but then I rolled the cake balls in it and put them on a RACK to dry...a RACK...YES! I'm an IDIOT!Hahaaaa....I had to push them up from the bottom to get them off that rack...what a mess. Crystal then states: "I TOLD you to use wax paper...I Did!" I only tried making these so I could give them to our son in law for his doing me a favor here at work last week.
What a mess, huh?!!Hahahaaaa.....gads....Then Crystal (the daughter) blithely states that the recipe is SO EASY TO MAKE.....so easy.....ok....I'm going to HER house next time and letting her mix up a batch. AND, I'm timing her!Hahaaa. Surprisingly, I like how they taste...Lime Balls. I like lime...but this was not a project for me to try out ALONE!Hahaaa...How did I get chocolate on my elbow?????

Saturday, we went to the local farmer's market. I had called on Friday and placed an order for Cherry Lime cupcakes. We arrived and decided to purchase a few things before picking up our order like locally made olive oil and fresh cream cheese. They took a back seat to these cupcakes...geeeez...Talk about a blast of lime!! Wonderful! Wish I could figure out the recipe...Twelve cupcakes...Eighteen dollars...I KNOW!!!!Hahahaaa....but now we know and the sweetest young lady made them. Maybe Pinterest has a recipe. Here's the link to their farm, Pecan Bluff Farms.
The rest of the day was spent resting...Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!

Hello friends...Hope you all are enjoying your day, I went to my sister's on Saturday and got to play a little bit with my camera. I really haven't been doing much of that lately. But then again, there haven't really been any "cute" subjects running around in front of me lately that you haven't seen!
I took several different shots but this is the only one I'll post today due to EMPTY PHOTO COFFERS...Hahaaaaa.....geeez. I have a few excuses as to why that is that I could use, but I won't. I'm just pitiful!
This little guy was just so sweet and shy...just watching me. Even when I came in for the closeup, he was very still. Love his eyes!
Well, it's Monday again. Hope you all enjoy a safe and peaceful day.
