  1. You're inspiring me to develop a sweet tooth!

  2. annie I will be posting alot more chocolate cake recipes. My family is chocoholics! The next one will be a chocolate oatmeal cake or chocolate mayonaise cake.

  3. I responded to several of your comments on my blog. I'll try to get pics of the casseroles before DF digs into them from now on. You are correct the deals have not been that great lately, here is to hoping for better sales in March. I'm very excited that I got that free gift card to my grocery store. Meat is my biggest expense. Yes I have a freezer stuffed to the point that we could eat for a month if we had to, but at the end of that month we would be up a creek. I am definitely going to have to watch for some sale on oats so I can make this. Sounds yummy. And you are correct most of the time there is no bowl used when making my noodles my dad made me a giant white cutting board type of thing I make them on because my countertop in my rental condo is chippy in areas so it made it difficult when trying to roll them out. Now I use my mixer because I can walk away and do other things like the dishwasher or chop the chicken etc while it turns the dough. Sometimes I just like mixing it by hand the way my grandma taught me though.
