Easy-Peasy Lemon Bars


Friday night we played cards with our card playing friends.  We just get together over the winter for a few nights of playing cards.  Most everyone in the group somehow has a farm related job so the rest of the year all of us are pretty busy.

The tradition is that everyone bring some type of munchy, appetizer or something that can be eaten on a small paper plate.  Dips are the thing most people bring so Friday I decided to try to come up with something to use of (yet another) of my box cake mixes.  (Remember Hubby’s challenge to me to use up the 18 cake mixes I had before we moved??)  Well I have not forgotten the challenge…I have six left after I used an angel food cake mix to make these lemon bars for card club

How’s this for easy.

Ignoring the instructions on the cake mix box.  Mix the angel food cake mix and one can of lemon pie filling.


Spread it out onto a greased bar pan.


Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.

Frost when cool.  I made some homemade frosting using a 8 oz pack of cream cheese, a stick of margarine, a teaspoon of vanilla and 2 tsp of lemon juice…then added enough powdered sugar until the frosting was the right consistency.


That was easy..now to balance that off, I am going to go wash some baby carrots to bring with too.  Something tempting and something healthy.

Back From the Vet


The vet got us in early this morning which I very much appreciated.  We’re home now and hopefully on the mend.


She’s awake from the sedative but not her perky self yet.  In fact, after I get done writing this I am going to see if I can get her to lay down again.  She’s really fighting sleep but in the end, it’s the best thing for her.

In the night she had licked the wound and it opened up a little more so it’s a good thing we went to the vet.


She’s got about six stitches that are wide apart so it can still drain.  She has some pain meds and some antibiotics.

The vet isn’t sure it the skin flap will actually adhere back in place but if it doesn’t, at least for now, it’s keep the flesh covered and act like a band aide.

Someone asked me about fostering a pup but for now, I’m holding off hoping to give Ruby a week or two to get back to herself.  As much as I love fostering, my dog still comes first.  It’s great to know that others are out there that can foster when I can’t.

I’m off the snuggle my Ruby…thanks for the kind comments and well wishes.
