Happy Birthday to….

ME!  So how will I celebrate?  I made me a birthday cake YESTERDAY, and the party started. 


OOPS!  Looks like a piece is missing!  I had cake with my afternoon coffee, and cake for dessert after supper last night.  So I think I will have cake with coffee again today for breakfast… It’s my BIRTHDAY, I can do what I want to!!

My MOST FAVORITE EVER cake is a pineapple-coconut.  Since I was very young I always asked for one of these for my birthday, and there is nothing easier to make.

Just bake a butter recipe yellow cake mix as directed (I prefer Pillsbury) in a 9 x 13” pan, then frost with this….

1 large can of crushed pineapple

1 cup sugar (I used Splenda)

1/4 cup flour

Mix these ingredients well in a saucepan; cook on med. heat, stirring constantly until thick.  Add 1 cup shredded coconut (I use a little more… I love coconut) and stir well.  Ice cake and let set for a few minutes. 


SOOOOO… I’m making my wish list (more pieces to go with my Staxx Ring, which I will purchase when I go to town), and making big plans for Friday.  I need to work today, but my sister and Mom are taking me out to lunch on Friday, then DH is taking me out for seafood buffet on Friday night.  I may forget where the kitchen is located in this house!

Birthdays are wonderful because I get pineapple coconut cake.  I only cook this for my birthday because… I EAT IT ALL UP!  I figure once a year, I am allowed.

Have a really blessed day… I know I will, too.



  1. Have a great day! and we'll need to plan a meal out with BIL and SILs
