I wore a pretty casual outfit today: grey jeans and plaid.
Macy’s plaid shirt, JC Penney jeans
I got this shirt a long time ago (maybe 4 years? That’s a long time for a teen) but it’s still a favorite of mine. I like that it’s not a plain plaid shirt: it has cute ruching details along the sleeves and along the body. That makes it slightly more feminine, even though it has a pretty manly print 😛
I also made apple cake today! It was for my friend’s 18th birthday. I’m pretty proud of myself because it was super yummy! Here are some pictures:
It doesn’t look very much like a cake and didn’t taste like one either, but everyone still loved it! In the close-up, you can even see the soft apple chunks. You can’t see it that clearly, but I also put a sweet glaze/sauce on top.
You can find the recipe here: Grandgirl’s Fresh Apple Cake from Georgia
I didn’t have coconut, so I omitted it. I subbed in chopped up almonds for pecans and buttermilk mix for real buttermilk. As the reviews say, it’s a very forgiving recipe for any substitutions or omissions 🙂
I halved the recipe and ended up having a lot of extra sauce. So, I gave some to my sister to use as caramel sauce for apple slices and put the rest in a container for future use (pancakes, toast, etc.).
On another note, yesterday I took out the box of strawberries for a snack and realized that they were HUGE! I can barely fit 3 of them in my hand, and my hands are pretty big for my height! My family usually doesn’t buy organic, so their size is probably from herbicide/chemical overdose. They were still yummy though 🙂
Until next time,
