Twenty Years

Olivia is 20 today!  She’s a sweetie!





We headed out for pizza at Mellow Mushroom.DSCF3750 DSCF3752 DSCF3753

Then, back to the dorm for presents.  Lots of presents.




We finished with our family favorite pound cake and then Olivia had to do some homework.  Not as much fun as presents but a necessary part of a twenty-year-old life.


Here’s the pound cake recipe for an easy but delicious dessert

Pound cake

3 cups sugar

1 stick butter

1/2 cup shortening

6 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 point whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a Bundt pan. In a mixing bowl, cream sugar, butter and shortening.  Beat in eggs. Add flour, whipping cream, and vanilla extract.  Bake for 1 and 1/2 hours.  Cool 10 minutes in pan.  Invert on wire rack and remove cake from pan.  Cool completely.
