24 Years? How can it be?

We drove down to Columbus on Saturday to celebrate Andy's birthday. I can't believe that I have a child that is 24. Time really does fly. After a little shopping, we went out to eat at Red Robin. FYI: You can get a free gourmet burger on your birthday by signing up here I got the Southwest Grilled Chicken Salad that was on special. It was really good. We stayed overnite and attended church with Andy on Sunday. It was so nice to get away for the weekend.

Erica made Andy his favorite lemon cake (see recipe below)
Lemon Miracle Cake
1 sm box lemon jello
1 cup boiling water
1 pkg cake mix (we used lemon)
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1T lemon extract
4 eggs
Combine until smooth:
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
7 T Real Lemon Juice
Dissolve lemon jello in cup of boiling water; set aside to cool. Mix cake mix with oil, lemon extract add eggs one at a time on low speed-then add cooled jello and pour into 9x13 pan. Bake at 350○ for 40 minutes. Remove from oven and punch holes with fork all over hot cake. Immediately pour glaze over cake.
This recipe comes from our church cookbook. A very dear lady always brought it to every potluck.
