Good morning, ladies!! Happy Monday and Happy Presidents' Day! Thank you all for coming to the tea yesterday...Pam and LA - we missed you. It was nice to catch up with everyone!
Lady Consuelo looked fabulous....
Without the jacket....note the jewels!
Here's the recipe for 'Best Ever Chocolate Cake'.....

Combine first five ingredients in a bowl. Add the water, oil, vinegar and vanilla. Beat on low for 1 minute. Beat on medium for 1 minute.
Pour into a greased 13x9x2 pan. Bake at 350 for 35 to 38 minutes - test for doneness. Cool on rack.
1 c. cold milk
1 pkg (3.9 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix ** chocolate is good too**
1 tub cool whip
Beat the pudding mix and milk for 2 minutes. Beat in the whipped topping. Spread over the cake. Refrigerate.
LA just missed you guys. She came in to chat for a bit.
Lois brought some of her scrappy trip around the world blocks - really terrific. Can't wait to see the finished quilt - it's for a very special couple - I won't say more until it's official!
I'll leave you with this....
