We’ve had a few requests for the recipe for Amanda’s “famous” White Texas Sheet Cake. It’s always a hit (and better if you make it the night before you want to eat it…but my family can’t wait that long).
1 cup butter
1 cup water
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup milk
4 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1 cup chopped walnuts
1. In a large saucepan, bring 1 cup butter or margarine and water to a boil. Remove from hear, and stir in flour, sugar, eggs, sour cream, 1 tsp. almond extract, salt, and baking soda until smooth. Pour batter into greased 10 x 15 x 1 inch baking pan.
2. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-22 minutes or until cake is golden brown. Cool for 20 minutes.
3. Combine 1/2 cup butter or margarine and milk in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Mix in confectioners’ sugar and 1/2 teaspoon almond extract. Stir in walnuts. Spread frosting over warm cake.

This week, we were invited to Jeannie’s garage sale. They’re raising money to fund the adoption of their daughter from Haiti. It’s been a very long process for the family, and it looks like they’ll be going to pick her up sometime in the next month.
We left Sue’s rocking chair at Jeannie’s house and found something else that rocks. It’s a rocking horse that’s supposed to make sounds and shake its head and tail. After a minor surgical procedure (a.k.a. installing batteries) by John, our engineer Tom, and Intern Dan, we still can’t get it to work…but we’ll keep trying!
Jeannie’s sale goes through Saturday at 1019 Bunkerway Drive in Wyoming. We’d love to visit your garage sale…let us know when and where it is through the Family Friendly Morning Show Facebook Page!

The Large Scale Garage Sale made a visit to Sand Lake last week, thanks to an invitation from Sue. It didn’t take long for us to trade our picnic basket for a ROCKING CHAIR! We were so excited to get it that we didn’t think about how to fit it in the WCSG Jeep. John’s logic and expert packing skills came in handy.
We’ll try to trade the chair for something else this week. Let us know about your sale at the Family Friendly Morning Show Facebook page.

This week, we were invited to Leah’s garage sale as part of the Family Friendly Morning Show Large Scale Garage Sale. Before we had a chance to trade last week’s projector for another item, a friend of hers decided to buy it from us.
We used that money to purchase a fully-equipped picnic basket and some cookies from the kids at the sale.
We’d love to visit your garage sale – just let us know when and where you’re having it through the Family Friendly Morning Show Facebook page.

The WCSG Large Scale Garage Sale made a stop this week at Jessica’s sale. She’s raising money for her journey as a missionary in India. She took last week’s mask and helped us trade up for a projector. The sale goes through Saturday at 1910 Lotus in Grand Rapids.
Let us know about your sale at the Family Friendly Morning Show Facebook page, and we’ll do our best to visit, thanks to support from Danny Boy’s Drive-In Theater!
