Recipe and Leap Year freebie

Yesterday and today have not been my best days.
I know we all  have our days. 
Yesterday was mine....nothing a good cry can't fix though (remember - still hormonal here, people!)
and today?? 
MONSTER headache. And on the day I can start working out and running again. 
Thank you Universe...


And, I have a question for y'all 

How can I be IN my Google Reader, and get through all the posts so it reads that I have "0" updates...then 
BAM!

129 posts!!! (Dating back all the way to January 28th....)

Something is wrong.

Why is it doing this? Anyone else have this happen to them?

So, I'm sorry if you think I've forgotten about you. I haven't. But apparently, Google Reader has. :(

Ok. Moving on.

I wanted to share with you one of my favorite go-to desserts....for home and to take to parties.

It's my version of a strawberry shortcake...well, my momma's version.

I'm doing this recipe in honor of the Strawberry Festival in Plant City, FL that I always used to go to - it's hike to get over there,  but it's a huge event....


That's my friend and me sitting in the "Strawberry Queen" chair a few years ago..lol! See our YUMMY strawberry shortcakes??

Anyway...here's my dessert:



All you need is 
~a container of strawberries, and cut them all up nice and small...if I was taking this to a party, I'd leave some strawberries and slice them up thinly and lay them on the top for a pretty presentation.
~pound cake (I use Sara Lee from the frozen section) - you could also use Angel Food cake
~Big box of vanilla pudding (prepared as directed)
~cool whip

Mix the cut-up strawberries in the vanilla pudding.
Slice the pound cake (I do thinner slices, but you can make them as thick as you want)
Layer:
pound cake, pudding, pound cake, pudding.....then cool whip!
Voila!
It's best if you let it sit over night to let the pound cake soak in the flavors,
But um.....I never can! lol


Also, I uploaded a math game for Leap Year in my TpT store...I did it yesterday, but since I was having a day, I never got around to letting y'all know.
It's 3-digit place value review.
It's not new - just made it purttier.

It's free :)
Click the pic to go grab it.



I hope to get caught up on my blog stalking tonight...I'm sure I'm missing out on some good stuff.

Sorry yesterday was sucky :(
I don't know what's up with reader. I'm also having trouble with my blog list on my sidebar. I've imported all the blogs I follow and they're supposed to show up there, but some just dont! I think I'm going to have to take the time to do it manually. I keep missing good stuff!

Wanna take a run to my house with that cake? I'm totally down with that! :)

Hope your day is much better than yesterday!

With Google Reader, I click 'mark all as read" when I'm done with a blog so that I know I read all the posts there. Don't know if that will help or not.

And the recipe...yum! :)

I'm sorry you've had a rough day. I think you should eat one of those tasty strawberry thingies instead of working out...but that's probably bad advice.

Thanks for the freebie!!! :) My kiddos LOVE scoot!:)

Here's a funny for you---my teaching partner and I showed up at work today with the EXACT same shirt on, khaki pants and brown shoes!!! It was funny to watch peoples faces as they realized "Hey, y'all have on the same shirt!!" We always say that we share a brain--and I guess a wardrobe too! :)

Have an awesome day tomorrow!! :)

I am counting down the minutes to the Strawberry Festival! I was born in Plant City so I think there are strawberries in my blood. The post I did for the 100 days had the first 100 strawberries picked from a Dole farm there. =)
Plus this year...I get to see REBA in concert! AND have shortcake! I may pass out from the excitement. =)
Have a better day!
