So I thought I'd share about my surprise birthday gift and a surprise I received in the kitchen on Sunday. The photo is of my precious Hobbit (David) and me when I opened the gently used iPad my family bought me for my Birthday.
I thought the vacation was my gift (and it was enough!) but a few months ago Christopher's office was selling an iPad that had been gently used to test Apps they designed (they always have to upgrade to the latest edition) and the kids decided it would make a great gift for me.
I am now in Apple love. I can do everything on it except when I need to type a lot... like blog posts, articles, and e-mails. I have even been watching some You Tube videos on it. Do you have any that are your favorites?
So that was a wonderful surprise. But Sunday's was not and it reminded me I'm "losing it" once in awhile.
I made a small cake for our Anniversary and when it came out of the oven, took a tiny bite from the corner to see how it turned out. Cough! Ugh! Blech! It was more than a little salty and I had not added salt to this recipe. So I wondered...
I took the sugar canister off the shelf and tasted a little of it. Sure enough. It was salt. It seems when I returned from Michigan, I poured what I thought was leftover sugar in the canister but it was the leftover salt. What can I say? It looks the same when you are busy unpacking.
I am SO thankful the mistake showed up in a small and inexpensive dessert just for Hubby and me. I poured out everything in the canister since a mixture of salt and sugar does no one any good and then proceeded to make another small cake with the right ingredients. It turned out very good. And sweet.
