Recipe you'll love to hate

We eat healthy breakfast everyday of the week at our house except Sunday. Sunday is our Waffles, Pancakes, Cinnamon Roll day and it is naughty. Today was no exception. There are a few recipes that I only allow myself to make one time every year or two, they are that good. And bad. Oh so bad. This is one of them. I absolutely love it and hate it at the same time. I have lost a few pounds the past few weeks and without a doubt put every last one back on this morning while eating this. This came from a cookbook given to me when we were first married that was written by our Stake Relief Society Presidency. With out further adieu, I present:

Blueberry Breakfast Cake

3/4 c. sugar
1 stick butter
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
3/4 tsp salt
2 cups frozen/fresh blueberries
Mix all ingredients (I mix dry then add to wet) and put in a 9X9X2 pan.

Prepare crumb topping:
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup flour
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter, cut in
Mix until crumbly and sprinkle over cake before baking. Bate at 375 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes.
I have made these into muffins in the past with great results too, just watch the baking time.

(as if a cake and crumb topping isn't enough, lets add a glaze)
1/2 cup powder sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp - 2 tsp hot water
Mix all ingredients and drizzle over cake while hot.

Labor Day adventures

Since we are so lucky to be a short half hour drive to the the canyon we thought we would head up for Labor Day. I had heard about Silver Lake from my cousin and friend and thought it sounded perfect for us. We had so much fun enjoying the cool, crisp air, a great hike, fun company, laughter and a yummy picnik. We will be going back very soon to see the fall colors. This was a great activity for young kids, there is a great boardwalk that goes around the lake and lots of spots for fishing.

And so it begins

Weird, since when do they let little babies go to preschool?
Two little sisters and friends, side by side as they start
yet another adventure together.
This one makes my cry a bit if I start to think too much about it.
As my mom says,
Do preschoolers wear backpacks or do their backpacks wear them?
