Well tasty Thursday is here again! Okay, okay I know I am behind.

The boys wanted to go pick strawberries Sunday so after church we got ready and headed to Olney's local strawberry patch. Unfortunately the guy said with all the rain he was done with strawberries. Well the kids were very upset and holding back the tears so what does every mom do with there sad kids? I tried to fix it! I called Bigards in Newton and they were going to be open at 1:00 so off to Newton we go. In the mean time we missed our church picnic (sorry dad), but we had a great time.
So as I was going through one of my magazines I found a recipe for cream cheese pound cake.
WOW was it good!
1-1/2 cups butter, softened
1 pack cream cheese
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. lemon extract ( I just used a half of a lemon and squeezed it in)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
mix butter, cream cheese and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beat in extracts. Combine flour powder, and salt and beat into cream mixture. Pour into a greased fluted tube pan and bake at 325 for 50-60 min. Garnish with confectioners sugar and strawberries and whip cream! YUMMY!

Parker picked out two winners on accident last night so we have Jodi and Stella G. I know how to get Jodi's to her, but Stella G leave me a e-mail as to how I can get yours!
