A Major Award - Thanks Betty Crocker

My man called me at work yesterday afternoon and said that a box had arrived for me. I knew I was expecting a major award. Could this be it???

It was!!!

Betty Crocker picked 100 of their Twitter followers to receive a prize. I just didn't know it would be this big.

There are 5 cake mixes, 3 muffin mixes, 3 tubs of icing and one very cute red Betty Crocker spoon all inside a handy bag.

I know, I know... I usually don't use pre-packaged mixes any more. But they come in handy every once in a while. I do live in the real world after all. And when you're teaching your kids how to cook, the occasional cake mix works really well to teach them how to follow directions without a lot of ingredients to mix up.

So, thank you so much Betty Crocker. You blessed me so much today. (And you may have just solved my after school snack idea for the girls' Bible study I'm hoping to start with the girls in my daughter's grade.)

Y'all have a sweet weekend. It looks like I will!

Congrats! I don't use cake mix alot but I have several recipes that call for them as part of something fancier. In fact, I just used one during this camping trip to make our peach cobbler in a cast iron pot over coals. They can come in handy. Have fun figuring out how to use them!

Wow! I would be thrilled! I use mixes sometimes by themselves. I know..I'm not as 'way more homemade' as you. : ) But I also use them as the base for other recipes. I have a strawberry cake recipe that is To. Die. For. and it starts with a cake mix! I also had a pecan bar recipe recently that starts with a mix. Oh. My. Gosh! It was good. Have fun baking! : )

Congratulations!!! was "fragile" printed on the outside of the box? LOL

("major award" was a Christmas Story reference, right?)

FINALLY someone commented on the Christmas Story reference. It did not, in fact, have "FRAGILE" (fra-gee-lay) stamped on it. Hubs just now said, "We should have stamped "FRAGILE" on there before he even saw your comment.


Thanks, y'all!
