Gripe fest

It is time for a little gripe fest.

If people would use their blinkers properly, or even use them, we wouldn’t have as many accidents as we do.
I was sitting at a red light waiting for it to turn green. The law letsyouturn right if no one is coming straight. There were two cars coming, and both had their blinkers on to turn.Both slowed down, so I turned. Well, here comes the horn!

Dear “Horn Blower:” I can’t help you decided not to turn at the last minute, or had your blinker on way too long. I guess you wanted to turn three streets from where you should have. Thank you God for protecting me from hitting this lady.

Then, she turns three parking lots after where I thought she would. You can’t turn your blinker on that far in advance people and expect people not to hit you.

There is another thing on my mind: texting and driving. Lord help us.

I pray each time I get into the car for protection because of this. I can’t say I have never read a text while driving, but I do my best to not do it. I won’t answer until I park.

Texting and driving is really bad on the interstate. I have even tried to get people’s attention by shaking my finger “Nno” at them, but they don’t even look up.

Sometimes, I have tried to get my husband to beep the horn to scare them a bit, but he refuses to do so.
From what I have noticed, young people seem to text and drive more than others. I suppose they think they are invincible and nothing will ever happen to them.

Please think twice before you do consider texting while driving.Nothing may happen to you, but you could hurt or kill someone else. You don’t want to live with that the rest of your life.

This recipe is one of my friends’ all time-favorites. Enjoy

Ooey Gooey Butter Cake
Cake1 pkg yellow cake mix
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 stick butter (1/2 cup, 113g), melted
1 eight ounce package cream cheese, room temperature
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), melted
4 c powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine cake mix, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla and melted butter. Mash together with a fork until all ingredients are fully incorporated.

Spray 9-inch by 13-inch 9×13 pan with baking spray.

Press cake mixture into bottom of prepared pan and get as flat as possible.

Place cream cheese, remaining eggs, vanilla and melted butter in stand mixer and beat on medium speed until creamy.
Add in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time (and on low speed) until all sugar has been added.

Pour cream cheese mixture over cake mixture.

Bake for 35-45 minutes. I moved mine from the oven when the edges were brown, but the center was still a bit giggly. You do not want to over cook.
Allow to cool before serving.
