The boys had an amazing time while I was away, and spend most of it with their Auntie Sylvia and cousin Kara in Williams Lake.
I'll be posting some more of their photos as soon as I can get a bit more organized. (I desperately need a clone!) This time they are staying with a friend in Tatla Lake and going to visit their Grandpa Eric as well. They are a bit sad that I am leaving again so soon (hard on a momma's heart!) but are taking it well and looking forward to our school shopping trip when I get back.
I'm still working on my 'food packing' post, but meanwhile I thought I'd follow through with a request for a favorite dessert recipe.
This is delicious and hardy and freezes very well.
3 cups raisins (can include dates)
4 tsp soda
3 cups boiling water
Mix together and allow to soak for one hour.
Add 2 tbsp oil
1 tsp vanilla
Stir or sift together
4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp allspice
Add to wet mixture. Mix well and divide into 3 tall, well greased and floured 1# coffee tins, or bread pans. Bake for 1 1/2 hours 325 degrees.
So cheers everyone, and all the best for the next week!
