Good Things

1. ***The Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities|*** called to offer me a job today. I will soon be working at the Harrison Gray Otis House museum in Boston. Things are moving in the right direction.

2. Aunt Christine’s Strawberry Cake recipe. ***Amy|*** asked for the recipe, and here it is…

qqq|Mix {1 White Cake Mix, 3 Tbs. flour, 1 package Strawberry Jello}

Add {3/4 cup oil, 1/2 cup water, 4 beaten eggs}

Stir in 3/4 cup strawberries (I used a 10 oz bag of frozen strawberries due to the season) Reserve the rest of the strawberries.

Bake at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

ICING- Combine remaining strawberries with 2 cups of confectionary sugar and 1/4 cup melted butter. (I used a hand mixer) (my icing was chunky and strange looking, but was absolutely delicious, don’t fret!)|qqq

    Thank goodness someone finally realized how fantastic you are! I was starting to get discouraged about the blindness of the New England museum community! 🙂

    Huzzah, and congratulations! (I almost wrote “congraduations”. It is that ridiculous time of year again.) Thanks for posting the recipe. I just bought some strawberries today, so I will have to try it out tomorrow or Tuesday. Mmmmm… Strawberry Cake… 🙂
