Kids Enjoying the Summer

In spite of the heat, kids know how to have fun!


The Scorching Heat Continues

Today will be the 10th day in a row with triple digit temperatures. There may be a tiny bit of relief around the corner. James Spann says:

"We will slowly back the afternoon high temperature forecasts down in coming days. Slowly is the important word; you sure won’t be needing any jackets or sweaters anytime soon. Dewpoints will also be rising, meaning the air won’t heat as effectively, but on the other hand it means higher humidity and heat index levels."

Easy Buttercream Frosting

Always start with fresh ingredients. This frosting is very easy to make and tastes so much better than a frosting that comes in a can or is made from a box mix.

Cream together:

1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening (Crisco)
1/2 cup butter

Gradually add:

1 tsp vanilla
4 cups sifted confectioners sugar (1 lb box)
2 tablespoons milk

To thin - use 3 to 4 tablespoons light corn syrup

For white frosting, use clear vanilla

For chocolate frosting, add 3/4 cup unsweetened cocoa & 1 - 2 tablespoons milk to the frosting. Ghirardelli is the best and it is not processed with alkali.

The frosting will keep in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
