ummmmm yum!

So, the other day, Aldi had strawberries for .99. I love Aldi's for produce, BTW, when I can't get to the mennonite's out here. ANYWAY, I bought 4 containers. Usually, I will freeze some, but I never had the chance! I found a strawberry cake recipe to make and my family loved it so much that I have made 2 now! I tweaked it a little, but here it is:

1 box white cake mix (I used yellow, because I already had it. I don't think it made a difference)
1 pkg (3oz) strawberry jello
1 c vegetable oil
1/4 c water
4 eggs, lightly beaten (I used 3, and then used 3 T of makes a cake way more moist)
3/4 c mashed strawberries

For the icing:
1/2 c butter
1 lb powdered sugar (I didn't say this cake was GOOD for you)
1/4 c mashed strawberries

Combine the cake mix and jello (powder) in a bowl. Beat in oil, eggs (mayo), water and strawberries. Pour into 2 greased 9 in cake pans. (I used a 13x9 because I'm lazy like that). Bake 350 for 30 minutes (this will take longer if you use a 13x9)

Beat butter and powdered sugar together. Add strawberries, Ice your cake! :)
I added a LITTLE less sugar and a little more strawberries to make it a little thinner and kind of poured it over the cake, then spread it out. It's thicker than a glaze, but a little less thick than traditional icing. My husband likes it that way.

Hope you enjoy it!


I went to Walmart yesterday and had to buy so many stinkin' things for the house that I didn't get in a good coupon shopping trip. I did use a $1.50 coupon on some TGI Fridays appetizers that were $2.48

Also, the Glade Sense and Spray and the Glade Lasting impressions are on rollback for $5. I had a $4 coupon on the Sense and Spray and a $3 coupon on the Lasting Impressions.


I posted this on my fan page yesterday, but take your travel mug to Starbucks today for free coffee!!
