Eggs and Wishes

Today we'll be talking about a couple of things.  Eggs, and wishes!  Yep!  'Kind of a wacky combination, don't ya think?  ;-)  That's how I roll!

Let's start with the 20 Wishes!  This year, I am co-hosting an exciting monthly link party all about fulfilling wishes.  YOUR WISHES!  Here's how it works.  You throw together a list of things that you have always wanted to do, but never seem to find the time or energy.  How many times a day do you think, "Gee, I wish I had time to _______ "?  OK.  So, put that on your list!  Really, whatever you want!  As the year goes by, you set aside the time to make YOUR WISHES come true!  I know, right?  Publish posts about all the cool things you are accomplishing.  On the last Wednesday of each month, there will be a link party so we can all cheer for each other and celebrate achievements!

Here's my Twenty Wishes 2014 along with my Twenty Wishes 2013!   If you don't get started right away, no worries!  Just join in whenever you like!  The link to the first party is right HERE!  What would you enjoy getting done in 2014?

OK.  Fasten you seatbelt!  We are switching gears!  VROOOOOM...  Moving on to chickens and eggs!  Many of you know we have chickens that hang out in our back yard with our dogs.

We love the sweet hens!  They each have their distinct personalities.  Thanks to these darlings, we have lots of farm fresh back yard eggs!  I am always looking for ways to use them.

Here is a recipe from my delightful friend and mentor, Betty, who got the recipe from her mother!  It is absolutely scrumptious!

Pound Cake (E. Allison)
2 sticks butter *1 cup*
2 cups sugar
2 cups flour, sifted
5 or 6 large eggs
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsps. vanilla
With electric or hand mixer, cream butter and sugar until fluffy; add eggs, beating in one at a time. Gradually add flour and then vanilla; mix well. Bake in a greased and floured bundt pan or two loaf pans at 350° until cake is done. This cake makes a sugar crust.

  1. Now I have two chickens I will have to start making cakes.

  2. Hey stopping by from the Fabulous Friday Link Party, thanks for stopping by and I love this Pound Cake Recipe!

  3. I keep thinking I'll join in on the 20 wishes, but with this reno, I have about 20 wishes a day! Glad to know I can jump in later! Mmmm pound cake sounds delicious. Our favorite way to have eggs is poached in enchilada sauce and served over a tortilla.

  4. I am always looking for ways to use my eggs too. I have a wonderful 10 egg quiche recipe I will link up one of these days. I can't wait to try this pound cake - after I'ver shed a few pounds. (Remember my YPS) It looks like it would be delightful for Easter - maybe by then.

  5. Hi Marci! Great idea about the pound cake! I just made a lemon pound cake yesterday and it is delicious! A great way to use some of the excess eggs. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Have a nice day! Blessings from Bama!

  6. Any recipe that has 6 eggs and a pound of butter has to be delicious. I will definitely try this one! Thanks for linking up with the MaMade Blog Hop!

  7. We want chickens, maybe this will be the year. :)

  8. I love the idea of sharing our 20 wishes linky party!

  9. Hi, I am stopping by from the Four Seasons Blog Hop. I will be sharing your posts.

  10. We always have an abundance of eggs in our home. Not fresh from the chicken as we'd prefer but an abundance nonetheless. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us and for linking it up over at Tell it To Me Tuesday! We hope to see you linking up with us again next week.
