A Diner Substitution

Deer Slayer got called away on church business today, and actually I should change his name to Deer Stand Sitter, the Slayer part hasn't happened in quite some time, I know because my freezer is fairly empty. It doesn't get much more organic than that folks. Anyway, I was saying that since he is gone today, our diner outing for Friday was cancelled. I promise you though that I can channel a diner better than anyone I know, so that didn't stop me from having Diner Friday right here at home.

Incidentally the girls were off school today, so we got out the diner cups, of which there is quite a choice I assure you. The girls chopped marshmallows like professional chefs.

I think someone loves marshmallows almost as much as I love diner cups.

This was our main course. A Pumpkin Layer Cake that my friend Nikki inspired me to make. You can check out the recipe on her blog. It's just an inspirational sort of cake don't you think? Very dinerish to. Just imagine a big wedge spinning inside one of those tall, lighted, turntable things just inside the door. I love those things.

Happy long weekend to my teacher readers, I hope you got to sleep in. Call me, I have cake:)


  1. Your cake looks wonderful. Wish I was there to enjoy a taste. I also love your new vase and the flowers.

  2. YUMMY.
