We had us a party

and it was a good one.  Everyone arrived about the same! and they ladened the table with food.  We had a variety of breads, cold meats, two salads, a veggie tray and then dessert!!  A Danish dessert for the great Dane in our family.

I gave Karl his gift a few days before the big day.  He desperately needed a new bird feeder and I had found this one online and could get it at a fairly local store.  Feeder, two bags of bird feed and a new insert for the suet feeder.  The birds, Karl and Misty will be happy.  Misty discovered the birds in the shrubs outside the living-room window so now she is living there!!!

Morgan brought along her handmade gift.  She always has something special for us.

She also made her Grandpa a painting.  Something for his treasure box.

We sat at the table for over 3 hours and I thought we were going to just get out the left-overs and start eating again, but everyone said no they were heading for home.  The birthday fella enjoyed his cake

 as did everyone else.  It is the easiest "cake" to make.  I had it the first time at a Danish friend's house many years ago and over time the recipe has evolved into something of my own.

Danish Apple Cake

4 cups of fine bread crumbs
3 tablespoons of butter
1 teaspoon of sugar

2 jars of Motts Applesauce, unsweetened
2 teaspoons of Splenda
to each jar of applesauce, add one teaspoon of Splenda, stir to blend in. 

In a large skillet, melt the butter and add the bread crumbs and the sugar.  Stir until the crumbs begin to toast lightly.

In a large serving dish, mine is 9 x 11, spread a layer of applesauce.  Then a layer of bread crumbs,

and continue in this way until the pan is full, finishing with the applesauce.

Bake in a 350* oven for about 25 minutes.  Allow to cool.  Top with whipping cream just before serving.  Refrigerate any unused portions.

Now the reason for the Splenda and the unsweetened applesauce is Karl is diabetic.  Our daughter is also having some health issues at the moment too, so we are trying to maintain a healthier diet.

What will tomorrow bring?  hanging sleeve and how I do it.
