Hey! I am not much of a cook but I just found a recipe in my own handwriting, I must have jotted it down sometime. When I worked as a travel agent, one of my travelers brought me back a Rum Cake from Jamaica and I really liked it.
2 cups confectioner's sugar
5 tablespoons rum
Mix the 2 cups sugar and 5 tablespoons rum together.
With a skewer, punch holes in pound cake. Pour glaze over.
Here's the funny thing, I have never made this. Never bought a bottle of rum in my life and haven't had that rum cake since the nice lady brought that to me from Jamaica back in the 90's! Funny, isn't it? Or is it sad? I can't decide...
I know I am not feeling or looking so great these days but these buzzards are getting too close to me! (Those are really turkey vultures, and you can always recognize them in flight by those wings outstretched at the tips.) We call them buzzards but we don't have buzzards in the USA, they are really vultures and they, like most birds, fascinate me. You may read about them here.
Well, rum and vultures...I think I might be writing myself a country song soon! Stay tuned! In the meantime, I just heard this song by Toby Keith, and I like it. Toby Keith writes a lot of his songs, but I somehow thought that he couldn't have written this one, and I was right, it was written by an excellent songwriter by the name of Chuck Cannon. There's another song that Chuck Cannon wrote that I also like and it is called, "We All Give God The Blues". I have read some criticism of his songs but I also read something that he wrote where he stated that he knows the spirit in which they were written.
Happy Mothering Sunday to my mother-in-law in England and also to anyone else who will be celebrating this tomorrow!
