Really Random Thursday, 10/10/13

Snapshots from The Big Fresno Fair:
Bacon-wrapped corndog. So-so...
We are certainly the nation's fruit basket:
Cool art work. There have to be instructions somewhere, right? Pinterest maybe?
 Gorgeous sunset the other night:
I posted a couple pictures last week of Mark in his reffing uniform. Some interesting items that he wears, with funny labels, include his compression shorts,

and his socks.
Someone suggested after posting the picture of these ingredients,
that I should also include the recipe. So here you go:

1 box devil's food cake mix
1 cube real butter, melted
1 egg
1 cup chopped nuts (I always leave these out because Mark doesn't like them)

Mix and spread on bottom of greased 9x13 pan.

2 eggs
8 oz. cream cheese
1 box powdered sugar

Whip until fluffy. Spread on top of cake mix mixture.

Bake 30-40 minutes at 325. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.


No explanation necessary if you are paying attention to baseball.

Let's end with some pumpkin-y goodness, in honor of my favorite season.
I haven't tried this yet.
Toasted whole wheat, pumpkin cream cheese. Oh yeah!
My very favorite pumpkin spice coffee--I bought a pound of beans.
We'll close with these pictures from Dallas, courtesy of our friends, George and Cheri:
  Your turn.

Mmmmm! Those fruits look really yummy. But I'll take the cake, please! Ha, ha! Love the melting crayon pic. Someone entered one of those in our little country fair. They had also put an umbrella shape on the pic and the crayons melted around the umbrella. It was cool. I believe they used a hair dryer to melt the crayons. Thanks for sharing your randomness with us!

I once did a crayon melty thing. I glued them down with Aileen's then melted them with a blow dryer. Worked pretty well. :)

I would be in heaven with access to that much fresh fruit around me all the time. I love that climber on the grassy side of the building.
