"For I know the plans that I have for you,'declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope." Jeremiah 29:11

Yesterday I had two girlfriends over for lunch and we had such a fun time visiting. I made a hamburger, onion, mushroom, cheddar cheese quiche and served it with a green salad. For dessert I made one of my favorite gluten free cakes-a Magically Moist Almond cake, the recipe is on the back of Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour package. If you like the taste of Almond flavoring, you'll love this cake. It also uses a bit of Coconut Flour and I substitute the Vanilla extract for Almond Extract. If you don't like Almond you might not care for this; it reminds me of Marzipan candy.
I served it with fresh berries as you can see. My friends and I usually go out for lunch, but I may have changed that. The quiche was a big hit and actually made two, so hubby had it for dinner last night and probably lunch today. I was so glad Ruth got a photo of the dessert! After I cleaned up, I had a bit of time downstairs; I still have one more heart to make today. Tomorrow we get another pattern. Right now, I'm heading out to meet another friend and walk with her; if it is too cold outside we will head into the Senior Center and walk their indoor track. I've got a couple of errands to run afterwards; I've got two grands coming over this afternoon for sewing. Hunter is wondering why his momma hasn't been walking him-it is simply to cold.
May your day be blessed! Noreen
