A month has passed since my first blog. Since then I have met many special people here on AR who make you laugh-like Maui Girl, RoboGrandma, Gderr, and Terry. I shared a virtual margarita with Zeebee.
I learned so much from Baking Nana, King Sparta, Mother Ann, Cover Girl, Pam, SuperStarr and Apple Streudel. Thank you all for making a new blogger welcome.
Lela's Mix-a-lot Cooking Episode:
I decided to make the rolls the day before Thanksgiving since that day is so hectic. I baked up 72 rolls-that’s 6 dozen for you math wizards. I mixed a lot. The rolls came out fluffy and soft. (What I do like about my Grandma’s
rolls is they do stay soft days later.) I felt as proud as a peacock, and of course I had to take some photos. While the last batch of rolls were baking, I also was making a Tuna Noodle Casserole-you know the kind with the cream of mushroom soup.
(Except I use cream of chicken soup or in this particular case- cream of celery soup since I am allergic to mushrooms.) I served the tuna noodle casserole to my family. We all dug in and about half way through the meal my daughter blurted, “Where’s
the tuna?” Oops, I was so wrapped up in baking and taking photos that I forgot to put the tuna in the casserole.
Well after we all laughed and my face turned red, I felt like I Love Lucy. I got myself into another predicament. So just call me Lela Miss Mix-A-Lot! (By the way, my favorite "I Love Lucy" episode is the Chocolate Factory.)
The next day, during our Family Thanksgiving meal, my husband had to tell about my Tuna less Tuna Episode. I had to take a lot of ribbing and laughing of course ensued. On the other hand, our Thanksgiving meal was delicious and the only mishap
that day was my Tuna story.

Since then I did make Mother Ann’s –Twania’s Cobbler.- an apple version. It was very flaky and delicious. The whole time I was making it I was wondering if I had made it right. I have to say, my husband ate most of it because it reminded him of his Grandma’s
special cobbler. I also posted my first review and one on the cobbler. Mother Ann, with your permission I would like to post my photo if that’s okay.

Rolls again made in dinner rolls and baked on a large cookie sheet.
