A to Z Mondays
.....the ingestable stuff


Brought to you by the letter G....


as in Gumdrops.

Once again, Grandma J is getting her entry posted just under the wire.


Today has been a day of thunder, lightning, flooding and tornado warnings here in Central Texas.  None of these things have stopped Grandma J from taking her life in her hands  getting on the internet in the past.....but today Time Warner chickened out and cut service.  OK, they said they weren't responsible for the outage, they said it was Mother Nature....yeah right.




Either way, someone flooded Grandma J's yard!

Now, about those Gumdrops!



Besides the regular ones, there are these that just seem to glow....




Here's a cream cheese Gumdrop cake.  Click on the link for the recipe.   Grandma J might make this one day. 

Now I have to hustle on over to see all the other edible G words at A to Z Mondays, hosted by Jen at Unglazed.   Want to join in?  It's never too late....I'm proof of that.

So sorry about your terrible weather. I absolutely love gum drops! Haven't had them in years though. Thanks for the memories Grandma J. Stay safe.

Happy Stormy Monday Grma J
Roll your pants up and you'll be fine.
Now Gumdrops--LOVE'M!
I usually save the sacred ritual of eating them during Christmas. Red and Green! :P

I love gumdrops! I haven't had them for a while, but I do really like them. Sorry to hear you've had bad weather and that your yard is flooded.

Happy Monday to you! :-)

Let us know how that cake turns out. Will PJB and the chicken (whose name escapes me, it's early and I've not had coffee, which should be illegal) be assisting the chef in the kitchen?

Stay dry and safe.

You hate cream cheese. Remember? Every time I see some I think of you : ). And now, if I am getting a bagel with coffee in the morning at Dunkin Donuts I refuse to get cream cheese on it. I am odd like that : )

They look like they have too much sugar and that makes me hyper.
And starts me ranting and raving about Obama!
