nanas dirt cake (2)
nana usually makes this in a plastic flower pot. obviously purchased for this occasion. if you decide to use a flower pot, make sure you put a piece of tinfoil to clog up the little water hole at the bottom. this can be made in any type of serving dish. i prefer a clear glass one so all can see the layers. the last time i made it i used a trifle dish.

the recipe says to refrigerate for at least 2 hours…dirt cake always tastes best when eaten the next day.
the longer it sits, the better it gets!

if you decide to make dirt cake, which you should!!!, send me a pic and let me know how it goes!

lately on instagram...
it is most certainly puppy love ❤ just be here with me. 
signed: the moon. the stars. your still-hot-cup-of-coffee. your daughter. your son. your spouse. your heart. the green grass. the wild flowers. the waters you long to swim in. the color yellow. the color blue. your favorite poem. your favorite blanket. the wind in your hair. the waves on the ocean. the mountain air. your dad. your mom. the rain. the ice-cream cone. the butter sizzling with garlic in the frying pan. the grocery clerk with the sad, kind eyes. postcards waiting to be sent. the city squirrel. the county squirrel. jupiter. the photo album. your grandma's rosary. your favorite song. ink and paper. your best friend. the money in your wallet. the fork in your hand. brushes and paint. downward facing dog. the color turquoise. the almost invisible shade of pink. god. the skyline. the earth beneath your feet. a hammock. the shade of a giant tree. this moment, right here, now. your bones. your belly laugh. your breath. your breath. your breath. (quote from pinterest) a short list of things i love: america, cocktails, red lips, my chalkboard, grilled food but most importantly long weekends spent with my loved ones. happy birthday america! thanks for giving us the day off to celebrate 🍻
