Funny Friday, Roughing it the Easy Way

Today’s post is March’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Husband to wife: Anything else you want to take along, plenty of room.

2. Wife to husband: NOOOOO. I said we have to take the other car!

3. Husband to wife: This is not what I had in mind when I said I wanted a vacation out in nature.
Wife to husband: But you have to admit that the bathroom facilities are much better here . . .

4. Wife to husband: What do you mean this isn’t a rustic vacation, look over there to the left, I think I see a cougar.

5. Wife to husband: Lesson learned. That’s the last time I say that you can buy whatever you want as long as you can get it home with us.

And now for something yummy:

1 1/2 stick butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 cups milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
¼ cup powdered French Vanilla Creamer
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
Ingredients, frosting:
2 cups heavy cream
1/3 cup powdered sugar
2 ounces of fresh raspberries (about 6 good sized berries)

½ tsp raspberry extract
*Grease a 9 X 13 baking pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Cream the butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, milk and vanilla.
*Starting at your lowest speed beat in the flour, creamer, salt and baking powder just until incorporated, then increase speed to medium and beat for 2 minutes.
*Pour evenly into prepared pan.
*Bake for approximately 35 minutes or until the edges start to brown and the center springs back to the touch.
*Cool completely.
*Mash the fresh raspberries, raspberry jam and raspberry extract together. Push through a fine sieve and discard seeds.
*Beat the heavy cream until it starts to thicken. Add the powdered sugar and raspberry mixture and beat until stiff peaks hold. Spread over the cooled cake. Store in refrigerator.


  1. #5 sounds like my family :)
    I've never heard of using creamer in cake before. Oh, the possibilities!
    Happy Friday, K <3

    1. I hadn't heard of using creamer in cake before either. Then I tried it!

  2. Buy whatever you want as long as you can get it home with us... Haha, I have to try this! :-)
    Have a great weekend. :-)
    PS: Look out for those cougars!

    1. Yes, the question is, which kind of cougar was spotted?

  3. Bwahahaha! Soo funny! Love the picture! I would add: 'Real men do it in one trip'!

  4. I am going to make this for Easter! It sounds perfect and I love anything flavored French Vanilla!

    1. Loved yours too. This was a really fun picture to caption.

  10. I was actually looking for my hubby in the picture because this sure looked like one of his packing jobs!

    1. Ba ha ha ha. Next time he goes somewhere you should take a pic.

  11. OMG. Number 5!! It's the only way he'll learn, I guess. :)

  12. I pack ahead of time and then at the last minute I run around the house frantically throwing things in grocery bags. The car starts to look like this before we leave!

    1. I do the exact same thing. I'm always in a panic at the last minute that there might be something I forgot that we're going to end up needing.
