I just love the weekends

I got up early this morning and hit a few garage sales. Didn't find a whole lot but one thing I found was a vintage magazine rack for $1.00!! It is so cool. I'm going to sand it down and paint it white. It will go up in my scraproom to hold magazines that I want to hang on to.
I still haven't gotten my buffet delivered so I can start on that. But robin and I have both been super busy working on our gardens and planting flowers. I think I'm done with that for now. All I have to do now is water and weed.
I haven't done any scrapping to speak of other than a few cards. I have 5 or 6 to make for Robin. Maybe I'll do that later tonight.
That's about it from Kansas.

Margarita Cake

I found this recipe on another blog and I don't want to lose it so I am posting it here.

1 box yellow cake mix
1 1/4 cups bottled nonalcoholic margarita mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon grated lime peel
3 egg whites
1 container (8 oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed or homemade butter cream frosting with lime juice added
Additional grated lime peel, if desired

1. Heat oven to 350°F (or 325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Grease bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with shortening and lightly flour (or spray bottom with baking spray with flour).
2. In large bowl, beat cake mix, margarita mix, oil, 1 tablespoon lime peel and the egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
3. Bake 35 to 40 minutes or until light golden brown and top springs back when touched lightly in center. Cool completely, about 2 hours. Frost with whipped topping or icing; sprinkle with additional lime peel. Store covered in refrigerator.
