Anyway, his latest is Apples to Apples, Family Edition. And I must admit it is some kind of fun!
This is a very brief synopsis for how to play the game. The "judge" let's everyone pick a card from their hand of five cards to fit a "category" card read by the judge. Then the judge determines who wins the hand. Then the next person gets a chance at being judge.
For example: say your hand has these (red) cards in it:
And the category is "nice" (the green card) :
Which would YOU choose? I don't think I'd choose soccer mom...not in this neighborhood, anyway *giggles*
I was going to bake a lovely apple pie to have for dessert while playing this game, but one of my daughters insisted on making an Apple Dump Cake. I was hoping to bake and post a beautiful pie like Donna's over at one of my favorite blogs, Conghaile Cottage. *sighs* Check out her adorable Apple Pie and Bears post here.
The recipe is so simple, and my daughter learned how to bake it in GA's (Girls in Action) when she was very young.
Here is the recipe:
Apple Dump Cake
2 cans apple pie filling
1 yellow box cake mix
2 sticks of butter
In a 9 X 13" cake pan (ungreased) put in 2 cans of apple pie filling. Dump yellow cake mix on top of pie filling, then slice butter into pats and place evenly on top of cake mix. Place in a preheated 350 degree oven for 50 minutes or longer for desired brownness.
It sound gross, but it actually tastes pretty good, and the girls like to bake it themselves.
There are other editions to this game, and it is probably my favorite of late.
Until next time...
