        so i'm thinking about chicken breast w/ cr of mushroom soup as gravy,w/diced potatoes and carrots and minced onion and celery. all cooked in the same pan in the oven.
        right now i can smell my chocolate mayonaise cake baking. when it comes out and cools,i will make some boiled frosting(like fudge). yum. i will include the recipe for the cake and the frosting. im also using the same kind of recipe used for the frosting,to make a peanut butter fudge! nick is gonna love his mom tonight! lol i'll also give u the fudge recipe.
        this is my mom's chocolate mayo cake recipe,as well as the frosting and the fudge recipe. mom always made beans,rolls and this cake with this frosting,for special occations and family events. thank you mom,for leaving me all your recipes and pyrex!
