Dessert - after the feast

Today is January the 7th - Christmas is officially over as the Maji rounded out their visit to the Christ Child.  The Epiphany Feast that I wrote about here was enjoyed by all.  The menu changed slightly though - it turned into more of a Southern Feast after I started a big pot of crock-pot beans yesterday.  Laura, Chris and Jake joined us at our table with Country Fried Steak, baked sweet potatoes, pinto beans and cornbread.

Jake said a sweet prayer before our meal thanking God for His many blessings and asking His comfort for Nadir and her family.  Nadir is our daughter's exchange student from Spain that I pictured in this post.  Her mother lost her long battle with cancer on Wednesday and Nadir will be flying back home to be with her family for a few days.  Poor baby - she's only sixteen and her mother has had cancer since Nadir was ten years old.  My heart goes out to her!

We did top off our delicious feast last night with dessert - Key Lime Cake!  Here you go!  Have a slice.....


  1. My heart goes out to Nadir. It is so very young to lose your mum, but at least she is at peace now, especially as she has been suffering for many years. Such a sad world, sometimes. Your Key Lime Pie looks delish! Glad you enjoyed your meal.

  2. Oh, how wonderful to know Nadir is having nice time with your family!
    I'd have loved to have the Key Lime Cake with you if I could, haha. Looks SO yummy♬♬♬
    Blessing to you, xoxo Miyako*

  3. I feel so grateful Nadir had you there when she needed you. Blessings and love to her and her family! What a delicious looking cake...perhaps you'll post the recipe?


I love to hear your comments!
