woo hoo....PARTY TIME

I'm having 11 of my sweet friends over for our monthly 
BUNCO game the 2nd week of November
and I LOVE getting my baking done early
and into the freezer.

I had the walnuts from our trip to see a grandson in Oregon last year....

and Oregon Walnuts
are THE BEST....
but NEVER as good as

I'd sure rather have DREW here with me instead of this ole bag of walnuts....:(

I have no idea why I love this picture.... went into the freezer to be taken out the day before the ladies come
and a Banana Glaze will be drizzled all over the top.....
with fresh banana slices on the side. 
Do you know about using FRUIT FRESH on any fruits that might turn brown...
I always use it with fabulous success.
 I wanted another dessert and was watching 
Trish Yearwood's Southern Cooking tv show 
and she was making a 
o honey
That sounds like something us Bunco Playing Ladies would LUV.

Of COURSE I had to make something CHOCOLATE for my friends....
I mean...isn't in a female's DNA to LUV CHOCOLATE...???

 OOO......lookin' GOOOOD....

Not a grandbaby around to lick the bowl...
and Mr. Sweet has a cold and isn't one bit interested....
what's a girl to do but
get the job done.....

 make EVERYthing prettier....

Bundt cakes are so pretty to me.
There's some really fancy bundt pans at Williams-Sonoma
that MIGHT go on my Christmas List...:)

This cake will also go into the freezer....
