Place Mason jars in a tall-sided roasting pan or baking dish and fill pan or dish with hot water. First, buy some half-pint (8 oz) canning jars. You can choose whatever type of cake you like (homemade or boxed works a-okay) and fill the mason jars with the batter so they're just over half full. This helps the cakes cook evenly and also will ensure your mason jars won't crack from the heat.

    One of my aunts did this for each of her daughter's weddings. Each guest went home with a cake in a jar, after eating the wedding cake. She always made cinnamon chocolate with homemade fruit preserves on top. Kept her busy and stopped her from driving her daughters nuts. Three daughters, and her two sons got bupkis. (How dare they leave her for another woman! )
    Thanks for the advice. We'll be having a lot of cake.
    Btw, box cakes? Never.
    Lol @ typical JM.

    Some of the box cakes can be very surprising. Especially if you hack them. Use milk and butter, or buttermilk and butter, instead of water and oil, add eggs, make frostings from cream cheese or puddings, whatever. Betty Crocker's orange cake made with OJ instead of water and much less sugar, with instant lemon pudding in the center and on top, yummy. The kids make it disappear.

    I use box mixes and doctor them up. I don't bother with cooking the cakes in mason jars but they are a cute way to serve decadent desserts at a gathering. Bake cupcakes. Slice the cupcakes in half to create two mini layers. The filling ideas between the layers are endless. For example do a take on a cannoli. Bake white cake with mini chocolate chips cupcakes and fill with cannoli filling between the layers and top with whipping cream that had unflavored gelatin (that was allowed to bloom) drizzled into the whipping cream during the beating process. This keeps the whipped cream in a more firm state. Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips or shaved chocolate on top. Do a take on Strawberry Shortcake. Yellow cupcakes, layered with sliced strawberries mixed with Marzetti's strawberry glaze topped with the same whipped cream mentioned above. Lemon cupcakes and blueberries are another good combo. For the chocolate lover, triple chocolate cake mix, chocolate mousse pudding filling topped with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. The combos are endless. They look really pretty in the jars. Screw the lids on and store in the fridge.

    Tonight I fixed meatloaf with the special sauce on top (ketchup). I had some fresh green beans and I cooked them in chicken broth along with potatoes as the side. Hubby thought it was tasty. But I waited for the meatloaf to cool down to eat. I wanted a meatloaf sandwich. Two thin slices of meatloaf on bread with pickles and yellow mustard. It rocked.
    I'll eat the green beans and potatoes for lunch tomorrow. Usually when I cook it's enough for two days but not this meatloaf. Hubby has already hit it again and by lunch tomorrow it will be gone. So what to fix for dinner Friday that will feed us Saturday too. hmmm. Sunday we are visiting with our grandkids and their parents can feed us.

    Yesterday, yet again a glorious rump roast, nice and rare in the center. No sides. Wouldn't want to take up room needed for beef.

    (Coating: oil and smashed garlic mixed, paprika/chili/onion/thyme/rosemary)

    Once finished, we mixed the blood on the plate with the unconsumed cooked juices and took shots of it, mixed with salt.







    Today, leftovers.

    Had my first attempt at making a Monte Cristo. Used Gruyere for the cheese and country ham.

    That wasn't blood on your plate. Just water with a bit of broken down muscle tissue, some lipids. Beef in America is fully bled before butchering.

    In celebration of the NFL, I ordered Pizza Hut (theyre a bargain here at one medium pie for $4, used to be only $3 last year)
