Texas Tech Cupcakes

I hope to post more pictures from Ryan's Graduation Party. Here are the cupcakes before I placed them on the tiered cake plates.
These were done by a bakery in Forney. You can barely see it, but the cupcakes are black/white.

My First Soiree - circa 1987

Isn't this classy? Everything was matching red plastic. I do not remember the menu, but keep in mind that this was definitely a party on a budget. I think I made like $8.00 a hour - that was good money for a 22 year old.
Remember when we didn't have to use area codes?


Check me out in my over sized black shirt and red sweater skirt. I think I was actually thin but you can't tell with that outfit.

Rachael Ray's Cheesy Corn Bites

http://www.rachaelraymag.com/recipes/rachael-ray-magazine-recipe-index/appetizer-starter-recipes/Cheesy-Corn-Bites

I made this recipe for Memorial Day. I placed a jalapeno slice on each one using jalapenos in a jar. Next time I make them I might add cumin and cayenne pepper for an added kick. They were a big hit, and gone almost instantly, so I recommend using more than one bag of Tostito Scoops.

Where's a Safety Pin when you need it?

At Northpark Mall in Dallas
I took this picture from Northpark AMC Theater window. I've been there many times, and never noticed it. So, time for a lesson in arts and culture:
This is called the Corridor Pin Blue by Claes Oldenburg and Coosjie van Brugger.
Please click on the link below for further details on how it ended up in Dallas.
