This is just to say

. . .we made it home safely. The boys were really good on the flight. They both slept most of the way which made the flight seem really short. This is a picture from before Gio cut his mohawk. And now the purpose of the post--I wanted to post Gma Day's carrot cake recipe for everyone to have. Here it is.

Grandma Day’s Carrot Cake

1 ½ c. vegetable oil
2 c. sugar
3 eggs
3 c. grated carrots
1 c. drained crushed pineapple
1 t. vanilla
2 ½ c. flour
1 t. baking soda
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. nutmeg
1 t. salt
1 c. chopped nuts
1 c. coconut (if desired)

Cream oil, sugar, and beaten eggs. Add pineapple and carrot. Add sifted dry ingredients, vanilla, nuts, and coconut. Bake in greased floured cake pan 45 minutes at 350 F. Check with toothpick to see if done.
