Was it kinda like this?

The Shortcake

I grew up eating lot's of shortcake

Quote:
Strawberry Festival
The Lebanon Strawberry Festival was originated in 1909...The first recipe called for: 28 pounds of sugar, 12 pounds of shortening, 32 pounds of flour, 2 pounds of baking powder, 10 dozen eggs, 5 gallons of milk, 12 ounces of salt and 8 ounces of vanilla. Whipped cream topped strawberries on shortcake...

The recipe now calls for 350 pounds of flour, 27 pounds of baking powder, 325 pounds of sugar, 225 pounds of milk, 125 pounds of shortening, 4 quarts of flavoring, 3 pounds of salt and 196 pounds of eggs. Also 300 gallons of soft ice cream and 3,000 pounds of strawberries. Known as "the world's largest shortcake", it heads the Saturday grand parade and serves 16,000 to 17,000 persons who line up after the parade. The Strawberry Festival is the first full weekend in June.

Marie and I each ate a full shortcake in your honor, our friends shared a single shortcake.
And yes, there was also Strawberry jam, strawberry jelly, and Strawberry preserves in evidence...

Salad was...interesting. Sort of a berry salad on a bed of lettuce. Yogurt dressing, with sesame seeds. Tasted okay, but I'm not sure exactly what it was. Appetiser? Dessert?
Maybe we can get together later, we are planning on a trip to Bob's in High Springs, maybe y'all can tag along, or meet a couple of us there.

This weekend's repair...

If nothing else, Bertha is keeping me busy, and off the streets an out of trouble...
This weekend's installment of "fix my Airstream" concerns regasketing the main door. During one of my conversations with Inland Andy, I mentioned the main door gasket on Bertha was dried out, and leaking both air and rain. A few days later, a small box appeared on our doorstep from Corona (the town, not the beer). Inside the box was a tube of weatherstrip adhesive (black) and enough gasket material to replace the original (!) door gasket with new stuff. It was a pretty straightforward process, consisting of scraping the old gasket off, cleaning up the area a bit, laying down a bead of cement, peeling off the sticky tape, and pressing the gasket to the door.
We ate dinner (strawberry shortcake for dessert ), and after determining the glue was dry, closed the door. I guess we will find out in the morning if the glue was really dry or not, if it wasn't, you'll see us on CNN getting cut out of our trailer with a big can opener...

Close, it was a lot of smaller shortcakes in several areas of the grounds. All equally good, all equally rich and chock full of sugar...

Terry,

Does your door fit squarly? Did you have to make any adjustments to get it to seal better with the new gasket?

BTW, I went back and picked up the thread on the last 12 months or so and all I can say is WoW you two have been through a lot and still going strong. Our best wishes and prayers.

Eric

The door fits square, but does require more effort to close now that the gasket actually seals.

The adhesive "set" in about 10 minutes, was dry to the touch in a half hour, and was dry as far as I could tell by morning. It was about 75 during the day of repair, with a low of 55.
I also got the gaskets for all the windows, look for an update on that upcoming adventure in a future post...

Yeah, I knowI haen't been on line much lately, but new job as program director for an Alzheimers unit is keeping me jumping. But I love it.

More things I have learned about full timing:
Less clothes means more space
Pantry only hold so much, so shopping more often
Don't tell Terry about broken items as soon as he gets home
It takes about 15 minutes a day for housekeeping
Dirty laundry takes up a lot of room (use garbage can outdoors to store them)
Make sure when you take the garbage for a drive to the dumpster, it's not the dirty clothes (haven't made that mistake yet)
Don't overbuy for the freezer, or you'll be sorry
Microwave convection oven is the way to go, don't need regular oven


More to follow

Marie

Marie! It's so good to hear from you. Wow, Alzheimers Unit program director ~ lots of responsibility there. Congratulations, I'm glad you're enjoying your new position.

I'm making note of all your little full-timing pearls of wisdom for the day when I get to be on the road longer than a week at a time.

They all leak, part 3

Sigh...
I have gotten over the delusion that I have fixed Bertha's leaks. The latest one is a continuation of the old leak around the center Fantastic Fan, so when I go back up on the roof tomorrow, it should be fairly easy to re-re-patch...
The temp in the pantry continues to hold about 5 degrees above room tempurature, whatever that may be at the moment. The fridge is staying about 30 degrees inside, and the freezer is around 0, both plus or minus 2 degrees. There are rumors of a possible change in the living room area, but nothing is for sure right now. As for the freezer, it's tough moving through the kitchen when there is a 2x4 holding the freezer door shut because we overbought frozern food...
