Another good thing.....almonds are good for your heart so it's a win win. I've heard many people talk about almond milk so I knew I had to try it and I'm really glad I did. I def want to try the chocolate one. I bet it's like drinking a melted Hershey bar with almonds. :) MMMMMM

These containers are lined up along the wall. Most of these items are things I have listed on Craigslist. In the blue container are misc things that I'm unsure what to do with.
Here are some more containers. Again some of these items are listed on Craigslist and waiting to be sold. I also have some milk bottles and blue glass in the purple container that I'm trying to decide what to do with. I might pull out my favorites and then Clist the rest. We'll see.
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup applesauce
1/3 cup egg whites (whites of 2 eggs)
1/3 cup skim milk
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (juice of 1 lemon)
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup confectioners sugar
3 tablespoons lemonade
few drops yellow food coloring (optional)
Preheat oven to 350° and line cupcake pan with liners. Combine first seven cake ingredients in medium bowl. Combine remaining four cake ingredients in smaller bowl and slowly mix into first bowl until smooth.
Pour batter into cupcake cups until about 3/4 full. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Meanwhile, combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
Allow cupcakes to cool completely. Glaze by turning each cupcake upside down and dipping top in glaze. Allow excess to drip off, flip back over and allow glaze to set.
Laura said they kind of taste like a halls lemon lozenge and she was exactly right. I wasn't a fan of the glaze. I liked the cupcakes better with out the glaze. Nate enjoyed them. He ate his without the glaze too. :) Will I make these again? Probably not. :(

Our table all set up and waiting for us. It was cute and we could sit and look at the water and people watch while enjoying our lunch. For appetizers we got crab dip, hush puppies, mozzarella sticks, and chicken wings. I think most of us got house salads before our main dish. I got the flat iron steak. I got it well done and it was perfectly cooked. No pink, and not burned. YEY! I got a baked potato for my side with just butter and the plate had a mixed veggies. (carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and green beans mixed together). Sharon and Joe got prime rib. It was huge!! I've never seen a steak that big. Crystal got a parmesan breaded flounder. The flounder was really big. Everyone's eyes got real big when her plate was set in front of her. LOL Eddie got salmon. Dave and Nate both got baked stuffed flounder and Kristen got the triple decker potomac club. Whew....it was A LOT OF FOOD. And it was all good. No complaints! :)

I also cut up a small onion. In a skillet on medium heat I added some olive oil and added the onion. Then I browned the onion pieces.
After the onions were browned I added the meat. I added black pepper, some parsley flakes, w sauce, some minced garlic and a little bit of season all.

On the ship......This was the Captain's room. Such a tiny space. I love the ticking fabric used for the pillow.
One of the cabins on the ship was for the cook. Inside his room was the stove. I'm sure when that stove is cooking it's hot in there.
I loved the ticking stuffed with straw. Old Order Amish use ticking fabrics stuffed with straw as there mattresses as well. :)
We stopped at Center Street Grill for lunch. Decent prices.
We both got the Philly Roll. It was Philly steak, onions and cheese in an egg roll. And a cheese sauce for dipping.
Then there's a toppings bar. Fruits, candy, cereal, hot fudge....what ever you want....it's there. I put a few rainbow sprinkles b/c I wanted to taste the yogurts to see what I liked best without candy or fruit taking away flavor. I def want to go again (and lucky for me...my town is getting one). Next time I'm getting just chocolate and peanut butter yogurt. MMMMM it will taste amazing! :) Once you load up your bowl you go to the cashier, put on a scale and you pay 39 cents an ounce. I paid $4 for mine. :D
I like this pattern. :) I still have my purple punch Vera bag and I use it everyday. :)
