I've been a good wifey...

Lately, it seems that all I have been doing is being a wifey.
I've been cooking, cleaning & looking after the baby, and hey, I've even been wearing a skirt!  I think I just need to find some curlers and pop them into my hair at bed time and I'll be set!! bad pun intended..

I've been missing crafting, really missing it....

On the plus side though, I have been creative in other ways.
I've found new dances & songs to amuse bubba with, I've even taken him to his very first playgroup and even just signed him up for daycare, 1 day per week!
I've also been cooking up a storm in the kitchen - not always using recipes either!
I've been making savoury dishes for hubbys work lunches, lots of cake to cut up & pop in the freezer along with the work lunches.

Chicken Noodle Soup
Fruit Mince Pies
Bread & Butter Pudding
Lil apple sponges
I've also been preserving apricots & nectarines, we've bottled them, we've made jam & we've stewed some too.   Have you ever bottle fruit, got any tips???  ..Can you use jam jars in the preserver???   
More importantly, back to cake... do you have any good cake recipes, you know the every day kind like chocolate cake or vanilla cake that don't need any fancy shmancy ingredients, the type for lunch boxes??
