Time Event
Just in time for the holidays
We cooked German last night for our men's discipleship group, Real Men Cook With Fire. Meatballs and Spätzle, Cucumber Salad with Mustard Dressing, Rye Bread, and an Apple Cake. The Apple Cake was an experiment of mine, which turned out very well -- just wish I'd had some whipped topping ready to apply. Very, very moist cake. Herewith the recipe. Amaze your friends and family.

Easy Apple Cake

3 good-sized apples (I used Fujis, I think)
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 stick butter
2 Tbsp light corn syrup
1 Spice Cake box mix
(cake mix calls for 3 eggs, plus water and vegetable oil)

Peel and slice apples.

Make caramel by melting butter and brown sugar together. When fully melted, take off heat and stir in corn syrup.

Pour caramel in greased 9x13 sheet cake pan. Arrange apple slices to cover the bottom.

Combine cake mix ingredients and beat to make a batter. Pour over apples.

Bake according to box mix insructions, but be patient. The extra liquid in the apples will add to the baking time about 15 minutes. Check frequently with toothpick until you know it's done.

Turn pan over onto large platter and wait a little while for the caramel to drizzle over everything. Remove pan.
The Fog of War is nothing compared to the Smoke and Mirrors in the White House
In the face of accusations that the President left Americans to die in Benghazi last month, he says he ordered that everything possible be done to help our people. How can we know the truth? Simple.

If the President gave an order to the Secretary of Defense or anyone in the military chain of command, that order was passed on to everyone who would need to receive it in order to implement it. It still exists, probably in multiple copies. Produce the order, Mr. President, and all your critics will have to eat crow.

Well, perhaps he didn’t actually give a real order to anyone in the chain of command. Maybe he just told a roomful of staffers what he wanted. Well, guess what. There is a secretary accompanying the POTUS at every occasion when he meets with anybody in the White House. Everyone who enters or leaves the room is noted, and every decision or order is recorded. This is an official record. So, produce the transcript, Mr. President, and everybody will have to shut up about this.

If Obama can’t or won’t produce an order or a meeting transcript supporting his version of events, then he’s lying. Which would mean he left a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans in the service of their country to die at the hands of terrorist scum.

Put up or shut up, Mr. President.
