Teaser Tell All & Shopping!

Standard

Hello Class!   Welcome Back!

HELLO CLASS!!!!

HELLO CLASS!!!!

What a great Teaser huh?   We sure did get a lot of SUPER DUPER guesses but of course only ONE of those could be RIGHT and we’ll tell you WHO that is in just a bit……..first though I must say that dear SuzieQ has been called back to Rehab – Even Grizelda had to admit that they hadn’t done a good job with Suzie’s “ATTITUDE”……….I told them that she had a long way to go and if they thought they could give her the 24-hour rehab experience they were sadly mistaken.    She’s now in a strait-jacket different program at the facility – and no it doesn’t involve electro-shock threrapy although that MIGHT have been wise but instead she will be shown the error of her ways and they will TEST her before dumping her back here she’ll be allowed to come back to us here.

I am confident Suzie will do just fine!   Aren’t you?    We all love Suzie – she’s a bit unpredictable but she’s fun……..in a warped sort of way!

So lets get to the reason we’re gathered here today in class – let’s see who won what AND most of all – where was that photo taken and who was our GUEST TEASER??????

Here’s the photo again to refresh your memory!

  1. Good morning, Sammy! Well, Motor Mommy is kicking herself this morning. She’s been to Catalina THREE times! And she still didn’t realize that was the Teaser. Humans!!!
    Anyway, she thinks that Eclair cake sounds (and looks!) yummy, so she printed the recipe. Since it requires no cooking, she MAY be able to pull it off.
    Love, Sundae

    • I thought FOR SURE your Mom would know yesterday’s Teaser but I imagine that even if you’ve been there, there may be a camera shot or two that’s not familiar – depends where on the island she visited!! Anyway, glad she thinks she might like to try that éclair cake………all I can say is Mom loves it – and it’s truly easy – she uses the instant pudding which makes it even EASIER!

      Love, Sammy

  3. I would have been very wrong had I guessed. I wanted to say Sicily. I heard Momma say she had not made that same cake in 10 years. Last time she made it was (long before she retired) at work. Well, she took it to work…and it lasted like half an hour.

    • I can imagine it wouldn’t last long at an office that’s for sure!!!! One of those easy peasy recipes though….. On the Teaser, lots of people thought it might be somewhere in Italy so you would have been in “good” company!!!!

      Hugs, Sammy

      • The ice cream AND the the eclair cake would be even MORE MORE better-er! When my Mom was alive we made homemade ice cream for her birthday which was in July and also made it on the 4th… she loved it 🙂 Blueberry/strawberry ice cream sounds too good for words. If we weren’t going to St. Lou to celebrate The Mama’s birthday we would head your way for ice cream… 😀

        • Oh yes – homemade ice cream and éclair cake – what a combination THAT would be! Maybe Mom should do that for the 4th. We hope that you have a wonderful trip to St. Lou to celebrate The Mama’s birthday and have some yummy foodables (maybe cheeseburgers?????) too. Mom is going to WalMart today to get her ice cream machine……WOOT!

          Love, Sammy

  4. Congratulations to Chatty Cats and all 4 of the first commenters! Please get Suzie back from rehab, she is perfect the way she is, I don’t usually like cheerleaders, but she is great. That recipe looks very easy and tasty too, thanks for sharing. XO

  5. Thanks for using my photo, Sammy! That was so fun seeing all the guesses! And I love easy peasy desserts, especially no-bake ones. I will tuck this one away for future baking! (Or, no-baking, I guess.)

  6. Snorts with piggy laughter. Earth still stands strong for me. I hadn’t a clue!! And let me tell you cousin – it’s so funny that your mom posted this eclair delish. My mom/dad recently had some of this at a local restaurant and let’s just say that mom was licking her plate. Now she knows how to make it – rolls piggy eyes – here comes all that way she’s recently lost – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    • Your Mom is DETERMINED on the diet so making this and having some isn’t gonna set her back at all – she’ll just walk a bit more and that’s that! This is too good not to make once in a while (and I like vanilla pudding).

  7. haha MOL, Suzie sure has her problems but she adds that extra something to the blog. We won’t try to guess what that something is but she sure does add it. A hearty concats to the early dog(Easy) and cats with the 1st. guess. We were still pounding the pillows. Speedy you were awesome with the first right guess…yay! We have some winners here. Rachel of Three Chatty Cats that was a great picture….kinda fooled us until we saw the cabin cruisers.

  10. Concats to Speedy and the first commentators! We are late today because our internet keeps going down and only came back half an hour ago. Mum has signed up with a new provider and is going to fibre broadband. They say we should get a minimum of 50mbps which is a huge improvement on the 1mbps we get now. Changeover date is July 15th so if we disappear for a while you know we had a problem!

  11. We are super happy to be first, even if it was a four-way tie. Even though Mom grew up in CA, she’d never been to Catalina Island. Have you sent SuzieQ back to rehab? We see she is missing again today. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

    • The cake is EASY PEASY and delish at the same time – a good combo! As for the Teaser – yes it would seem people are STANDING BY when the Teaser is posted…….four in the first minute is pretty darn competitive!
