My Mother-in-law brought out a beautiful chocolate bundt cake, decorated with pink frosting and titanium coated packaged sugar decorations.
It looked awful....BUT, since it was what PK asked for, it was what she got.
The cake was tasty when accompanied by a strong cup of joe, the girls just licked the frosting off of their pieces, and we sang several choruses of the HB song, indulging the birthday girl's desire to blow her candles out multiple times.
Eventually, table talk got around to the origin of the cake. Knowing that ready-made bundt cakes are not readilly available even at the get-ready-to-git-n'-go WalMart Supercenter bakery, I haphazardly asked my M-i-L when she found time to bake the bundt.
She smiled, pointed to the freezer and said, "I thawed it out yesterday."
Which leads me to my question for today...
And rather than toss away what couldn't be consumed in a timely fashion, why not freeze the rest, to be enjoyed later...right?
I'm ignorant to such things and when I asked my wife, who is vastly more knowledgeable of such things, it led to a discussion of such things as behaviors which are most definitely of the faux-paux nature here in the Land of the Red Man.
Here are a couple things that my wife has told me are "faux-ho-ho-ho paux" (her phrasing) in the social circles of Oklahoma society.
There are others, oh yes. There are many, many others.
Life can be complicated out here on the prairie.
