I am as stiff as a board this morning and not because of the weather. I was making deviled eggs yesterday and had no mayo. So I went next door to borrow from our son and on the way home I stumped my toe on a low stump and fell flat on my face with my left arm under my chest. However the mayo was unharmed.

I can’t say so about my ribs. I am still as sore as can be. I can’t tell you the number of times that I have fallen and cracked my ribs. They should look like a road map.

I got this recipe from our new friends Sue and Cecil. She even made the cake and brought us two pieces to Walmart. We have met a lot of new friends on our daily walk each morning.
Hope you enjoy the cake.

• 2 cups all purpose flour
• 2 cups granulated sugar
• 2 teaspoons baking soda
• 2 lightly beaten eggs
• 20 ounce can crushed pineapple–including liquid
• 1 cup shredded coconut
• 1 cup chopped walnuts– plus some for garnish.

Stir with a wooden spoon until all ingredients are moist. Spoon into 9x13x2 pan and bake at 325 degrees for 35 or 40 minutes. Check by inserting tooth pick. If it comes out clean, cake is done.

You can use your cream cheese icing. Sue likes the Duncan Hines home style cream cheese icing that comes in a can. It is a lot easier. Don’t forget to sprinkle the top with the extra walnuts.

It was Gooder’n Syrup. Von
