Just For Fun ~ What it takes to make 15 Gallons of Mama's Slaw

30-32 large heads of Cabbage
5 lbs of Carrots
3 or 4 gallons of Mayonnaise
(Depends on the yield from the cabbage)
1 bottle Lemon Juice
1 bag Sugar
Salt and Pepper
Multiple Coolers and Zip-Loc Bags

3 stations:
Peeling and cutting Carrots and Cabbage
Grinding Carrots and Cabbage
Mixing (Notice that I had to use one of the babies' chairs
 as a stool because the bowl/tote was so big! LOL)

Elliott took the pictures, 
but he was on the Cutting and Peeling Station.
The hubby was grinding and I was mixing.

And, THIS is the look I get 
when I try to tell him how to do something! LOL

Strawberry Cake with Powdered Sugar Glaze!

My house smelled totally AWESOME when this cake was baking! It smelled like sweet, hot strawberries!!!

1 package white cake mix
1 small package strawberry gelatin
1 cup water
1/2 cup oil
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup mashed strawberries

Powdered Sugar
Milk or Water

Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, gelatin powder, water, oil and eggs. Beat on low speed 1 minute or until moistened; beat on medium until well blended. Don't over mix or the cake will be tough. Fold mashed strawberries into cake batter. Pour into greased and floured 9X13 baking pan. Bake 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes. Slowly poke holes in the cake, as many as you want. Remove from pan and place on serving tray.

Mix powdered sugar and water (or milk) to make a glaze. Generously pour over the cake, filling the holes! Cool completely and cut and serve!
