Pound Cake, Patience, Tolerance, Perseverance, & Resiliency
Thank you for joining Table Talk with Lawanna sponsored by Progressing through Therapy, www.progressingthroughtherapy.com.
In this segment, I will provide how baking a pound cake aided me in developing valuable character traits and values; specifically, patience, tolerance, perseverance, and resiliency.
Baking a pound cake is one of the best things that I have produced in my lifetime, so far.
I began with a recipe outline not a recipe provided by my grandmother and mother - a recipe outline, not a detailed recipe - an outline.
• One pound of butter
• One pound of sugar
• One pound of eggs
• One pound of flour
• and if you feel bold add some flavoring.
• Pre-heat the oven to 300 to 375 degrees
• Do not forget to prepare the right pan – coat the sides of your pan and flour ensuring all the edges are covered.
I assembled all the required ingredients. Not the most expensive ingredients but the ingredients that fit into my grocery budget.
Notice the outline does not state what kind of butter, what kind of sugar, the type of flour, and does not indicate what size for the eggs as well as the outline did not indicate a specific temperature for the oven.
Keep in mind I was given an outline not a recipe.
Did I mention that it was written on the back of an envelope?
The journey begins…
I developed patience by allowing the butter to settle to room temperature, soft but not melting, as well as allowing the eggs to…
I made Unstuffed Stuffed Bell Peppers on Saturday for the first time. When I share a recipe, I usually cook it more than once just to make sure I have the ingredients correct and my family approves of the recipe. I don’t take pictures during the first run because I don’t want to create a picture and everyone not love the food enough for me to share it. Something told me to grab the camera and take pictures even after I put everything in the pan. I’m glad I did because this recipe is fantastic!…

Most of the ingredients for this recipe came from Jewel grocery stores and ranged in price from $2.79 for both the beef ramen and the cheesy rice to the pre-cooked meat at $3.99. The jalapeños and hot sauce…

After doing this, you can then begin your third layer of the dish. Heat a pan on the stove to about a medium heat. Add a pound of raw hamburger to the pan to cook. As grease begins to excrete from the meat be sure to watch for popping. As the hamburger begins to get tougher and brown, start chopping it with your spatula to make it into a grounded meat. When it becomes more firm and less gushy and raw, remove the pan from the heated burner. Allow the meat to cool for a couple of minutes and then…
