Estonia Night

Last Saturday we celebrated fellowship with Estonia Night.  Kaidi shared her homeland of Estonia through food, lecture and folk dances.  We had so much fun and had over 80 in attendance, the young and the not so young.

Estonian Potato Salad on Black Bread








Estonian soup




Kaidi gave an interesting lecture.



And then we danced traditional Estonian dances!

Lemon Cake


LEMON CAKE, Sue Ferguson, submitted by Vi Schick

When Rene or the Gutshalls bring in lemons to share, try this popular cake!

1 box yellow cake mix
3/4  cup vegetable oil
3/4  cup water
3 oz. package lemon jello
4 eggs

-Mix for 4 minutes.  Grease bottom of a 9x13" pan--cooking spray is okay.
-Bake for 35-45 minutes (longer than what it says on the box) at 350 degrees.
-Test the cake in about 35 minutes as it may be done.  This should be a little more done than the usual cake as when the liquid topping is added it may fall apart when you cut it.

TOPPING
When cake is done, poke holes in HOT cake.  Mix 2 cups of powdered sugar, 3 Tbls. butter and the juice of 2 large lemons, along with it's chopped zest.  Pour over cake and cool.  Dust with powdered sugar.
