MY MINIONS

It's Thursday

David bought a new gas can yesterday because the old one sprang a leak. Well, this morning he pulled the lawnmower out of his man shed and was going to fill the tank and the gas can wouldn't pour the gas. He bought a gas can that he doesn't know how to open. 
BWAAAHAHAHAAAHAHAHAHAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAAA!
I'm dying laughing to myself. It's so funny. He spent nearly an hour trying to figure it out. He's now on Youtube trying to figure it out. I'm guessing he will just go and buy an easier can to store gas for the lawnmower. But I have to say I have never seen anything that he has bought from Home Desperate that bested him. You can't make this shit up.
I got bored this morning and wanted to make a Pina Colada cake but no cake mix or cake flour so I found a blogger a while back that makes her own cake flour. Seriously, and when I did it the cake turned out amazing. It was fluffy and moist not like regular recipes that ask for just the flour.
You take the all-purpose flour like the recipe asks for say 1 cup of flour, take 2 tablespoons of the all-purpose flour from it and then add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch. Whisk it a bit then sift it about 5 times and maybe once more for good measure. It's 2 tablespoons of cornstarch per 1 cup all-purpose flour But don't forget to take the 2 tablespoons of flour from it first. I found this idea from here:
https://addapinch.com/how-to-make-cake-flour/ I love this recipe blog. Really great recipes when you need an idea for dinner or dessert. 
David is cussin up a blue streak something awful outside in his man shed so I need to go find out what he's mad about and talk him down from the ledge so to speak. Y'all have a safe magical day.

There's a youtoob video on how to use a Scepter gas can, which I am guessing is the kind your hubby bought. It's a pretty good video and I think will help him keep from pulling his hair out and he can save his cuss words for something more important. Ranee (MN)

That new gas can must have a child-proof safety cap! LOL, I feel his pain. And what a cool tip about making your own cake flour!

think we bought the same gas can last year. It took us forever to figure it out and then we felt like total goobs.
