146.2...Lemon Supreme Pound Cake

My mom’s very favorite cake is Lemon Supreme Pound Cake. I think the recipe comes from the back of the Duncan Hines Lemon Supreme Deluxe Cake mix. She was coming into town this weekend so I made it for her. If you love lemon, you’ll love this cake.

Friday night we went to Alicia’s for dinner. She ordered Leucadia Pizza and I brought a salad.

My mom, brother, sister in law and nephew came into town to celebrate Easter with us. We went to our club for their Easter carnival. They had a great buffet!

I didn’t want to ruin my appetite for our brunch at Poseidon. We shared the Poseidon Wings which were quite good!

I ordered the Grilled Mahi-Mahi Fish Tacos with Cole Slaw:

They were good! They also had Cholula hot sauce so I was a happy camper. 

After lunch, my brother and his family went home. My mom stayed for one more night. We took her to Benihana for dinner. My meal came with their onion soup and salad.

After I took the kids to school, I went to Hardline class at the gym. Then I ran some errands, including some stops at Fashion Valley Mall. Of course, I had to stop at Blue Smoke Sushi Lounge for lunch.

Miso soup:

Tuna and salmon sushi and a Red Dragon Roll:
