I am guilty of not taking time to work on the project of getting pictures from a Olympus camera to my computer.  I was very tired when I got home from work so I didn't get it done.  I do understand now how to move the picture from the camera to my computer.  I might even have a couple more to add on Wednesday.

Good morning Nancy,
Newsletter looks great today. Can't wait to try the Fried Rice recipe from Janis. I am so proud of all the Nancylanders for voiceing a tribute to Judy in Alaska.

Angela's Apple Dump Cake in Kitchen Aid

1 box yellow cake mix
2 cans apple pie filling
1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 stick cold butter, cut in small chunks

Spray a 9 x 13 inch cake pan with Pam and spread apple pie filling on bottom and sprinkle with cinnamon. In Kitchen Aid, add cake mix, butter and nuts and mix until it is like streusel topping. Be careful not to mix too much as it will form into a clump. Sprinkle over apples and bake in 350 degree oven for about 45 minutes to an hour or until top is brown and nuts are toasted.

By the way, I also feel bad about Judy from Alaska. Her recipes were always great.
