White Texas Sheet Cake

We were out at the Longhorn Auction today and it was a great time! If you've never been out to the Wildlife Refuge for that event, you need to go check it out! If you missed it and want to go, the Buffalo Auction will be out at the Refuge in October, and again the Chamber will be selling flame-cooked burger lunches. We had some rain this morning, but after it quit it was perfect weather to be outside.

My Thursday recipe to try from my clippings box is for White Texas Sheet honor of the Longhorn steers!
