Quick!!! Turn on the oven before it hits 107!!!!!!!!
Yes, ladies and gentlemen. It is supposed to get that hot next week.
Brenna and I got smart and baked before the heat sets in and WITHOUT having to turn on the air conditioning!!
I don't know why the kick for baking lately. Maybe because it's SUPPOSED to be fall. Plus, it's just fun to do together. I wish there were cookbooks with big, easy to read words and numbers. And step by step pictures. With recipes for items other than pizza.
When I have Brenna read a recipe, she honestly can't see it, so she just has to trust me that I'm telling her to put in is the correct amount!
Oooh. That would be another wish. I would make measuring spoons and cups with big, bold letters and numbers. I can barely make out what it says.....
This week we made Lemon Pound Cake.
It's very easy to make, and is delicious!
Sometimes I will put a glaze made out of powdered sugar and lemon juice and add pomegranate seeds on top. This time I left it plain and will add frozen, thawed berries.
Or not. Plain with a good cup of coffee is yummy as well!
I do have to send out a BIG THANK YOU for all your laughs and encouragement over my crazy 24 hours. You never cease to brighten my day. From great ideas like giving the gin to the dog to what goes in must come out, well...let's just say I felt justified in taking pictures of wet, soggy toilet paper and posting said pictures on the blog. You all totally relate!!!!
That said, shall I tell you that the next day, the garage door broke for the 3rd time??
I'll just have another piece of cake.
