Spring, is that you out there?!? Holy sun, I missed you!
This morning I woke up at my usual 6-ish, had a cup of coffee, a bowl of cereal, and I took off. I was standing in front of the grocery store waiting for them to open at 7 am. I was there to pick up whatever I could find that would remind my kitchen of warmer days.
I saw some apples and pears, but they are not a reminder of warmth – that says cold weather. I also tasted the berries… um, no taste! It was as good as eating one of those plastic fruit arrangements that my grandma used to have as a centerpiece on her kitchen table.
I kept moving along the produce aisle and I laid my eyes on some pineapples. They looked really good – perfect golden color, they were firm, and they had a yummy sweet smell. I put one in my basket, paid for it, and came home just in time before my husband had to leave for work.
He left, Ana ate breakfast, and then the two of us (yeah, she helps in the process of making a bigger mess 🙂 ) got down to business.
You can tell by the lighting on these photos that I made this cake earlier in the morning – it was probably about 8:30 a.m. when I began to separate the eggs. That’s how eager I was to make something spring-ish as soon as possible.
And once Ana went to take her nap, Mama made herself a fresh pot of coffee to enjoy with a piece of this amazing cake! I just wish it was Sunday, my “Eat Whatever The Heck You Want Day”, so I could have a few more slices.
