any excuse to eat cake
In case you've been keeping track, I turned 46 today. And not a moment too soon - 45 was getting pretty old. I was ready for a change. To take my mind off of being so very ancient, I made cake. Lots of cake. Which will be eaten by eager family members later on this evening after a simple barbeque on the deck.
It's a beautiful day, I've been sitting outside in the garden enjoying the weather and contemplating both middle age and my aging middle. I've decided that being fairly well preserved and pleasingly plump is not the worst thing that could happen to a girl.
My morning started with some perfectly lovely roses from my better half
It's too hot for chocolate cake and we're all too flabby to dive into the whipped cream so I went for something fruity. Fruit has vitamins, right? Just for today, we'll pretend that cake is one of the four major food groups.
Lemon Tea Loaf
Rhubarb Matrimonial Squares (as they are called in Western Canada)
Must go now. The mother-in-law will be here any minute bearing gifts. Lucky me.
P.S. The link to the Lemon Tea Loaf recipe was broken. I've fixed it now!
