“What are you making NOW?” asks the little before-school grandson. Outdoors it is still dark, and quite chilly, but the kitchen is warm and cozy due to the oven being on.
” A cake” I answer. “What FOR?” he asks. I just roll my eyes and remind him that the first question when he arrives after school is what is his snack that day!
A few mornings ago my second round of pumpkin pies was going into the oven. I made leaves with the dough scraps…the grandson’s is the happy face. I posted about apple & pumpkin pies last week and not long before that, I had made some peach-apple cobbler.
I rarely bake anything in the summer and then when the cooler weather arrives I go berserk for awhile. I send most of it home with my kids, then I am sorry that I did not leave more for myself and so I bake more. And that cake ? Most it went elsewhere too :)
It’s been dreary, chilly and rainy here for the most part. In the kitchen is a new round of flowers picked the other day when I was certain that we’d have a heavy morning frost.
We did not after all.
If the oven isn’t going the stovetop is. I am on a roll. It’s the weather….:)
