Testing …


The new kitchen isn’t done yet, but the oven’s working, and I got to test drive it today. H recently made some wistful remarks about pineapple-upside-down cake, so that’s what I made. I think it tasted nearly as good as it looks – 1 can of pineapple slices + 1 yellow cake mix = 2 cakes, so in addition to the one we mostly destroyed today, I’ve got one for after church tomorrow.

Test run.

The phlox is simply beautiful this spring – I’ve been careful not to mow that area until it’s had plenty of time to go to seed and the patch is expanding nicely.

The phield of phlox again.
