In My Kitchen

We got to pick the littlest grand up from school this afternoon as his mom wasn't able to. I love how excited he is and how he runs towards us. He is so dear to us.
When we got back I decided to get busy in the kitchen. I made 3 jars of Blueberry jam.....

roasted some chick peas ( I confess I've already munched my way through a good third of them)

                     and made an Angel Food cake from a mix.

I am posting this picture for Henny Penny who has in the past wished she could bake like me.  Now you see what can happen because when I tried to turn it upside down ( as per directions on the box) the entire top fell off!!   Good thing this cake wasn't made for any special occasion .

With the oven nicely preheated I'll put supper in and my work for this day will be about done.

What did you do today?

  1. I've had those cake catastrophes, too! I walked, wrote a letter, read, and now I'm cooking dinner. Yum! Jam!

  2. Oh my goodness, you sure do make delicious things in your kitchen. I smiled at your honesty. I suppose if we are all being truthful we have encountered similar experiences.
    For the first time ever I cooked garbanzo beans this week. Usually I just buy the canned ones. I now have them in the freezer for future use. I have never roasted them before. They looks yummy and I am now thinking that may need to be the next thing I try.

  3. I have done very little today. After a full 10 hours at the garden show yesterday, and a poor night's sleep, I have been sedentary, sorting and editing photos, reading political editorials, and having lunch out with retired teacher friends.

  4. I had a busy day most of it spent at the clinic...some days. My Mother used to make a concoction of angle food cake and jello and whipped cream it was real pretty layered in a glass dish:)

  5. We did some more de-cluttering and then quickly took it down to the thrift store before we changed our minds! Then went for a long walk in the sunshine.
    Too bad about your cake.
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Thanks for your comment on my blog. You seem a busy lady - but I am encouraged that other people's cakes go wrong too!
