Lazy Engineer....that cake is a thing of beauty. Looks delish!

RR, I think I'd spread that cream cheese/sugar mix on some toast - yum. I remember you saying you don't use much bread though....at least I think it was you.

I don't, and I also don't have a toaster. My way of making toast involves putting bread under a broiler, waiting forever for it to turn brown, and then walking away just as it starts burning.

I had a bowl of fresh pineapple. I had bought a 'golden' pineapple, they're supposed to be sweeter. Carved it up and sectioned it. Boy, it's about as sweet as I've ever had.

I gave my grandson a piece and, based on the face he made, you would have thought I was trying to poison him. Oh well, MFM.

One of my favourite desserts is slices of fresh pineapple soaked in vodka.

I suffer with heartburn and the vodka seems to remove the acidity.

Method

- slice the fresh pineapple and arrange the slices in a flat dish.
- pour the vodka over thepineapple
- top each slice with mixed berries
- cover with cling film and refidgerate for a min of 12 hours

The mixed berries should bleed into the centre of the pineapple rings and looks really pretty! I use blackberries I grew in my garden and then froze for occasions such as these.

I made a chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache frosting. That and some ice cream will be dessert today to celebrate by eldest's birthday.

CAKE!
I LOVE cake, any sort really!
As we are in a rental for the foreseeable 3-6 months ARRRGGGH!
where there is NO BAKING equipment what so ever, and DH has forbidden me from purchasing any, I feel it will ONLY be Ice Cream from the supermarket and commercial baked goods.
HMMM,
there's always Costco...

GG, this rental just has VERY BASIC stuff. We have a micro, and a range, A large fry pan, A 2 quart saucepan and 2 plates, 2 coffee mugs (small), 2 water glasses, 2 juice glasses, 2 forks, 2 spoons .... you get the idea.
This is the landlords first go at at a "vacation rental".
Prior to us moving from Hawaii to Arizona, we put our place up as a vacation rental, mainly so that when we came to AZ we had a REAL home to come to.
So I know what needs to be here, and let me tell you, it's not here.
Oh well ...
