A Weekend Treat

Gentle Readers and Dear Friends I do thank you so much for all the kind words about my little stitching wall. I really enjoy seeing the completed pieces out on the wall and not wrapped up in the completed box.  It was still very windy yesterday and still on the cool side.  I have been keeping track of the weather in Florida and it is in the upper 80's there - so going from the mid to upper 50's here to that heat will be an adjustment... to say the least.  I can feel the sweat already starting to pop out!!  Elisa mentioned in her comment about yesterdays post about needing a "cherry stone spittoon"  now imagine me just popping the fresh cherries into my mouth one after another next to the kitchen trash can - so that I can just spit the stones out. - pop and spit - its a real picture.  Not very glamorous, but it works and those cherries are so very good!!

I wanted to mention a little cake I baked up this weekend - simple and tasty - I posted the information on Blacksheep Bakes so you can click HERE to see that.  

It is called Pecan Streusel Coffee Cake....


The recipe makes a single cake - and works up really fast....


It went really well with a cup of coffee yesterday - and with all my weekend treats this was enjoyed by Rico's work buddies.

Yes, Melody ... I would love to have the Spritz cookie recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!!

Not much else going on - I did some laundry last night and have packed up a small baglette to take.  I am getting picked up tonight at around 8 Pm for my Red Eye to Florida - so this time tomorrow I'll be enjoy all that heat and sunshine.

There you go sports fans - I'll be back in a couple of weeks!!

Take care,
edgar

YUMMY! The cake looks delicious.

I hope you have a fantastic time in Florida! It's in the upper 80s here too, but with all the windows open and the fan going it's just so pleasant. Travel safe, and see you when you return!

Have a great trip to our "Sunshine State"! Are you going to be visiting any of our local needlework stores? Stash makes a wonderful souvenir! :)

Our temps have been warm but with low humidity - here's hoping that holds true during your entire visit!! Happy trails! :)

That cake looks like another winner. I love pecans so I'll definitely have to try this out.

Hope you have a wonderful and safe trip!

Not fair -- the cherries here are through the roof price-wise. I have to wait till later in the summer. :( That coffee cake looks so good! Have to hop over to the other blog. :D Have a good time in FL!
