We've had an amazing amount of rain this spring. In April and May it rained most days and it's still raining at times. Overnight we had a thunderstorm and there's more forecast for tonight. So what do we do during long dark rainy days? We bake.
I found a really easy, really good tasting recipe for apple cake. It's in the Heart Association Cookbook, so it's even good for us. I think Rob became addicted to it because we made one every week for two months. I made it so often that I memorized the recipe.
Last weekend I decided to make some cookies that Fudge could enjoy without causing me to feel guilty. The dough looks pretty strange, doesn't it?
When I went outside yesterday I noticed that the branches of the plum tree were hanging low. I was curious and walked close to look. Well, it seems we're having our best crop of plums ever, too. The branches are full and the plums are getting pretty big. Too bad they're so sour.
