We’re dog-sitting this weekend and I’m delighting in the company of one Mr. Panko. He’s a handsome little poodle and we’ve had a lot of fun so far. Yesterday we went to the farmer’s market in New Canaan and took a walk around town. We played and he napped a little in the afternoon and then we took a long walk in the evening. This morning I got up early, early, early and we took another long walk.
Last night, Panko afoot, I realized that there’s no way we could eat all the luscious plums in the fridge so I decided to make Jeremie’s Mom’s plum cake. It freezes beautifully and that’s what I intend to do.
getting ready for the oven:
Jeremie’s Mom makes this cake pareve and often serves it for Shabbat dessert but I made it dairy, so it’s sticking to coffee time or dairy meals. I love dairy meals. Later this morning we’re heading off to Forest Hills, Queens to meet up with some family and have brunch. Hopefully we’ll hit up some Kosher markets afterwords so we can stock up on el Kosher chicken. I can’t find kosher chicken wings around here. Can you believe it? Oh – ps – it’s yontev so no markets. Silly me.
The new countertops & sink come on Tuesday. I’m very excited. I’m a little worried that I won’t be able to take good pictures on the counter anymore, but such is thus.
