Sunday: At Home

Sunday came and went, and I have done a bit of everything from pulling weeds in the backyard, to cleaning toilets! I even managed to get out for a few hours and shop around with a friend for some furniture. It’s the long civic weekend in Toronto, so a proper bbq is in order tomorrow. We will have a few friends over, and the food will be fabulous as usual, with grilled corn and Pineapple Jerk Chicken Kabobs. I’m going for gold everyone! For dessert, I’m making a Red Velvet cake with cream cheese icing, and right about now, I bet you’re wishing that you were invited, right? It’s okay, I’ll do one better and share a recipe with you so that you can enjoy with me:

My neighbour was a little under the weather yesterday, and I thought to myself, “He needs a cake, too!” Needless to say, I baked a Red Velvet for him, and baked extra for the bbq. Two birds with one stone is what I call it, and it came in very handy. I now have a happy neighbour, and less prepping for Monday! Fantastic! If you decide to try out the kabob recipe, be sure to take pictures! You know how I love to see your creativity at work! Enjoy your night, and happy Sunday everyone!
