eating a pineapple in a coconut grove

Sorry for the slight disappearing act - when it comes to excuses, you may pick whichever poison you find most palatable: illness, lack of free time for babbling on an on about nothing, sheer laziness, leading such a boring life that there is nothing worth blogging about - all are applicable (and true).

Yesterday, for my self induced weekly baking exercise, I took the tiny, yet ripe, pineapple from the garden (we bought two pineapple plants awhile back at Mal-Wort, and one ripened faster than the other) and turned it into my first ever pineapple upside down cake. It's delicious (if I do say so myself, lol) but there was a slight accident in trying to make it right side up. Needless to say, pineapples, cherries, and bits of cake stuck to the pan may taste just the same as the part that flopped out on cue, but they result in something that is not particularly photogenic. I'll try again with the next pineapple :)

I also read up on pineapples - they're fascinating! Apparently you just cut off the top, cut it down a bit, let it dry, then plant it and it will grow a whole new pineapple! I'm trying it with the top from the pineapple I made into the cake yesterday, I'll let you know if it actually grows anything or not.

Also, the good folks from Firefox who are responsible for my beloved FoxyTunes program, have apparently created an update that will now post info about what song I'm listening to while blogging.

So, here's the test drive:

While I wrote this, I was listening to:
Greatful Dead - Whiskey In the Jar
Amy Winehouse - You Know I'm No Good
ATB - Ecstasy

i'm so jealous that you have a pineapple tree!!!

next time you bake your cake you have to sing the song Pineapple Princess by Annette Funicello:

"He sings his song from banana trees
He even sings to me on his water skis
We went skin-divin' and beneath the blue
He sang and played his ukulele, too
"Pineapple princess", I love you,
you're the sweetest girl I've seen
"Some day we're gonna marry and you'll be my pineapple queen"

Hi Stacey :)

I've never heard that song - it's adorable! Sounds like it must be from one of those 60's beach movies :)

You should let Spongebob stay over in your new guest quarters.

Gosh, I hope I didn't bake Spongebob into the cake - I wasn't looking for him at the time .. hmmm ;P
