Upside Down

I continued my cleaning spree that started yesterday, moving to closets this morning.  There is something that just feels so good about purging and letting go of what you don't need or no longer use.  The house feels lighter, I feel lighter.

Jordan came over this afternoon and we did Easter chocolate chip cookies.  Just your basic chocolate chip cookies covered with pastel sugar and jimmies and pearls.  After he left, I decided to do a spiced pineapple upside down skillet cake.  Rick insisted on taking a photo, so you get to drool a little tonight.

Usually we go to my sister's and then Rick's sister's house on Easter Sunday.  This year I decided to cook, so Sam and Jordan are coming, my brother Ricky and his wife Deb, Haven and Anthony ( Alesha has to work) and our friend Fred.  James and his crew might come over after lunch.

Everyone on FB has posted childhood Easter memories today.  My mom always dressed me in those stiff, scratchy, starched organza dresses complete with crinolines.   I didn't like the dresses, but I loved the hats, shoes, purses and gloves.  I never liked to hunt eggs, loved to dye them, hated hunting them.  Malted eggs, jelly beans, and marshmallow eggs and chicks were my favorites.

However or if you celebrate this weekend, enjoy your Sunday.  May we all know peace and love.


  1. Your cake looks wonderful and reminds me of the ones my mom used to make. I did and still love Easter bonnets and think it's a shame they've gone out of style. Hope you have a wonderful day with your family. Happy Easter !

  2. I used to make those upside-down pineapple cakes when the kids were young. They were very yummy but I no longer eat sugary treats anymore except the occasional ice cream cone.
    It looks like a busy time at your house.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. Mmmmmm. I haven't had a pineapple upside down cake in so long. Looks delicious.
