Sunday Night

This is a true story about defying the Sunday evening blues. Only the pajama colors have been changed to protect the innocent.
















Two favorite bloggers inspired this post.

Please make this cake using any kind of fruit. It takes 5 minutes to mix, and then bakes up like a dream.

that looks yummy and what fun to make a late night with a cake. I'll make one tonight, but probably before 10 p.m.!

First of all that's another great illustrated story from the files of your life. It's sweet and colorful.

Second, I love you gals's pajamas.

Third, that cake looks delicious, I hope you made enough for eveyone. I'll be by to pick up my slice later.

And finally, thanks for your kind words about me and my blog. It's so very nice to be recognized by nice people like you. Keep on rockin' my friend and keep on with the lat enight baking as well.

Hi Caroline. I love your blog. I check every Monday to see what new adventures you have had. Your drawings are inspirational! I will try this cake, for sure.

Thanks for sharing the recipe. We'll have to give it a shot!
I appreciate the work that goes into your blog, btw! It can't be easy to do all of those wonderful drawings. I'm always amazed at your output.

I love the cut away view. The whole entry brings a smile to my face, warms my heart and gives me the tummy rumbles.

Crayons,
Hmmm. It looks like someone has a new roommate. This made me so happy! My sister and I used to have those same kinds of midnight capers, but never on Sunday night. Darling, I love the color scheme this time -- well every time. The photo at the end is brill.

I've just been catching up on your blog, you just keep getting better and I love your many pictured stories. The eyes on the cat cracked me up, I have a new kitten and I know that look!

I am going to have my caregiver try this recipe, it looks scrumptious. Thank you for sharing as I am on the prowl for new foods that are nourishing, easy to eat and delicious.

You know, while I was down and out and struggling to come back, I could feel you out there cheering me on. You are a dear friend, thank you.

What a great idea for a cookbook! It would be so much more fun and easy with wonderful illustrations like this!

Suzy said...

You get the Sunday blues too? Sheesh. They are the pits. Good way to deal with it, and I too will be making that recipe soon.

It reminded me of visiting our friend in Paris, who pulled out a bowl and a plethora of ingredients one evening, no recipe to be seen anywhere, and -- voila -- a cake. I wonder if it was a similar recipe.

EMBELLISHER said...

Just discovered your blog.I love the illustrated recipe.(I'm in the process of making embroidered recipes).Makes the whole process so simple and easy, something I like with recipes. I'm going to try this.There's a variety of fresh fruit to choose from too.

bobbie said...

I agree with mojoman. This is the best possible way to create a cook book. Beautiful post! As always!

Ginnie said...

You have such sweet illustrations, Caroline. I really think you should put a book together...maybe a cook book??

Selma said...

That cake looks absolutely divine. And the PJs ain't bad, either!

possumlady said...

I love your illustrations. Found you a couple of weeks ago from Nina at Nature Remains and made your cake with frozen blueberries last Saturday night and absolutely devoured it. There is something so comforting about it. I think it will be a weekly staple for a while. This Saturday, raspberries!

Sue McGettigan said...

Oooh that's too cool! The cake and the illustrations are both totally delicious looking :)
