Weekend musings

Another weekend, another month gone by, another random round up of links for you. I've had thoughts of baking cakes lately, like pound cakes and nut cakes, cakes with very specific ingredients that look oh-so-tasty especially with strawberry season upon us. What's better than a slice of cake with fresh-from-the-stand strawberries and freshly whipped cream? When it's mildly warm out, not much is better than that. When it's really warm out, I'd go for strawberries and ice cream. Maybe the strawberries will motivate me to actually bake something soon, an occupation I've seriously been lagging behind in. Until then, happy weekend-

  1. I like the food links on this post, particularly the one about bread. And the photos of the swans (especially the one you mentioned) are very eye-catching. Make room for strawberries soon! -- Michael
