Rain, Rain, Go Away!!

We are in the middle of torrential downpours! Here in Alberta we sometimes have wet springs, but more or less dry summers. We are known to be quite a dry climate overall...

Well sump pumps have been working over time for the amount of rain we have gotten in the last two days! It has been raining...and raining...and raining...and hmmmm...raining some more!

I have decided I don't like rain - NOT AT ALL! Rain is cold and wet, it makes my hair frizzy and makes me want to hide inside and drink tea and eat yummy baked goods. So I broke down today and whipped up a strawberry-rhubarb pudding cake. You know the kind of cakes, the batter rises to the top and the fruit pudding is hot and gooey on the bottom. The kind of cake that goes perfect with a dollop of whipped cream on top and a cup of tea on the side.

So I am going to sit down with my frizzy hair and try not to scowl at anyone and eat my cake and drink tea.

Hope everyone else's summer is warmer :(

  1. Oh, you just made me so sad that I live far away! I love your pudding cakes. Well, all your baked goods for that matter. Mmmmmmm... We also have the joyous torrential downpour. Remember being cooped in the house on rainy days when your kids were young? Yeah, you can pray for us! ;)
