The Mean Mom

Just ask my 7 year old, he'll tell you. Don't believe him? Ask my 14 year old, if she still leaves you in doubt, my 17 year old can confirm it too.

Pineapple upside down cake....

There's nothing that can't be cured by pineapple upside down cake.

It has been one of those weeks. I made a small mistake at work on an invoice, as soon as I noticed, I let my boss know, and thought it was done. Oh no... can't be that easy. Now, the president of the company thinks that I need to be more organized. Ok... I'll confess, I am not the most organized person. I'm not even the least organized person. However, while I may be disorganized, I know where everything is... it's in that pile... oh, and so is that other thing you want... you get the idea. So, now I have trays... lots and lots of trays. I wouldn't have minded so much if he weren't such a jerk in the way he handled it. Don't walk in and tell me that I'm incompetent. I am not. If I were, do you think I would still be working there?! After 10+ years?! I don't think so.

Anyway... it had just been one of those weeks, and that was only part of it. Today for lunch we went to our usual Friday lunch place. I got the oyster stew today instead of the veggie burger. Linda knew I was having a bad day, so she picked up a piece of pineapple upside down cake. For some reason, it just made everything better.

I remember growing up and my grandmom would make pineapple upside down cake. She would use the pineapple rings so there was a nice circle. There would be a lovely cherry in the middle, and all that gooey brown sugar yummy-ness all around. She would always give me a large square so that I would get the whole pineapple ring... My mom would protest that was too much for me, and my grandmom would just wink at me, and give it to me anyway... I sure do miss her. Maybe that's why I like it so much. Of course, none tastes as good as hers. Maybe I should find out who has her recipe and make one. I'm sure my kids would like it... I know I did. I'll have to make sure that they each get a whole pineapple ring... and a cherry, and all the yummy brown sugar goodness all round.
