The highlight of tonight's meal, Strawberry Cake, was inspired by a recipe by Mata Cukierenka on Pinterest. My translation follows. I know how to convert grams to dry measures, since I do that for a living. Don't tell Dr. Head, I had to ask the internet for conversion from Centigrade to Fahrenheit. The strawberries are from Yoder's Farm in Grantsville, purchased today at the Mountaineer Mall Farmer's Market.
Spray 3 small bundt pans with Pam. Beat 1 egg with 3 Tbsp. sugar. Add 1/2 tsp. vanilla, 3 Tbsp. margarine, and 1/4 cup milk. Stir in 1/2 cup flour, 1 Tbsp. cornmeal and 1/3 tsp. baking powder. Grind 1/4 cup almonds and sprinkle in bottom of each pan. Dice 1/2 cup strawberries and layer onto the almond crumbs. Divide the batter evenly among the pans. Bake at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes.
Yes we did sample a piece of cake before dinner! Here's the rest of the meal:
Also inspired by recipes on Pinterest, I cooked gold potatoes and carrots, purchased locally, and smashed with a little hot milk. The sirloin steak was cooked in the crock pot after I got home from work with a balsamic reduction sauce. Served with fresh garden tomato (from my parents) and mescalin mix from my container garden.
I had a lot of dishes to wash. . . .
