kale salad and a modified Hummingbird Cake/Pineapple Upside Down Cake. I used the cake from the Hummingbird cake recipe and made in only 2 cakes pans rather than 3. On the bottom of one pan, I used the pineapple "topping" method from the Pineapple Upside down cake as well as the frosting recipe. While the cakes were cooling, I ran out to the mall to pick up some items I needed, including a tupperware cake transporter. When I got home I attempted to put the cake together (pretty pineapple and cherry topping on top of course) - turns out I should have made the frosting before I left the house so it would have time to set in the fridge before I applied it. Learn from my mistakes... So I chopped up 4 heads of kale for the salad and mixed it up with the dressing and breadcrumbs while the frosting cooled. Then I finished assembling the cake (I only frosted in between the layers and around the outside, not over the top, and the covered the outside with chopped pecans) and ran out the door - I was late!
At the end of the day we were both exhausted and crashed hard. We both had a busy productive Sunday as well - I'll post some pictures soon to show the progress we made in decorating/organizing the reading nook section of our bedroom. All in all, a fun and very productive weekend!
