No, actually it's a picture of Strokkur beginning to erupt in Iceland, a place I'd love to visit. I found the picture at this lovely site/blog : www.julepstyle.com
It's beautifully designed and a treat to peruse. All about Southern life today and yesterday.
The way I came upon it is so circuitous I have to tell you. We have a zillion small chicken eggs in our refrigerator, and I got to thinking about making a cake, or something with meringue, to use as many as I can. And then I started thinking about the elusive pineapple torte which my Aunt Bay made for me the last time I saw her, about twenty years ago, in Fayetteville, NC. I've never been able to find a recipe for this exquisite dessert, but last night I typed in pineapple torte southern recipe, and here it is.
Aunt Bay, (Mary Pride Clark) was my father's sister, and a great cook. The recipe does not look easy, but sometime this month I'm going to attempt it.
I'm up EARLY because some business things are perking maybe- cross fingers. I'm going to visit Pepper and wish I had my new camera, but it's more important to get out there and get him some carrots.
