Theme and Variation

Another typical weekend is wrapped up ’round these parts.

There were block parties.






Birthdays were celebrated.




Saturday’s activity was bowling, not bikes.






And peaches, not cherries.





Kale, not chard.



As usual, Sunday night dinner was eaten among friends.




And my favorite cake was devoured.



I used my coconut flour lemon muffin batter, added service-berries and swapped out the lemon for slices of lime and lime zest.



The icing on the cake?

Cherry bourbon whipped cream.



I threw a cup of cherries from last weeks picking in a pint of bourbon and let them soak all week.  After whipping the cream I doused it with several good glugs and gave it another whisk.



The perfect end to a delightfully typical weekend.
