Come On Back Into The Kitchen

Hello, Dear Ones!
I thought I would bring into my tiny little kitchen today.

I got it all cleaned up for my visit with Jeanne and had to show it to you before I messed it all up.

I know I show you the same angles in here, but it's so small I don't have anywhere else to stand to snap! :)

I had set the breakfast room table pretty simply for our dessert.

Pulled out some of my colorful dishes.
They were blooming with flowers since it's summertime.

Simple.

Had to have a little centerpiece so I poked some faux hydrangeas and a doily in a little tool box!

Okay, see that shiny tin foil over there?

Well, I knew Jeanne was coming so I baked a cake.
A skillet cake!
I forgot to take a snap of it to show you, but it was pretty and chocolately.
Now trust me, this is a delicious cake. I've made it twice now and it's so yummy!
You make it in the cast iron skillet, bake it in the cast iron skillet and keep it in the cast iron skillet.

I found this recipe over at Tina's blog Cherry Hill Cottage.
She has a picture of what this delectable makes your mouth water chocolate confection looks like
and you'll find the recipe.
If you make it, tell her I sent you over!

Be a bunch of sweeties,

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

If I Knew You Were Coming I'd Have Baked A Cake

Come in! Well, well, well. Look who's here.
I haven't seen you in many
a year.
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?
Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band, grandest band in the land
Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band
And spread the welcome mat for you
Oh, I don't know where you came from
'cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter
Grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig, dig, dig right in
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, hired a band, goodness sake!
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, baked a cake, baked a cake
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?
Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band, grandest band in the land
Had you dropped me a letter, I'd a-hired a band
Spread the welcome mat for you
Oh, I don't know where you came from
'cause I don't know where you've been
But it really doesn't matter
Grab a chair and fill your platter
And dig, dig, dig right in
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake, hired a band, goodness sake!
If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?
Howdya do, howdya do, howdya do?
Howdya do-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-oo
