Pineapple Upside-Down Cake, Refried Beans and Spring flowers

Food photography is a huge thing 
I haven't been trained or gone to any
of the amazing seminar retreats for this,
so I wonder if these photos are presentable! 

This one I touched up...looks more tasty I think :)
You might notice the cherries look different...
these are my homemade Marachinos
using the cherries from our tree! 
I HIGHLY recommend homemade ones if you love them...
I'm still shocked at how wonderfully delicious 
they are. 

This cake...I didn't get to taste.
I made it for the men's bible study
group my husband attends... "The Ironmen"...
I tease them as I ask what dessert
they want for their Irongirls meeting...
usually I make Banana Pudding the old-fashioned 
way with meringue.  I think their hips
were getting wide and they told me to 
hold up on that for awhile. 
This week they wanted PUC. 
Ew. Well, you know what I mean. 

On the homefront, I was determined 
to produce some refried beans
not out of the can. 
Well you know...there is nothing
in the process that involves frying
As it turns out, we just cook
our pintos same as always, 
season them with some pork
and salt :) 
(puerco y sal)
and put them in a blender or
food processor. 
Our protein level just rose
a few notches here last night.
Fiber level too. 
We are satisfied! 

Spring blossoms adding some
cheer in the kitchen,
glad they are inside and 
not going to be pummeled by the 
winds and rains today.
Basement door open, 
candles in place...
hope the tornadoes 
are non-existent 
or very weak today. 
Thanks for stopping by, my buddies!
