So far it has been a busy weekend, so much so that I haven’t had the time to read subscriptions or to write any posts. This one wil have to be a quick one, in fact, because there’s a lot to do this Sunday.
This morning I’m trying a recipe for Red Velvet Cupcakes that uses roasted beets instead of red food coloring. Actually, it uses canned beets but I went ahead and roasted my own beets since that is easy enough to do. I like the idea of not using the food coloring but I also think a beet cake should be very pleasant, in the same way that a carrot cake has a moist sweetness that comes from the carrots. We’ll see how it turns out.
I’ll leave you with a photo I took last Sunday while riding through the park near the Queen Sirikit Convention Center. In a shaded hollow there is a statue of Buddha, surrounded by trees and looking towards a large lake. Beyond the park, condominium towers have risen and the scene struck me as being an interesting combination of both the peacefulness of nature and the intrusion of modern urbanity.
Anyhow, I hope you are having a fun weekend.
