How Solar Power Makes You Fat

1. The house was freezing. Two sweaters and wool knee socks and a space heater just weren’t doing it for me.

2. Electric power is free, gas is not.

3. The furnace is gas.

4. The oven is electric.

So whaddya think I was gonna do?

And that’s why a cherry almond cake just came out of the oven, the Fannie Farmer almond cake recipe made with Milk Pail‘s fresh almond paste and an added ~half teaspoon of almond extract, pour over a layer of tart cherries in a springform pan and bake. Done.

And then have to deal with the hubby who doesn’t want to wait for it to cool–come to think of it, neither do I.

That looks wonderful! I have resorted to baking to warm up my place. My heat and stove are electric, but my reasoning is that the stove is on for a shorter time than the heat, and the food will warm me from the inside!

Nom nom. It’s cold here and I like turning the oven on, too.

This makes perfect sense to me. And I’ll be right over!
