Raspberry cupcakes

I was short about a teaspoon’s worth of butter and added about that much extra sour cream in tradeoff and they didn’t rise as high as last week’s. Which is fine.

This time, I made homemade lemon curd via my Meyer tree rather than opening a jar of the stuff from Trader Joe’s.

And again, I took four of the finished cupcakes, with a raspberry on top just like in the pictures, over to our friends Phyl and Lee after they affirmed that yes, they would love to taste-test this version, too.

Lee’s brother fell and died of a head injury last month and that was the last thing anyone expected. Coming for dinner that night, yes. But…

I cannot bring him back. But by golly I can make really good raspberry cupcakes to let them know we’re thinking about them, thanks to my daughter Sam’s heads-up on that recipe.

We do what we can.

Yes, we do what we can. Those cupcakes look amazing! I might need to bake this weekend… I found out, in casual conversation yesterday, that a work friend’s son passed away two months ago. I’d like to do something for her, to let her know she’s loved and supported. She’s a knitter, too, so I thought of making a cowl for her, but the cupcakes sound good, too. Thanks for the idea!

I’m very sorry for their loss.

I bet you added an extra spoonful of kindness as well.

Yes, we do what we can.

Not for the same cause as you, but tomorrow should bring several batches of homemade lemon curd here. Friday should see enough scones made to feed a tea’s worth of women…kindness comes in many flavors…including respberry.
