Lately, it seems as if I leave more thoughts behind than I keep with me.
I will wake up in the middle of the night with a great idea for a post or with a remembrance of a list of things that have to get done the following day. More often than not, I will lay there for an hour stressing about remembering it - only to realize that I have totally forgotten what it was the next morning.
Sometimes, I will get up and write down those thoughts; however, my middle of the night handwriting isn't always legible friendly...
Thoughts pop up in random places. The grocery list for this weekend's dinner will formulate in the middle of a meeting. A list of house chores will line itself up during the drive to work.
All soon to become the thoughts I left behind.
The important things get written down. Somehow, those mental Olympics leave enough of an impression that some things do stay behind.
Fortunately, I was able to keep one good idea with me over the past couple of weeks - pairing Laurent's slow roasted pineapple with this week's brown butter and vanilla bean weekend cake.
Vanilla bean pound cake is delicious. Vanilla bean pound cake that was made with browned butter is beyond delicious. And when you top that with pineapple that has been roasted in the oven for a couple of hours in brandy, marmalade and spices, well...you'll just have to figure out how good that is on your own.
Hoping that all of my East Coast friends are keeping safe with today's weather. I don't know about you, but my shovels are lined up against the back door ready to go :-)
