As I was doing my grocery shopping today, I came across a package of sliced pound cake in the bakery department of the store. It was sad because no one wanted to buy it and they had reduced the price by 50%. What else could I do but take the poor thing home with me? Now due to the fact that my husband and I are trying to watch what we eat, we certainly couldn’t just shovel all of the slices into our faces before the cake went bad. So after I gave it a taste test…what?…I didn’t have any lunch…I discovered that it was not just delicious, but still very moist and fresh.
So here’s what I did to preserve the freshness and my waistline. I took the slices and put them into individual plastic containers. I then sprinkled frozen blueberries on top of the slices (because what is pound cake without berries and a splash of milk?) and put the containers into the freezer. Now, we can wait until we have our Fat Friday meals to indulge and the pound cake has been rescued from what I’m sure would be a slow, stinky death. I must say I consider myself a hero. 🙂
And as a side note…here is my photo of the day. Subject for today was “Clouds”. This is pretty much what our skies have looked like for the past week or two! The rain can move on now. Thank you.
