TIME:  11:38 AM
PLACE:  Back porch
SUBJECT:  Pineapple upside down cakes

I baked 4 pineapple upside-down cake mixes – each in 2 single layers, 8 total – for the Cub/Boy Scout BBQ today.  As I said, I made 8, but the scouts only received 7 of them.  Why do you ask?  Well, because after I took this photo, I walked back into the house to put the camera away, came back outside and discovered a squirrel nibbling at the cake on the left.  Gah!!!!! Stupid tree rat!  After screaming at it like I banshee and scaring it off. I surveyed the damage.  It wasn’t much.  The squirrel hadn’t been there long and only ate a tiny bit on the side.  Still, I didn’t think the BBQ customers would care for a squirrel tainted cake.  My solution?  I cut out the area where he was eating and fed it to the dog.  Then I fed my family the rest of the cake.  We’re not picky.  We like pineapple upside-down cake so much we’ll eat it even if it does have squirrel cooties.
