go man go

December 4, 2011

Here is the scenario.  My better half requests cake at 11 pm on a Saturday night.  All stores and restaurants are closed within a 30 mile radius. The upside is that there is a ripe Mango in the refrigerator and the kitchen is stocked with the basics, so making a cake is definitely an option.  The downside is that it’s getting late and I need to get busy.  After reflecting on my upside (and down)… it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to guess where I’m going with this…I’m on it.  Usually made with pineapple, this cake is simple yet satisfying and can easily be made in a cast iron skillet with any type of fruit. Somebody stop me….

    “Your better half”? Who is better than you if you can whip up a mango cake at 11pm on a Saturday night? I do believe she is one lucky lady!

    I am not stopping you man!!!

    Pineapple upside down cake is my ULTIMATE comfort food! Upside-down? Yes.…for those near and dear, you know how apropos for the hustling, bustling, and struggling this holiday season I seem to be experiencing on many, many levels.

    A little vignette to share. I ran into my local Wal-Mart at this morning for some Excedrin and had my check-out line position challenged by a trailer-park version of Mrs. Clause wearing Snoopy pajama bottoms. (It was only 7:30 am after all). I relinquished the spot after spying the skull-and-bones tatty behind her right ear.

    I think this holiday I will hold a wassail…
    The historical purpose of wassailing was to awaken the cider apple trees and to scare away evil spirits to ensure a good harvest of fruit in the Autumn, and Lord knows I’ve see a few evil spirits this week. Here is a menu of hors d’oeuvres I will serve. Date TBA:

    (Don’t Get Me) Creamed Spinach on (I’m) Toast Points

    (Save My) Sole Almandine

    (Throw Me A) Crumb Cake

    Shrimp (Half)-Cock(ed)tail Platter

    (I’m) Fried Calamari

    Pepper (Spray) Steak

    (Bashed And) Bloodied Mary’s

    (Throggin’) Egg Noggin

    (Black And) Bleu Angus Sliders

    (Off My Noodle) Kugel

    Crabby (Mood) Salad

    And my all-time favorite…

    (Bobby Flay’s “Flailing-AssKickin’-But-Don’t-Break-My-Baby-Back) Ribs

    Bon appétit…
