Easter Weekend

I hope that if you celebrate Easter you had a great day!  
We were having a small celebration with 2 of my three children. 

 Every year I make a dessert and every year my husband doesn't like what I make.  
So this year I decided to make a pineapple upside down cake.  
I was nervous about making one as I had never done it but the directions seemed easy.
  I wish all those folks on IG that said their mom or grandma used to make them would have shared their recipe, but I found mine on the internet.  
This is what it looked like in the cast iron pan before I turned it out onto a plate.


This is what it looked like after I turned it onto the plate.  
It was really pretty. 
 I know now why my husband likes it so much. 
 This cake was more the consistency of angel food cake.  
Are they all like that?  
I prefer a more dense cake, he likes light and fluffy. 
 If anyone has a favorite recipe for this I would love to try yours!  


Here was our spread minus the cheesy potatoes, which were in the crock pot on the counter.  
Main meal was ham, cheezy potatoes, Caeser salad and rolls, supplemented by spinach artichoke dip, cheese and salami, deviled eggs, assorted relishes, veggies and dip and some chips.


I managed some sewing time and got another Splendid sampler block completed.


I also got my March bee blocks completed.  
These might be fun to make in Tula fabrics.  
We were to use navy and low volume.  I chose some navy Tula and of course my Pearl Bracelets.  
I have to pop these in the mail tomorrow.


My cat, Hallie, who never gets on my sewing table thought it would be fun to join me.
She is kind of like a ball with legs.
I'm glad she is liking to spend more time near me lately.
They are not getting any younger!


I hope everyone out there enjoyed their weekend!

Your blocks are great! Me-new has been getting closer to me too. It is a nice to have a quiet cat. She however is still bedeviling the Yorkies and has decided to take on the pit. Our husky is one dog she has not yet decided to bully.

Growing up I made pineapple upside down cake a lot. Love it. Used a dense cake recipe from Fanny Farmer cookbook. Will have to try to find it on the internet it at my moms. Yum!

No one in my family was really a baker so I am of no help. Your Easter spread looks marvelous.
