had a nice relaxing day...

Nothing much happened today, but now that my truck is back and the AC is working good, I was able to go out and get some shopping done, as food was starting to get a little scarce around here...

Got some great fresh peaches and sliced them up over what my Grandma used to call a quick cake... Grandma wouldn't let those yellow sponge 'shortcakes' you get at the store anywhere near her house during strawberry season.

Mix together -
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup flour
two level teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt

-then set aside.

In a measuring cup, break one egg and add vegetable oil to make 1/2 cup.
Add to dry ingredients, mix well, add a few drops of vanilla, and (optional) 1/4 tsp. cinnamon or cloves...

press into a pie pan, sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon or cloves

bake at 375 until the sides of cake leave pan, test center with toothpick.

Use like shortcake with any frest fruit and/or ice cream.

Hope all my blogger friends out there are having a great weekend... later.
