Truthfully, The HOchieS rarely do "Sunday Lunch". We do more of a Sunday Dinner but isn't the idea of "Sunday Lunch" the thing's that most sacred?
I would kindly ask that no one point out that we have not had a true Trini Sunday Lunch in some years now, thereby bastardizing anything sacred.
At my suggestion (because I am always so full of great ideas), we feasted on pesto spaghetti with shrimp.
H1 threw in a salad and garlic toast, and Luuuuiiiiiisssss bought whole wheat linguine instead of spaghetti.
I know, I'm not sure why it is people mess with brilliance and add their own things either.
This is a close up?
The whole enchilada. Or pasta plate.
Whatever you fancy calling it.
Why hello, Shrimp and Pasta companion.
And hello to you, blue cheese dressing and salad friend of yours.
Lookin' good there, Garlic Bread.
If anyone ever wondered, let you wonder no longer. I have the best shishtah. She's the kind of Shishtah that goes to the local Spanish Grocery brings home a Spanish Milk Pennacool type dealie for me.
Not only does she bring home one, she brings home four!
Well, it may be that all four are not for me but that is alright! Because she brings me tidings of sweet potato flavoured goodness!
Now, call me crazy but I do not remember there being "flavours" to pennacools unless we're talking colour flavours. You know: White flavour, pink flavour, green flavour, blue flavour and orange flavour.
I suppose though one cannot expect these pennacools to be Trini pennacools but never mind, they're still milky and good right?
My Batata one was yummy. It was a little bit grainy as expected but yummy, nonetheless (I must confess that this was my true Sunday Lunch).
After a Saturday night debacle involving 1/2 cup too much of buttermilk, we created that great chocolate sheet cake and put it in cupcake form.
Oo, those silicone cups I got from S. Cheeks
really are something special.
Then we topped them with some really awesome butter frosting.
H1 did all the work this time - well, almost all of the work.
She may tell you that her cupcake was dipped all pretty-like into the sprinkles while mine was a disaster but I would like all to do a side by side comparison.
My cupcake next to H1's.
Do not let the addition of cherry sway your judgment!
