Good morning, pals! So: I am not a baker. But way back at the beginning of the pandemic, when the grocery stores were still having a lot of trouble with their delivery orders, I was mistakenly delivered a whole bunch of boxed cake mixes, which sat on my shelf until… this morning, when I made a cinnamon coffee cake! And oh wow, maybe I should… be… a baker? I get to just eat this for breakfast now! Warm cinnamon! With my coffee! So: maybe today is a day for letting things from the start of the pandemic go. Or baking them!
