I think that one of the worst things about setting our clocks ahead one hour, is that most of us will now have to wake up to total darkness in the morning. Waking up to glints of sunlight streaming through your bedroom window is bearable, but greeting the day while the moon is still out is. just. wrong! UGH!!! When faced with the inevitability of what was to come on Monday morning, I decided to make a few things to bring a little “sunshine” into what was sure to be a dark and dismal experience!
I hit pay dirt at the market the other day, citrusly speaking, that is. I not only found lots of lovely orange clementines, but I also found the most beautiful Meyer lemons, as well. This especially excited me, because I have never seen Meyer lemons there before. For weeks now, I have enviously read post after post by various bloggers, waxing poetic about both of these juicy, fruity little gems. I bought a dozen of each and, on the drive home, imagined all the delicious things I would make with them.
Of course, I couldn’t wait for Monday to taste the cakes. Mr. SGCC and I have been enjoying them with our morning coffee these past few days. Both of them are excellent, as I knew they would be. Don’t worry, though. I have some of each stashed away ready to help me combat those Monday Morning Blues. Thanks, Lori and Michelle!
Oh, and by the way, the video clip at the beginning of this post is a 1932 animated short of Irving Berlin’s “Oh, How I Hate to Get Up in the Morning” by the legendary Max Fleischer . Fleischer was a pioneer in theatrical animation and was the creative genius behind the Betty Boop  and Popeye  cartoons. As a matter of fact, Betty makes an appearance in this one. It is brilliant!
