It’s Sunday and there is cake on our family plates
a soft lemony one
a cake that you could easily handle another slice (or two.)
Made quickly but with love.
Don’t ever think that something made in haste
isn’t without it’s lemony love merits,
that’s just practicality.
A practical Lemon-And-Olive-Oil-Made-With-Love Father’s Day cake.
