Happy Friday all! I am thanking God for Friday more than usual today, as this week has been crazy!
Just to give you a taste, I had my hair freshly colored yesterday. I came home to no nap, full toddler meltdown mode while I was trying to make dinner. I was making my favorite Hearty Bolognese sauce and putting out toddler fires left and right. I went to open a can of crushed tomatoes and our can opener missed several sections along the edges. So there I was going over and over the same spots to no avail. Toddler screaming as my blood starts to boil with hatred toward the can opener… So finally I tried to puncture it myself, splashing tomato sauce everywhere…including my brand new hairdo! Awesome. As you might know, one way to keep your color looking intact after a dye job is to go a few days before washing it again. I rinsed the tomato sauce off with water, but there’s a chance it’s still in my hair. In other news, we need a new can opener.
Since my mishap yesterday, I have been binge eating this delicious coffee cake. You definitely need to try it! It’s the perfect Fall treat to pair with coffee.
Cinnamon Coffee Cake

- 1 1/2 Cups Flour
- 1/2 Cup sugar
- 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
