1st WHOOPPEE – snow is gone and what started out as a wintery morning, ended up being a sunny, but chilly Sunday afternoon.
The whoopie pie (also called a gob, black-and-white, bob, or “BFO” for Big Fat Oreo) is an American baked good that may be considered either a cookie, pie or cake. It is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake, or sometimes pumpkin cake, with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them. Strasburg, PA holds an annual Whoopie Festival featuring a whoopie pie eating contest and the coronation of the Whoopie Pie Queen. Here’s a whooppie pie recipe.
Grenville restrained himself from eating one right away since we were going out to attend a friend’s wedding yesterday afternoon. While the wedding cake wasn’t chocolate covered in fudge sauce, it was delicious – and homemade too! (Congrats Teresa & Jerry)
3rd WHOOPPEE - in between watching the morning snowfall and enjoying afternoon dessert, we took a walk around the neighborhood. The daffodils had shaken off their frosty covering; the snow was gone from the grassy areas and the garden. And, there are blossoms everywhere – SPRING was just slightly deterred today.
