Today Sunday 28 June the weather in Ottawa was cold 15 C windy and rainy, extremely unusual for this time of the year. In fact we have only had dinner on our terrace a few times this year because of the cold weather, when usually in late Spring and Summer we have dinner every night outdoors.

Here are some shots I took today of the garden outside our building, very green with the wet and cool weather the plants are doing well.



Also today I wanted to try out a cake recipe my mother left me. This simple recipe was a favorite of us kids at home so many years ago. The Tomato Soup Cake with a Cream Cheese icing. It turned out well and I am quite happy about it. I cannot remember when I last baked a cake, this is something I do not do.

The texture is somewhat like a Spice Cake, it does have Cloves, Nutmeg and Cinnamon as spices. It also has to be Campbell’s Tomate Soup for the mix.
