Please visit my blog as I write my first book, the authorized biography of Leonard Pennario.

It is the wondrous avocado green cake pan.
Who could resist it? Not I.
For $2 -- less 30 percent off -- at an estate sale, I got a cake pan that can be used for so many things. It is in mint condition and had the label still inside telling me what to bake in it.
FOR NUMEROUS POPULAR RECIPES, it says.
BOHEMIAN COFFEE CAKE.
FESTIVE JEWISH CAKES.
DELIGHTFUL POUND CAKE.
DELICIOUS CRUMB CAKE.
FANCY FRUIT CAKES.
ANGEL FOOD CAKE.
UPSIDE DOWN CAKE.
Howard says we should go down the list one by one. Then we can take it again from the top.
That would be fine had I not bought size 4 pajamas at a garage sale I also went to. What to do? What to do?
For now we will just admire the pan. Alert Leonard Pennario fans will recognize the handwriting of the great cellist Gregor Piatigorsky to the right of the pan. I was studying that letter earlier today which is why it was sitting there. Six a.m. while the rest of the world slept in, there I was drinking coffee and pondering the words of Gregor Piatirgorsky. Don't worry, of course I xeroxed the letter. That is not his actual letter kicking around my desk with my avocado cake pan.
