Even more Taiyaki!

As these cakes are eaten without cupcake paper holders, they should be baked about a minute longer that ordinary cupcakes would be baked; so they can be held in your hands while being eaten.

I’m baking another batch of my Twin Ports famous taiyaki

These are for my anime club friends at the University of Minnesota, Duluth.  Today, I’m using GRANDMA'S® Mini Sandwich Cremes Vanilla Flavored Cookies and Kraft Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme for filling.

“Imagine Canal Park” at Canal Park

This free community event was held in the Northwest Iron parking lot at 44th Avenue East across Canal Park Drive from Little Angie’s.  

Residents and out-of-town visitors came to share experiences they’ve had in Canal Park as well as their ideas, thoughts, and suggestions about Canal Park’s past, present, and future.

These idea boards, or ideas stations, used to evaluate pre-generated ideas and post suggestions created by event visitors, will be used to make Canal Park a destination for every member of the community and all vacationers.

These are community member generated ideas that will take time, money, and years to make real.

It has been years since I last ate classic s'mores!

The police horse patrol was keeping us event goers safe.

On the way back home, I saw a kayaker on Lake Superior.

I bought seven boxes of Betty Crocker ™ Krispy Kreme Cake Mix.

I bulk-bought these cake boxes, as I didn’t want to take the 10 Duluth Heights Mall city bus to the Target department store once each week for several weeks at a time.

While I was walking back from the cinema to my apartment

I found two hopper cars and a “maintenance-of-way” (MOW) vehicle under the South Lake Avenue overpass.

This Fairmont Tamper is used to maintain the track between Duluth and Two Harbors.

I walked down to the Marcus Duluth Cinema

I didn’t find a poster for the My Little Pony: The Movie (2017 film).  But, I did find that some thieving vandal has risked arrest to steal a ten dollar movie poster.  Whoever did this vandalism in view of cameras and bright lights is very dumb.

A new King Manor, buy a basket Co-Op poster!

Five dollars purchases a heart healthy vegetable or fruit basket.  See y'all on Monday at noon at the fourth floor dining room for King Manor Co-Op registration.

I’m making even more Taiyaki

I had leftover cake batter from yesterday.  Therefore, I made these for my Rainbow Senior Center friends.

More Taiyaki

These two Taiyaki appear even better than most that I have baked.

I’m baking Taiyaki

A notice for the happy, apartment party I attended at King Manor

I brought for the party a bottle of Dijon mustard, one box of raspberry pastry bites, and two boxes of doughnut holes
