*********
I have always just LOVED beautiful paintings of fruit.
I think this one of oranges is so pretty.
♥♥♥
...and speaking of oranges...
I have to say that I am terribly in luv with this cute
fresh oranges sack....
I'm pretty sure I will save it...
on that same shelf where I have
empty fruit cans....
..am I becoming... *gasp......a hoarder
?
I mean....WHO saves little paper sacks ?
I am TRYING to eat more of a healthy breakfast.
I KNOW
pancakes...
french toast..
cheesy scrambled eggs...
biscuits and gravy...
PIE....
these things aren't very good for us..
especially
EVERY SINGLE MORNING ! 
I figure if I throw in
ONE
good, healthy breakfast
a week...
well....
that means only SIX aren't very healthy
as opposed to
SEVEN ! 
Now, I haven't made this
ORANGE CAKE...
but I've been told by several that THIS is a fantastic recipe...
I just may make it this afternoon..
Then, in the morning, I could have a big slice of it
FOR BREAKFAST
since we all know
ORANGES ARE GOOD FOR US.
;))

Oh I agree! Since oranges are so healthy for us slice me up a big ole piece too please:@) Actually, it really is one of my favorite flavors!

Love this post! I love oranges and the color orange! WONDERFUL!

Sherry said...

Oh, I love orange cake. I'll have to try your recipe. You have my mouth watering. I thought I would let you know if you need to tackle a paint project that Valspar is giving away a Power of Paint kit. Details on my blog.

Oh goodness BJ! I love your idea of healthy eating! lol. The painting is gorgeous too:>)

PEA said...

You've got me craving oranges now! lol Love that little bag, don't blame you for wanting to keep it. Yup that orange cake just HAS to be good for you:-) My mom once made an orange cake and it was so moist and delicious, must ask her if she still has the recipe. Sometimes she follows a recipe in a magazine then forgets which magazine she saw it in! lol xoxo

Deb said...

I like the way you think, BJ. If I made that loaf I would eat it for breakfast along with my vitamins :)

BJ,
I thought one was a hoarder ONLY if they DIDN'T use the things they were keeping. You, like me, use EVERYTHING. .. right? ? ? Adore the orange sack! Think I'd stay away from that Orange Cake for at least a week. But then, maybe not!
Fondly,
Pat

Here's what I just finished baking for my breakfast: rolled oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, walnuts, and just a bit of melted butter. Bake for 20 minutes at 350. After 10 minutes, mix it up so it toasts evenly. I eat 1/2c every morning with vanilla soy milk and 1/2 a banana and a glass of OJ. Delish! Hey - I'm in California after all (:

The Decorative Dreamer said...

I am trying to eat a little better too and just bought a big ole bag of oranges myself! Just how healty do you think the orange cake is? Can we include that in our healthy eating plans? :))

mmmm...lately the one thing on my grocery list has been clementine oranges...just like candy! Laughing at your bag fettish (it happens to the best of us!) and lovin' that cute little orange juice cup! Have a great day!

Sarah said...

Oh, I'd save that little bag. ;-)
We are enjoying bags of those delicious little sweeties.
You can set another seat for breakfast, BJ. I'll be joining you for a slice of that orange cake.
See you in the morning. ~ Sarah

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

You are so funny. Yes, I agree eat healthy one day a week! My dad's favorite cake is orange cake. Sounds perfect for breakfast to me.

Shelia said...

Yep, you've done it again, BJness - you've certainly tempted my tummy! This cake looks wonderful and I love me some oranges!
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Good girl, Beeeej! I love your orange sack :)

Donnie said...

Loved your post. Bought some clementines today and they are delicious.

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Hi bj, I just cut that same recipe out of our little community paper. I thought , boy, that sounds so good !

Debbie said...

Last year, my theme color was orange. I tried umpteen orange recipes and can say honestly that I loved them all. I'll need to try that cake and add it to my stash of orange treats.

Laughed at hoarding the bag. I would have hoarded it too. I realize that's no comfort, but...

LV said...

Thehe is nothing wrong in saving certain paper sacks. Please do not become a hoarder. I know people that are and the life they live is terrible. I love good fresh orange juice.

Love oranges and the cake looks fantastic. Your cloche display with the oranges is so pretty and so inviting. Great post. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

Mary said...

I loved your photos today, bj. A good orange can make the world go away :-). I hope you enjoyed the cake. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Becky said...

I just became your 800th follower. Love your blog. And yes, oranges are very definitely breakfast food and good for us. :-)

Mahek said...

I love those orange sacs or bags too...
How did you get that mosaic with your photos ...

La said...

The orange painting is so pretty. It stands to reason that orange cake for breakfast is much healthier than chocolate.

Happy Tuesday! La

Trish said...

I too like the little orange picture...the orange cake sounds divine.....I’m going to put it on my recipe blog. Trish

~Kori~ said...

On the topic of non-healthy breakfasts, but also oranges, I LOVE the Pillsbury (I think) cinnamon rolls with the orange icing....yummy!! With a big cup of sweet, hot coffee...mmmmm! :p

P.S. I would totally save that bag and frame it. In fact I may start stalking my local produce departments. :)
