Spring Forward ~ Earthquakes ~ Richard Wright ~ Jennifer's Dogs ~ Peanut Butter Pound Cake ~ Baked Scallops

Good 40º foggy  morning.  
I hope you remembered to set your clocks ahead an hour. If not, you'll be late for church!

My friend Erika who lives in La Crescenta said she felt and earthquake in the middle of the night. Couldn't find anything about it so I found this site...

Most on the west coast and one in Missouri.

I just read that a deputy that worked Temple with Jerry just passed away. Richard Wright.... such a nice and funny guy.
                                                    RIP Rich.

Yesterday I had copied off some photos of Jennifer's dogs and cat and took them over to her. As I left here it started to sprinkle. I was angry as I just had my car washed! Fortunately it wasn't enough to even turn on the windshield wipers!
Jennifer and I had a nice visit... got to love on her dogs...

Peanut Butter Pound Cake
This recipe from or Mr. Food Test Kitchen on Facebook....

2½ sticks of butter, softened
2 cups sugar
6 eggs
½ cup creamy peanut butter
2 cups all purpose flour
¼ cup chopped roasted peanuts (maybe) Or chocolate chips!

1. Preheat oven to 350º. Coat 2 9x5 loaf pans with cooking spray.
2. In large bowl combine butter and sugar. Beat with mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. Stir in peanut butter and flour.
3. Spread equal amounts of mixture into loaf pans. Bake 20 minutes then remove from oven and sprinkle with equal amounts of chopped peanuts. Return to oven and bake 30-35 minutes more, until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.
4. Remove from pans and cool completely before slicing.
