I like TV.
I especially like TV after 9pm when my kids are in bed sleeping and I get to pick “grown up” shows to watch. You know, something without singing animals, but instead has “adult themes” and “strong language”.
Quick overview: Shawn Spencer has acute observation skills and together with his best friend Gus has convinced the Santa Barbara Police Dept that he is a psychic. It’s kind of like the Mentalist but funnier and, in my opinion, better looking. In the pilot episode of the show, Shawn grabs a pineapple from a shelf and suggests to Gus that they should slice it up for the road trip. The pineapple has since become as much a part of the show as the crime solving cast. In fact, USA Network often has a “spot the pineapple in tonight’s episode” contest where viewers can go online and win psych paraphernalia.
The Psych season premier airs tonight and in honor of that I have made Pineapple Upside-down Cake.
These delicious little cakes, much like Shawn Spencer, aren’t exactly what they seem to be.
Okay, not completely fake, but the cake is from a box. *Gasp* I know, it’s so unlike me! But what a time saver. And how cute is the pineapple shape? I found the Nordic ware pan at TJMaxx but have also seen it online at Amazon or BedBathandBeyond.
Make these cakes and watch the season premier of Psych, tonight 10/9c, on usa network. Trust me – you won’t be disappointed on either account!
