Yesterday I went grocery shopping, and I put a super-special ingredient on my list I don't usually buy: cocoa powder. Someone on twitter - I can't find the tweet again, or I'd credit it - posted a link to a mug cake.
The link above isn't the same as the one I saw on twitter, because as I said - I can't find it again. But the gist is the same: you mix up all the ingredients and nuke it for three minutes. I made this recipe in a bowl instead of a mug, since the cake is supposed to rise over the top. I figured a bowl would make for less mess, and I was happy with the result. Great cake, no mess.
Oldest loved the cake too, despite the fact I made it with Splenda and rice flour (instead of sugar and all purpose flour - stuff I can't have). This stuff is chocolate evilness. Totally worth a look!
The guys are kinda bummed, hubby especially, since we're really having to tighten the purse strings. Grocery dollars are shrinking, and food prices are going up. The cost of filling up the cars is just outrageous. And that's just the start of it. The guys are very ho hum, and I'm in utter Stressville because school starts for Mini in August. Tell you what, I'm stocking up on the chocolate NOW. I'm going to probably have a complete breakdown that first day of kindergarten. *_*
The school is doing something very weird this year, too. All the boys attend school on the 23rd, and all the girls on the 24th. The first day of actual school is the 25th. I've never heard of such, and I keep wondering why they'd do that sort of thing. Some weird new orientation? As if we didn't have enough to worry about already....
Anyway, that's just a few of things on my mind right now. That, and the werewolves. The current story coming along, albeit slowly. I can't seem to get it together on this one, and it's frustrating for me because the story is so simple. Stress is a lot of the problem, but I don't see that going anyway any time soon, so I've gotta snap out of it and get this sucker written. Someone care to crack the whip?
That's it for now. I hope you have a lovely Wednesday. :0)
