And I'll Never Have That Recipe Again

Here is a picture of a tree on the lake where we stayed in Missouri for Valentine's day weekend. Have I mentioned that I'm a tree hugger?

Tonight you're all just getting a quickie. No foreplay, no sweet talk, no nuthin'.

Stinky helped me bake a yellow cake with chocolate fudge frosting. I couldn't find the pumpkin cheesecake bar recipe, so we'll all just have to suffer through with the cake. I think I can handle it.

The girls were off school today because yesterday was the end of the trimester. So, much of the cleaning I did yesterday had to be redone tonight. Stinky spent most of the day at the neighbor's house, but Coadster is grounded for another few days for reasons I won't disclose to you. She has totally accepted responsibility and even laughs when Stinky and I keep making the same joke where we ask her what she's doing tonight and then answer it ourselves with, "oh, nothing."

Okay. Here's where my lameness ends. I just ate some of the cake still warm from the oven. (you know - to make sure it wasn't poisoned or anything) I have to tidy a few things and then I must to bed. I want to be nice and rested for Erik's visit.

So, tomorrow after work looks like this: food, fun, friends, daughters, libations and Erik. What more could a girl ask for?

I left today's comment on yesterday's post. Duh!!!

It sounds like a full plate, full of delicacies beyond compare.

Enjoy the weekend..Love warm cake...

nothing more to ask for

Warm cake...yum! And fudge frosting? Double yum.

I hate those directions that say "Let sit until cool" when it comes to desserts. Especially cake and chocolate chip cookies.

I always want to come eat at your house when I read posts like this. Hey-been meaning to ask what you are up to the weekend of the 8th. If you wanted a ride to St. Louis I could swing by and get you. I'm not coming back until Monday though (which may not work for people who actually value their jobs!)

at least you didn't leave the cake out in the rain.

Seriously, your lyrics sometimes crack me up.

Have a WONDERFUL (or should I say ERIKFUL) weekend.

Double helpings of all the above. I'm not worried about you being too shy to ask, but JUST in case. That's what more a girl could want.

Sounds like a whole lotta weekend-y goodness coming your way. Have a great one.

How thoughtful of you to make sure the cake was suitable before serving it to your loved ones ;)

Also pretty cool of you to keep your kids grounding business private. My mom used to tell all of my business to every single one of her coworkers when I was a kid so that people I barely knew were congratulating me on getting my period or scolding me for back talking.

Anyway... nice move keeping it private.

Do they really call the school term a trimester? That sounds like a promotion for teen pregnancy.
