Last night I came home (late from work too) and the internet and television were not working. Thursday night television was out and sadly, so was blogging. Yes I could write a post on my iPhone but who wants to do that?!
Anyway, after a long day at work, I wasn’t in a creative mood. Plus my chicken was still frosty (note to self, remove chicken from freezer earlier). So we went vegetarian style with pasta, alfredo, peas and asparagus. I didn’t have the makings for my favorite sauce (see here), so I opted for a jar (gasp). All in all though, the meal wasn’t half bad, and it only took me 15 minutes.
But without television, I had three hours to kick around. I’d been craving chocolate cake for some time, and this was the perfect opportunity to indulge.
I hijacked Martha Stewart’s chocolate cupcake recipe and divided the batter into two 9” cake pans instead. Frosting was butter cream (4 cups of sifted powdered sugar, 1/2 cup sifted cocoa powder, 2/3 stick of softened butter and a few tablespoons of milk).
