My day has been dominated by cake!
At work today leftover birthday cake found its way onto a plate in front of me a couple of times (2? 3? Who’s counting?)…
Yes, that would be a corner piece for maximum icing.
In between servings of cake, I managed to eat a nutritious lunch.
I made a roasted veggie salad comprised of roasted curried cauliflower and carrots…
Topped with chicken salad (chicken + light Miracle Whip + carrots)…
All together naaaw…
Thank goodness veggies found their way into my lunch because they were sparse in my dinner.
Dinner this evening came together in a flash!
Is there anything easier than cooking up a big bowl of pasta?
Ryan had to work a little late tonight, so I made us pasta bowls using Barilla whole grain rotini, marinara sauce and chicken.
While I was prepping the pasta, I got a call from Ryan.
“I have a treat for you!”
“Is it edible?”
“Is it sweet?”
Check out the goods!
A chocolate peanut butter cupcake from Sugar Mama’s Bake Shoppe in Clermont.
Holy peanut butter! The icing tasted like super thick and extra sweet peanut butter. It was so good that I rubbed it all over my face. No, I’m obviously kidding. Don’t be silly! I wouldn’t put that stuff anywhere but my mouth.
With the excessive cake consumption that has occurred in the past two days, I’ve realized something about myself. I don’t think cake is all that great. I think I really just eat cake for the icing (with the exception of red velvet cake because that stuff is the jam). (See point #3 of Hyperbole and a Half’s breakdown for my exact thoughts on cake and icing.)
It’s very rare for me to find cake that I think even comes close to the deliciousness of icing. But, when it does, then the cake + icing combo tastes like a little slice of heaven.
I’m off to try to see if I can find any remaining icing on that lil’ cupcake liner!
