Randomness and Recipes
I made a couple of things today. One, I made some awesome chili. See, I've always struggled with finding a recipe for GOOD chili. I'm not a huge fan of the dish so I was looking for something that I liked and I finally found it! It's called 12 O'clock chili and can be found here. If you are looking for a new Chili recipe - check it out! So I picked Chili for today because it is perfect football food plus it is October so it is cool and crisp . . well it is SUPPOSED to be! Instead it was pushing 80 today so it was a little hot for Chili, but it was still GOOD!!
Then, I was making our dessert for the week - Chocolate Chip Pound Cake. As I was mixing the ingredients I realized that it was the exact same recipe I made a few weeks ago - Too Much Chocolate Cake. (Click here for recipe). oops! But, it was much better this time because I remembered to put oil in it :-)
Finally, instead of making cookies I made Cake Balls.
here . These are SUPER sweet - a lot like a Truffle. A couple of things - 1) I used yellow cake with chocolate frosting and vanilla coating. 2) Put this on a tray covered with Saran Wrap so you can get them off once hardened. 3) I ran out of coating before I ran out of cake :-)
So, I have lots of things to post about this upcoming week! Crafts, Recipes, Songs, and more. Lots to look forward to :-)
Oh, and one last thing! State won the big game!! YIPPEEE!!!!
