At the beginning of this week I got an email that it was time to sign up for the teacher appreciation lunch that would be held today. I have been haunted by the disaster I took last time and I wanted to show you what I could really do. So when the email came I took a good look at my calendar and this is what I saw.
I knew this would be a busy few days so I decided two things:
1. That this would be the perfect time to rearrange my kitchen/ keeping room.
2. That I would sign up to make a chocolate cake.
Why? Because I have lost my cotten pickin' mind thats why!
And because I wanted to make this cake for you. Isn't it pretty! I knew I could do that. And I could do it Gluten Free which I felt like would deserve bonus points. Bonus point which I need in pre-algebra and science. Not that I would be trying to blackmail you with cake but you understand.
Anyway- In my mind this was a beautiful cake. And then I went a little crazy and started thinking about how I could put it in a cake box and everyone would say "How pretty, Where is this from?" And I could put a lable on the box with my blog address on it and then everyone would marvel that I had made the cake and how great it was and then someone would read my blog and then they would call me and I would say, "I would love to write a cookbook!" And that would be great because I was thinking through all of this while I was moving my keeping room all around and I could use the money cause now I need a new rug.
But I was also thinking about the great blog post I could write when I showed off the beautiful cake. About how you all have made my 8th grader's middle school years so great. About how much he is going to miss you next year. About the difference you've made. I was even going to name names!!
I thought about it yesterday morning and yesterday afternoon-I need to make that cake today. Last night between church and big projects (you know who you are) and dress rehearsals I made this.
Definately yummy, but its not chocolate cake.
This morning about 6:45 I remembered the chocolate cake. I would have whipped it out. I could have whipped it out, but I had to take my daughter to the doctor.
So dear sweet teachers here is what I brought.
I completed my assignment. I turned it in on time but I can't help but think that perhaps this isn't what they had in mine when I signed up.
I took the next picture to show that at least it was a chocolate pudding cake.
And I had to ask myself why they are so proud of the artificial flavoring?
Anyway, Kroger cakes are yummy so there's that. I rarely get to just buy something off the shelf ready to eat so that was kinda fun. My kitchen is clean and my keeping rooms new arrangement is great! So all in all I think I have turned another "C" worthy project.
Next time though I'm getting an "A" if it kills me!
