I just made myself a big mug of hot chocolate FROM SCRATCH. And by "from scratch" I mean I didn't use Swiss Miss. I had a canister of Godiva cocoa in my cabinet that I bought a few weeks ago when I decided that I was going to start baking all sorts of things from scratch. That sentence should actually read "start baking things at all" because, let's be honest, I wasn't baking MUCH OF ANYTHING before that.
I can't remember what came over me on that day but I found a recipe and gathered ingredients, and several hours and one delicious, yet VERY, VERY EXPENSIVE, chocolate cake later, I decided Betty Crocker was really onto something with her whole JUST ADD WATER boxed mixes. And so my Baking From Scratch Career began and ended on the very same day, which explains why I had a mostly full canister of eleven dollar Godiva cocoa in my cabinet tonight. So I made hot chocolate because as the saying goes- those who can't bake, microwave.
I really wish I could come to you tonight with a summary of my very exciting weekend, but that's not possible because my weekend was pretty status quo. Matt had to work on Saturday and I had to work on Sunday which puts a SERIOUS CRAMP IN MY WEEKEND STYLE. We did go out at night though, and on Sunday afternoon we watched Apollo 13.
Listen, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.
Halfway through the movie Matt even turned to me and asked, "Why do you seem so jumpy and nervous?" and I blurted out "BECAUSE I CAN'T REMEMBER IF THE ASTRONAUTS LIVE OR DIE!"
Believe it or not I have seen the movie several times. I just forgot the small detail of the astronauts' fate. SPOILER ALERT - they live.
What a relief.
So the weekend ended on a high note, and today was pretty good for a Monday.
Now it's time to go plan my Election Day outfit.
I plan to theme dress. Obviously.
