Our Day Off

My idea of a day off generally consists of a slightly shorter than normal list of things to do. With a few chores for others tossed haphazardly in to make like slight less convenient. But this weekend is not most. This weekend. I planned nothing. Literally nothing. The Editor and I decided to sit on the couch/bed all day for 48 hours and watch TV. And 26.5 hours in, we are pretty successful! We have only left The Editor's apartment to procure breakfast at Denny's, a Blu Ray player at Wally World and a candle at Walgreens. That was it. We have sat and watched TV. The Editor doesn't have the tools of the trade like I do at home. But unable to sit still for that long and a slight fear of couch sores made me get off my butt and make some white chocolate cups with chocolate pudding and fruit. Said fruit was growing fur in the fridge and I think it talked back to me when I took it out. So I substituted some frozen fruit instead. They came out pretty good. Easier than I thought. I would prefer to use some custard type filling and some fresh fruit. But like I said, this is a start. Boy is it fun.

I talked to Little Bear about what he thought about opening a cupcake shop. He said it was a good idea, and he would be my chief helper. We love to watch Food Network Challenge together. So who knows, maybe this will develop into a family thing. The lemon zest cupcakes went over really well. Gram suggested they be bigger and I have to agree with her. But a start is a start.

Editor's Note: They were good. Very very good. Especially considering they were only our 2nd meal of our incredibly productive day.
