Bakin' And Bacon Tonight

Steph and I made chocolate cupcakes and frosting from scratch. We also made cupcakes from a box and topped them with store bought frosting. Then we had a taste test for dinner. We liked the scratch cupcakes best.

If you've ever heard Bill Cosby's routine about chocolate cake for breakfast, you'll know you can rationalize a meal of cupcakes. But just to make sure, I cooked up some bacon, too. After squeezing all the grease out I put the cooked bacon back on the griddle and drizzled it with real maple syrup. Sticky, sweet greasy bacon to top off sticky, sweet chocolate cupcakes. And a glass of milk. And smiles.

Sometimes the best meals are the ones you have the most fun with.

DH had a co-worker who came in to work bragging about how she'd made her first "scratch" cake. After some conversation, it became obvious that she thought "scratch" meant that you BAKED it yourself--from a box. She'd only ever had cakes from a bakery.

Bill Cosby, Himself... a family classic. That's saying something (but I don't know what), because some of the other classics included the entire Smokey and the Bandit series, Animal House and Blazing Saddles.

Eggs! And Wheat!
