It was nice of Mister Obama to wait until after the Royal Wedding and not steal Wills’ and Katie’s thunder, hey? I’m told the young royals had a blast and that ‘the dancing was “fun and outrageous” … “There was a chicken dance with lots of arm-flapping, which was particularly good fun.’ Arm flapping? Mmm … I wonder if Tilly Bud was there?
Anyhow, after lots of festivities and a string of public and religious holidays, we’re back to routine and reality. I spent most of yesterday in my kitchen, avoiding my computer, which was only yielding a constant stream of rather ghoulish revelry about the death of Bin Laden. I chose to revel in chocolate instead. Prompted by a recipe pointed out to me by Souldipper, I went out and bought biscuits and made chocolate squares for the Bunn’s lunchbox fillers.
I then baked a rich chocolate cake for my MIL, who is having some church ladies over for tea today. I used an old recipe for coffee cake and substituted the coffee with NoMU drinking chocolate, what a winner. (Recipe available on request.)
For our supper (just the Bunn and I – Old Spouse is away on business) I made a fabulous Gaprao neu-uh (Thai beef stir fry) using my newly procured tin of NoMU Oriental rub and got the ultimate accolade from my child; Please can I have some more, Mom?
And so it’s on with the week, I have a terrifying amount of work to do and there’s no point avoiding it. I’ll just have a quick gander at the blogs first …
