It's Friday!! Hooray! I cherish the weekend 1000 times more now that everyone (oh--yes--did I mention Robby is back in school too?) is in school. Here are some of the things I loved this week.....
I love chocolate. You do too, right? These are the cupcakes I made a few weeks ago for our back-to-school feast. They should come with a warning.....they are so incredibly rich and chocolatey.... I don't think I could feel my feet after I ate them. But they were the perfect remedy for the everyone-is-leaving-me-and-going-to-school blues. The cake recipe is the same that I just posted, and the ganache is super easy!
Whipped Chocolate Ganache
12oz. good quality chocolate
2 cups whipping cream
(enough for 24 cupcakes)
Chop chocolate into small pieces and place in bowl.
Bring cream to a simmer on stove, and pour over chocolate, stirring chocolate until mixture is smooth.
Put mixture in the refrigerator until it's cold.
When mixture is cold, whip until it's firm and spreadable.
Sprinkle with sprinkles.....because it looks kind of ugly. (I think you can pipe it, but you'd have to work very quickly because it starts to firm up)
I love when he reads to her.
We love color! And we aren't afraid to use it!
EEEEEK!!! Glee is back!
Are you so excited!! Can we talk about it?
What did you think?
-I'm happy for it's return....but I will say there have been episodes that brought me goosebumps and tears....and the premiere brought neither...what about you? I still loved every second, and I about died during Sue's and Santana's conversation....ha!!
-Coach Bieste. oh my. I am so confused....I know she is a she, but she looks like a he. And sounds like a he. And has big arms like a he. But she put on lipstick and cried and then I liked her/him.
-Why is Rachel all the sudden the hot girl?
I am a chapstick lover. This is my favorite right now...it's PERFECT! I actually haven't found anything from the entire line that I don't love.
I LOVE taking pictures of couples....it is my absolute favorite! Email me if you and your other half would like me to come play....it's fun:) (and see more of these two here)
As usual, I am completely smitten by the Toast catalogue. I cannot get over their insane photography.
I love sweaters!! All kinds....and right now I am especially loving oversized, cozy boyfriend sweaters
Pomplamoose has a new song! Of course I have to post the video!
Also--if you are feeling like you need even a bit of inspiration or motivation to get up and get moving....PLEASE go watch THIS. Runners you will LOVE it! Non-runners--you will love it, and want to start running tomorrow.
