not dinner. i'm already tired of cooking every.bloody.night. lately i've been all about baking and stuff like that.
so in honor of chocolate cake day, i decided to go looking for a from scratch chocolate cake recipe...and found one that uses buttermilk.
one of the instructions was to add a teaspoon of baking soda in a cup of buttermilk, then let it rest in a warm spot. so i added. and stirred. and licked the fork after mixing.
can we say nasty?
i love buttermilk. it's soul food from the other Land of My People ( i have two lands: Oregon[my mom] and Missouri [my grandmother]. but buttermilk and baking soda? bleah.
so what have we learned today?
- snacking is wrong.
- buttermilk chocolate cake is good.
- snacking while cooking is wrong, but snacking after cooking is A-OK joe.
in other news...
for those of you who have asked, i thank you, and yes, he's still sick. he actually called his doctor and has an appointment Wednesday. (my mom has it as well...lucky her)all i can say is that if his doctor doesn't give him a prescription for super-ultra-heavy-duty cough syrup, i may either be a widow or divorced. the Boy has a cough that is so horrible, it makes me want to hurl.
keeping my fingers crossed that he heals quick. before i have to move out.
