Rich Food… Too Rich?

Caitlin made me the richest most illness inducing (in a good way) cake I’ve ever had I think. It’s a chocolate cake using — I’m guessing — about two dozen Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups chopped up and stuck to the icing. Intense to say the least.

Seriously, damn!

That was yesterday. Today she had to work through supper, so I cooked a meal that Nefarious and I love, but Caitlin despises — OKRA. In this case, okra and shrimp and brown rice (and a few assorted veggies) in a fig sauce. I also cooked blueberry and currant muffins because I found out today that it’s my day to provide snacks at Nefarious’s school — I guess I’m one of the parents that they know they can pretty much always rely on for last minute tasks (which I don’t mind at all).

Time to relax now with some mindless TV… I watch far too much television I think, enjoying Terminator, Heroes, House, Survivor, and 90210, and when the seasons start, add Dexter and Big Brother (as well as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report of course)… If there’s a good show that’s not on that list, seriously, seriously, please don’t tell me. I’m better off blissfully ignorant.

That said, the TV that I’m most looking forward to this week is most definitely the Vice Presidential debates on Thursday. Please oh please let it be as hilarious a trainwreck as I think it will be. I’m sort of thinking though that they’re going to toss Palin off the ticket at the last moment and swap in Liberman or Romney and somehow pull a believable win out of their hats rigged voting machines.

    It was actually 10 packs of three peanut butter cups, so that makes 30. Although some fell on the floor and Ari ate a bunch of it before it made it onto the cake.

    That cake looks suicidally good. Also–oh, God, okra is amazing.

  3. heh. I suppose you’ve never heard Biden open his big pie hole either.He’s got chronic foot-in-mouth disease. This should be interesting. I hate all of them, but I’m looking forward to seeing what happens

    I saw the ridiculous clip where Biden mixed up the history of the depression, and his strange Beretta shotgun NRA thing, but I assume he’s spent enough time in politics to talk circles around her…

  7. House, Dexter, The Daily Show, and The Colbert Report are all great shows. But I do have to add Good Eats. The best cooking show on the Food Network.

    Okra only gets slimy when it’s wet, you know. Try roasting it whole – toss ‘em in a pan with some olive oil and spices, at 450 for ~15 min.

    WHY MUST I BE PEANUT FREE?!! Damn, that cake looks GOOOOOD.

    I cannot (!) believe you watch 90210!! I couldn’t even make it through the first episode.

    I recommend trading in that show for Fringe, an x-files type of show.

    I’m with you on the Dexter and Survivor though. I don’t like Hereos anymore though- they lost me last season. We watched the first two episodes and were dissapointed and I don’t think we’ll keep up with it. I have never seen House or Terminator.

    You know it’s gonna happen.

    McCain will win because “America just isn’t ready for a black president”, nature will take it’s course at some stage in the next 4 years. Et voila: President Palin!

    Batten down the hatches now.

    I can has okra and cake? Please??? Your leftovers of dinner are what I would happily eat for breakfast any day.
    Haven’t yet seen the VP debate, this is soon to be fixed. Would be nice to see debates include more than donkeys and elephants, though.

  1. [...] with decorations. I’m a little ashamed because it’s hugely inferior to the cakes that Caitlin has cooked for me (or for Nefarious). But I’m a lover, not a baker. [...]

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
