Falling deeper. . .
into my cooking abyss. I really should've made a resolution that I could live with. Maybe I should just resolve to continue to cook as desired and just work out more, he he he. Well for starters, today was Robert's birthday so cooking was unavoidable. Right? He originally requested BBQ spaghetti for his birthday dinner, and an angel food cake (at least that is low fat). For those of you wondering, BBQ spaghetti is basically a homemade BBQ sauce mixed with slow cooked pork and put on top of spaghetti noodles. Unfortunately, I did not have the ingredients on hand for those and wouldn't you know it, when we woke up this morning it was snowing. . . again. So change of plans. New plans: Bourbon chicken, chow mein, and a marble cake with raspberry sauce. Boy, when Robert changes his plans he certainly does get more elaborate! But hey at least we had the ingredients for that, even the bourbon :-) And sides it's got to be a special occassion for me to make a marble cake in the first place. And even more special to make a raspberry sauce. I won't mention the amount of umentionable words I mumbled under my breath while straining the seeds from that stupid raspberry sauce. But in the end, it all turned out great. So Happy Birthday Robert!
