How is your weekend? My Friday/Saturday has been amazing!
Last night our son Connor treated us to a night out at a comedy club, Comedy Sportz which was super fun! We were right at the front, they are hilarious!
Then this morning I got to wake without an alarm which is something I really Love! (Last night I tried out my new nourishing face and eye mask, so I heated a wash rag this morning and sort of soaked Olathe residue off) then went through my new skin care routine that I discovered on the cruise ship- I think it is improving my rosacea.
I then cleaned/super scrubbed every inch of my bathroom! Even dusted/oiled my hand turned wood candlesticks in my tub surround. Now they glow even without the candles lit. I feel so accomplished! 😂
Then I put on my fancy glitter eyeshadow because I didn’t want to wash my hair today ( that means I can wash tomorrow and not wash on Monday when I have to commute to Salt Lake-early morning). So I pile my hair on top of my head-hence the sparkle eye shadow to distract from my hair!! 😂😂
It’s so sunny today and I’ve got spring fever so I wear a simple tee shirt with my embroidered jeans from Express!
Then we went grocery shopping and really how much fun can that be?? But the fun started when I got back home! I tried a recipe my hubs saw on Good Eats- Alton Brown- Chocolate layer cake with ganache filling and a special buttercream frosting. The ganache turned out perfect (it kind of squished out between the layers, but I think that’s ok! I’ve never made this type of frosting before- ya beat four eggs til fluffy- while you bring corn syrup and sugar to a boil in a pan- then drizzle syrup into eggs while beating furiously being careful not to get the syrup on the side of bowl or on beater and then you add half a pound of butter (little at a time) and it’s supposed to turn out fluffy and creamy!
At first I was freaking out cause it sort of looked like curdled milk (Alton’s warning-“it should not look like this”!) nooooooo 😩😩 😂😂 but after 10 more minutes of furious beating it became really fluffy and Carmel color- and now it’s like cotton candy “It’s so Fluffy”! Success! So I load the cake with this frosting that I hope is good (remember I’m GF and can’t even eat this lovely confection) and put it in the fridge for tomorrow!
We end the evening by sitting and watching “Indiana Jones-Raiders of the Lost Ark” my favorite Indiana movie. Since we hiked through the jungles of Belize, I feel more of a connection to Indy! 😂😂
