Project 364 ~ Week 11

Chocolate Mocha Ice Box Cake

The DD did a great job making this amazing cake. She ran across this recipe last week while she was exploring the old “Honey Did Ya Write That One Down!” binder. It was super easy, a bit ingredient heavy but not to complicated. I will say that I think the proportions were off a bit. The instructions said that there should have been five layers starting with the cookies and then layer the mocha whipped cream and so on and so forth. I have always found this to be the case that it never quiet work out exactly like the recipe says it will. We only managed to get four layers.

This is what it was supposed to look like!

It was delicious, but I think next time we may increase the mocha whipped cream and decrees the layer of cookies.

Never let it be said that the hubs doesn't know when to fold his cards. It’s the beginning of allergy season and he suffers greatly. This also means the  decibel lever of his snoring increases exponentially as the pollen count goes up!

Sometimes I think
Our heads might be enclosed
Closer together upon the pillow's space,
And how into the dark deeps of your eyes
I'd look and think of angels. Then your breath
And all the aura of your body's breathing
Intoxicatedly would overwhelm me
And I would die. For it is too much
That such a thing should be and I should live.
Surely the thought is greater than reality,
The sum of you and love outsteps infinity.

Spinach & Cheese Omelet

Friday, March 11

The DD had a sleepover and the hubs was out of town on business so I had the house to myself! I made a stop at the new Kroger and picked up some dinner. This is a super fancy Kroger so they have a full salad bar as well as a fancy section in their Deli where you can get a hot meal served up. Not to bad for $5.99, two pieces of chicken, two sides and a dinner roll. The gentleman who served me was very nice to me and offered me a third side for free so i got the apple crisp. It was all very good, all except for the roasted vegetable, they had seen better days but over all for under $6.oo what can I say!

I enjoyed my fried chicken while watching one of my DVR selection, ya know the ones you have to watch when the hubs and DD are not around. I watched an old one Les Misérables, I had never seen this one before and it was very good! I have become a HUGE Leim Neeson fan!

Then I had a bowl of chocolate frozen yogurt with dark chocolate Hershey's on top.

It was a good evening at home all by myself.

This was on sale…I’m not a huge fan of flavored creamers. I find most of them to be to sweet! This however seemed to have a wonderful balance of hazelnut flavor without being overly sweet!

The cake looks good, DD did a good job (even if it didn't look exactly like it was supposed to!)...do they ever turn out like the pictures, anyway?

Hazelnut is my favorite flavor of creamer! I agree, most are too sweet, but we found the hazelnut to be just right :)
The mocha cake looks soooooo delicious! I'm a fan of anything mocha flavored :) Actually I'm a fan of anything edible. lol
Have a wonderful week!

Mimi said...

Mimi

I don't really like mocha, but that cake looks really good regardless - yum!

I love evenings to myself - not too many, but every now & then is great.
