This post was to have gone up earlier today, but it seems that typepad was having some problems, so here we are a day late and a dollar short, but still here all the same...LOL
My Wednesday Walks (and all the days in between) have been walks on the treadmill lately due to wintery conditions. I am not much of a daytime TV watcher, but I have timed my walks so that I watch Martha Stewart's show when I am on the treadmill.
Anyone who knows me knows I am not much of a domestic goddess anymore.....I know, hard to believe... however there was a time in my young married life, when my house was spotless and I hand smocked all of my daughter's dresses. but then dogs and life happened, and the rest is history. :-)
Anyhoo...........earlier in the week, I saw Martha and her guest making these cute little conversation type mini cakes. I thought hmmmm.........perhaps I will surprise Ken and the girls with these little cakes for Valentine's dessert.
Well... here I am on Valentine's Day with kids and husband home due to the blizzard we are having...... dogs not happy about sinking up to their necks in snow and me up to my elbows with yarn and dyeing. It surely did not make for the conducive domestic moment that I had envisioned while on my treadmill a week earlier. You see the sad results of my efforts in the picture above...tee hee.
I guess I will skip these fancy schmancy recipes that never seem to work for me and stick to my old basics. I have no clue what happened to this frosting recipe other than it was a huge waste of 3 sticks of butter and it didn't taste very good.....oy vey! (the red velvet cake WAS yummy though)
I hope your "Love Day", as my daughter Ashley refers to it was a good one!
