I whipped up the cake linked here:
(one of my very favorite blogs, The Pioneer Woman-her cooking section is completely delightful, and yes, this is the best chocolate sheetcake ever).
It is cooling on the kitchen counter as I type this, and my whole house smells like warm, melted chocolate. Oh yum. I whipped it up to bring to Scout camp tonight, and ended up making my stand-by Sun Dried Tomato Pasta Salad (by the lovely Ina Garten). And Shelly, you win the prize for sending me the best recipes (even if I didn't use them today, I definitely will this summer!) I will be popping something fun in the mail to you, cooking related of course.
Looking forward to seeing my boy again, he has had a rough week at camp with lots of stomach troubles. It appears to be part homesickness/part change in diet. That is one reason I decided to make the Sun Dried Tomato Pasta, as it is one of his favorite summer foods.
So tonight I will be enjoying a campfire, in the beautiful Wisconsin woods, followed by a quiet night in a cabin with the scent of pine and the calls of loons drifting through the windows. And tomorrow I bring my boy home, for a quiet weekend of relaxing and getting back to city life.
