CC: Uh...No. Not really.
Mj: Why not?
CC: Because I don't really like baking.
Mj: C'mon, I need your help. It'll be fun. We can spend time together.
CC: You know you don't need my help and I'm right here. We're already spending time together.
|Samoa Bundt Cake. A Giant Girl Scout Cookie|
So Mj was in one of his baking moods. This time it was all about the Samoa Bundt Cake and I ended up helping him out. Sometimes it's really hard for me to say no to him. He did Batter 2, the icing and everything else. He put me in charge of Batter 1 but he watched every move I made. I was a glorified assistant and I just followed his instructions so I absolutely can take no credit for the deliciousness of this cake. Not only does it look like the Girl Scout cookie it tastes like it too. Its perfectly moist and the coconut gives it this amazing crunch.
|Condensed Milk turned Caramel|
We did discover something truly amazing. Did you know that when boiled condensed milk turns into Caramel? It's like magic. He put the can in a pot and boiled it for four hours and when he opened it up it had magically transformed into Caramel. Who knew? Well if you didn't know now you know. If you want to make this cake and I think that you do, you can find the Samoa Bundt Cake recipe here.
Saturday morning I did an exercise video. Then, I did a little shopping and we went to a Bar B Q. Gymnastics was on! I got to watch the Secret Classic-the official first step to the Olympic Games which is coming up soon. Sunday morning I woke up and went to the gym and spent most of the rest of the day relaxing. I love it when I can go to the gym in the morning while I am energetic instead of having to drag myself in after a long day of
work. Monday morning I woke up and went to the gym for another 1 hour sweat session. Later on, Mj fired up the grill and we enjoyed the sunshine outside and ate sliders, hot dogs and beans while listening to music. We had time to watch two movies and I squeezed in a load of laundry. All in all this was a pretty fantastic three day weekend.
