hot fudge cake
Sunday afternoon I made hot fudge cake, Capitol Reef Best Western style. I worked at the Capitol Reef BW Restaruant between high school and college and they made the best desserts. I had never had fried ice cream until then, and I loved their hot fudge cake. I wanted to relive the glory days and make some for my family. It looks a little tipsy, but it was delicious!
Since I am finally feeling like the Christmas season is here, I figured this was a good way to kick it all off. Since I just figured that out, all the snow has melted and I have 2 gifts purchased. I am in a bit of trouble!
The night before this was taken, I MADE Matt watch Twilight with me, and then New Moon. I told him in the summertime that watching the movies with me was a winter obligation for him. He grumbled and mumbled, but I think he secretly enjoyed snuggling on the couch with me until 2:56 am watching Bella, Edward, and Jacob. By the way, Matt likes Jacob (as do I) and I was wondering if this were a male thing - I think most guys don't like Edward. Anyway, in this picture he just woke up from a 4 1/2 hour Sunday afternoon nap. I think it must be in our genetic make up as mothers to be able to handle less sleep than men. Oh, and then Sunday evening we watched Eclipse together.
