A Celebration

Last night I made cupcakes. This is an incredible feat because I don't cook. Now just to make it clear, I can cook but I choose not to. In fact, I always said I would find a man who knew how to cook and liked it. My mother and grandmother both laughed at me, but I showed them. I found him, and he cooks regularly. I do abstain from cooking altogether. As I said, I did make cupcakes last night, and every now and then, I will make dinner.

Back to my cupcakes... This was a spur of the moment thing. I originally was going to get cookies, but the cupcake mix and funfetti icing beckoned to me. I started making them as soon as I got home because I really wanted to lick the bowl and K was still at after school program. It was then I realized I got large cupcake cups instead of minis. I don't own a regular muffin pan only minis. So they were going to turn out a little weird. Oh, well. Then I got tired of pouring the cupcakes so I made a one layer cake to go with the cupcakes. What does this have to do with anything you might ask? Well, it's a good thing I made them because I'm celebrating....

I pretty much live off of salads, sandwiches, and soup...all things that require little to no cooking. I hate cooking. Fight the power. =)

Natalie said...

Cupcakes?! That is sooo much better than an award! :)


You're so lucky to have someone who can cook. I think my boyfriend can, too, but messes up on purpose so I'll just do it. Kinda like the laundry...and the yard work...LOL

I'm off to check out the nominees :)
