BYOB (Bring Your Own Bowl)
Calories per serving: 670 | Total Fat:39.2g
I was going to have my friend over for lunch and before I got around to asking her she said that she was making soup and asked if I wanted lunch. Since she was providing lunch, I told her that I would make dessert. It wasn’t much after that this exchange happened:
@hurriedhomemakr How much butter? Gotta know the butter quantity before I can commit.
hurriedhomemakr 3rd recipe down - 4 (yes 4!) sticks of butter!
Chocolate Candy Bar Muffins
@hurriedhomemakr F-F-F-Four sticks? Now you're talking. LOVE you.
Today @hurriedhomemakr is my favorite for supplying me with a FOUR stick o butter recipe. Yes, yes, yes. #FatProjectReverse
I had gone shopping to Trader Joes later in the week and picked up their cocoa powder. At some point I noticed the recipe on the back of it. It was very similar to the above but had buttermilk in it. 3 CUPS of buttermilk. We already know how I feel about anything “butter” and I was not going to pass up this opportunity to add it. I decided to combine both recipes and top them with butter cream. (I ended up using a butter/Crisco combo in it)
She calls this morning to confirm lunch. I let her know that 11:30 was still fine and that I was making dessert. Then she said “You really need to stop baking and start gardening.” Um, what? Either she just called me fat or is telling me that my yard looks like hell. Either way she can suck on my butter cream topped cupcakes later. She then says “ok just have a glass of water and a napkin ready for me and I’ll have the bowls and spoons.” I say that I HAVE bowls and spoons and she says that she knows and that she just wants to use her own. Um, WHAT? Either she’s saying my dishes and spoons aren’t good enough or maybe she’s afraid that my dishwasher doesn’t clean as well as hers. Either way she can REALLY suck on my butter cream topped cupcakes later.
Of course I tweeted about this call because how could you not?
Nuh uh. Nobody does my girl like that. Ima fat da bitch up myself. Where my butter at?
is she also calling you unclean?
I don't get it. Does she think your dishes are not clean enough, or is she using portion bowls from Curves?
We have lunch and it was a really nice white bean soup that she has made before. It’s always delicious and I’m always told how much time goes into it from the blending of the beans to the squeezing of the lemon for juice. I was all ready to hand her 5 gold star stickers when I realized that the cupcakes will be her reward.
These cupcakes were ridiculously delicious. I can be my own worst critic and I can tell you that these were damn good. She asked about the recipe and I got out the container and showed it to her. She also asked if I MADE the frosting and I said that I had and it was a butter cream. I guess she needs to check up on me since I had already put the kitchen aid away.
After lunch I took HER bowls and spoons and pot and washed them in the sink and then HANDED THEM BACK TO HER. Um, what? Well they were hers after all and I also added a plate of cupcakes for her to take home with.
Enjoy that frosting honey.
She DID NOT bring her own bowls and spoon, no way.
Um, yes she did…….
It’s appropriate to end with Domino’s sugar following me this week. They replied back to me with:
It’s a pleasure to meet you @TheFriendlyNeighbor Tell us more about your baking projects! :)
Now I need a Land O Lakes follow.
