My weekend started out in a healthy place with an 8:00 a.m. yoga class on Saturday. It devolved into pizza, beer and tiramisu by about two, and then I made a big batch of chocolate chip cookies. I only ate two of the cookies. That's good, right?
That evening, we took the remaining cookies and went to a reception at The Zen Zone, not realizing that it would be snowing vigorously by the time we arrived. We hung around for an hour or so, then grabbed a quick dinner and went home.
On Sunday morning, I started researching recipes to find something vaguely movie-themed that I could take to Piper's Oscar party. I chose a Tres Leche Cake, which I renamed "I Drink Your Milkshake" Cake. It turned out great, even though I kept putting in tablespoons of ingredients that should have been measured in teaspoons (notably, baking powder in the cake and powdered sugar in the whipped cream).
The party was fun and I ended up winning a DVD of "The Queen" for correctly picking (guessing) seven of the top award winners.
Between my cake baking and my party attendance, we had a truly awful band practice for the cover band. It took more than three hours to get through two sets, and the recording shows that we have a long way to go before we're going to be ready to play in front of anyone. I hope it was just an off day.
Weekend Nap Tally: An hour-and-a-half on Saturday. None on Sunday. Sigh.
So that's my boring life right now. Let's hope for something more interesting in the coming week.
