New Year's Eve and Day

Well we were real party animals last night! At about 11pm I started to bake a cake FROM SCRATCH. The last time I baked a cake from scratch I don't even think I had any kids yet. But I do have kids now, and if it hadn't been for the gift card for Williams Sonoma they gave me for Christmas and the high-end cake pans I bought with it, I am sure that baking a cake would not have been on the agenda. It was supposed to be a Goodbye 2006 cake but it took so long to make that it became a Hello 2007 cake. We finally had some around 1 am and then watched the 80's classic "Revenge of the Nerds" on TV. I told you we were party animals!

So now it is 2007 and my kitchen looks like an explosion at the bakery. I finished taking down Christmas instead of cleaning up after last night, but now I'm just plain stalling. Which brings me to my first New Years Resolution--Quit Stalling! Actually, the big resolution I am going for is to Cook More Meals At Home. If I do just that one, all the minor resolutions will fall into place, those being Spend Less Money and Eat Healthier.

Well I'm going to quit stalling now and go clean up the kitchen so I can make something for dinner. Viva la resolution!

Yum! Did you make frosting too?
