Dinner Thursday January 17

Well, I was up half the night making the extra roses for my Saturday cake order and up early to get the topper cake layers in the oven. Today will be getting all the decorations finished and tomorrow the decorating so I am basically out of commission for dinner.

Today's menu was supposed to be my homemade fish and chips (what was I thinking!) but DH just informed me that he and the guys will be doing dinner tonight! I am hovering between relief and fear at the moment!

Tonight will be sweet-and-sour pineapple shrimp stir-fry over rice. Probably the last of the mini mint Hershey kisses cupcakes for dessert. Man, they are yummy!

After making 13 dozen assorted cupcakes this week I am not sure I would try this for awhile, but yours sound divine! Is the recipe posted anywhere by chance?

LP, do you mean the shrimp or the cupcakes? Either way, I'd have to send them to you via email or PM due to copyright issues.

I also have chili on the stove!
We are out of furnace fuel and cannot get more til tomorrow, so I'm trying to bake / cook all day! So far I've kept the house at 72. :)
2 batches of cookies and some french bread. We'll see how far we drop after the chili's done and decide if I need to bake some more!

My Tuesday night dinner group has changed to Thursdays, and tonight we're going to a local Japanese restaurant. It's too cold to have sushi, so I think I'm going to have shrimp tempura. Can't wait I don't know what DH is having - he's on his own.

Sorry if I confused you. It was the cupcakes and I don't want to cause a fuss with copyrights. If you have it typed out and want to send it by PM, that would be great, but don't go to any trouble. I have like a million recipes...they just sound sooooo good!

They are wonderful, Laurie. I have the recipe typed in a Word file, so no problem getting it to you. The recipe directs you to use mini muffin papers, but I didn't have any, so I just folded some parchment paper and cut little circles for the bottom of my mini muffin pans, then sprayed with nonstick cooking spray with flour. They popped right out. No problem.

I'll PM the recipe to you in a few minutes. Enjoy!
