Shrek took me to one of our favorite restaurants for coffee and dessert, he had a chocolate mousse and I had a "Dim Sum" of Tiramisu and Raspberry Mousse/Pane Cotta. Then we wandered into Oil & Vinegar and tasted our way around the shop, settling on Meyer Lemon Marmalade, a syrupy Aceto Balsamico di Modena and the real kicker...Mango Pulp Vinegar, if you can find this, BUY IT!!!

Lastly, the darned Ogre took me into the jewelry store and bought me a sparkly. Then we came home for the meal I had set to cooking.

Black bottom cupcakes are chocolate cake batter with a dollop of cream cheese-chocolate chips in the center. Bake. Eat. Have another one.

This recipe calls for miniature choc chips, otherwise it is the recipe we use.
I would never use Miniature chocolate Anything.

For a chocolate moose, you just use a bigger bowl.

Shrek sounds like a winner today. Better hang on to him.

Sounds good p.a.g. Back home I used to be able to buy cod cheeks. Those always impressed me as poor man's scallops. They were yummy! Now I live in New England and have yet to see a cod cheek to save my life! I think the fishermen save that part for themselves...

Kayelle - That is what the package said... boneless rib eye steaks. Usually don't get boneless and pre-packaged steaks but these were on a SELL TODAY sticker sale. Picked up all they had and tossed em into the freezer.

That it is Katie! I grew up with that pattern. Years ago when I went away to grad school my Mom gave me a few pieces to take with me. Since then have been slowly building up my set as I find pieces in thrift stores. My Grandmother recently gave me all her big serving platters and bowls for the set that she had.

I wish I'd known that when I closed our business. I could've practically finished out your set. I had about a full service for 8 of all pieces. It's a gentle, restful pattern and has been around for a long time.

Hey, I understand it's hard to pass up SELL TODAY stickers Dave! I'm used to them looking like a slice of prime rib. The bone on mine is always gifted to the darling little dog who lives across the street.

Yummy! I think I'll add tater tots to the grocery list.
