Shannon - my cake was from a box too - but was not what I expected. My DH picked this up from Costco - I was expecting a chocolate type brownie on top with gooey fudge on the bottom. This was a dry cake-like texture on the bottom with white frosting. It said to cook for 20 minutes and let it sit 45 minutes before eating. Well, we ate it about 2 hours later (timing with dinner and the oven) so I don't know if that made a difference. It sounds like you liked yours, wish I could of tasted it!

Oh, Shannon, that does sound good and worth the calories. Mine was basically a chocolate cake with white frosting. I used to make a chocolate gooey thing years ago, I will have to dig through the cookbooks for the recipe.

I did meat loaf and mashed potatoes. I added garlic and cheese to the potatoes.
Got a phone call from my parents just as I was putting the loaf in the oven. Mentioned that I was making it. They had meat loaf too. Thought it was kinda funny.

i had some pasta (tri-colored rotini is my superfave) with an uh-oh sauce... the plan was to sautee the veggies, then add in the marinara to effectively deglaze the pan, like usual. only after i cooked the veggies all up (red onion, mushroom, carrots, baby spinach, garlic, oregano, rosemary) did i realize the pantry was EMPTY of red sauce. so i just deglazed with the SUPER red wine i was working on (solaz' tempranillo/cab '03, spicy & tannic, go get some), and tossed with shredded parmesan & some lebanese feta. yummy!

Paul Deen's gooey butter cakes are the best! I haven't tried the chocolate but the banana is awesome. I will have to try to the chocolate!

Last night I made a roasted chicken with lemon pepper, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and green beans and some home made gravy. That's going to be dinner tonight as well.
