Today I got my new point and shoot camera! It has been years since I have used one of these, so I was really excited to get it out of the box and play with it. I was pleasantly surprised by how well the pictures I took with it turned out, even with almost no practice. I won’t bore with the details, but I am so excited about my new toy!
It especially came in handy tonight to document my kitchen disaster. See.. I’ve been craving chocolate cake for a long time now. But I didn’t want to bake a whole cake because then I would…. eat a whole cake. So at target today I grabbed a package of, what else:
I’ve tried these before and it was really good! But then I saw this:
And I thought…
Chocolate… Kahlua… how can this possibly be bad??
That’s how. Betty lied, that Bitch. I mean I guess maybe Kahlua isn’t “irish cream”… but it’s the same basic taste. And how does it make it explode?? I tried microwaving it for another 30 seconds but it just got more bubbly and burnt smelling. Ew.
So much for chocolate cake. Lucky for me, I live about 50 yards (literally) from a Dairy Queen, so I was able to get my chocolate fix:
Not quite the warm chocolate cake I had anticipated. But a junior twist cone with sprinkles is probably half the calories of what I’d planned, so I guess it all worked out for the best.
But seriously… how do I screw this up? I have issues with microwave foods, clearly. I think from now on I should stick to homemade, or take-out.
