Friday Night Fun

We had a great night tonight. I was feeling well enough to hang out and help make dinner. RiekAlt kitchen! Woo!! We made shrimp fettuccine alfredo with our homemade alfredo sauce that is just to die for. The secret is the nutmeg! Then we sat around drinking and chatting for hours. Sometimes we cried, but a lot of times we laughed. It was lovely and so much needed. I love him so incredibly much, and I’ve been so blessed to spend the last ten years with him. (Almost 11…holy shit!!)

Happy weekend! Get it!

good vibes only

Being silly (and maybe a little drunk):

We did a seafood bake for dinner. A Martha Stewart recipe. It was very tasty.

Random pretty flower from my most recent bouquet:

I raided D’s library:

Played around with my hair:

Tried on my new shirt:


We watched Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind tonight. I love that movie. D mentioned earlier in the night that he never really saw it, because he was fucking around with his (ex)gf the first time around so he wasn’t paying attention. (That trashy Trumper whore Beth πŸ™„) This time we did the fucking around first, but then he fell asleep during the movie. πŸ˜‚

To be fair, we’ve had a lot to drink, and we started around 3:30, when D asked me to quit working and have a drink because he had news, and it was really good news!! I can’t talk about it yet, but squeeeeeeeeeee.

It’s 1:30 am now. We’re in bed. Everyone is asleep but me. I kind of like this time of night now that my anxiety is under control.

I made a cake.

From scratch.

I haven’t done that since I was a teenager; back when I used to bake all the time with my grandmother.

I’m obviously out of practice. I’m not sure if it was the recipe, the substitution I had to make, or if I overcooked the cake, but it came out a bit dry.

Decorating is not my strength either – lol – but I’m going to keep practicing and try to get better. Why not? It’s not like I can leave the house.

I had a big slice for breakfast, because I have fucking cancer, and it sucks, so why the fuck not? Yolo and all that shit.

I’m not gonna lie, I’m on the struggle bus right now.

chocolate lava mug cake

I love cake, so I’m a bit of a mug cake whore, because it’s the fastest and easiest way to cure my cake cravings. I usually have mug cake packs on hand – the ones where you just add water and then microwave. Tonight, however, I decided to make my own, and it’s so good I could cry!

The deets:

Melt two tbsp of butter in a coffee mug. Add water (2 tbsp), vanilla (1/4 tsp) and a pinch of salt. Stir.

Add 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup of flour, and 2 tbsp of cocoa powder. Stir until smooth. Microwave for 40 to 50 seconds.

This is extremely rich and chocolatey.

Check out my cute STL mug:

And the cake too, of course:
