I have been so busy lately!! I just haven't had much time to write. Recently I made a Boston Cream Pie, which actually is a cake. A lady had called and asked us at work if we make it and Sharen told me about it the next day and asked me to make one and sell it. So I made the cake Monday, and put it together this morning. I was working on the chocolate frosting when Sharen called me and needed me to make brown rice, her dog was sick and someone told her to feed her brown rice. So of course I would say yes, while I am up to my elbows in custard filling and chocolate frosting. I had also promised to make fresh salsa to the lady who wanted the cake made. So that still had to be made. I hurriedly cleaned up my mess, put together the cake while I had the rice cooking in the pot. And on top of this, I had laundry in the the dryer! Somehow I managed to get the cake down to the store (I walked) and not drop it or fall flat on my face. And it is all in one piece and by now probably in the family's stomachs. I did enjoy making the Boston Cream Pie (Cake) and hope to make another one soon, but this time for ME and nobody else!!!(I might share some on a Friday night, maybe ;) ) It smelled like an ├ęclair or a cream puff.
Well now I have to make dinner. Tonight is vegetarian dinner night, so I am making broccoli soup.

Wow! You had your hands even more than "full", it sounds like! haha, it sounds like me, though, too. I love doing cooking/baking but sometimes I volunteer for more than is actually possible! Then...the fun comes! ;) But after all the hury.. I want to do it all over again! haha

I know what you mean! I want to make another cake. It was so much fun! Although I can't say I want to be doing the laundry, salsa and brown rice at the same as the cake again! At least not on a tight schedule like that! If I didn't have to go to work, it would be no problem.
