I think this recipe falls under the category of “man food.” Every week Kelly and I ask Cliff if there is anything he would like us to make for the blog. If it weren’t for his input it would pretty much be cake, cookies, and cupcakes every day. Sometimes he has some good ideas and sometimes I think his ideas are not original enough. Last week he suggested pizza burgers. Now, I like pizza burgers just as much as the next person but they are kind of boring. Doesn’t everyone know how to make a pizza burger? Is it really that creative of an idea? Do people really need a recipe for a pizza burger? After doing a little research, I found out that the answer was: people do not know how to make pizza burgers. The google results I found left a lot to be desired. So, the concept of a pizza burger may not be the most original idea ever but it seems like the world needed another recipe for pizza burgers.
We need to buy those umbrellas that go in fun drinks at Mexican restaurants. I think that’s the finishing touch missing from our Watermelon Lemonade. Well that and alcohol. And maybe a beach.
I am off of work today. I am on summer vacation aka – maternity leave. Oh, you didn’t know I was pregnant? Then I guess you don’t follow us on Facebook. I look forward to sleeping in, laying by the pool, and baking cupcakes all summer. Why are you laughing? In all seriousness, I was due, oh about 4 days ago, so we should be welcoming a baby any time now. While we wait, I am just going to lay on the couch, read, and maybe make those cupcakes. Cliff has a fun nursery decorating post coming up soon. I like to call him Martha Stewart; he is so crafty! So, if we disappear sometime next week, now you will know why.
On Tuesday, I started a new job and I’m really excited about it. It’s similar to my previous position (won’t bore you with details) but it’s a new opportunity and I’m looking forward to bigger and better things. But…let me tell you the real reason I’m so excited.
As Kelly mentioned yesterday we are doing mug cakes all week. We love them and our readers love them, so its a win for everyone! Mug cakes are actually pretty genius for a couple of reasons. First, 3 minutes or less? How can you go wrong? It is actually pretty amazing to me that this is even possible. Secondly, portion control! I can’t tell you how many times I have made a cake and intended to bring it to work or to friends but then decided it is too delicious to share and ended up eating the whole thing myself. No self control at all. With mug cakes I get my mug full of cake and it is gone. No chance of going back for seconds, thirds, fourths. But then again, see reason #1. Only 3 minutes and I can have another. So I guess what I am saying is mug cakes are very, very bad. In the best way. Makes perfect sense, right?
