The old gray goose is dead.
Should explain the .... silence .... around here.
And there's this.
And yeah, I know, they put it on the wrong bun. But still. It's back! It's back! The bitch is back! Stone cold sober as a matter of, uhm, sorry. That's another story, for another day. Something about that processed pork patty just lights my fire. And that's a fact.

Lovely, dear Ikea,
From your flat packs to your anchovy treat,
There's nothing half so sweet,
As Ikea, Ikea, I-keet.
Oh, there are things of wonder,
Of which men like to sing.
There are pretty sunsets and birds upon the wing,
But of the joys of nature,
None truly can compare,
With Ikea, Ikea, she of wonders beyond compare.
And Swedish meatballs.
Okay, I totally ripped that off from Barney Fife. Don't judge me. I've been sick.

I was so excited to make this cake. Only THREE freakin' ingredients. THREE! One of which would help deplete the excessive chocolate stores I'm still hoarding. All THREE of which I. already. owned. Do you know how rare this is? Well, it's ... rare.
But then. Then .... Just when I could finally see March comin' around the corner February reached up and bitchslapped me again.
Sick. Sick. Sick.
I whined. And coughed. And brought up that 'someone' bought me generic orange juice when it was the ooooooonnnnnnlllllly thing I could even bear to think about drinking. And He made the cake. And I didn't criticize. Much. I opted not to push my luck on the whole ice cream thing.
So here's the cake. It tastes EXACTLY like chocolate. Unfortunately this particular cake could have been a bit overcooked. And -might- have teensy bits of scrambled egg in it. But still - tastes EXACTLY like chocolate. Also, apparently we don't have any "parchment circles". But still. Tastes EXACTLY like chocolate. And plays nicely with ice cream.
You'll do things differently when you make it.
The February 2009 challenge is hosted by Wendy of WMPE's blog and Dharm of Dad ~ Baker & Chef.
We have chosen a Chocolate Valentino cake by Chef Wan; a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Dharm and a Vanilla Ice Cream recipe from Wendy as the challenge.
