Ok,I usually do not drink wine at 11 am, but I was the daughter-in-law who kind of got stuck with making dinner and dessert for my father-in-law's 75th birthday this weekend. I got brownie points from the in-laws because chips and dip was brought by the others. Ca-ching!! I'll get to the frosting review in a sec. Made 40 marinade teriyaki chicken legs, Fried Rice Restaurant style, and a devil's food chocolate cake with the Creamy Chocolate Frosting. Chicken legs were looking great in the oven, thank God! I have a way of making a HUGE mess in the kitchen when I'm hurried and making food for a big crowd. Did I mention that only half the people showed? Fried Rice managed to get done. Ok, after spilled rice, scrambled eggs, peas & carrots on floor, I ended up with a gallon of it. I did mention that half the relatives were a no show? The wine? Husband started to pour a glass. I eyed the clock and said it was still morning. He said that somewhere in the world it was already afternoon. No argument there! Ok, the frosting. Four month old hand mixer died. Five sips of wine. Mixer in garbage can. Transfer ingredients to Kitchen-Aid. Accidentally caught sweater sleeve on speed lever. Ever see powdered sugar and cocoa fly at the speed of a Maserati? Reminded myself that it was Sunday and decided not to cuss out-loud. I think. FYI: God's name was not involved. A few more sips of wine. Half-half cream & some butter shortening was used. Everyone lived--including me.
