Let me give you two reasons that my Monday is a good one.
#1 - the Chi!
I have crazy, wavy hair and it is VERY necessary for me to use a straightening iron. But I have always just bought the cheap kind sold at Wal-Mart while secretly coveting a Chi. I never wanted to break down and buy one - however my current iron is on it's last breath and this is something I use every day - I really should have a quality iron and I heard it makes all the difference. Sister - let me testify! We were at Sam's yesterday and there it was - a Sam's special buy. I thought about it long and hard and Scott said to get it if it would make me feel better. I knew good hair will always make me feel better. So I got it and after I used it today - I ran in and kissed him - because Oh my goodness - my hair is so much smoother and straighter and so salon like! :-) LOVE IT! LOVE IT!
#2 - these cupcakes.
Now I got this off of somebody's blog I read recently but for the life of me - I could not find it again. So if you did this - PLEASE let me know so I can give you credit.
Today is my boss' birthday so I wanted to make a little office treat. I promise this is not turning into a recipe blog but I have just had a lot of reasons to cook lately. And this is too good not to share. (and it didn't even come from Paula Deen)
Then bake for 18-20 minutes at 350 and when cooled - top with the above - chocolate frosting and mini morsels.
I decided to forget the morsels because it almost seemed like TOO much chocolate (as if there could be such a thing). You will notice there are only 11 cupcakes on that platter. I HAD to test taste. I wouldn't want to give out something bad. Oh - it was NOT bad, not bad at all!!! It was DELICIOUS!
This recipe makes 24 cupcakes but there are only 7 people in my office this week so that would be crazy. I'm saving the batter and making them later this week for something else.
