Lonely, Lazy Thursdays...

    On Thursdays, I see Scott for dinner and that is pretty much it. He then goes back to school for a night class 7-10pm.  Today one of my classes was canceled, which means I got home at 10:30am.  It is now 1:30pm, and I haven't gotten any homework done yet... BUT the kitchen is clean:)

It all started when I logged onto the book of face when I got home. I was looking for a message in my inbox and got distracted by that darn "news feed" that sucks me in so often.  I saw that it was my good friend Rachel's birthday! Since she is one of the few friends from Portland that live here in Rexy, I thought it would be a nice gesture to make something for her birthday.  I started by making a card. Here is the picture I decided to make for it. I was going for creepy and funny at the same time:)
Needless to say, I think she will be both delighted and scared.....
Well, I didn't stop there.  I decided I needed something to go with the card.  So, I hopped on to my personal fav, and some food blogs I like to try to find a good chocolate cake I could make for her.  I got distracted by homemade oreos and decided I would make those.  I forgot the sugar and didn't realize it till they were half-way done baking.... 

So with a newly lowered self-esteem and diminished pride, I whipped out some majorly fatty recipes. After about 3 hours of surfing the net, printing out a creepy card, and wasting 1/2 a cup of Hershey's cocoa powder, I picked this little gem to make: Chocolate Peanut Butter Icecream Pie. It took 20 minutes. 
I used 1 qt of Reeses icecream, 1/2 cup crunchy peanut butter, bits of a hershey bar- and creamed it all together in my freaking awesome kitchen aid.  Then I dumped it into a homemade chocolate graham cracker crust (so easy to make), and added whipped cream, chocolate sauce and peanuts on top.                     
Am I a good friend or what?

I'm such a good friend:) ... Until I realized, if Scott knows I made this and gave it away without even letting him sample it, I'm not sure he would ever talk to me again. This thing just SCREAMS Scott. 

So.... I'm giving her the card and a glass bottle of rootbeer we have in the fridge.... so lame.  I'm gonna go get started on homework now.
