I made hubs watch Dancing With the Stars last night. Since he's retired, I've dragged him into my reality television pergatory. He moans and groans but never gets up to go watch one of the other kazillion tv's in the house, so he secretly must love it.
So, that Pussycat chick, Nicole starts dancing.....and pardon me for a minute while I rant, but puhleeze, is it really fair? Isn't this girl like a professional dancer??? How can psycho Kate, (I do miss her crazy angry pineapple haircut) compete with her? And, yes, I agree that Pamela Anderson is also a professional dancer, but I've never once seen a pole used on DWTS so I don't count her as having an advantage.
Anyhoo, back to Nicole. So in the middle of her dance, hubs says, "How can you criticize that performance?" Me..."You're watching her performance?" Hubs...."Yeah, both of them." Typical.
This week's TWD selection was the Coconut Tea Cake. I seriously thought about skipping this because between Barefoot Bloggers and TWD, there seems to have been a lot of coconut selections recently, and not many people I usually pawn these things off on are coconut fans. But, I had nothing better to do, so I decided to make the cake into cupcakes. And I went with the lime "playing around" option.
When they came out of the oven, they looked so plain and lonely, so I made a glaze with some powdered sugar, a little key lime juice and well, the Malibu Rum was sitting there staring at me so.....
These were just ok for me. They were moist and coconuty, but nothing about them blew my socks off. Thanks to Carmen of Carmen Cooks for hosting this week. Make sure you check her blog for the recipe. Her cake looks beautiful, btw!
