Sick and bored

Journal

I have a sore throat today and feel like a big whiner. Yesterday I slept all afternoon, which resulted in a terrible night’s sleep. So today I’m watching a lot of t.v. while sitting on the floor so I don’t sack out. I also made lunch (tuna casserole) and tried a microwave cake recipe. (Some guy on Food Network was making microwave brownies, but I’m more of a cake person.) Anyway, it turned out ok. It was a little dry, so I guess I’d add more liquids or not zap it for the whole two minutes. If you want to try it, here’s a link.

The recipe is: In a microwave-safe container, mix these ingredients successively: (use a little whisk if you have it) 2 Tbs melted butter, 3 Tbs sugar, 1 egg, 2 Tbs cocoa powder, 2 Tbs flour, 1/8 tsp baking powder. Cover loosely and microwave 2 – 2 1/2 minutes. (I’d try under two minutes, and I added a splash of vanilla. I think I’d add a little milk or a little more butter to moisten it up.)

Quick, but a wee bit dry.

    I can make CAKE in the MICROWAVE?!? Why didn’t you show me this sooner? I’ve been living on microwaved food for two months, and all I know how to cook is frozen dinners and popcorn.

    […] Holy cow was it ever gross.  Many, many things went wrong here.  I didn’t mix the ingredients very well, it spilled all over the microwave, and as I write this I’m realizing that I only put in half the amount of sugar it called for (stupid Lauren).  Maybe I should just go to bed.  (Didn’t I try this once before?)
