Dessert, Anyone?

When OC comes home tonight he is apt to find me sweeter than usual. And stickier than usual, as well. I have a new mixer. The eject beaters button on my new mixer is where the power slide was on my old mixer, and vice versa. That means that tonight after I mixed up a batch of extra thick, dark chocolate brownies and attempted to remove the beaters from the machine, I instead splattered myself, the counter, the cupboards and the floor with chocolate batter.

I had chocolate measles; chocolate polka dot glasses; a chocolate striped shirt; chocolate counter tops; chocolate cupboards and chocolate Pergo. Thankfully, I have 12 foot ceilings. If there is any chocolate up there, I can’t see it. And if I can’t see it, it isn’t there.

My original plan was to offer OC brownies and Macadamia nut ice cream for dessert. Now I am thinking I might just give him a cupboard door to lick.

He Said: she cleaned it up nicely. If she hadn’t told me, I never would have noticed. Except for the smell. OK, the aroma. When did “smell” always have to be bad news? It’s the same nose. Pass the brownies, Hon.



  1. As ever you create wonderful images.

  2. I wouldn’t mind a cabinet door to lick.

  3. i get some funny images out of this 🙂

  4. Quilly… THIS is why we have a dog! Makes clean-up a SNAP! 🙂

  5. Bazza — glad to share. Just wish I had a pic of my face!

    Nessa — okay, but I washed them in Lysol kitchen cleaner …..

    Polona — then I did my job.

    Melli — gross!

  6. I’m here from another blog….I don’t recall ever visiting before, but my memory is quit lax at times too!!

    I LOVE the descriptive words —especially the chocolate measle part. That made me laugh. I love laughter.

    But wait….did you tell us how the brownies tasted? I have been told to resist all things chocolate, but boy I can sure READ about the taste, right?

    Nice to meet you. Hope you can drop by sometime when you can find time.

  7. DARN!! my post above====”quit” means QUITE! Quite lax. keyboard error. keyboard…I blame it on the keyboard.

  8. Anni — Welcome. I blame all my typos on the keyboard, too. Darn thing is often very contrary about spelling. Oh — and the brownies were thick and chewy and delicious. Very rich. Very chocolate. Very yum.

  9. I’m laughing out loud. So much so that I don’t want to use LOL.

    I’d lick the cabinet doors. Heck, we’re talkin’ ’bout CHOCOLATE!!!

    I once made an error in the kitchen that resulted in split pea soup on everything, and I don’t have 12 foot ceilings. Chocolate I can handle. Pea soup, not so much.

  10. TLP — was it a blender error? The lumps can stay in my split pea soup. I can handle a few lumps in my soup bowl much better then I can handle washing them off the wall.

  11. I also live by the rule if I cannot see it, it isn’t there….for a blind person there must be a ton of dust bunnies in my house!!!!

  12. Quilly, you were covered in chocolate. But you make it sound like some kind of a problem!?! Chocolate. Covered in it! What’s the problem???

  13. Lori — as long as they aren’t rabid you’ll be just fine.

    Morgan — I’d be much happier if the chocolate didn’t attract lint, dirt, flies, mice and other unsavory creatures.

  14. No, not a blender error. I have a special Tupperware bowl that’s made for use with blenders. It has a lid with an opening for the blades. No splatter ever.

    I was warming pea soup in the microwave. I had it covered of course. When I took it out of the microwave, and removed the cover, it exploded! Peas everywhere. Burned my arm a bit. But peas on the ceiling was the worst.

  15. TLP — I want that bowl! And I had a baked potato do that exploding thing once. I imagine it was much easier to clean up then pea soup.
