Why I Had Children, and Also Why I Have a Delicious Account

October 28, 2008 @ 7:21 pm | Filed under:

Today my daughters surprised me with a chocolate cake in a mug, which they heard about from a Delicious link (no pun intended, but it fits) I posted right here on this blog. The cake included 78 chocolate chips. They counted. It was heavenly: warm and melty, and even though I shared bites all around, they insisted that I should get the lion’s share, and I was stuffed afterward. Oh my goodness.

And they even cleaned up the kitchen afterward. Someone give those kids a raise.

    Those good, good kids.
    My Boy came sleepily downstairs this evening and asked me – while I shuffling tiredly around the kitchen – if I would like him to help me with whatever I was doing. Aw.

    My fourteen year old son made the cake-in-the-mug this week. He said he would remember it for his bachelor-living-in-an-apartment-days ahead. I told him I hope those days are a long way off…..and when they come I hope he comes home for chocolate cake from scratch instead!

    LOVE this! My boys wanted to know if I was making up the part about the sweet homeschooled children who made their mom some and cleaned up afterwards.

    Come see my chemistry tie-in on GeekDad (http://blog.wired.com/geekdad/2008/11/chocolate-cake.html) and the How-to Wiki I wrote elsewhere on Wired.com (http://howto.wired.com/wiki/Make_Cake_in_a_Mug). I got it to work with hot chocolate mix (more geek-friendly), and found a buncha other cake-in-a-mug links.

    But had to cut back after 4 in 4 days.
