#Who's Who of B and B

You can have your cake . . . but can you eat it?

May 17, 2017

So we had been out of town visiting the "bride-to-be" in Seattle and I hadn't cooked for several days.  And remember how My Mr. B likes something sweet with his morning coffee?  Well, being the good wife that I am, I decided to make him a German Chocolate Cake.  It just happens to be my favorite cake, but I really was making it for him!!

Side note here:  It's also Jay Osmond's favorite cake.  Back in the day I had a crush on Jay Osmond and when I found out his birthday was exactly one month before mine and his favorite cake is German Chocolate, I would have one on his birthday and one on my birthday.  And his birthday is actually/exactly 11 months after mine - so I'm older than him.  Older than Jay Osmond, that is.  Come to think of it, I'm a month older than My Mr. B.  Does that make me a cougar?

But I digress.  So I made this beautiful cake.  I don't really eat dessert after supper (probably because I eat it all day before supper), but decided to cut myself and My Mr. B a piece.  After cutting the cake, I went to move the cake and dropped that baby on the floor.  I said maybe one or two curse words (sorry about that).  My Mr. B said, "Just put it back on the cake plate, it's okay."  You know, five second rule and all.  So that's what I did.

Didn't get a picture of it on the bare floor - trying to get it back on the plate within 5 seconds

So he has been eating it with his morning coffee.  Me - not really.  I decided that moment was a good time to start my diet before I start looking for my Mother of the Bride dress.

And just so you know, I have conferred with a couple of qualified medical experts, and the five second rule is now the 30 minute rule.  Really, if it's a flat surface and a bunch of other stuff - but I'm still not going to eat the cake.

Thanks for letting me vent.  Come on over for a visit.  I promise I won't make you eat any cake, but I will share my carrots and celery with you.  And let's not say anything to My Mr. B about the whole Jay Osmond thing, because that was before I met My Mr. B.


  1. You know we believe in that rule! (And it was great, by the way!!!)
