You guys, my brain is fried. There is a small pathetic puddle of gray jelly in between my ears, where my thinkbox should be. I can’t even summon the mental fortitude to wax rhapsodic about the cinnamon squares we made this week:
See, I’m writing this entry a few days in advance, because we’re going to Peru for a few weeks and I don’t want to leave my blog sad and outdated, so I’ve been planning on writing and dripping the TWD posts while I’m gone. However, I have also been working, and hosting my visiting brother, and shopping for the trip, and making endless (endless!) checklists and plans and contact lists, because I am a high-strung Type A monkey who can’t eat breakfast without a 5-bullet point plan of action. Long story short: I have been trying to write this entry all evening and have not been able to concentrate long enough to think of something clever to say.
Which is a shame, because this was a really nice cake. I love the combination of cinnamon and chocolate, and I thought the cinnamon swirl running through the middle was a really nice touch. The cake came together easily, and had a nice, moist crumb. I might have wanted a little ice cream on the side, but that’s really not the cake’s fault, now is it?
Sorry Dorie, it’s a nice cake, but it’s no match for Vacation Planning Brain. Cinnamon Squares: 0, Mush Brain: +1. Rematch next week!
