pride goes before a fall

This weekend we enjoyed a lovely couples dinner party at one of our neighbors, (while our kids were being watched at another neighbors) and we were treated to an amazing chocolate cake, from the pioneer women. It was so amazing i decided i couldn't go more than a day without making it. So Sunday we went to the store and bought all the ingredients, and whipped up the best sheet cake ever. All the while i was telling myself things like, "wow, you are going to blow away your co-workers with this one.... wow, this is so amazing and good, they will all want the recipe......" and all sorts of other vain notions. Aidan and i licked the bowl, mmmm... and enjoyed a warm piece, at which point i started to not feel so hot, but decided to dig in anyway........ Maybe it was just too rich for me.

To make a long story short i put Aidan to bed and ended up with the stomach flu, so i can guarantee that i won't be making anything chocolate for anyone for a loooong time. So if you are looking for a good chocolate cake recipe, head over to the pioneer women website, because i will probably never make it again. Although Aidan might be able to tell you how good it was!
