Been a nice weekend. I've gotten three runs in- seven miles on Saturday, three yesterday, and three today. The Saturday one was the best- I went around noon today, and HOT. Wow. We also had company last night, which was really nice. Today we're going to my in-laws for a BBQ, so I need to finish making dessert.

Speaking of dessert, I have been on a real kick this weekend. Two of the desserts are from this cookbook: Chocolate Days. I made a bundt cake that promised you did not need frosting. For once, the promise was fulfilled (and this is from me, who will dip chocolate into chocolate ganache, okay?) The cake was super-moist and super rich and very tasty. I also am making a tri-chocolate pie, although it's really more like a cheesecake. It's got a chocolate cookie crust, milk chocolate cheesecake, and a white chocolate cheesecake mousse crown. And for last night, I made white chocolate and lemon mousse parfaits with strawberries. The lemon mousse is very strong and kind of overwhelms the white chocolate one, but aside from that, this dessert is amazing. I also think you could stretch this recipe to 10-12 servings by adding more berries, and think it would be delectable with blueberries or raspberries. (I wouldn't use a mix- I think it would be too many flavors, unless you just make one mousse.) If anyone wants the recipes for either chocolate dessert, let me know.

TV meme!

Day 16: Your guilty pleasure show

The Big Bang Theory. This is the closest I've got to a guilty pleasure show. I say that because I've seen many people point out various issues about the show that they don't like on a deeper level than "I just don't think it's funny." Personally, I'm not bothered by the show and I adore it, but I have become very, very aware (especially after sticking my foot in my mouth) that other people are, and that can make me feel awkward about confessing my love for it. So, yeah, it's the closest I've got to a guilty pleasure, I guess.

And because they're the ones going around my list right now:

Mini-DVD Meme: Pick a paragraph or any passage less than 500 words from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet of what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the fic, and anything else you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Icon meme: Pick one of my icons and I'll write you a ficlet based on said icon. (Although not my boys or the Dixie Chicks, please.)

Hope everyone has a good Memorial Day!
