Ugh. The backhoe was removed today, and presumably they are working on smoothing out the dirt this weekend...I still have to wonder why they couldn't find anywhere else to dump this dirt. :(
In other news, in the paper yesterday a report about local golf club proposing to the State that they trap a majority of the elk herd wreaking havoc on their links and relocate them. The State's response: don't be idiots, no.
In other, other news, I made a batch of cupcakes for a colleague, whose church is doing a picnic bake auction. I made dark chocolate cupcakes, sinking a mini peanut butter cup in the middle of them prior to baking, then piped on peanut butter cream cheese frosting. I wanted to try one a LOT. The cupcakes themselves were vegan and they looked gorgeous:
( Hello, beautiful )
So, yeah, I am still baking. I've just failed to share pictures and recipes lately. :) With these, I so wanted to crack into one to make sure the PB cup didn't melt into the cake. I froze them for a short while, but didn't have time for them to get solid. Oh well. Even without them, I am confident the cakes taste great.
