March

March is a really busy month for me; my husband and children all had birthdays this month! Now my kids have different Spring Breaks, too, so I’ve tried to make their favorite foods while they’re at home. At work, I have two co-workers who have younger children, and they both took off the week of Spring Break. That left me to answer to any pressing issues and picking up slack where needed. It made for a very busy month. I didn’t get to work too much on my knitting, but thought I would post a picture today to show the progress I did make.

This is the back. I have about 4 more inches of this to do to complete the length of the armholes, which start after the second section of color work.  I’m not tired of this project yet!

I had bought some Baker’s unsweetened chocolate squares a few weeks ago because I knew I wanted to make Molten Lava Cakes at some point while my kids were home. The four of us have gone on two Carnival Cruises in the past, and the sit-down dinner was always a highlight of the day. Not only was the food delicious, but, in addition to each night’s planned desserts, the lava cake was offered as a standard menu option. We have since been in love with these! I baked them for 12 minutes and the consistency was perfect; cake around the outside with a warm chocolatey melted middle. Top your cake with some  vanilla ice cream to offset the not-too-sweet chocolate flavor. You have to try this!!

Have a lovely Easter weekend : )
