Sometimes there just isn't enough time in the day to make a proper Sunday supper. Today was one of those days. Between all the household chores and a house full of guests (the kind that I don't feed), there was just barely enough time to make our weekly treat. Dinner was a late, rushed and virtually pre-packaged meal.
So I present: Chicken Alfredo from not really scratch and a totally from scratch Busy Day Chocolate cake with Oozey Chocolate Glaze.
For the glaze:
Two squares semi-sweet baker's chocolate...
...all chopped up.
3/4 cup powdered sugar and 1.5 tsp butter.
Melt the butter and chocolate over low heat...
Remove from heat then add powdered sugar and mix it all up.
Add about 2 tbs of hot water (more or less depending on desired consistency)
Slather it all over the cake.
Talk about pretty and shiny!
I added sugar crystals for decoration.
Moist and picture perfect!
And of course, quickly devour because *Someone* might have finished his piece while you were taking pictures and start eyeing your piece!!
