Boston: almost check

That’s right, we have an almost-confirmed couchsurfing host in beantown. That means we now have 12 out of 17 nights taken care of, which equals: AWESOME. The host has to check with her roommates, so I told her to tell them I’d bake them each a pie which is also awesome because that means we get pie too.

Today I made Creme de la Cream Pie (coconut, banana, chocolate, peanut butter cream pie). It is currently chilling in the fridge. It tastes awesome. (just the parts I sampled in the making process.)

It’s Official

I have an officially scheduled date for the birth of the next Fat Monkey Dessert. This time we’re going with Creme de la Cream Pie. As in the best of cream pies in one amazing pie. Here’s the rundown.

Oreo crust ( I think)

Then a layer of coconut cream pie creamy goodness.

Next a layer of sliced bananas.

Then, I’ll add a layer of chocolate cream pie goodness with peanut butter.

And top it off with a drizzle of kahlua…hmm, no maybe just whipped cream and a dusting of toasted coconut and  then  a drizzle of kahlua. Yeah. Creme de la Cream Pie, I’ll be seeing you on Sunday.

Violet is quite possibly the cutest thing ever…

3 things:

first, that post about the “Fat Monkey” was the fruition of a dream. that dream being the submission of an original creation to thisiswhyyourefat.com. Just wanted to clarify, we aren’t actually wanton gluttons.

second, yesterday was Violet’s first birthday (as if you didn’t know, right?) and I have some pretty cute birthday pictures, but you’ll have to wait until i go get the camera from downstairs…tomorrow.

Third, yesterday on a walk, I saw a bumper sticker on a cop car that read, “My next police car will have a hemi.”
