Beans Don't Fry In the Kitchen....

Beans don't burn on the griiillll......

Yeah, that totally has nothin' to do with this post, but I woke up at like 6 o'clock Saturday mornin' (which is when I initially started writin' this, but my internet kept shittin' out on me!) and had that Sinead O'Connor song "Nothing Compares to You" stuck in my head. I laid in bed until just before 7 singin' the same shit over and over and over....

It's been seeevvven hours and fifteen days since you took your love away
I go out ever-ry night and sleep all daaa-ay
Since you took your love away
Since you've been gone I can do whatever I waa-aaa-aaant

I can see whomever I choose

I can eat my dinner in a fancy restaaa-aaa-aaaaurant, but nothin'....I said nothin' can take away these bluuuuuuuuuues
'Cuz nothin' compares Nothin' compares to yeeeeewwwwww.

That song was me and my first boyfriend's "song" and it's one of my all time favorite songs, but I didn't particularly wanna be singin' that song all day.....so I started singin' Beans don't fry in the kitchen, burns don't burn on the grilllll...took a whole lotta tryin' just to get up that hillllll......

.....and then I got outta bed and ate another pancake and bacon cupcake.


Two words.....HEA-VEN. More than you can possibly imagine. I've promised the recipe so here it is.....

You'll need to make sure you have the followin' stuff and if you ain't got it, you gotta get it:

Cupcake tin (this recipe makes 24 cupcakes)
Cupcake Liners

1 pack of bacon

Cupcakes:
Box of Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe Butter Recipe Yellow cake mix....which requires:
3 Eggs
1/2 c. softened butter
2/3 c. water

For Frosting:
2 Tblsp. softened butter
2 Tblsp. maple syrup (like Ain'tcha Mama....you don't need anything fancy)
1 1/2 c. powdered sugar

1. Lay out butter so it can come up to room temperature
2. Preheat oven according to box (depends on what kinda pan you use)
3. Put liners in cupcake tin
4. Cook bacon and once cooled, cut up into pieces
5. Mix cake according to the box and stir in 3/4 of the bacon
6. Bake according to box

While cupcakes are baking, make frosting:

1. In a medium sized bowl, beat butter (has to be room temp!) and maple sugar with mixer until well blended
2. Gradually add in the powdered sugar

It doesn't look like it makes much, but it's the PERFECT amount for 24 cupcakes!

Once cupcakes have finished baking, pull them out and let them cool COMPLETELY on a cooling rack prior to frosting.

Once they've TOTALLY cooled, frost them bad boys and top with bacon sprinkles....yes....I said bacon sprinkles!

Now, go do it and try not to eat at least a half dozen of 'em at once!


...and just so's ya know, you go to to Publix and buy their cupcake holders for like .50 a piece. Other store may do it to, but I know Publix does.

Where I'm At

I have no internet access at work and it's killin' me. It's nuts how hooked on that shit I am! I'm used to havin' Facebook open all day.....chattin' with friends, lookin' at all the stupid shit posted.....no mas. One day, I'm gonna go missin' and my new co-workers are gonna find me huddled in a corner rockin' back and forth droolin' on myself mumblin' somethin' about Facebook destroyin' my life. I hope they just put me outta my misery right then and there.......

Unfortunately, my blog's gonna take the biggest hit. I've always blogged from from work. It was nice and quiet and I could THINK which is somethin' that's dang near impossible to do at home. This whole havin' a husband and kids thing doesn't really afford me the time or the quiet I need to write.

Today though I decided I don't really care about all those hours of Facebook updates. They were amusing at work, but once I'm at home, ehhh...…
