chillin' and illin'


B
ronchitis can hit you at anytime and I got sucker punched by that beotch two days ago, so rather than make everyone I come in contact with sick I opted not to sneeze on their food and I have been out of commission lately.



By out of commission I mean I have been throwing things together in big pans and vats and letting them do their thing without much influence from me, no stirring no tasting no belaboring the point. Some baby eggplants some purple, red and yukon fingerling potatoes and onions roast together with some chicken making its own delicious sauce and sides all at the same time. You ask "how do I keep my girlish figure" well this is how I stay the lean mean fightin' machine that I am today.



Good mix of carbs and proteins combined with toasted coconut banana cake that was soaked in vanilla flavored rum (remember I made that way back in January, well I poured the whole thing into this cake) and frosted it with a mascarpone, banana and blood orange cream.



This behemouth is over 3 feet tall. Well thats a stretch but it is a big un'. I went crazy after making a couple loaves of banana nut bread and I thought to myself "this can't be all, there has to be more" so the birth of this cake was manifested and I know what you are thinking, "how did I frost it so perfectly" its just one of my knacks.



Just substitute "mascarpone" every time you hear "my sharona" and you too will have the knack. Nirvana had the knack.





Wanna see it? Here it is!

You are my hero making sky scraper banana nut bread even though you're poorly! The idea with a full meal making itself in the oven, thats my kind of thing! Remember honey in your tea.

Beth said...

beth: tea and toast? do I have to?

dawn: 4 layers - two loaves cut in half after soaking in homemade vanilla flavoring...

Jenn said...

Hope you're feeling better.

You inspired me the other day to try and make my own Banana nut bread. I posted my result today on my blog. It turned out alright for my first time. Definitely a keeper. That cake looks fantastic too, but I'll just stick to the regular single loaf.

btw.. My Sharona. Probably one of my favorite songs ever. I used to know how to play it on the guitar.

Patty Gironda said...

buffalodick said...

It doesn't have that pronounced mushroomy flavor either- probably designed for middle American taste buds..
