Last link love of the year

We were both on vacation in cold places visiting with family without a whole lot of internet access/time.  #1 didn’t do any political calls/faxes/protests/etc,. but she did pick a local candidate from the #Five4Her hashtag and donated.  Is there a candidate you’d like to support?  Give 5 minutes, dollars, or calls for her campaign!  If you’re on twitter or facebook, let other people know you did and tell them why and where they can too.  2018 is going to be the year that we take back our government, but it’s going to take a lot of activism, way more than I have ever done in my entire life, to get that to happen.  Let’s start fighting now.

DC1 said zie wanted a peanut butter chocolate cake.  It’s interesting how there are about a bazillion versions of exactly the same cake (3 layer chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting made from mixing peanut butter, powdered sugar, and a cream of some kind, then dripping chocolate over the top, accenting with reeses peanut butter cups) by different home-baking bloggers that all say they invented the cake to make their child happy.  I suspect they’re actually all rip-offs of the smitten kitchen’s recipe, which she notes she has modified from an actual cookbook because she’s a big-time food-blogger and gives credit.  We didn’t choose any of those because we thought this one from Laughing Spatula looked a lot simpler and easier to make and who can resist that layer of peanut butter under the layer of chocolate ganache?  I know I can’t.  We went with a 9×13 version.  [Update:  the “ganache” had too much liquid in it and never solidified (I added cocoa powder and powdered sugar but it was still pretty soupy)– if you make it, use less cream.]

    Well I don’t know about anyone else but the guillotine joke made me laugh. Happy New Year!

    Happy New Year! I plan to write more about money stuff this year. I’ve realized that as a single woman, I’m doing an amazing job supporting my current and future self. So many bloggers who write about PF topics are in two-income households, and consequently have a different experience with money.
