Lovely little party tonight

Some friends had a gathering at their place. I made lava cakes for everyone in their kitchen, and set a dishtowel on fire. How was your day? :)

"and set a dishtowel on fire."

You tried to incorporate real lava into the recipe didn't you? You're so creative.

Now that's the mark of a good friend, to put the best possible construction on my actions. :)

But it was entirely an accident; I think the dishtowel was not intended for use as a hot pad and couldn't withstand the super-hot electric heating element in the oven. I used the towel to take the lava cakes out of the oven, and then smelled something burning and wondered what was wrong. The husband of the household wandered by and gasped as he noticed that the towel-- which I was still holding-- was on fire! I quickly dumped it in the sink.

I'm sorry but I'm laughing.
Speaking of chocolate, I just got a box of Godiva chocolate from my mom - truffles, bars, 'biscuits', super-dark 85% cocoa squares, so good!!!! :D~

Oh good, I'm glad you've received sweets-- I was feeling guilty about not being able to teleport cookies to you. :)
