In our teenage and early twenty-something years, we used to have Redskins' parties and watch the game. (I much rathered eating and socializing than watching the game. In trouble now!) Sometimes, mom would make a chocolate refrigerator cake, which we lovingly named The Hog Log, in honor of the Redskins' offensive line, the Hogs.
I haven't made this thing in years! And it's so easy and tastes like a big ol' Oreo cake, but not as sweet. I found some chocolate-mint wafers and stacked them as the first two layers before the darker chocolate ones. Yum.
Voila. I've been promising the teenager's GF that I was going to make one. Promises, promises. But finally, one is chilling in the fridge waiting for their arrival tomorrow sometime. Yay. We have a Cherry Blossom Festival to go to. Another pang in my heart for that, also. Of course, the Cherry Blossom Parade in DC is one of the highlights of the year. (I've never, ever been to one, as it's also the busiest day for the family photography business at the Capitol building--I always had to work!!) I can't wait to see what little ol' Nashvul has in store for us. Hope to get lots of pics tomorrow!
Speaking of tomorrow, the kid (sniffle) is going to his Junior Prom. Sniffle. He has his tux, sniffle, and I'm going to make his boutonniere out of Lily of the Valley from our garden. They remind me of mom and her sister, Mary. Sniffle. Will take pictures of how that turns out! Never made one before, but how difficult can it be? Truly. Sniffle.
