We began our fast yesterday with a nice healthy serving of …… mud. Earlier that morning, Mitchell had gone to help paint a fellow ward member’s home and I thought a wonderful dessert should be waiting for him when he arrived home. Mitchell loves chocolate mud cake. I have made it once before and it turned out….. mediocre at best. How hard could it be? Honestly. Throw a bunch of ingredients into a crock pot and let it sit for several hours. I used a lot of luxurious ingredients … chocolate chips, a cake mix, a pudding mix, etc. It definitely looked unique, but there was no way that all those great ingredients could turn into something repulsive. I have a major sweet tooth … in fact I have a mouth full of sweet teeth … and I couldn’t even finish my bowl of mud. We even piled on ice cream and chocolate sauce thinking that we could right the wrong I had done. FAIL.
