trip of the month: clemson!
the most exciting 25 seconds in college football
clemson 35 - florida state 30
i took josh to his first clemson football game and it was an exciting one. clemson had recently broken into the top 25, and it's not unusual for them to choke and slide back out of the polls. it didn't happen for this game - we took the lead early on and just held on in the final moments to win.
and yes, they lower the goal posts after a game to prevent students from tearing them down. they had to upgrade those shortly after we beat #3 ranked florida state my sophomore year.
i tried my hand at making carrot cake (cupcakes and a 'loaf') from scratch for one of the guys at work. i need to work on my presentation, but they tasted moist and delicious.
i overloaded the cupcake wrappers and they exploded in the oven
delicious cream cheese icing - only 4 ingredients!
(1 box cream cheese, 1.5 sticks butter, 1 box powdered sugar, 1 tsp vanilla)
carrot cake "loaf"
after wrestling with the cupcakes, i poured the rest of the batter in a loaf sized pan to save time and energy. i'm not sure why it sank so much in the middle? perhaps you more expert bakers could help explain this. it worked out though, i did not mind the ratio of icing to cake.
later in the month, i made "tiger tails" for a goody (/food grazing) day at work. very easy to make and it appears well-liked as there were only two left (i couldn't eat them, so i can't vouch for how good they were/weren't). these would be great for tailgating - just use your team's colors, and don't call them tiger tails. unless you're lsu or auburn. (speaking of, how 'bout that trifecta of tiger victories on saturday?)
