Company Girl Coffee

Hi Company Girls! Do you miss Rachel Anne's Small Things? I know I do! She keeps me motivated. But everyone deserves a break, and it looks like she's been busy with her mural. It's looking great!

I think I redeemed myself from the carrot cake disaster... at least somewhat. I made a simple yellow cake then I made the frosting that was supposed to go on the carrot cake (a lemony cream cheese concoction). The icing was delicious, but the cake was a little dense. I got the cake recipe from AllRecipes, and quite a few of the other comments about that particular cake was that it was dense, so I don't feel so bad.
I also made an awesome chicken salad. So easy. Chicken breasts, mayo, water chestnuts, pimientoes, celery, sweet pickles, garlic salt, and pepper. It was yummy!

No more cooking for me for a while, though. My husband has training to attend in Los Angeles, and I get to go along for fun! I'm really looking forward to my tour of Hollywood. I figure I'll get some time in the sun, too, but I'm taking some strong sunscreen because right now, I'm white as a ghost!

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!


  1. I love going away w/my hubby when he has a business trip...I get to meander around myself during the day or just stay in the hotel room and quilt or read and then in the evening we get to see the city together...wonderful, peaceful holiday! I hope you enjoy yours...Hollywood sounds a little more glamorous then some of the places I've been to! Thanks for stopping by and your sweet comments!

  2. oohh.. Hollywood! How fun! I've never been further west than Colorado, but my husband lived in CA when he was little and can't wait to take me out there. Enjoy!

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog :) My littlest doesn't seem at all phazed by his arm cast, so that's a relief!

    Enjoy your trip, and the break from cooking! I joined part of my husband's work trip to Philadelphia one time (we're in Ontario) and other spouses did too for the weekend. It was a lot of fun :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
