Judging...

Oh man.  Last night when I walked into our loft, there where no words to describe the balmy fishy smell that was lingering in the air…and then Mark…standing, staring at me wondering what I was going to say, pretty priceless :0)  I was actually preparing myself for the worse when I was coming up the elevator because I had already detected a hint of fish in the garage (later I found out that Mark had taken out the trash a couple minutes prior).

SO- we opened up the windows and headed for Marcela’s Creole Cookery on James between 1st & 2nd in Pioneer Square.  It was actually our first time and I have to say that I have been thinking about their Famous New Orleans Barbecued Shrimp all day…it was awesome.  I even got to have a Original Pat O’Briens Hurricane (and I drank Mark’s too)…delish and can’t wait to go back!

Anyway, back to why the food of an angel blessed our home last night :0)  When we got back, we desperately needed to rid of the stench and the only thing I could think of doing (after drinking two Hurricanes) was baking the last cake mix in the cupboard.  Just happened to be Betty Crocker’s Angel Food Cake…just add water, easy enough!

I used two loaf pans and followed the directions on the box- pretty simple!  About 20 minutes after I popped the pans in the oven, the house smelled wonderful again…mmmmm.

Mark had purchased strawberries at Whole Foods a couple night prior so I cut them up.  We also happened to have ReddiWhip in the fridge so I sliced the Angel Food, plated it and topped with whip-cream and strawberries.   YUM!   Angel food is a low fat and low cal treat too…but….the ReddiWhip, is everything but.

As you can see, Jack was the official taste tester…sneaky guy!  He loves his sweets!

We got his approval! Thank god 8-)
