Where'd the weekend go?! After suffering from allergies most of last week and then going out with friends three consecutive nights this weekend, I really needed today to recover and recharge in glorious solitude. I planned to spend the day doing some light housework, laundry, and some diy projects. I didn't turn out to be so ambitious. So my Sunday was spent napping, popping allergy meds, and a lot of New Girl, Big Bang Theory, and How I Met Your Mother.
But the pinnacle of my night came to me in mug form. After a delicious supper of buttery, parmesan-sprinkled asparagus (I can't get enough of that veggie!) my rare sweet-tooth kicked in. I say rare because I very rarely crave anything sweet. My cravings are usually for something of the spicy or savory sort. But once in a while, I do get the craving for something a little sugary. And it happened tonight.

So out to the kitchen I went. And into the cupboards I rummaged. And came up empty handed. No cookies. No candies. I was going to have to roll up my sleeves, put on my apron, and get to work. But first, I needed a recipe! Naturally, I hopped on over to Pinterest and found the blog My Happy Place. Blogger Sophie lists a whole bunch of single serving mug recipes. Decisions, decisions! Initially, I longed to whip up the mouthwatering Brownie in a Cup. ...But my cupboards yielded no cocoa or chocolate of any sort. So I went on to Plan B: Coffee Cake in a Cup. I followed her recipe, but used a whole egg instead of half. And I microwaved for about 1:45 total.
It turned out fluffy, cinnamon-sugary, just enough sweet but not too sweet, and totally tasty! And it also gave me the perfect excuse to brew a pot of coffee... like I really need an excuse. ;) (Hopefully this java will inspire some productivity and creativity this evening.)
Sweet craving satisfied.
