Decisions, decisions

Back to the subject of what to make to take to the picnic we are going to today. I had so many things to choose from I just couldn't decide.

While I was at work yesterday I decided I would bake some cupcakes. These are chocolate fudge cupcakes with a strawberry filling and iced with a whipped cream frosting.

Funny story. My boss is notorious for coming in the bakery and snitching a cookie or or other sweets I may have out. Well I dumped these cupcakes out of the pan and had them on a tray then I went to lunch. When I got back to them there were only 23 instead of 24. I assumed that my boss had been in there and took one although no one had seen him if he had. About a half hour later one of the girls in the deli said "Ann, do you know there's still a cupcake in this pan?" Oops!! For once the boss was innocent.

OK, so you would think I was done but not so. Like I said, I couldn't decide on just one thing. I chose three instead.

When I got home I made some cherry jello fluff.

And last but not least, I also made some BLT pasta salad. This is small shell pasta with chopped up cherry tomatoes, red onions, peas and bacon. Mix that all together and just use mayo for a dressing.

I can hardly wait to eat. I'm surprised I haven't eaten one of those cupcakes yet.
