Funny Friday: Strange Bedfellows

Today’s post is this month’s Funny Friday, a regular feature published on the last Friday of every month. Funny Friday is a collaborative project. Each month one of the participants submits a picture, then we all write 5 captions or thoughts inspired by that month’s picture. Links to the other bloggers’ posts are below, click on them and see what they’ve come up with. I hope we bring a smile to your face as you start your weekend.

1. Cat to dog: Enough cuddling, The Real Housewives are on and I want to see who's bitch slapping whom.

2. Dog to cat: You're taking your life into your hands if you dare try to change that channel. Brady's got the ball again.

3. Cat to self: Why can't I stop singing that song:
"Ebony and Ivory, living in perfect harmony."

4. Cat to dog: Hey buddy, you need a shave. I'm going to end up with one hell of a body rash.

5. Cat to her dog boyfriend: Love that you invited me over to spend a quiet evening watching movies with you but I'm getting hungry. Got any mice?

Speaking of hungry, here's what's been going on in my kitchen. Mouse free, of course:

Chocolate Andes cake
1 box devil's food cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup water
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp mint extract
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped Andes mints

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 tsp mint extract
1 1/4 cups powdered sugar
up to 3 TBSP milk
1 TBSP chocolate syrup 
1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa
green food coloring

additional chocolate syrup
8 - 10 Andes mints, cut in half

*Grease and flour a bundt pan. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*Beat cake mix, eggs, water, sour cream, oil and mint extract for 3 minutes.
*Mix in 1/2 cup chopped Andes and mini chocolate chips.
*Place into prepared pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, until center springs back to the touch.
*Cool for 15 minutes in the pan before removing to serving plate. Cool completely.
*Beat the cream cheese, butter and mint extract until smooth. Slowly and carefully beat in the powdered sugar. Add the milk, one TBSP at a time, until the frosting is still thick but can be drizzled in thick ribbons. Divide in half.
*To half of the frosting, add 1 TBSP unsweetened cocoa and 1 TBSP chocolate syrup. To the other half, add 2 - 4 drops of green food coloring.
*Place the frostings separately into 2 piping bags or plastic ziploc bags (snip the corner). Pipe the frosting up and down the sides of the cake. Drizzle with a little chocolate syrup around the cake and decorate the top with the Andes mint halves.

    1. Thanks, Nancy. Always trying to think up new chocolate and mint desserts to try, the flavor combo is College Boy's favorite.

  3. Here comes the ol' Weight Watchers party pooper. Actually, the first half of the cake sounds scrumptious. I would skip the second half. And, I think coconut oil would do great in lieu of the oil and plain Greek yogurt instead of sour cream. I might just make it for the Holidays and see if it works that way - mint is so perfect.

  4. I need to eat that whole cake. Then run ten miles to burn it off. Worth the pain.

    1. Or maybe you could share, then you'd only have to run 5 miles!

  5. I always love these! Off to check out the others. That cake........any leftovers?
