Here's the lovely picture that got me banned from the good ol Book of Face for 1 MONTH.  I personally see nothing wrong with this picture.  First off, it's a cartoon.  Second, what's so bad about it?  I've seen pictures, videos, memes, etc that are WAY way worse and most definitely more offensive, but what do I do?  I either unlike the page, delete that picture from my view, or just look past it.  It's really not a big deal (unless it's something hurtful or exploiting to a child, I WILL, and have reported those).

There should be another rule to facebook, that to have an account you have to be an adult, not a whiny little tattletale, who thinks that reporting pictures and getting people banned is the way to go about things.  It ruins the fun for everyone else who has their big girl panties, (or big boy boxers, briefs, whitey tighties, free-balling, whatever the hell you men where, or don't) on.  

So, what do you guys think of this picture?  I'd really like to know,  am I wrong in saying this picture really isn't offensive?  Yes, there's some booty, big bountiful booties (like mine) for that matter, but I thought it was cute, and it in no way looked like pornography to me.  On that note, I'm off to tan my awesome behind in the sparkling Arizona sun, where no one can hit "REPORT" and get me banned from my pool because I live in the real world, and I don't live with a whole bunch of whiny douche canoes with trigger happy report pushing fingers ;)

For all you (Psycho)babbler's who have shown support and stuck around, I'd like to say THANK YOU so much, I appreciate you!  I love being able to talk to you all and hang out with such like-minded people. You're awesome and you all rock my socks.

Until next time, stay classy (psycho)babblers..... stay classy.

A (Psycho)babbling Mommy favorite!

Texas Sheet Cake

What you'll need:
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
frosting (recipe provided below)

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.  Grease your pan ahead of time, I always forgot and end up  pouring it in if I don't do it at this time, lol (there's a lot going on you might forget ;) ) I use a 13X9 pan but you can do a bit bigger, or I've done cupcakes before and those were a hit as well!!

Mix flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt.  Set aside.

In a saucepan, melt butter, add cocoa powder, and one cup of water.  Bring to a boil STIRRING CONSTANTLY... Once at a boil, add to dry mix and mix with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. (I like to go between 2-3 to get more air into the batter)  Add buttermilk, and mix.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Be sure to add the buttermilk and mix first or else the eggs will scramble because of the hot mixture that was added. The buttermilk brings the temp down a bit :).  Batter will be pretty thin.  Pour into the pan you've already greased!! (aren't you happy you greased it ahead of time....yeah I know... great idea ;)  )

Bake for about 25 minutes, depending on your oven, and which way you decided to make the cake.  For cupcakes obviously it won't take as long. I always stick a butter knife in the middle and when it comes out clean, you're good as gold! The last ten minutes, start making the frosting.  When your cake is done, pour the frosting over your cake and ENJOY! Seriously, there are few desserts that beat a Texas Sheet Cake... unless you dislike chocolate... Which in that case.... I have no words. ;)

Chocolate-Buttermilk Frosting

In a medium saucepan mix 1/4 cup butter (4 tablespoons) melt it a bit, and add 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and 3 tablespoons of buttermilk.  Bring to a boil.. stirring constantly! Once bubbling, remove from heat and add 2 1/4 cups sifted powdered sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Beat until smooth and velvety. (mmm I'm drooling already)  I like to add chopped pecans to the icing and than pour on top of the cake.  I also stab a few holes in the cake for the icing to slowly seep inside of the cake.  Those options are purely up to you, although, they make it so much better ;)

Hope you (psycho)babblers like it!! If you do make it, please let me know how it turns out!! <3
