Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes

This morning I am making these...Barefoot Contessa's Coconut Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting.


Anyone had these? I'm hoping they are good, as my girlfriends will be royally disappointed if they are not!

Tonight is Friday Night Supper Club at my house (the rescheduled date), so I've got about a million things on my list to do today - vacuum, dust, pick-up, bake the cupcakes, throw together my White Lasagna, pick up some wine, and take grass clippings to the yard waste dump.

Yeah, that last one was thrown at me this morning, because it just "has to be done today". Today, of all days. Last time it sat in the garage for close to two weeks, but now it has to be done TODAY.

Seriously.

So, that is my post today, short and sweet. Tomorrow we are heading to the lake to do some boating with friends (yea!), sans kids, Sunday I have a date with some girlfriends for dinner out, and Monday we are having some people over for the traditional Memorial Day barbecue.

Busy weekend! Everyone have a nice LONG weekend and enjoy spending time with friends and family.

Toot-a-loo!
