Hah! I knew I could get you to read this blog with a title like Chocolate Cake! Actually, this really is about chocolate cake.
I made hubby’s annual birthday cake this weekend. It is a rather time consuming recipe from the Joy of Cooking that is his favorite. So, he gets it once a year for his birthday. And I do not substitute anything healthy, beneficial or neutral for any of the ingredients. It is a wholly unadulterated luscious and evil thing. The only redeeming ingredients are the organic eggs in the batter, and the chopped walnuts that go into the frosting (chocolate, of course).
I really surprised myself. I’ve been away from chocolate for so long that I wasn’t able to eat very much of the cake. I just took a small taste each day for the three days that it lasted. It was actually more than I wanted. But some habits are hard to break. If there is a special food hanging around my house, I just have to have some. I don’t think the tastes did me much harm.
On another note, I’ve been swigging hard on my Proberry-3 Syrup bottle the past couple of weeks or so. I started some sort of cold in my right eye. It lasted throughout my trip back east, and is still bothering me. Yesterday I woke up and it seemed settled in my right sinus below the eye. I broke down and sprayed some Afrin into the right nostril last night to try to ease some of the pressure. I at least slept well. I hope it clears up soon. I feel like I’ve been on the brink of catching a cold for the last three weeks. I feel like if I let up one little bit on supplements and eating right, I might succumb to something long and dreadful. Maybe I shouldn't have tasted the chocolate cake.
I think I’ll have another swig o' the Proberry-3.
