Chores / Chocolate Cake

I was so tired last night after all the household chores I did...I fell asleep during the evening news and did not wake up until early this morning...then once again went back to sleep.  I am not complaining...sleep is good, heck when you suffer from insomnia like I do...sleep is wonderful!

Everyone knows by now that...if Momma ain't happy...no one is!  One good way mother has of making me do things is doing them herself because she knows I will have to help her. Yesterday was spent doing a lot of indoor and outdoor chores. For once our trash bin will be full as I managed to fill up two of Walter's 50 lb empty horse pellet bags.

Had not had a chance to post a picture of my May 2013 chocolate cake I bought in Mexico.  Gutierrez (a grocery chain) makes the best and cheapest ones in Ciudad Acuna.  This one cost $120.00 pesos or $10.00 US dollars as the exchange rate was 12.00 pesos to one American dollar on Monday.  Notice that even though it is made of chocolate it also comes with peaches and cherries...fruit is supposed to be good for you...isn't?  :D




The cake looks lopsided because I had to make it fit into the ice chest and it had to be tilted a little.  At least I did not mash it up like the last one :-)

Have a great Friday!

  1. Dang, and here I thought you done got up enough nerve to bake a "Billy Bob Cherry Chocolate Cake".
    Since chocolate come from a bean/nut....or something like that, your cake has to be healthy.

    1. I bought this cake thinking of your famous "Billy Bob Cherry Chocolate Cake".

      Now Billy Bob, you know I do not know how to cook and besides that I am lazy. There is no chance I will ever bake a cake if I can just go buy it and save myself all that work.

      I had never thought about it that way but chocolate does come from a bean...so it is definitively healthy for you...or so I tell myself :)

  2. Since I get very few sweets, it would probably put me in a sugar shock. It sure does look gooooood.

    1. Actually Dizzy it is not very sweet. I was pleasantly surprised by that...that is the reason I keep on buying one each time we go.

  3. It looks healthy to me. It has eggs (there's your protein such as meat), it probably has milk (there's your dairy), it has flour (there's your grains), it has chocolate (there's your vegetable). Sounds good to me.
