Hubby's Birthday Cake.

Sunday, August 24, 2008


Yesterday was my husband's 62nd birthday. Money has been very scarce so no party, very little in the way of presents. But one thing I could afford to do was bake him a really nice cake. Dark chocolate fudge chunk cake. With cream cheese frosting and sprinkles.
Now even under ordinary circumstances I don't eat a lot of cake. But I have been eating a lot of salads, veggies and fruit lately. I figure a treat is just what I'd like. So I helped my husband eat his cake.
It was delicious!
And you know, I don't feel guilty, I'm not beating myself up over all those calories or regretting what it may have done to my weight loss efforts.
My husband's birthday only comes around once a year, and to me birthdays are a really special day. It was very enjoyable to sit with hubby and have a cup of coffee and a big slice of cake last night while he recounted what a great day he had had, all the cards he received, phone calls from son and granddaughter.
It was well worth the calories!!

    Home made cakes are always the best! MOney does not equate happiness, I am sure he looved the cake and the effort you put in-- Eat it!
