1. My purse
If you've followed my blog, you know that I took a fanny pack to China. "Hands free, valuables close", that was my motto. Even though I want people to think that's my every day bag, it's not - but it's still fun to pretend. (Is that abnormal enough?)
2. Debit card:
I seldom carry much cash. I remember as a child, having a dime in my pocket at all times in case I needed to make a phone call. That brings me to the next thing I can't leave home without.
3. Cell Phone:
Even if I don't make a phone call, I have every family member's phone number, my calendar and camera in my phone. It's my brain!
4. Hand Sanitizer:
I don't think I'm a germ-a-phobe but maybe I am. It's nice to know I can eat some peanut M&Ms with clean hands when I open a package in the store! :)
5. Lip gloss
I need something on my lips, if not some color from the lip gloss then the moisture from chap stick.
That's me. Just plain old boring.
One more thing:
I made the sauerkraut cake and I have a few words to say about it:
Don't be afraid to make it!
It's moist, dense, chocolatey, flavorful and it's good enough to serve to guests. I took it to my Weight Watcher's meeting to serve to all the losers there! Although taking a cake to a meeting like that is a little unorthodox, it's a WW recipe so it's got to be lower in calories, right? The people there loved it but then they probably haven't had cake in the past few months. Anything would taste good!
Here's the simple recipe, in case you want to try it. I say - go for it!!
DARK CHOCOLATE CAKE
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/3 cups sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/2 cup melted butter
1 1/2 cups hot water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup sauerkraut, pureed until smooth
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a Bundt pan with cooking spray.
In a large mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients. Add melted butter, hot water and vanilla, mix well. Add sauerkraut and blend thoroughly.
Pour batter into prepared pan; bake in center of oven until cake is done, about 55 to 60 minutes. Cool cake in pan for about 20 minutes and then turn out onto a baking rack to cool completely. Sprinkle with cocoa powder or powdered sugar before slicing into 14 pieces.
As you can see, I dolled it up a bit for the Hubs. Even on a paper plate it looks good.
Eat your vegetables!
