It is Saturday as I write this and I just realized that on Tuesday I have book group and I have not even started the book. We are reading Still Alice (about an accomplished professor diagnosed with Alzheimer’s)- so on the bright side, I can say I read it, but can’t remember anything, and hopefully garner some sympathy.
Speaking of forgetting – it is a very very good thing to sometimes have a bad (or selective) memory. It can make life a bit easier. It works great when you need to forget about the moped driver who almost ran you over or the diet you are supposed to be on – not so great when you have to go to the store to pick up the cocoa powder you forgot, twice. Which brings me to chocolate cake, that also makes life easier.
Today is baking therapy and everything seems right in the world if you have a homemade chocolate cake in front of you and some appreciative teenagers to share it with. My recipe is from the “Add A Pinch’ website http://addapinch.com/cooking/the-best-chocolate-cake-recipe-ever/, and I have to agree, if it is not the best, it sure is up there.
P.S. I ate that whole piece of cake right after I took the picture. What diet?? I don’t remember any diet?!
