Let Me Eat Cake!

Happy Hump Day 🙂

Last night’s dinner was so simple and yet so delicious:

Whole wheat pasta, marinara sauce, fire roasted tomatoes, Garlic Gold and shrimp. It was so easy and tasted wonderful. But what was even better was dessert…

On Monday Gina posted about a microwave cake and it seemed so easy and looked great. So I tried it myself, but with a few changes. I used peanut flour since I didn’t have any cacao powder, and I threw in a few choc chips.

Peanut butter cake with chocolate chips! It was freakin fantastic 🙂 Thanks Gina.


I finally got my giveaways all packed up:

Alyssa and Jo, they are on their way to you now 🙂


Have you ever had a garage sale? Any ideas on how to tackle this monstrosity?

I have been collecting garage sale stuff for months now, but I cannot bring myself to go through it all and sort it. We had a sale last year and got rid of a lot, but I just can’t motivate myself to do it again this year. Look at some of our treasures:

Here’s something that will surely haunt your dreams (it sings too!)

I’m sure I’ll be flooded with emails from readers who want to buy this stuff

Maybe I should hold a giveaway for those Oxycise tapes? Wait, does anyone have a VHS player anymore? 🙂


1. Have you ever had a garage sale? Been to one? Do you have any tips/suggestions for me? Last year I had everything sorted together: dishes/kitchen on one table, clothes on another, candles/household goods together, holiday, etc. I also priced everything clearly and made larger signs – all clothes 25 cents a piece, books 50 cents, etc.

2. What is the craziest exercise fad that you have ever heard about? I don’t know if Oxysize was ever a fad… I’d have to say the Shake Weight is ridiculous!
