black bean cake

*When it comes to paper products (paper towels, napkins, TP), we are middle of the road people. We don't by the most expensive, but not the cheapest either. I am regretting this stance as my nose goes raw from how many times I've been blowing it. I think we need to go primo in the Kleenex dept. next time. :)

*This past weekend we were suppose to have my in-laws stay with us for the night (which got cancelled due to being sick). They are eating grain free so I had experimented in making this Healthier Chocolate Cake. You'll never guess what replaces the flour. You know what? It was really good! It's not NEAR as fluffy as the picture (mine was dense and more flat), but I was quite impressed with the taste. I froze pieces of it and the kids enjoyed a piece the other night...and never knew the difference!

*Kendall is REALLY into "reading" us books. It is the most adorable thing I've ever heard. It's cute when she just makes up the story. However my personal favorite is when she reads a book we read all the time. I get to see how much she picks up on as she tries to retell it correctly. :) Yesterday I was baking cookies and she decided to keep me company with a good book. :)

*Over the years Chris and I have tried different TV shows. We like to watch ones together so I feel badly that I've nixed a lot that he would have liked to continue watching. I've realized I like ones with on-running plots. I don't like self-contained plots within each episode (like all those law/crime shows).

*Right now Kendall is up in her room crying while I wait downstairs for her with breakfast. She refused to wear anything I picked out, yet wanted me to keep helping her. So I left and we shall see A) when she decides to come down and B) what she'll be wearing. Ahhh...what a great start to the morning. :)

What was Chris's opinion of the cake? Of course, he doesn't have a full vote since he's not a chocolate lover to begin with. But I'm still curious.
