Another cake..The chocolate bomb :o)


Today at the last minute I decided I wanted to make another cake :o)...I haven't been out of the house since last week..it's cold and I'm content to just "stay in and enjoy myself at home" doing whatever I pleased, cooking seems to be the thrill for now..I was going to make more rugalah but decided I didn't want to push myself..I have trouble sleeping at night when the leg decides it wants to be awake and act up giving me pain..after I fall asleep it's okay..but waking up during the night is another story..it reminds me!!
I'm happy that Cecil is willing to do the dishes,I make such a mess:o( but he knows if he cleans the kitchen, the faster I'll cook something else :o)
Before we became ill in July, we were able to pick and put away one bag of Cranberry beans (here in NC they call them October beans)..Cecil and I like them before they are dried and turn brown...I found that package the other day and decided to cook them today with a small hunk of Country Ham,onion, a Jalapeno pepper, and add rice to the pot to cook in that juice. Talk about something being good...it was Gooood!! you know it was because we only had the one pound pack:o(...we are hoping that we will have the energy to plant more;;or find them at the Farmers Markets...

Will four o'clock be a good time for me to stop by for a slice of cake?

Oh my gosh, Ginny! That cake looks fantastic! You're just a cooking machine lately! I've never heard of that kind of beans, but they sound like they'd be tasty.

Ladydi,come early and I'll make you a Southern breakfast (grits are calling :o)then you can stay for the day with lunch and dinner being served :o)
Daisy, it's an Italian bean with a shell of red stripes running through it...the bean is white or a very very pale green..if dried it turns brown and looks like the Pinto bean (which is too heavy a bean for my taste), If I find them I just give them a quick dunk in hot water five minutes and cool them quickly, put them into a bag and freeze them. We love the taste of them...Ginny
