Dinner and a Movie

Last month some co-workers staged a girls day out in honor of a birthday.  We choose to see the movie Bridesmaids and to eat at the Cheesecake Factory.  I'm glad we decided to see the movie first and then eat dinner.  If you've seen it you know why if you haven't I shall not spoil the surprise!

Diet Friendly Cakes

Okay!  I promised to post more often.  I have failed.  I try to post every Tuesday and Thursday but when wedding planning goes awry the blog goes to the wayside!  Another thing that goes out the door is my exercise routine.  Also, my healthy eating habits.  This is not good folks!  I have a dress I need to fit into comfortably on my wedding day.  I just need to lose a little.  A smidgen really.  I never intended to have to do this diet to fit into a dress thing but when I ordered my dress it arrived smaller than I expected.  Since the store is all the way in China I figured the safest bet was to lose the weight.

As a part of that goal I decided to research healthy dessert alternatives.  I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that vegetables are a healthy part of anybody's diet.  It was hard to find cakes made of vegetables besides the traditional carrot or zucchini.  Don't get me wrong those are delightful, but not exactly healthy.

So I present the following cakes for you perusal:  

Asparagus Cake from sweatapolita

The asparagus cake.  It's not easy being green, it's also not easy peeing green.  Well, I mean, it's difficult to look at.  Down right disturbing in fact.  This cake, however, is divine.  Gorgeous and certainly part of a healthy diet!
