Chocolate Almond Cake

12 tbl butter
6 oz bittersweet chocolate
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sugar (I would substitute half with baking stevia)
2 cups almond flour
2 tbls dutch cocoa poweder


Top with whipped cream

(healthier from the stand point it has less of the things you are trying to avoid )
Sorry if my low IQ is showing. But is there any oven/baking time and temp involved in this. Probably heading to Whole Foods tomorrow for the ingredients.

Default Johnny Appleseed Disappoints The Arbor Day Folks

During a nine-year period in the '70s and early '80s, I planted 1,000 trees and let another section "go natural" so that Mother Nature could plant her trees. I wasn't a tree hugger. Motives were purely selfish, i.e., to reduce the amt. of grass mowing and also to establish a windbreak to the west and northwest.

Members of a local Arbor Day chapter heard about it and invited me to their meetings but I declined. They kept bugging me so I attended one. It was obvious that they placed fauna and flora above humans. E.g., they talked of how we owed so much to trees and yet how we abuse them. I just kept my trap shut.

They insisted that I contribute, so I told them how cruel we were to name a certain creature the lesser panda. In the first place, "lesser" is demeaning and probably results in feelings of inferiority. More importantly, they ain't related closely to pandas. Yes, they do eat their fair share of bamboo, and at one time were included in the family ursidae, same as giant panda, but the scientists now have them within their own taxonomic family. They are most closely related to skunks, although that might embarass them too. Anyway, I asked them how we would like it if we were classified as lesser sifakas or something, rather than humans/ homo sapiens.

Their response was ...... crickets .... not a peep, just crickets, accompanied by icy stares. They never invited me back.

Shame, because I would have brought up the injustices in calling the wombat a common wombat and naming a sweet liittle bird a tit.

My peeve of the day is online passwords, and the fact that you have to create slight variations of your password to conform with the different specifications of every site, to the point where you can never remember any of them. Then comes a day where you need to re-enter one and your day becomes chaotic.

I bought too much candy. It was cold, and we didn't have that many trick-or-treaters the other night, so now I have a ton of candy. I really don't need this much candy in my life.

What makes it even worse is that my son knows that they mark down the candy after the holiday, so he wants to go buy even more just because it's cheap.

I woke up in the middle of the night. The computer was set to 4:00 a.m. and the clock on the wall said 5:00 a.m. I can't figure out why.

can't get my clock to sync for daylight savings/fall back last night. It says 8:13, but it's really 7:46. I've been messing around with hit, but it doesn't like me.

And:
I made brownies and put a walnut on top for each square that I would cut when were done.
For some reason, they sank, so now I don['t have a pretty walnut on top. boo hoo
