Cake Inspiration...



The Lovely Blog LissyLou and the 2 little boys has been talking a lot about cake recently!!
And it's not that I am easily led in this department but I decided yesterday to make her winning one;
Carrot Cake....

Here's the ingredients....


Mmmm and here's the cake....

Once that was done I decided that , as the weather has turned a bit wintry again here,I would make some warming soup....


So took some of these.....


And made some squash and sweet pepper soup- delicious!.....



And with what was left, cubed it,coated it in honey (only thinly-I am still on Weight Watchers!)
then roasted it in the oven for a salad of spinach,chicken and squash- again delicious and ok points wise for Weight Watching!

Which CANNOT be said for the cake- I was HORRIFIED when I saw the points in it...Oh well a treat every now and again won't do too much harm and I was working outside all day today netting up the strawberry beds where I work, but I did take the rest of the cake up there and we had it at teatime....ooops!

Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Week,

Carrot cake is my favourite but as you say only a treat for the real stuff because of the points!
