Full of good intentions but failed at the first hurdle

I decided that I should eat a bit healthier and do my bit to save the planet. So feeling smug and virtuous I bought 2 vegetarian cook books from the Charity Shop.

That was a month ago. So far the only thing I have made from them is a chocolate refrigerator cake. It needed butter , eggs, sugar, 8 oz of chocolate and a packet of digestive biscuits. It was blooming lovely.

Chocolate is made from cacao beans so surely it can be classed as a vegetable derivative? Admittedly, it may contain powdered milk, I suppose.

Just come out of hospital and your message made me laugh. Hope you enjoyed the cake. Have a good weekend

Ooh Flossie it sounds like a lovely cake. At least you've tried one recipe and it's a start. We all have to start somewhere and where better than a cake?
