It was a happy one for me today which ain’t usually the case 🙂
But I managed to sleep for more than 11 hours on Saturday night, which is almost unheard-of (loving the fact the clocks went back) and I’m still feeling the benefits!
Plus, when there’s a chocolate cake in the room, who isn’t happy?
I considered a chocolate/peanut butter cake but then thought it would be better to use a chocolate cake but with pb filling so the flavour didn’t get lost. I made one of my light chocolate cakes but used 40g pb with 60g Philadelphia (instead of 100g Philadelphia) in the filling.
I made half quantities of the dangerous icing ( 🙂 ) which wasn’t quite enough but was still deeeeelicious… Next time, 3/4 quantities, definitely! I then decorated it with peanut M&Ms to complete the theme.
The pb went brilliantly with the chocolate (even for a non-pb fan like me!) I used crunchy but smooth would be great too and it made a really creamy filling. Wendy loved it and was really touched, bless her.
I also had a brilliant dinner when I got home…
A version of Heather’s lentil loaf, (last night’s helping in the picture but there was enough for two dinners)
I made half quantities, as it’s only me, subbing 100g grated cauliflower for the rice (this could have something to do with the fact it’s
a mess not quite what you’d call a loaf!)
I also used tinned sweetcorn instead of frozen and, as I only had about 1tsp parmesan left, I added extra mozarella, chopped very finely. It was so, so good and SO filling! I’ve never really been into lentils – but I am now, thanks Heather!
Have a great week… I’m going to bed early tonight as I’m loving the novelty of not feeling knackered during the week 🙂
