Too much chocolate cake!

Eggs. Eggs are in chocolate cake. And milk. Oh goody! And wheat. That's nutrition! Bill Cosby: Himself (1983)

Ugh. Apparently, the best way to get over a cold and sore throat is NOT to gobble up two bowls of chili and follow it with a slice of chocolate cake. Thanks to an office luncheon this afternoon, I’m now feeling worse than ever. Actually, I can’t blame it on work – I’m an adult, I should have been able to walk away from the buffet without overindulging. But after three days of nothing but chicken noodle soup, saltines and ginger ale, I was craving some real people food today. Plus, did I mention it just happens to be National Chocolate Cake Day? Sigh. Maybe if the cake had been sweetened with sucralose instead of sugar, I might not feel so icky now. So for those of you that don't mind making your own lower-calorie cake tonight, here are a few chocolate cake recipes courtesy of Splenda.com.

Speaking of chocolate cake, do I have any Bill Cosby fans in the house? Anyone remember the wonderful "Bill Cosby: Himself" standup from years ago? Here's a highlight: "She said, "WHERE DID THEY GET CHOCOLATE CAKE FROM?" And I said, "They asked for it!" And the children who had been singing praises to me... LIED on me and said, "Uh-uh! We asked for eggs and milk... AND DAD MADE US EAT THIS!" And my wife sent me to my room... which is where I wanted to go in the first place."

Hilarious!
