i made a mexican fruit cake. it was just basic pineapple as far as i can tell. creame cheese and butter frosting.

made for my handy man that still hasn't shown up. he did call at three and said he would be late. now he is an hour later than he said in call.

i simply can't win with this guy.

I have always wanted to try molten chocolate cake so I made (and ate) this tonight and it was as easy and delicious as it looks! I used semi-sweet chocolate squares and it tasted fine and I substituted strawberries for the raspberry garnish because I had them. Finally, we didn't bother cutting them in half and had one each (there is one left for us to fight over!).

Babetoo, that was a thoughtful thing for you to do! Without sounding like I am making generalizations or promoting stereotypes, let me tell you (from our own experience) that Mexicans just don't have the same sense of time urgency that we do in the US. It is one of the things about living here that is toughest to get used to...we're still waiting for the plumber that was supposed to show up a few days ago, and the guy who was supposed to come over and give us an estimate for the windows and doors upstairs (a week ago) still hasn't shown up. It is a real paradox, because Mexican people are unfailingly courteous and kind, but almost never show up on time. Just a cultural difference.

ww dinner rolls, and I'm getting ready to make some enchiladas, but probably won't get to the stage to bake it off today, haven't made the tortillas yet and need to do more research for using goat cheese instead of the aged cheddar I usually use.

I will be making a ham and asparagus lasagna today. It will have a creamy sauce.
