Let’s hear it for Thursday. It’s my favorite day of the week because the weekend is just around the corner. Everyone is anticipating Friday, and the day just seems so manageable.

Especially when you start it off with a breakfast like this.

Savory Oats½ cup oats, cheddar cheese, salsa, hummus, siracha, an egg.

This filled my belly almost all day, which is highly unusual for me. I snacked on some applesauce and cottage cheese around lunchtime, but otherwise…that heck-of-a-breakfast really held me over.

Dinner, my friends, was cake. Because I do what I want.

Meeker is fond of pointing out that I have a blog dedicated to
cake, but rarely make it. (I don’t know why he cares, he doesn’t even like sweets) Well, tonight I decided that there would be cake. And after two pieces of this messy applesauce cake – I decided that I couldn’t be bothered to fix a real dinner. What better way to celebrate a Thursday?

The cake didn’t come out of the pan as easily as I had anticipated. In fact, I pretty much had to rip it out of the pan – in two pieces. Next time I will be sure to line the bottom with parchment paper – but until next time, I’m enjoying this delicious mess topped with a powdered sugar glaze.

Did I eat any vegetables today? Not one. Could I have made the cake healthier? Yup. Did I love it just the way it was? You betcha. There are plenty of days when I all I want to eat is broccoli, so I don’t feel the slightest bit guilty for wanting cake for a meal. It’s all about balance in my book.
