When I first wanted to make this, internet wasn’t a huge thing and you couldn’t find everything on it like you can now. I know, I know, I’m ancient. So, I made up my own Better Than Sex cake (I had it once before and I just went by what that tasted like and what I like) and it is always a huge hit with everyone and a requested cake for birthdays around here. It’s easy easy easy and honestly, I like it better than every other better than sex cake I have ever had.

Pumpkins are such a versatile ingredient in the kitchen! USANA offers a couple seasonal drink recipes that include their great nutritionals for your body including their Fibergy Plus and Vanilla Nutrimeal . Fibergy Plus promotes good digesting health and is important to the maintenance of heart health and Vanilla Nutrimeal is low glycemic, meaning that the ingredients are formulated to produce only small fluctuations in blood glucose levels for sustained energy to keep you satisfied longer. Each serving of Nutrimeal contains 8 grams of dietary fiber, which can help maintain a healthy heart and circulatory system.
I had another post planned for today, I should have typed it out last night and scheduled it, but I didn’t and life got away from me today. Signed Alyce up for preschool, grocery store, Jordan had chess club, Kat was home sick, all 7 of the kids were in great form tonight fighting, whining, crying, ticking each other off. <sigh> Very long day. None of us had a minute to sit and just think until after they went to bed.
I wanted to make something tonight that was similar to the picadillo I get at this awesome Mexican restaurant called Tacos De Mariana here in Des Moines. (My absolute favorite Mexican restaurant to eat at in Des Moines. It’s real Mexican food. Not authentic Mexican food made for us Americans with sensitive taste buds.) I didn’t want to make a trip to the grocery store tonight to get extra ingredients for the recipes I found online for Mexican picadillo and Mexican rice so I just got out what I had an went to town. I had the kids all gathered around helping me and it was fun! I have to say since I finally replaced my old food processor that died (that never worked great to begin with since I got it at a garage sale), life has been much easier when it comes to making dinner.
I was making this last night and thought I’d share it because I hate normal meatloaf. I don’t know if this qualifies as “meatloaf” technically, and it’s definitely not a romantic put on the lingerie, light the candles, have dinner with your significant other dinner. But I love it and my kids scarf this down and beg for more. My ex-husband would call this another one of Heather’s conglomerations. I can’t cook well if I follow a recipe but if I just throw things in, I’m good.
Alright, since I didn’t blog this morning due to a nasty headache that started and ended right at the base of my skull below my left ear and radiated out and I am slightly hgh – that’s high – on pain killers right now, and I really didn’t have anything interesting to say either, I thought I’d blog supper tonight.
