Note To Self #1

Why oh why do I do this to myself?  I made Tres Leches Cake (translation Three Milks) yesterday knowing that I am lactose intolerant.  I also know that I love this cake.  I cannot say no when it is around.  So what did I do?  My husband and I ate almost half of it yesterday.  I hurt all the way up to my ribs.  Every breath reminds me why I should NEVER eat that cake and yet I do.  Even now, I know it is in the fridge and I want just one bite.  Dare I go down that road again?  Can I have just one bite?


  1. Oh, that's a hard one - Tres Leches Cake sounds sooo good!

  2. Poor you! I have never eaten or even seen Tres Leches I can't say I share you weakness. But I do understand your dilemma.

  3. I know! Give it all to me, I love that cake! It's my favorite of all time.

  4. Ann, This cake is a white cake that is soaked in a mixture of sweeteded condensed milk, evaporated milk, whole milk, and rum (just a tad). Then you top it with whipped cream and cinnmon.

    I ate two bites, I couldn't resist. Now I am all congested.

  5. Oh Jane!!! Oooh. No pain no gain? Er... I don't know. I'd eat it but then I have no idea how much pain I'll be paying for it... hmm. What a dilemma!!! Maybe compromise and have half a spoonful?!?!? Oh that's just so mean!!! Oh Good luck with the decision - I'm fretting for you!!!

    Take care
