Do you ever go to a restaurant and have something that is absolutely to die for and you just wish you knew what it was and how to make it so dang good? Yesterday I went to Souplantation and had nice little dinner. It was light, healthy, and everything I needed for a dinner out (considering I'm still trying to lose weight by my birthday which now my goal has lessened by five whole pounds). I then saw the dessert of the day. Carrot Cream Cheese Lava Cake. I just had to have a little bite...after all I had never heard of Carrot Cream Cheese Lava Cake and I'm sure it wouldn't be as good as the healthy beet and garbanzo bean salad that I had just enjoyed.

And then it happened. One bite turned into two, and three, and four...and then after three conservative (at least I rationalize this part) servings I was done. Don't get me wrong. I could have ate a whole lot more. But I refrained. It was so good. It was probably the best thing I'd ever had at a restaurant (buffet maybe). I just couldn't stop thinking about how totally enjoyable it was.

I am no cook, or baker rather, so as soon as I got home I looked on the Internet for possible recipes. I searched under a variety of things that it could have been but I have had no success. Am I doomed to suffer without this new delectable discovery. It just can't be. I even went to Souplantations website to see any ingredient information and nothing to my dismay.

Maybe I'm closer to my weight loss goal than I thought. After all, sacrifice is how it's done. Que sera sera.

Hey! You crack me up, so you have moved from pies on the heater to carrot lava cake! Way to go 5 more pounds you rock. I hope you are well and I sure miss you.

That does sound good. Did it include chocolate?
