Sunday tidbits

 Earlier this week I made Grandma's Mayo Cake. I swear I put only one cup of flour in it(but then again, I have been in bed a good portion of this weekend, and it was a very rich cake). But it calls for 2. It has no eggs. Just mayo. I put in a little cinnamon too and that really made it taste great, especially, the next day. I had some things I needed to use up so I made cake! I liked the idea of it in a 9 by 9 pan, too.

Mayo Cake

1 cup Mayonnaise

1 cup White Sugar

1 teaspoon Vanilla

2 cups All Purpose Flour

4 tablespoons Unsweetened Cocoa

2 teaspoons Baking Soda

1 cup Water (cold)

Mix. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes.

Yes, that was the best of the week. I did manage to make 1 granny stripe hat too. Then I got in at Walgreens to get the combo Covid booster/flu shot. [see I thought everyone at work was doing this, but I find out from my supervisor that she plans never to do another Covid nor flu shot. The head of adult services said she'd gotten the Covid booster a few weeks back and just got her flu shot]. least it's over. In spite of being made to get to the back of line by someone (there was only the 2 of us) I still got my shot before she did. I do have some qualms about their website saying I don't know my even showing up early like they said I finally got my shot about forty minutes later. And even when I got the shots, it wasn't bad..but the next day. Ugh. I did have Moderna this time. A co-worker said I should change it up. Still, I felt bad most of the day with a slight fever, sore arms and a lot of fatigue. Let's say I was good for nothing most of the day. And last night I went to bed by nine and slept pretty well, except for all those dreams about losing my bag at some strange store. I think I feel better today. Hopefully so.


  1. The receipe looks nice, I would love to try this cake. Unfortunately, I suck at cooking hahahaha
    Nice post, I have just discovered your blog but I love it. I will be checking your future posts :)

  2. My aunt also had a chocolate mayo cake recipe! Which I always thought was weird -- but boy was it good! So glad that you got to clean out the pantry by making yours. And your newest hat is gorgeous, so bright and fally! Your shot experience sucks, though. How could you not know your own birthday?! Oh, bureaucracy. And the side affects sound most unpleasant. I'm glad you're feeling better today and wholeheartedly hope that continues! 😁

  3. Uy que receta mas diferente. Espero que estés bien de la vacuna. Te mando un beso.

  4. I've heard people say too that they're not getting any more shots. Sorry you're not feeling well! Hope those side effects go soon :)

    I love that reading nook under the stairs. I want a place like that!

  5. That sounds entirely odd! I am not a huge fan of mayo at the best of times :-|


Hi, I love hearing from people.
