Healthier Tres Leches Cake

The Ingredients

1 box yellow cake mix
1.25 cups water
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 whole eggs
3 egg whites
1 can (14 oz) fat-free sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated)
1 can (12 oz) evaporated fat-free milk
1/2 cup fat-free (skim) milk or fat-free half-and-half
1 container (8 oz) frozen reduced-fat or fat-free whipped topping, thawed
4 Kiwi Fruits (2 sliced, 2 pureed)

The Directions
Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pan). Spray bottom only of 13×9-inch pan with cooking spray.
In large bowl, beat cake mix, water, oil, vanilla, whole eggs and egg whites with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pan.
Bake 29 to 35 minutes or until edges are golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let stand 5 minutes. Poke top of hot cake all over with fork or wooden skewer, wiping fork occasionally to reduce sticking.
In medium bowl, stir condensed milk, evaporated milk and skim milk until blended. Slowly pour evenly over top of cake. Cover; refrigerate about 1 hour or until mixture is absorbed into cake.
To make individual sized cakes, wait until the cake has chilled for 1 hour, then use cookie or biscuit cutters to cut out rounds.
Puree 2 kiwis in a food processor, and mix into the whipped topping until combined.
Spread whipped topping over cake (or mini cakes). Top with sliced kiwis.

This recipe makes 15 slices/portions, or 15 mini cakes. 1 serving has 260 calories and 4.5g fat.

On This Day:
Friday May 10, 2013
This is the 130th day of the year, with 235 days remaining in 2013.

Fact of the Day: Railroad
The Union Pacific Railroad Company extended the American railroad system to the Pacific coast - built westward from Omaha, Nebraska, for 1006 miles to meet the Central Pacific Railroad's line, which was built from Sacramento, California, at Promontory Point, Utah. On that day, a golden spike was driven by Leland Stanford, present of the Central Pacific, to celebrate the linkage in 1869. This was a very important part (1800 miles' worth) of the first American transcontinental railway line.

So let me tell you about today. Today I had a miserable headache from before I got up. Medication did not help. Neither did caffeine or food. I went to work anyway. Where more caffeine and medication still did nothing. But I got everything for today dealt with and the world was happy.

Let's take a short Cat photo break here

Isn't that Louise sprawl great?

So from there, Linda and I talked more about things from last night, she feels so much better now that she can unload some of this. And before she left I got a hug and a happy mother's day. Have I ever mentioned that she's only 4 years older than Jeannie?
From there I went to the bank, bought a few things I needed, and went to an appointment i made this morning. I've decided it's time for some drastic personal changes.

See the start of that under here

Next up will be getting a new curling iron, locating my make-up, and taking up daily walks. Hopefully by the end of summer I'll be considerably smaller, and I'll be more girl-like.
