What should I have....

Today is the Thanksgiving work function. I'm sure we'll have loads of crap..we always do! I made the Better Than Sex Cake and it is ready for eating. I will post the recipe:

1 (18.25-ounce) box yellow cake mix, plus ingredients to prepare
1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple
1 1/3
cups sugar
1 (3.4-ounce) box French vanilla pudding, plus ingredients to prepare
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup flaked, sweetened toasted coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Prepare yellow cake mix as directed using a greased 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. While cake is baking, combine the pineapple and 1 cup of sugar in a saucepan, and bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
Remove cake from oven and using a fork, pierce holes into cake. Pour pineapple mixture over hot cake and set aside.
Prepare pudding according to package directions. Spread pudding over cake and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled. Whip heavy cream and remaining sugar until stiff. Cover top of cake with whipped cream and sprinkle toasted coconut on top.

So, that is it. I'll let you know my review of it tomorrow. I'm planning on having that be my one small indulgance at the party today.

Last night was a 6 mile run,and it went great. My conflict tonight got changed, so I'm going to hit the streets tonight with the running group. We are doing 4 miles tonight!

I know this is short and sweet, but I gotta get some work accomplished.
