Since almost all lyrics deal with love in one way or another, what can be left to say about the subject?  The mere number of words devoted to love is proof enough of its' importance.  Here are a few good ones:  "Love comforteth like sunshine after rain" (Shakespeare), "Love and scandal are the best sweetener of tea" (Henry Fielding) and "...there's nothing worth the wear of winning, but laughter and the love of friends" (Hilaire Belloc). These are all from The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Quotations by Angela Partington.
To my guy, I want to say, how do I Love Thee?  Let me count the ways.
I love the way thee takes my car and brings it back sparkling clean, with a tank full of gas.  I love thee when I'm feeling like crap and thee brings me takeout.  I love thee when thee folds thee's own laundry and puts it away.  I love thee when thee encourages my latest cockamamie scheme, no matter how nuts it sounds--thee is my biggest fan.  And, I really love thee, when thee defends me when thee thinks someone is picking on me.
Since my guy is so good to me, I made him this flourless, healthy, chocolate cake that is so easy, you can quickly whip up one for your honey.  It's rather flat but so rich and full of flavor you don't need a very big piece to really enjoy it with light, Redi Whip.
4 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate, chopped (I used chocolate chips)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3/4 cup white sugar substitute
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3 eggs, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease 8 inch round cake pan and dust with flour or cocoa powder.  In top of double boiler over lightly simmering water, melt chocolate and butter.  Remove from heat and stir in sugar substitute, cocoa powder, eggs and vanilla.  Pour into prepared pan.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto cake plate and cool completely.  Slices can be reheated for 20 to 30 seconds in microwave before serving.
