My neighbor brought me a different piece of cake and gave me the recipe.
2 cups sugar
1 / 2 cup of oil
2 cups flour
1 cup cornstarch
1 tablespoon baking powder
6 tomatoes, chopped and washed.
Put the washed and chopped tomatoes in a pan with a little water and bring to boil. Leave a few minutes. This boil is just to break the acidity of the tomato ...
Turn off the heat and bring the tomatoes to the blender. Strain and reserve the juice.
Beat the egg whites and set aside. Beat the egg yolks with sugar, add the oil, flour, starch and slowly go adding tomato juice to give the point of cake batter. Finally add the yeast and egg whites.
With tomato juice left over, you make a jelly to use as cobretura cake. Add sugar to taste to the juice and cook again until you take the point of jam.

This little yorkshire was attacked by my stray dogs Pluto, Quinho and Saci this afternoon. They would have killed him if I didn't helped.
The poor litle thing was in shock.
I took him to the vet and he needed some x-rays. He got an injury in his spine next to his neck and the doctor said we need to wait to see if he will be able to walk again.
When I was comming back home his neighbors saw me and called his home maid, so I gave him back to her. I hope he can recover completely.
Update: I went there the other day to ask the owner about how was the dog. There was no one at home, but a neighbor told me he died that same night...

This is a kind of pudding. A good dessert. It can be served hot or cold.

500 ml of milk
1 can of sweetened condensed milk
Sugar to taste
cloves and cinnamom pieces to taste
Cook the rice in water without any seasoning. When it's cooked, ad the milk, the cloves and cinnamon pieces, and the condensed milk. Let it boil for a few minutes. Try it to check if it needs more sugar. Pour into a bowl, sprinckle a little cinnamon powder over it and it's ready!!!

This is Elvira, my personal Toy voyager. Sometimes I take her out to do some stuff. I'll try to post more pictures of her more often. She was named after Elvira, the Queen of the darkness. I think that is an awsome movie. Definately one of my favorites...
Today I took my Elvira for a ride. We visited the Sanctuary where is burried Father Reus in São Leopoldo/RS.
Very recently, I thougth I've had found my true love. He was a very, very dear friend, someone who I adore. He was so polite, kind, very handsome... A perfect prince. He was the man I asked heaven... But I guess it just wasn't meant to be, because he couldn't understand my time, my needs, my fears... I don't have anything to complain about him. No rage or anger... I completely understand it must have been my very own fault, for not being the perfect girl for him, for being a coward, for falling in love for him... Now he's walking away from my life and we're not going to be friends anymore. I'm going to miss him like hell...
He was my very best friend for a few years. We actually never met, but I wished so much I could touch his hair, his skin, to kiss his lips, sleep in his arms... I wish he could have been the father to my children, the man who would live with me until the end of our days...
I'd like to dedicate this song for him. I wish I have written this words, because it seems to apply very well to what I feel and think of him.
I believe true love is kind, patient, understanding... It accepts us the way we are, despite of our failures and flaws. It remains by our side in difficulty times and give us strenght when we can't find it in ourselves.
I think a man, to be a good partner, must be three things: a lover, a friend and a bit of father.
A lover because we want to feel desired, a friend because we want to have companionship, and a father because we want someone to take care of us, to protect us sometimes...
And a woman must be to her man a lover, a friend and a mother as well. That's the way I believe true love works. That's the way I believe it's possible to accept each other's flaws (since no one is perfect), and to make a relationship work out...
That's what I hope to find in a man someday.
