I cook every night, but I rarely bake. So I just had to document the events of yesterday and today, which involved creating said devil's food cake and (homemade) peppermint whipped cream with Rainier cherry concoction. You don't know how many cherries didn't meet my exacting aesthetic standards for the cake. Of course I had to eat those so that I didn't accidentally mix them up.
The chaos of the last few days may be the cause of this baking. Friday Gabi's hives got so bad that I ended up taking her to the ER at Children's. She's okay--it's some kind of mysterious food allergy, apparently--but she looks like hell and is still itchy. They gave us a steriod and anti-itch meds. It was strangely fun, though, being out that late at night just the two of us. There was a baseball game downtown and a concert, and it was one of those thick humid summer nights where the sky feels so low. It made me realize I need to get out more. Maybe eat more cake too.
