Celebrate With Victory Cake
Yesterday I was so happy I baked a cake. A victory cake.
I took one of my favorite cakes, a chocolate-banana cake and infused it with additional richness. I added 1 cup of dried coconut flakes and exchanged 3/4 cup of mini-chips for 1 cup of white chocolate chips! I gave half to Izzy's teachers and saved the rest for us. Izzy couldn't wait to get home and have some for his after school snack.
Day After The Election Exchange
Me: Did you speak with any of your friends about the election?
Izzy: Yes. I spoke to A.
Me: What did you say?
Izzy: It was a private discussion.
Me: Oh, did she vote for Obama?
Izzy: Yes, all of my friends voted for Obama. A. and J. and J. and I. etc..
Me: Did anyone vote for McCain?
Izzy: I don't know because they're not my friends. I am only friends with people who voted for Obama.
