A Good Day
1. Wake up to hand made cards and a breakfast of French Toast (made only with egg yolks and no whites for Dr. Destructo - allergies).
Here's a flamingo from #1 Son's card:
And a space-going Zebra from Dr. Destructo's card:
2. Go to Windsor Farmer's Market and see cooking demonstration by dear friend Susan and her husband Jeff. Yummy!
3. Knit and be lazy.
4. Make cake.
5. Hang out and knit some more while husband makes the absolute best seafood paella in the world. Really. I know he is the Paella Master, but this one was transcendent!
6. Knit and be lazy.
7. Watch Survivor finale. (Was anyone else upset to see Yau-Man get voted off? Oy! I am soooo bummed.)
The highlight of the day? Getting to see Dr. Destructo eating and absolutely loving his first ever chocolate cake. The amazing recipe that Amy posted has no eggs and no milk! Dr. Destructo is allergic to both. We make other special desserts, but no good chocolate cake. He was so happy. I was so happy. We were all totally thrilled! And the cake was so freakin' good! Thank you Amy for posting it, and thank you Barbara for giving Amy the recipe!
Hope you all had a wonderful day, too!

edit at 1:15 am: Elizabeth had something to say about kids, puking and the timing thereof. So far the theory is holding true at our house! *sigh* Poor #1 son.
