I ended up with a three layer cake. Vanilla pastry cream in gluing the layers together, chocolate ganache covers the whole thing, and I topped it off with a squish of buttercream frosting and a candied cherry for the visual appeal.
We ran out of fries so I've been making jumbo potato latkas for breakfast again. They're a lot more work, but they're oh so tasty. Plus once the frying pan is dirty I feel silly not throwing an egg in too... (At least I'm eating well, right?)
Z has been staying at work late so that he can get work on the building plans for the house finished. Details - small but crucial - like, where we want electrical outlets and how the path in the garden should meander across the garden.
Tomorrow may be a challah-baking day. Depending on how the schedule works out. Hopefully tonight Buzz will sleep well. He's been having issues the last few days as the weather shifted. Last night we stepped up our meds game proactively. We dosed him with: mucolitics, antihistamines, corticosteroids, and a session with saline in his nebulizer just to clear out any gunk that was making it hard for him to breathe. Thankfully he went along with it (probably because he was so tired that he was willing to try anything to get some sleep.) Amazingly he slept from 9pm straight through until 7am this morning. It was awesome.
I'm hoping for a repeat performance tonight but my hopes aren't too high. Maybe I'm a little jaded.
