Cake

     Ingredients assembled, pan perfectly greased.  Carefully measuring, mixing, and preheating for the suggested temperature.  Baking, the aroma is heavenly!  Timer dings: carefully, I retrieve my culinary masterpiece from the oven. Pandemonium, chaotic as the kids pursue dogs…colliding, splat…oh shit!

  9. I had to laugh, Kathy! When I was young and our family was visiting with my grandparents who had no dog, my Nana unwittingly left a cake to cool on the kitchen table, just within reach of our dog's mouth. She was beside herself wondering which grandchild munched on the cake before it was frosted! Kids and dogs - what more can one say?
