Domestic Confessional

by mssinglemama on November 16, 2010

This weekend after baking a birthday cake from scratch – a delicious banana cake topped with whipped cream.

The recipient was Grandma Bear, who deserves 10 cakes just like it every day because she’s so sweet, and because she really knows how to raise excellent humans.

And then…

I bought a sweater for a dog.

But not just any dog. The dog in question in Murphy, the sweetest and cuddliest doggy ever to walk the planet.

So, I guess that’s it. I bought a sweater for a dog. This single mama is officially completely domesticated.

Move right along, People.

There’s nothing left to see here.

I bought my pug a sweater, purple puffy vest and matching purple boots….it makes outside time much better! Although, she now will run around and wait to do her business – so maybe not my brightest idea. I put the sweater on the cat, just to see what he would do. He immediately dropped on to his belly and acted like I had paralyzed him….or at the very least, ripped away his manhood. 🙂

The recipe… ahh, but that would be SO domestic! The recipe can be found in the Joy of Cooking for Banana Cake.

Here you go…

For the top I used home made whipped cream with lots of sugar. Should have decorated with bananas or made banana cream filling but I ran out of bananas and didn’t have the heart to send John Bear to the store again!
