1 more day/ Happy Earthstrong Kaba

Whew!!! Busy, busy week ahead. Lunch deliveries, preparing food for an event with Mama Sarahn (Greater Atlanta Homebirth Meetup Group, check it if you are in the Atl on Wed), all the usual, clean this, cook this, wash that, help with this...but most importantly.........ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! It's Kahen's Birthday tomorrow!!!!! Ah, my firstborn Sun, makes his first revolution. I am so so geeked. Kahen you are brown and beautiful. An amazing soul, and you light up our days and nights. Mama and Baba love you deeply. You have survived our first year and Mama's crash course parenting with all of your limbs, both your eyes, your nose, your brain intact. No major accidents or injuries. I am looking forward to your progression, little one. God be with us on the journey to 2. Praying for more sleep, more solid foods, walking and verbal communication...as you advance, keep the Most High close and know that you are that. Nakupenda Kababinghi. Your family loves you.

And to Baba, M2, both grandmas, big brother, aunts, uncles, cousins and close associates. We made it!!! Love to you all.

Ah!!!!!! I am dancing!!!

Chocolate Icing

  • 5 tbsp flour
  • 1 cup dry sweetner
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp margarine
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
In a small saucepan, whisk together the water and flour constantly over medium heat until thick (about the consistency of glue). Be mindful not to burn it. Once thick, remove from heat and cool off completely before setting the pot in a larger pan of cold water or sink with cold water. While its cooling, in a medium bowl mix together the sweetener, vanilla, margarine and cocoa powder until well mixed. Add the cooled flour mix to the bowl and stir together until there are no lumps. Let cool on fridge for 30-60 minutes. Then ice cooled cake.
