Round One: Day Twenty Two


what is it about healthy cake? it’s always such a let down. just the other day i bought a lush strawberry and rhubarb tart from a “natural” cafe. the glistening strawberries and stewed rhubarb were perfect. the pastry, on the other hand, was like a handful of seeds and grains pressed into a pie dish. it tasted like what i imagine those moulded birdseed things taste like. i don’t like leaving food, much less cake, but there was a lot of pie crust left over that afternoon.

also, i handlettered this to start, really, and it just looked pitiful.

    Eeuw—you just reminded me: my vegan friend left a weird, gelatinous chocolate “cake” in my fridge a couple of weeks ago. I haven’t seen it for a while; it may be gathering itself for an attack . . .

    i have a delicious (actually delicious) recipe for a strawberry tart that’s 100% dairy free. and delicious. really. non-vegans ask me to make it.

    As a youth, I was diagnosed as allergic to chocolate. Obviously, this early trauma turned me into the alienated adolescent I was to become.
    Either I built up a tolerance or the allergy went away; just in time for me to get spots.

    Carob drinks, no problem. Carob as a meal, no thanks. I think the best way to approach it as a taste in its own right, not a substitute for chocolate.

    (If someone could just invent garlic chocolate shrimp, I’d have no need to eat anything else.)
