“I would love you anyway
Even if you cannot stay
I think you are the one for me
Here is where you ought…to beeeeee”
I am in LOVE…..or maybe I should say strong like. I mean, I’ve known about the object of my affection for awhile, but it’s only recently that I’ve come to the full appreciation of its being. It’s sweet, sugary, cream cheese icing laced, get in my belly IMMEDIATELY being! And yes, this post is dedicated to red velvet cupcakes.
Yummy! For some reason, last week I had a random craving for red velvet cupcakes. I’ve never been into sweets, so I gave into said craving and, wow – Martin’s did not disappoint. Those cupcakes were the bomb.com…and my housemates agreed. Needless to say, those cupcakes didn’t stand a chance in my house (and I learned a valuable lesson, that when you offer something as delicious as red velvet cupcakes to others, some people take that as license to eat all that remain…except for one, which is yours….le sigh). Fast forward to this week, and I give into the same craving while shopping at Walmart…only this time, I purchase a single serving to keep myself in check…..and so I didn’t have to share. Man oh man, Walmart might be the devil (though they were the only ones open during the time of night that I chose to go shopping), but that piece of cake was so good! In general, I try to eat pretty healthily, so I didn’t feel super guilty about my recent excursions into red velvet-land. And on top of that, I’m planning to start a 30-day fast/detox in the beginning of January – so I’m allowing myself a few sweets until then. But I’m going to have to learn how to make these babies for myself….and possibly in a healthier (maybe vegan?) form. Hmmmmm *strokes invisible pondering beard*….I’ll keep you posted. But the moral of this story is: Walmart = bad (seriously, they’ve been criticized on multiple occassions for offering inadequate benefits to their employees, among other things…), but red velvet cupcakes are always good. That’s why they’re my ‘sweet thing’, tell’em Chaka:
