Cupcake Town USA

We're heading to Saint George today. That means CUPCAKES! Oh 25 Main, I will try and practice a little bit of self-restraint, but your Chocolate Peanut Butter variety is my favorite dessert in the world -- (I think.)

Wish I had your secret recipe. But in the meantime, I'll stick with Mark Bittman's Golden Cake Recipe. Holden seemed to like it...even if he didn't smash it in his face (see yesterday's movie.)


A little sample from the cupcakes I made for Holden's party. Remember how excited I was for the India Tree cake decorations? Well, I think the sprinkles I got from Spoons N' Spice turned out great (and they taste delicious.)

I know I'm supposed to be eating healthy, but even Pollan says you should break the rules once in a while...


Food
Breakfast - just a few bites of pineapple and grapes, and some pieces of left over avocado from Holden's tray (I did not do well eating a real meal or 'eating at the table' for breakfast). Lunch was at my moms. She had left over stuffed turkey peppers that were even better than mine, and some veggie chicken soup. Also a few carrot sticks. Totally wanted to indulge in one of my sister's home made snicker doodles, but passed. Dinner -- back to my mom's (so nice to have home made food!)- she had made grilled chicken, veggie/tomato sauce and angel hair pasta. Side of broccoli...(Hmmm, no "H" in broccoli? Missed that one.) Holden LOVED the little trees. And serious treat tonight -- sugar cookie from Danny's mom as a valentine present. How could I not partake? :)
