I found this amusing article over at salon.com: Europe's Cupcake Backlash which has my favorite quote of the year thus far, London Times writer Laura Atkinson saying "Those damn Americans, and their tortured relationship with frivolous desserts!"
Is a dessert NOT meant to be frivolous? Whaaaa??
I respectfully beg to differ good woman. Frivolity is and can be quite fun, a trait I quite like in my desserts thankyouverymuch.
And now I can only wonder, what makes a dessert serious? My word, London, please tell me.
A quick search of London desserts, and this came up:
Whoa. Those er some serious looking desserts.
Are those ramen noodles?
Haha! Don't mind me, I'm just a silly American who likes my dessert a bit more frivolous.
Then the article mentions this little treat that is sold at McDonald's in Germany...
New York Cupcakes!
So...frivolous..I love them!
Take a walk with me as I move from desserts onward to snacking. And my favorite snacking of all: Target snacking! I discovered a long time ago that the yummy popcorn you pay $20 for at the movie theater, you can buy fresh in the popcorn combo, popcorn and a soda, for $1.andsomechange!! Really? I mean, girls, come on. It's cheaper to have movie night in your home, buy a $15 movie, the popcorn combo, turn off the lights and theater at home!
Otherwise? Sometimes there is no substitute for a dark theater. Still, go to Target, and pick up a nice big purse.
THEN buy the popcorn combo, stick it in said purse, and go to the movie. Instead of one ridiculously large bucket o popcorn and soda, for the same price you now have a purse and a more belly friendly size bag o popcorn.
What? Is that wrong?
I mean. I don't do it. Just saying.
The other day I was strolling the local Target and came across these lovely snacks:
GOODNESS GRACIOUS YOU'VE GOT TO TRY THESE!
They're like, healthy potato chips, but TASTY!
I'm talking 5 star snacking here people.
What a frivolous post really.
