Two oddly simultaneous phenomina have occured in the last couple of months:
1) An intense longing for the luscious little treats (perhaps pregnancy induced?)
2) A HIGH frequency of cupcakes offered at social gatherings.
Unfortunately for me (but fortunately for my butt and thighs), I am unable to eat cupcakes due to my wheat allergy... which as you can imagine makes these cravings all the more maddening!
For example, last Saturday I attended a lovely Stake enrichment activity. Afterwards, what do you suppose was served for refreshments? A random sampling of desserts where at least I stand the chance of endulging in a non-wheat creation like rice crispies treats or even (now I'm really dreaming) fudge? Nope.
It was ALL cupcakes...every kind you could imagine. Tables and tables and tables of them!
Then later when I layed my eyes on the irresistably yummy cupcake display that my friend, Shannon, made for her daughter's birthday party, I could no longer bear the temptation alone. It was then that I knew I needed blogotherapy.
And that is why you're reading about it today! (Unless of course you got bored and stopped reading by now.)
I can always cling to the possibility that a wheat-free cupcake mix eventually shows up at the health food store. Or, perhaps the need will simply pass once this baby is born. Until then, I will assuage my longing with blogotherapy and maybe some choco-therapy. (I know there's some see's candy in the freezer somewhere...)
