Cupcakes are health food
Your hostess has concluded of a series of events, the most recent of which was a party she held yesterday in honor of her mom's 70th birthday. Hence she is depleted of her normal vivacity and is lying about her silken couches like an overcooked noodle. Further evidence of her exhaustion is in her eyes, which are two forlorn crosses and her tongue, which is lolling from her mouth.
Miraculously, a plate of mini cupcakes survived yesterday's festivities. Providing your humble authoress can find the strength to rouse herself, she believes the magical cakes (flavored in vanilla chai, mimosa, red velvet and mojito) will fortify her enough to plod through the rest of the day or at least fuel her trip back to the couch. After all, chai is tea and that's loaded with health benefits; mimosa means orange and mojito means lime--that's two serving of fruit. Red velvet means fiber in another language and buttercream frosting is calcium.
If the esteemed reader is interested in procuring some of these healthcakes for him or herself, your hostess recommends a visit to these ladies.
It is at these moments when your humble authoress basks in the rightful title of these pages: The Erin O'Brien Owner's Manual for Human Beings. If this isn't appropriate instruction for living, what is?
