I don't mean that in a self-centered, "everyone cater to me" way, because I honestly have very low expectations in any situation involving food and people beyond a select few. Omni Mom has been the most brave and daring, dabbling in vegan baking more than once. My Aunt Corry also always makes sure she has something I can eat when we visit her, which is reason #8264 I love her. Mandi has started experimenting with things here and there, too.
|Mandi, yours truly, Aunt Corry.|
All of the time and effort and thought put into making food for me is so deeply and sincerely appreciated. Because food is not just food. Food has the potential to speak volumes about who we are, how we think, and what we do.
This point of this post isn't to wax philosophical, though. The point of this is just to say: I appreciate the thought, energy, and effort people put into making food for me, probably more than anyone realizes.
That's why when I came into work today and saw a dozen vegan cupcakes on my desk, I was totally surprised! Best Friday morning ever!!! My co-worker/friend Sabrina is pretty fabulous, which isn't shocking because so is her mama. The apple doesn't fall too far from the tree. Her mom wanted to "try something different" and decided to try vegan cupcakes for me.
How awesome and sweet and nice and YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!!
I can't tell you what recipe was used or speak to their preparation. I can, however, tell you that they were delicious and made a great breakfast alternative today!
If you're reading: thanks, Mel!!!!!! :D
