Blondie Cupcakes

I love chocolate!  As much as I hate to admit, chocolate makes me happy and alleviates emotional pain.  Chocolate is a staple in my pantry, a necessity in my bedroom – for those nights I wake up sad, and a faithful companion in my purse – for summer weddings.  It has to be dark chocolate though! 70% or>. Everything else is adulterated in my opinion.
After a lovely chore filled day, I made these Blondie cupcakes to reward myself, using dark chocolate instead of toffee. No I did not consume them all by myself!

Hunger Induced Sandwiches

Sometime last week I got home famished.  I had neither stew nor rice in the fridge.  I had to make do with what I could find. Thankfully there was bread, avocados, eggs, and onions!  Voila I constructed a very filling and flavorful sandwich with 3 egg whites, fried onions, and avocados.  I really enjoyed it!  

Hope you had a good weekend?

YNC Tagged Me

So the rules are:

1.    Post the rules

2.    You must post 11 things about yourself.

3.    Answer the questions that your tagger posted for you.

4.    Create 11 questions, then choose 11 people and tag them to answer your questions.
5.    Remember to let them know you tagged them.

6.    No tag backs...
7.    Let the tagger know when you answered their questions.

11 Things about Me:
1.    I am proof that there is a God, and that he is full of grace and mercy.

2.    I love my family.

3.    I love food.

4.    I think that experiencing true friendship in life is a rare gift.

5.    I appreciate good stories (pictures, movies or books).

6.    I adore my boobs, I consider them an asset and I am very grateful to God for them.

7.    I think my toes and fingers are some of the finest God has created. I imagine them in a museum of “God’s finest collections”.

8.    I believe that everything i am, and will ever be is by the grace of God.

9.    I have random cravings. Right now, I am craving sushi.

10.  I had a crush on Chidi Mokeme for the longest time! I am happy I got married before him! Else I would have been crushed (no pun intended).

YNC’s Questions are:
1.    The last place you visited:  The bathroom

2.    What you ate for lunch: I have not eaten yet, but I will be having rice, stew and chicken

3.    Do you have any beauty regime that you always use? Yes. I never leave the house without sunscreen, and never go to bed without moisturizer

4.    What is your favorite beauty product? Red lipstick, Nars nude lip gloss (do not remember the name now) and OPI “Tasmanian devil” nail polish.

5.    Do you have one weakness and how you overcame it? I was not assertive, and had problems saying “No”. Overcoming it just came with age, experience, a realization that most people will capitalize on my weakness and try to take advantage, and just embracing and accepting myself.
