Be creative EVERY DAY • A Challenge
GASP! My husband requested cupcakes! He has an elusive sweet tooth, so there is no way I can deny him when he asks. The conversation was something like this:
Me: “What should I make for dessert at your mother’s?” (Note: This conversation happens every Saturday.)
Him: “You haven’t made cupcakes in a while.”
Me: Stunned silence.
Him: “Filled ones… yeah. Lemon meringue.” (It’s his favorite.)
Me: “Umm, but… ahh, it’s too humid for meringue.”
Him: “I knew you were going to say that as soon as it came out of my mouth. Humm… lemon… with jelly!”
Me: “Ok!” And smiles abounded.
