Whats good y’all? How was y’all weekend?
Me? This was prob the busiest I’ve been in a while. Should I say all year?? Thats garbage. I apologize.
But for real, I got to watch the Olympic Trials for the Marathon. A friend from skool competed and finished in the top 40. Sure the top 3 make the Olympic team. But I got so much respect for those folks who put in the time and work to even make it to something like that.
Though I will say, it’s gotta suck coming in 4th place in that situation. I felt bad for that guy and girl who did.
Afterwards got to go to a swanky after-party, cuz after the race,its the AFTER-PARTY!!. (LA-DI-DA-DI. We like to PARTAY!!)
It was free food and open bar. WINNING. Then the next morning I had to compete in the 5k of the Houston Marathon. It wasnt my fastest time, but it was the most fun I had running a 5k.
I even wore a shirt that said “I’M SO GETTING A BURGER AFTER THE RACE” Which I did do.
But what does that have to do with the title of this post? Hmmmm…….
Well prior to my race-filled weekend, I had to make cupcakes for a client that were Vegan. Now I aint really sold on the whole “Vegan” thing. I’m a meat-eater. It’s too good to pass on. But after researching thru a Vegan Dessert book, I came up with a Vanilla Cupcake that was vegan.
How you ask? Soy Milk and Canola Oil. And it worked. Huzzah!
I was really surprised how flavorful they came out. I for real thought they were gonna taste funny. Honestly. But even yours truly was dumb-founded on how good they came out.
Now am I gonna go gung-ho and swap dairy for the Vegan life style. Hell No. I love milk too much. BUT. In an effort to lose some LB’s (Thats pounds in hipster talk). I may do so to lose some weight.
After this weekend of seeing so many people in tights and short-shorts, I’ve been motivated to shed some pounds for the summer.
But after my “Experiment”. I’d definitely put this on my menu.
So for those looking for Vegan Cupcakes. Ole-Bill gotcha covered. Holla @ Me.
Thats it for nows. If you like what you see, subscribe to this bad boy, I keep it updated during the week.
Now if y’all dont mind, my legs still hurting. You try running that much and doing P90X in the same day. Dumb idea? Possibly.
