One of my favorite treats is a cupcake. I don't have them often, but on those rare occasions when I do I feel I've eaten something special. As we begin March with another snow storm I think it's time to take our minds off the weather and share a cupcake. Our Pink Saturday fun takes us to the Magnolia Bakery, made famous by "S*x and the City." I walk by often -- it's a block from the post office I frequent -- but rarely go in. It's expensive and usually crowded, but I like to take pictures there. When I saw yesterday was icing class, I thought it was time to revisit this sweet spot.
This last picture almost made me forget the line, the cost, the calories and date I had to meet my college roommate a few blocks away. The pastel cupcakes on the pretty green cake stand looked like the perfect treat for a cold, cold winter day. But good sense prevailed and I tucked the idea away for another day when I need a treat.
I spent this morning at the Metropolitan Museum, getting home just as the snow started falling and the last block I walked home became slippy and slidy. I know slippy and slidy aren't real words, but they describe my slipping and sliding home.
The American Wing at the Metropolitan Museum. I ate lunch at a café that in this room. I sat by the window looking at the snow in Central Park and then at the art. I could have happily sat here all day.
I'm about to boil some water and make a cup of tea for tonight's finale of "Downton Abbey." I'm available for discussion on Facebook and twitter, or for recap tomorrow.
As ever, thanks for visiting. Keep cozy and stay safe. It's slippy out there.
