Cupcakes aren't my Thang ...


My hubby bought me a cupcake on Friday.  He told me that everyone needs cake on their birthday.

I didn't eat it Friday, Saturday or Sunday.  Finally last night he told me I had to eat it before it went bad.  Can you believe I didn't even want it!!!??  I am not a cake person at all.  If would have been a slab of bacon or a chunk of Gruyère, I would have gladly devoured it Friday night.  I grudgingly ate 2 bites, and forced the rest of this lovely cupcake upon the husband:


Breakfast yesterday was really lazy.  I had some rice crispies, and a glass of OJ:


Lunch was 1 cup of leftover stew, and an apple:


For dinner I made chicken in mushroom sauce, on orzo with brussels sprouts:


This morning I had 2 eggs with some homemade Irish toast:


Lunch was a turkey, lettuce, cheese, mustard, pickle, and hot pepper sandwich on rye, with an orange.

My dad took me out this evening for a belated birthday dinner.  
We went to The Keg where I had ribs and a baked potato:


So now, if you had to choose ... would you pick a cupcake or bacon?
Do you have a sweet tooth or a salty tooth?  

I like salty or umami flavours best.

I am not a cake person at all either! Some people just rave and drool over the idea of cake and frankly, I could go the rest of my life without eating it. There is only one that I love: Italian Cream Cake. But even then, I haven't had it in years.

Can I just have the frosting off of the cupcake? Or a few cupcakes? I have a sweet tooth but it's a go-big-or-go-home kinda sweet tooth that doesn't really care for cake, haha...

I would pick something savory over something sweet. I am not a huge bacon person, though, so I'd have to say I'd choose cheese over a cupcake. Dessert has never been my thing!

Kacy said...

I don't like bacon so I would choose the cupcake, but there are a lot of other savory things I'd rather have than the cupcake.

Anne @ Food Loving Polar Bear said...

Bacon all the way, I love savory food!

Btw so cute that you had rice krispies, I can't remember the last time I ate them myself :)

Kitten with a Whisk said...

I'd take bacon and cheese over a cupcake anyday! I find that store bought ones are never THAT good anyway.

Cynthia said...

That's a really tough question. I adore bacon, but I love cupcakes too. Now if you put the two in the same dish that would be something else . . . :)

Amber (Girl with the red hair) said...

Jeesh and that cupcake looks DELICIOUS too! You should have sent it my way ;-)

I have an EVERYTHING tooth. Ha!

No, my tooth is usually sweet. Especially at night. But occasionally I will crave something salty also!

Christina said...

i had rice krispies for breakfast this morning! it had been years since i heard those things snap, crackle, and pop! so fun!

I heart cupcakes... although I like them more for the way they look, then actually eating them, lol!

Hope said...

I'm so much more of a salty/savoury person than a sweet one! I'd much rather have some cheese and crackers than a cupcake anyday!
Your birthday looks like it was awesome by the way! Yummy pics! Happy Bday!

Alanna @ Blood, Sweat & Cupcakes said...
