Treat Or Treat-ish?
It’s a day when everyone deserves (or at least feels entitled to) eat something sweet and at least slightly orange without actually being an orange or anything else that is healthy. So if you were me (or you) would you go with the ridiculously sweet and buttery festive muffin you saw at Joan’s On Third in West Hollywood? Or would you exercise restraint and go with the gluten-free, dairy-free pumpkin muffin you baked yesterday in honor of your daughter who likes such things?
If you were me (or some other person with limited patience) you’d realize that in order to eat the one at Joan’s, you’d have to stand in line to buy it, likely for fifteen minutes. Whereas the g-f d-f alternative already sits fetchingly on your kitchen counter. For me, it’s a no-brainer, sort of. Now that I’m home nibbling on the g-f d-f, I’m feeling non-buyer’s remorse–the muffin is not bad, but it’s Halloween, for Pete’s sake!
Since you are not me, go to Joan’s and buy the damn cupcake.
