Cupcake flavors

The toddler's turning 3 tomorrow, and I'm brainstorming cupcake flavors for the party(ies). Currently in consideration:

Chocolate (his request)
Lemon (with my kick-ass lemon curd frosting)
Mojito (mint/lime)
Fuzzy navel (orange/peach)
Caramel apple
Peach cobbler

I'll probably make at least 3 kinds, since chocolate is mandatory, but I'm really tempted now to try all of these. Probably 1/4 batches, mini-cupcakes. So I don't give everyone a stomach ache...

Arrrr vey!

So about that hiatus...

If anyone's still checking, I'm here. Just kind of lacking in inspiration. Or outrage.

  • My last remaining grandmother is dying.
  • The cherry tomatoes are coming up beautifully, but Bad Cohen's elimination diet has him off nightshades, so the toddler and I are being forced to eat them all ourselves. So sad. :)
  • My son has started asking questions like, "what is God? Is God a person?" and I'm wondering how long I can stall him with vagueness.
  • I'm writing a book. It's very cathartic.

Philosophical questions:

Why do pears ripen between 2:03am and 2:05am on Tuesdays, before which they are hard as rocks, and after which they are too squishy to be worth picking?
