Roaring Forties

Why does the yummiest stuff come from so far away?

I mean, I’m in Brampton, Canada – roughly 79 degrees west and 44 degrees north. King Island Dairy is roughly 143 degrees east, and 40 degrees south. In other words – the opposite side of the world. Like what’s that, 20,000 km away?

Yet they make some super  yummy blue cheese – Roaring Forties Blue – named for the winds which whip around the southern seas at 40 degrees lattitude, at speeds up to 100km/h.

I guess I should just be glad that I can even get my hands on it, here on the far side of the world. And it’s not even crazy-priced, too.

Anyways, blah blah blah blue cheese. Get some, try some, it’s the bomb.

Real Cupcakes

So today I had the good fortune to enjoy a real cupcake, courtesy of Leanne from Get Frosted! Let me just say – a muffin with icing may technically be a cupcake, but zowie, that’s just ersatz compared to these.

Mmmmmmm. Chocolate cupcake, caramel filling, and real handmade buttercream icing.

Yeah. It was was as good as it sounds. Oh and those little things around the cupcakes? White and dark chocolate mini-tier cakes.
