Sugar Splurge

I have shared many times that I am seeking to live a healthy lifestyle.  At the onset of my healthier lifestyle journey,  my goal was to lose 30 pounds. However, now that I have reached my goal, I want to maintain this weight.  Therefore, I now try to follow the 90/10 rule.  The 90/10 rule means 90 percent of the time I eat clean (healthy), and 10 percent of the time I splurge and have some sugar. When I do have sugar, I want to make it count!  I don't want to waste my 10% time on something tasteless!
 
Today, I want to share with you a special place I go when I am ready to eat that 10%.  My sister, Michele, my Mom, Mavis, and I often meet in Corsicana, Texas, for a visit.  On one of those visits, we happened into the "Bittersweet Cupcake Boutique" located in downtown Corsicana.  Bittersweet is owned and operated by Angel Schiffer.  We LOVE her jumbo cupcakes that are all homemade with fresh ingredients and decorated beautifully. (Only 3$ each)  Each time we visit, Angel has many scrumptious flavors to choose from.  Some of the flavors are:  Creme Brulee, Raspberry Jam, Chocolate Fudge, Mango, and Mocha Fudge.  The Bittersweet Boutique also has soup, sandwiches, coffees, and sodas. (You can see more on facebook page: Bittersweet Cupcake Boutique)
 
Yesterday was one of those special days we met in Corsicana.  I had not eaten sugar in 5 days so needless to say, I was excited!  As usual, there were several yummy flavors to choose from; however, I chose the Peanut Butter Blitz.  The Peanut Butter Blitz was a chocolate cupcake with peanut butter fudge filling, topped with creamy buttercream icing, peanut butter glaze and a small peanut butter cup candy.  Words can't express how yummy this cupcake was!  So, if you are ever in Corsicana, Texas, look up the Bittersweet Boutique at 112 North Beaton Street.
 
Hope you have a restful and relaxing weekend.  Don't forget to seize the day and be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you!  God bless!
