When was the last time you let yourself be TRULY indulgent?
I don’t care if your answer was one second ago, it’s been too long. would it bee cool with you if we had a moment right now? one that’s just a little bit awkward but we both don’t care because we know the gratification is way more important than feeling awkward? one that puts us in a sugar coma and makes us forget why vegetables exist?
cool. let’s do it. (no offense to veggies. lurrrveee youuuu)
here’s the deal. we’re making marshmallows. why? because I WANTED TO LEARN HOW.
but we’re not just making norrrrrmal marshmallows, we’re making red wine marshmallows. why? because I LOVE WINE. and you do too? maybe? if not, don’t fret – the marshmallow itself actually has more cherry flavor than it does wine.
