Red Velvet Cookies and Cream Magic Bars
It’s got to the stage in my relationship where I don’t even notice other men anymore. That means I’ve also lost that ‘single sense’ when you realise other men are noticing me. Maybe I should be pronounced legally dead?!
Picture me doing a mahoosive food shop, I somehow manage to pick out the worlds wonkiest shopping trolley and to top it off I’m wearing a knitted hat and a duck down filled jacket because It was cold outside but suddenly pushing what equates to 11 elephants, I’m not so cold anymore!
My face must’ve been beet red from sweating and struggling with my trolley. I’m even nearly out the door when I hear “Hi babe.” I didn’t even look up, then “you alright?” so I looked up and there’s this young lad probably 21-22 smiling at me. He was wearing a shell suit top, sports bottoms, trainers (sneakers) and a baseball cap (aka. a chav).
Why the heck do I always attract young lads? And not just any young lads but the bling bling ‘think they’re all sooo cool’ lads?! 😆
This got me thinking, I’m not against box mixes but I’ve always imagined the ‘cool chavy kids’ would never bake from scratch. Not that I’ve ever noticed one of these peeps within half a mile radius of the baking aisle! But if I did, I’d be betting my life they were heading there for the ready make pancakes (hello… eggs, flour and milk!) and box mixes.
But I’m betting they wouldn’t have thought up to create something as wonderful as Hayley at The Donestic Rebel did…
Red Velvet Cookies and Cream Magic Bars. For this alone, I love you Hayley.
