Healthy Choices

Which do you think is healthier, mayo or butter?

Americans would say butter but Brits would say mayo.  Mayo is in EVERYTHING here.  Every sandwich, burger, salad, you name it I will make a bet that there is mayo in the ingredients.  WHY?!?!

I will never understand why they need mayo in their food but Lola’s Cupcakes just took it to a whole new level.  Introducing the healthier cupcake…..MADE WITH MAYO!

 I will not be trying these cupcakes so I won’t be able to report back unfortunately but if anyone has tried one please let me know what you think!

Would you try it?

Fro-Yo, Yo

Fellow American expat, Jen, told me about a place in Canary Wharf where they had self-serve frozen yogurt with a ton of toppings.  I didn’t believe her so I had to check it out for myself.

Enter Yoomoo:

It’s hidden in the underground mall off the beaten path but if you keep looking you can’t miss it (next to Waitrose).  Look on the maps so you don’t miss out.

It’s worth the trek to Canary Wharf…I promise! It’s very similar to 16 Handles and Yogurtland.

I got pomegranate fro-yo with kiwi, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and cherries.  I wish they had lychee…that would have made it just perfect.

Might head back today for lunch….it’s that good!

Welcome Bag Ready To Go

My family are on the plane right now.  Almost here!

I made up a cute little welcome bag for them when they arrived at the hotel.

A couple cupcakes from Lola’s (www.lolas-kitchen.co.uk/) and a bottle of Beaujolais Nouveau 2010 (which I know my Dad loves). The cupcakes are strawberry, rocky road, peanut butter & coconut. YUM!

Can’t wait for them to arrive in London!!!!
