Contradictory Love Letters

Dear Buttercream Frosting,

I didn’t believe in you; the non-vegan, fattening ingredients that composed the bane of your existence. Yet you whipped up so nicely, so easily that you almost converted me back into the meat-loving, dairy hoarding person I was a year and a half ago.

Your fluffy, marshmallow self was sure a cute and delicious addition to the yogurt cake.

But no. I may look but I don’t touch…nor lick.

That’s what omnivorous younger sisters are for.

Buttercream Frosting

Serving size: 4

3/4 cup confectionary sugar

2 tablespoons softened butter

splash of milk

sprinkle of salt

Use a egg beater and those arm muscles to whip the ingredients until it resembles frosting.

Dear Seitan,

You probably saved my life when it comes to getting enough protein in my diet. I suddenly couldn’t remember how life was before you.

I made you by hand from whole wheat flour and didn’t cheat by using vital wheat gluten. You came out looking like poop but you tasted chewy, like soybean curd.

I like you.

Looks aren’t everything.

Life isn’t black and white.
