The best revenge is just moving on and getting over it. Do not give someone the satisfaction of seeing you suffer.
I have been sick for the last three days now. When things like this happen to me, I usually blame it to the coldness and change of temperature. But this time though, I know it is due to the Diet Ginseng Tea I just purchased.
When we went to a Saigon Restaurant last week, I loved their Jasmine tea so much that I looked for one when I went to an Asian store. While I was in the tea aisle, I saw a Diet Ginseng Tea. This peaked my curiosity and I purchased it, with some hesitation. I am not into an artificial way for dieting. But tea as a diet means, what can go wrong?
Tea is suppose to be healthy because it came from natural form of herbs. I came out in the store with three types of tea: one for relaxation, the other one just because I love the smell of Jasmine, and lastly, for losing weight.
At first, I was clueless. The first night I drank the Ginseng Diet Tea, I got sick. Then the next few days when I did not drink it, I was fine. When I drank it again, I got sick. Then my body is just churning around me. I feel like I was being beaten up. Then I got a fever. I brushed the discomfort aside, and I got even worse. The last time I drank it, it dawned in me that this tea can be the culprit. But it is too late, I am still sick right now. And that tea is in the trash. Never will I drink a diet tea ever again. Oh well, I miss church today because I am still not feeling well.
Speaking of tea, this bundt cake is just a perfect pair for my Jasmine tea and Chamonille tea. Rather that having scones I have this. I baked this cake last Friday because I need to use the left over cream cheese I had left from from the Strawberry Cupcake post. This bundt cake has perfect spice blend. The texture, the moistness, the sweetness. The symphony of the tastes coming together and melting in my mouth, I compare it to the excitement I feel when I anticipate the Korean drama- utter joy.
I you have some colleague who will be celebrating their birthdays, this will be the perfect gift for them. I guarantee you, they will still remember you when they will celebrate their 90th birthday. It is that good. I have to tell you and warn you that this is a total comfort food. Ooops! Do not look at the nutritional info. I know you did.Do not be discouraged. Just commit a “dieter’s” mortal sin – just for today. And then you can move on a be a good girl again.
You can skip the cream cheese filling if you want it to be mildly good. And then skip the frosting too if you want me to really get mad at you. 🙁 This is a totally sinful dessert and tempting dessert – THE BEST EVER APPLE CAKE IN THE UNIVERSE .
As I said, I was feeling crappy this morning and I woke up at 5 AM craving for this cake. I had a Jasmine tea and two slices of this…
