Food Frenzy

So I'm in Publix doing the last minute holiday provisioning. It's the baking stuff aisle and for a full two minutes I am looking for the paper thingies that get baked around cupcakes. A young woman stocking shelves on the opposite side of the aisle senses my need for assistance and asks what I am searching for. I opened my mouth and for an instant realize that I don't know what they are called. It's not Alzheimer's - I never knew what they were called in the first place. Without any other thought process I blurted out "cupcake panties". The look on both our faces must have been the proverbial priceless. In a heartbeat, she got my drift and plucked a small container from an obscure corner of the display. Made both our days I suspect.

Too funny. But then I realized that I don't know what they are called either so I consulted my muffin cookbook and they were called paper muffin cups in there but that doesn't sound right. What are they called anyway????? Of course, now to me they will always be cupcake panties. Lol.

YOU need to be one of those mysterious people who has to come up with names for paint colours...let's see I envision 'cupcake panties' as sort of a shadowy soft greyish-ivory.
