Body Double

Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Bread: This buttermilk based quick bread is filled with apples and cinnamon sugar all topped with a apple spice glaze. 

This week on Twitter a very odd thing started to trend…and no, I’m not talking about the Gabrielle Union thing.

I’m talking about the body double conspiracy.

The one where people were convinced that Melania Trump had a body double instead of being at the event herself.

It, of course, was later proved that it was her.

But people were analyzing the angle of her nose and distance of eyebrows and all that crazy nonsense…really dedicating some time to it.

I mean, don’t get me wrong, if it were true I would find it odd but is it really worth scrutinizing over?

Don’t we have WAY bigger things to be worrying about.

I’m all for the body double idea though, I would love one.

Imagine getting to send in your body double to do the laundry.

Visit family you don’t want to.

Go to the DMV for us.

Deal with your kids through their teen years.

Picking up dog poop.

Though I wonder if my fear of missing out would have me wondering what they were doing all the time. 🙂

What about you?

Would you want a body double?

Something you definitely want is this Apple Cinnamon Buttermilk Bread.

While it’s technically a quick bread…it might be a little cake like.

But you know, bread is healthier so we call it that. 😀

I used honey crisp apples but almost any type of apple will do.

It’s a great day to order my cookbook.
