Pomegranate Cheesecake Bites

I had a VERY embarrassing wardrobe malfunction today at work.


Let’s just say I ripped my pants. In the wrong place. The worst part is I’m not sure when it happened and I go to a lot of meetings.


So, once I realized the issue at 4:45, I had a surge of emotion in which I could laugh or cry.


What would you do?


Well, regardless of what you would do, let’s take a moment to remember that life happens and it goes on, ripped pants and all. Taking it a step further, I think sharing these embarrassments makes us human, genuine and real. Can I get an amen? Keep scrolling to find out what I did, but first let’s toast life’s embarrassing moments with these babies…


Description: To me, pomegranates are the perfect year-round fruit that makes any dish more festive, no matter the occasion. These Pomegranate Cheesecake Bites are indulgent and decadent, with a pop of freshness from the little red jewels. Enjoy after a hearty meal!

P.S. What did I do? Tied my vest around my waist and left work immediately. Then I laughed. Hysterically.
