tight pants.

last friday night was quite the eating affair. after an unsuccessful trip to the big cheese truck during my lunch break (missed the truck by 6 minutes!!), i left work early and met up with boyfriend back home. we had a nice afternoon of shnuggling on the couch and shopping for his sister’s birthday present. on the walk back from shopping i wanted to stop by the new bake shop called Crumbs. O.M.G. as soon as I walked in I was in heaven. the counter was filled with dozens of specialty cupcakes. think pistachio, red velvet, cookie dough. I HAD TO HAVE ONE. boyfriend and I were so indecisive and couldn’t agree on just one (i was ready to go home with 2 but didn’t want to be a fatty. naturally.). so we had the cashier help us. we went with the devil's food and what a mighty fine choice. I skipped home like a little school girl who just got asked out to the friday night dance. i couldn’t wait to indulge after our rib eye dinner. yup. rib-eye. i said it.


(look at this joy in a box)

a few days earlier we picked up 2 generous steaks, and since we didn’t have any plans to go out and be social on a friday night, we decided to stay in (lame) and cook these bad boys. boyfriend made an awesome mushroom and onion glaze reduced with red wine to pour on top. nom nom nom! these plates were destroyed in record time. we ate every last bit and maybe even licked the plate. as soon as we were done I raced into the bedroom to change into some sweat pants because at this point my jeans were digging into my protruding belly. but not even that could stop me! about an hour later, while playing quarters with woodchuck cider (I know, classy), it was time for some devils food. We split that little piece of heaven right down the middle and sunk our teeth right into it. it was soft, it was rich, it was warm. the vanilla icing was the perfect sweetness and texture. with only a few bites left and trying to savor every mouth full, something AMAZING happened. there was a huge glob of chocolate fudge being exposed in the middle of the cupcake. superb. i will definitely go back to Crumbs. I’m actually surprised I haven’t been back already. it’s only about a 2 minute walk from our apartment. dangerouuuuuus.

and then of course, after too many woodchucks and beating boyfriend at quarters, i proceeded to have another chocolate craving. specifically, a chocolate covered pretzel rod with sprinkles craving. because the rib eye dinner and massive devils food cupcake with fudge filling just wasn’t enough for me. what is wrong with me?

YES!! i did see that one. ridiculous. i'm not usually a fan of all these fancy shmancy cupcake stores popping up around here, but crumbs is definitely a-mazing.
