At the farmer’s market yesterday the first thing we did (after lunch) so I guess the second thing we did was pick up cupcakes. Yes, not only did we pick up cupcakes, we had them for supper. We were all so full after lunch nobody wanted anything, which meant, I didn’t have to cook at all on Mother’s Day, and the kids all finished their cupcakes(they usually only eat half). So I didn’t get to try them all, mine was the Caramel crunch, it was a moist chocolate cake with cream cheese icing , caramel sauce and yummy little crunchy bits. I do love a good cupcake and out of all the cupcake places in the city I have tried I think this one is my favorite so far.
Happy Mother’s Day everyone (especially you mom). I have a fabulous mother. She really makes life grand! I also have a fabulous husband who took me on a farmer’s market shopping spree for Mother’s Day. We had an absolute blast. I chose Simply Good Eats for lunch, pretty much everything on the menu sounded fabulous, so I finally decided on the Philly Cheese Steak, and am I ever glad I did! It was scrumptious. The fries are homemade from real potatoes, one thing I love about fries is when you can tell they actually make them from potatoes, not a bag of pre frozen stuff. One thing important to know is they are cash only, luckily I happened to have cash on me, phew, close one! Other yummy sounding menu items were Belgian Waffle with Strawberries and whipped cream, Poutine, Eggs Benedict, Beef Dip, lots of possibilities! I will be back, for sure, as my meal was delicious!
Here is what I got from the market, as my “present”, yes I am spoiled! Plus, as a special bonus I also got a much needed new popcorn popper.
