'cause i like meats too much.
lunch today was mighty nice. in keeping with my promise to take advantage of the city in which i live, i drove downtown and picked up jen on the street corner and headed to pioneer square where we both had ourselves a nice meat sandwich from salumi.
jen had the lamb sandwich, i had the cotecchino and they were good, real real good.
before i picked up jen - from the street corner* - i stopped here and picked up some dessert. i got a lemon cupcake and a red velvet cupcake. now, i have to say, and i know this is going to hurt some of you... but i don't think i am a big fan of the red velvet. sure, it looks damn fine, which is why i got it, because i didn't think that the chocolate with vanilla frosting was going to 'look good'** in the box with the lemon one - but, now? i kinda wish i got the chocolate with vanilla frosting because it would have been buttercream frosting and buttercream frosting is just about the best frosting in the whole wide world - especially eaten from the end of your index finger, especially when it is piled high on the end of that index finger. but they were not serving buttercream from the end of index fingers today so i went with the red velvet.
if i had more self control there would be a photo of the lemon cupcake too, but i don't so there isn't.... enough said.
and for some non-meaty news.... this was on my doorstep this morning.
and look what begins on page 86...
many thanks go to staci dumoski - she contacted me and then kept contacting me because i was incredibly tardy in getting any kind of article to her. thank you staci, for your patience and making my blog and photos look so great. it is a lovely honor to be in your magazine. and the best part is that they used my pig tower picture - i love that pig tower picture....
*jen does not actually work the streets of down town seattle, it is just fun to pretend.... well, fun for me anyhow.
**it is real important to look good where cupcakes are concerned...
