Kittens, this weekend has been an all-carb one.
Usually this is the part where I would say, I kid! Or make some crack about Thanksgiving coming early. The reality? It’s mid-March and sometimes instead of letting the train run over you, you have to jump on.
Oh, how I jumped.
On Friday we did a tasting for the Groom’s Dinner that ended up being more feast-y and less sample-y (read: lasagna, penne with white + red sauce!, blueberry tiramisu and flourless chocolate torte). Saturday? We journeyed to Edina for a cupcake tasting at Sweet Retreat. We ALL know how that goes. I probably had three cupcakes.
Sorry for partying.
Apparently our mission was to bake ~22 dozen cookies.
So, totally no big deal.
Lord help me.
A simple pictorial step-by-step:
Beyond the two that I snarfed while we were there, I brought home another 12 (half of which ended up in the freezer).
Nothing is safe anymore.
The good news about an all-carb weekend? 99.9% of the time they’re relaxing as hell. You had better believe that I read the latest copy of ELLE, did some fairly focused de-cluttering, and napped like it was going out of style.
All-carb weekends: Do you find them relaxing or no?
What do you do when you’re coming off of an all-carb weekend?
I usually go for a heavy dosing of green tea (check!), something spicy (check!) and as many veggies (check!) as I can round-up in one go.
