One Trailer At A Time

Hey ya’ll! It is Thursday and I couldn’t be happier. Tomorrow I am flying off to Miami to go celebrate the wonderful thing known as Ultra Music Festival. In case ya’ll don’t know what it is, the festival is the largest dance/electronic music festival in the world. I can’t wait. Anyways for today’s post I thought I would write about something I love: food trailers (hopefully you aren’t sick of my posts on this topic). I can’t help it that Austin has a million trailers. My best friend from college was in town and we decided to go on a trailer adventure in order to get a good taste of Austin.

crepe-mille-1Back to an old favorite. South Congress is such a good area that has tons of food trailers, shopping, and weird little Austin things. I went here on my birthday weekend, had an amazing crepe in the rain, and decided that I must go back in order to try another one. I was excited because I started eating meat again, so I was going to get to try one of the many savory crepes that were available.

photo(3)Oh look at that beauty. We had the pork floss crepe. I think this one was even better than the last time I was there if that is even possible. It had authentic Chinese shredded pork and it was topped with thai chili sauce. An Asian crepe? Definitely the best way to go. The weather was perfect and so was the food. The pork was light like cotton candy and the sauce wasn’t too spicy. It also didn’t soak the crepe into a soggy mess, which I definitely appreciate. Yelp needs to get their stuff together because Crepe Mille definitely deserves at least 4 stars, not 3 and 1/2.

photo(4)Ya’ll know I have a huge weakness for snowballs. When we were walking up South Congress, I spotted this thing from a far away distance. Yes, my eyes are special and they locate things that I love in life. This trailer is new in Austin, so I thought I would test out the snowball quality of yet another stand.

photo(8)I decided to order the Cinderella. It was a mix of blue coconut and toasted coconut. As you saw in my last post, I love coconut. As soon as I saw on the menu that there was double the coconut then I knew I was going to get it. It was delicious. The only downside was that there was more blue coconut than the toasted coconut, so it sort of got overpowered. The other problem was that it became liquid very quickly, but I still thought it was tart and had a good flavor.

photo(5)While I munched on my snowcone, we waited for this interesting looking trailer to open up. They had an entire patio in front of their trailer! That was crazy cool. Since there was a cheese sign in front of the patio, we thought that the trailer probably sold something having to do with cheese or grilled cheeses. Obviously that meant we were going to check it out since cheese is one of our favorite food groups.

photo(6)Cheesey goodness. We decided to order the via 206. The sandwich had cheddar, gruyere, balsamic apricot fig jam, and it was on beer bread. I wish the sandwich was bigger. That was my only complaint. It was perfectly grilled, the cheese was melty and goey, and the fig jam provided a sweet taste to match the cheese flavors. I wish I lived down the street, so I could get myself a grilled cheese everyday.

capital-city-bakeryOf course I had to take my best friend to my best food truck: Capital City. Oh how I love these baked goods. Seriously best vegan treats in all of Austin. Maybe even the best desserts in Austin, but I love all desserts so that would be hard.

photoCapital city makes the cutest iced sugar cookies on the planet. When I saw this little cat in the bakery window, I just had to get it. It was delicious too. The cookie was soft and chewy. The icing was not too sweet and there wasn’t an excessive amount on top. I am definitely a fan of the cookies now (NOTHING is bad at this trailer, I swear).

photo(1)There were so many wonderful cupcakes in the window. However out of the corner of my eye, I saw her toasting some marshmallows in the back. Then I looked to the other side and saw a line of cupcakes waiting to be topped with the marshmallows. Hello, s’mores cupcakes. Of course I was going straight for that one. The cupcake was moist chocolatey goodness while the icing was a subtle sweet flavor. Not to mention the extra chocolate on top with the marshmallow. This cupcake was amazing. My friend ended up getting the blackberry lemon cupcake, which was also as delicious.

2The final stop was of course one of the greatest trailers in Austin: Gordough’s. My friend had heard a lot about this wonderful trailer not only from me, but from her family friend who lives in Houston. He told her that Gordough’s is a must! I wasn’t going to complain about going there because it is so good.

photo(7)This looks sort of like a pile of mush. It was definitely a super delicious pile of mush. We got the Sarah’s joy donut, which was chocolate and coconut. Pretty much like an mounds bar, but on a donut. The donut was also stuffed with coconut cream. Ummm YES. We ended up taking it to go because we were full at the time. We wanted to snack on it later though, so I guess that is why it looks like a pile of mush.

lA much prettier picture of the Sarah’s Joy donut. This is obviously not my picture because it is beautiful. All of my pictures look like a huge pile of junk. You can drool though and enjoy.

Have an awesome day and I’ll probably be on hiatus for a couple of days while I’m in Miami. Pretty much all I’ll be doing is dancing, raging, and sleeping. No time for blogging.

WIAW in NYC

Hey ya’ll! I’m so glad it is Wednesday because that means it is only two more days until I’m going to be experiencing the greatest time of my life: Ultra Music Festival in Miami. Yeah, hopefully I don’t die. On a happier note, it is What I Ate Wednesday! Seriously I love Jenn for creating this magical day. For my WIAW, I’m going to be posting about my trip to NYC. This was a little bit ago, but I’m finally getting to post about it since I’m not as busy as I normally am.

photo(4)Before I left for the airport, I made a quick breakfast of an egg in the middle to hold me over. Don’t worry, I had two. They were fried eggs in whole wheat toast. Can you believe that some people have never had the pleasure of having one of these? It seriously amazes me and scares me at the same time. I always worry about people that haven’t experienced all that there is in the food world – even simple things like an egg in the middle.

photo(3)Once I got into the city (I was so proud of myself because I rode the subway with my suitcase by myself all the way to the flatiron district from my airport), I was reunited with my long lost love. Only recently were we introduced, but it was love at first gulp. David’s tea is the greatest place in the world. Unfortunately it only exists in Canada and NYC. That is not cool. However I grabbed myself a warm cup of Blueberry Jam tea, so I could stroll around the shops and be warm while my friend was finishing up work at Buzzfeed (YES, my best friend is bad ass).

photoHer office is literally surrounded by all my favorite places: David’s Tea, Urban Outfitters, tons of shopping, and CRUMBS! My love for Crumbs Cupcakes stems all the way back to when I got back to America from Israel and I had my first bite of these delicious cupcakes. Of course I was totally going to be unhealthy and eat some cupcakes for lunch.

photo(7)Look at that gooey goodness inside the cake. This was the toasted coconut cupcake. Get it. Seriously you will not regret it. The icing is sweet and creamy while the cake is extremely moist. Inside is coconut cream. Biting into this was like entering into a sweet cupcake wonderland. It just melted in my mouth. I cry at night because there are no crumbs near me. I think it is a sign that I need to come up to the north (I wish).

photo(1)For dinner, we met up with my friend’s dad at a place called Dos Caminos. If you are living in NYC, but you need some quality Mexican/Spanish food then definitely hit this place up. At least go for the margaritas because those are crazy good and definitely a little strong (or I’m just a light weight). This was a sangria swirl margarita and it was delicious. It had the hint of sangria, but with the good taste of a strong tequila margarita. Yum. I’m not gonna lie, but I was getting a little tipsy just after this one drink. That is sad, but good times.

photo(6)For one of the appetizers, we had albondigas con chile. Pretty much they are red chile meatballs that are covered and sitting in roasted tomato-habanero sauce. This was heaven in a pan. I wish they were never ending because I definitely could have destroyed a couple more of these. We had two other appetizers. One was guacamole, which we ordered spicy and it came out too spicy. I couldn’t handle it. The other appetizer was red snapper ceviche. I have a deep passion for ceviche, which will actually be fulfilled when I go to Spain this summer. I will consume crazy amounts of ceviche. Anyways this ceviche was good, but it was a small portion so I was sad.

photo(5)For my main dish, I got fish tacos. I thought the presentation was super cute. The tacos were really good too. The fish was a mahi mahi and the tacos were topped with pico de gallo, some cabbage salad, and a aoili sauce. Perfection. I ended up having leftovers, which I ate at my friends later on in the weekend before going out one night.

photo(2)Most of the main dishes came with your choice of beans and some spanish rice. Of course we got some refried black beans. You can’t go wrong with anything that is refried. They are definitely a weakness of mine. I love to mix the rice and beans together then put it on my taco. Best way to eat tacos or any Mexican dish in my opinion!

Have a great WIAW! I have to go back to studying about fiber and fatty acids.

Belated Birthday

Hey ya’ll! This week is sort of crazy for me. I’m taking the GRE on Thursday night, so I’ve been devoting my life to studying for it. I am praying that I do good, so I don’t have to take it again. That thing is freaking expensive. To be honest, I don’t really think you need to be skilled in geometry or have a high vocab to get your masters in nutrition and exercise physiology. Anyways this past weekend it was my mom’s birthday! I seriously love my mom to death, she is pretty awesome.

DSC01570

Funny story actually. So on Friday we went to this place called Hey Cupcake to get my cousin a few cupcakes for her birthday (yeah, all of my relatives are born at the same time – weird), and my mom decided to get one for herself for her birthday. The guy working there was like well how old are you and she was like guess how old my daughter is, so he looks at me and goes 16. REALLY DUDE? Like really? I’m 23, but sure 7 years off isn’t bad. He then proceeds to flirt with me and talk about how tall women are beautiful. Umm okay, you just thought I was 16 about 5 seconds ago.

DSCN0160For my mom’s actual birthday, we ended up going to the Whole Foods in downtown Austin to pick up lunch and about 5 million desserts. Okay, I exaggerated a bit. Only like 6 desserts because there was a surprise waiting for my mom at home. We first went to go get my mom a chocolate covered caramel apple at the chocolate bar in the Whole Foods, and that is where I saw some pretty cool stained glass chocolate. I love that chocolate is an art form. I also love the way it tastes. You are probably a deeply disturbed person if you don’t like chocolate.

DSCN0167For my lunch I had a salad from the hot and cold food bars. I piled it on with delicious goodness. It had spinach leaves and romaine lettuce, eggplant with miso glaze, roasted zucchini, grilled mushrooms, pesto roasted tofu, edamame, and some roasted tomatoes. Healthy and delicious. That is my style. My brother and mom split a sandwich called the Mopac. I know ya’ll are telling me to shut up about the food and just get to the desserts, so lets do this.

DSCN0171That is beautiful. I have a weakness for cherries. Oh and if you didn’t already know chocolate too. I love chocolate. This was a black forest cake in a cup. I love when Whole Foods smashes up a dessert and puts it in a cup to go. This dessert was probably my favorite of all the ones we picked out to have. It was so rich from the chocolate and it was moist. Thank god because I hate when cakes or brownies are like crispy instead of squishy.

DSCN0170That cloud of fluffy icing looks like a nice pillow that I just want to lay on and eat it up. Maybe not exactly, but I definitely want to gobble it up. This is the tres leches cake at Whole Foods. If you haven’t had it, you seriously need to get in your car and go pick one up immediately. This is probably the moistest cake I have ever had, and also the best tres leches cake I’ve probably had too. Whole Foods does a perfect job of incorporating the classic flavors of this traditional Mexican dessert.

DSCN0163The surprise that was awaiting my mother. A Banana Fosters birthday cake. Yes, I know. This actually exists in reality. Thank you Whole Foods for being the greatest place in the world. Okay I wouldn’t go that far, but I do love the Whole Foods. Really just the one in Austin because it is the headquarters and far superior to any other one in the world.

DSCN0169This cake was heaven. It had a thin layer of caramel for every icing layer within the cake. The bottom of the cake was surrounded in dehydrated bananas, I was a fan and no one else was. The icing was fluffy and delicious, while the cake was not dry and had so many flavors packed into it. It was sort of overwhelming, but in a good way.

DSCN0173I ended up having some fruit salad, so I could pretend that I didn’t eat all of that dessert. I’m not that much of a fatty. I only had one or two bites of every dessert that we actually got. I liked the fruit salad though. It was only filled berries and pineapple. I was glad because I’m not a fan of honeydew and I hate when people put it in fruit salad. Gross.

DSCN0161I just thought this was really neat. We obviously didn’t buy a huge thing of chocolate, but I love how they do all these cool artsy pieces in the display case at the chocolate bar in the Whole Foods. I do wonder if someone actually buys these things. I wouldn’t mind if a guy bought me that key in dark chocolate.

DSCN0162We know I love cupcakes. My weakness in life. Whole Foods does such a good job at making the cupcakes look crazy adorable, so people will buy them. This one was my favorite one that day. It was an icecream sunday on top of a plain vanilla cupcake. I’ve had their cupcakes before, so I didn’t want to get one. I love the icing, but the cake is just sort of a cake. Whole Foods is obviously somewhere you don’t go to get the cupcakes, but still most of their desserts are pretty mind blowing.

What is your favorite dessert?
How often do you go to Whole Foods?

WIAW (More like What Trailers I Ate)

Hey ya’ll! It is my favorite day of the week. What I Ate Wednesday. Since this is my first one back, I’ve decided to make it extra special. It is going to be based around…drum roll….TRAILERS. Ya’ll are probably sick of my love for food trailers, but I think you are just going to have to get over it. Shout out to Jenn for allowing me to post my love for trailers on her blog on Wednesdays. Lets get this WIAW party started.

capital-city-bakeryOh you have seen this trailer on my blog before? That is right. I love this trailer more than anything. Capital City bakery has a sweet spot in my heart. Not only because of the delicious cupcakes they serve or the cinnamon rolls, but the brownies with various toppings are mind blowing.

DSC02712I know your stomach is probably growling out of control right now staring at these beauties. Let me tell you, that woman knows how to make some amazing brownies. Seriously. The two brownies in this box are raspberry and peanut butter. Both icings are decadent and different in their own way. I couldn’t even pick what brownie was my favorite because they were both so delicious, I couldn’t handle it.

DSC02710My brother had a champagne cupcake. It was also equally as delicious, but in a different way. The hint of champagne was not strong enough to get you tipsy from a cupcake, but it was just enough to have that sweet bubbly flavor. I’m glad I got to have a bite of it.

DSC01572Oh the peached tortilla. Heaven in a food trailer pretty much. I discovered this place once at a farmers market, so I was excited to have run into this amazing trailer again in my life. Their menu spans from sliders to various kinds of asian inspired tacos. Tacos? Yes, sign me up. Also sometimes they sell some baked goods from a small company. I was once blessed enough to have a banana fosters cake pop. It was amazing as it sounds.

DSC01571Their bahn mi taco could give Taco Deli a run for their money. Unlike the pork in that taco, the pork in this taco is shredded. You get more bang for your buck. You know how we Jews feel about that. Also the sauce on top of it is amazing. I love a good sauce. Typical to a bahn mi taco, there was shredded carrots, daikon, and some cilantro. It was delicious. I could definitely eat a few of these.

DSC01580Cool Haus, one of the more popular trailers that is around the US. I think there is one in New York City and Los Angeles. Who doesn’t want a custom ice cream sandwich? Especially when the flavors of ice cream are so wacky like balsamic fig, candied bacon, and spicy pineapple. Then you get it sandwiched in between cookies such as chocolate chunk pretzel or smore’s. If you don’t want that you are obviously a crazy person.

DSC01581 We ended up getting the balsamic fig and marscapone icecream sandwiched in between snickerdoodle cookies. It was actually really delicious, I’m not gonna lie. At first I was like what is my brother thinking? Those are some weird flavor combinations, but the cinnamon flavors the snickerdoodle went perfectly with the fig and marscapone cheese in the ice cream. It was pretty good. This isn’t a trailer I would seek out on my own, but if I passed by on a hot day then I would definitely stop in.

This is all I’m going to give you for today. Trust me I got a lot more food trailers up my sleeve, but ya’ll probably wouldn’t be able to handle it if I threw them all on you at once. I hope everyone has a good wednesday. Only one more day left of class! Thank god. School is really exhausting especially when it is your last semester (wooooo).

The Cupcakes Of Boston

Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend. Mine was pretty awesome since I got to spend it with friends, family, and watching the UT volleyball tournament. We obviously dominated since we are no 2 in the nation. Last nights match was probably the most intense since it was against the no 19 team. We pulled through though. For today’s Boston post, I thought I would do a recap on the cupcakes of Boston.

First up on the list is Georgetown cupcakes, which is located on Newbury street. They had a ton of flavors, but I decided on a gluten free lava fudge cupcake. I have to say that this cupcake was actually pretty good for being gluten free. It wasn’t the best cupcake I have ever had, but the price was good (2.75) and there was a fudgey surprise in the middle. One of my complaints is the lack of creativity in flavors. They had about 5 variations of chocolate and 5 variations of vanilla. I was confused why someone needs that many types of plain flavors. Georgetown would definitely be higher on my list if they had more creative flavors.

The second place we went to for cupcakes was Sweet. I ordered the Pina Colada flavor, which was one of the summer specials. It was a sweet vanilla bean cake with a shot of pineapple preserves and topped with coconut infused buttercream. Oh my god. How I love Sweet’s buttercream. It is probably one of the most amazing icings I’ve ever had in my life. I love that they have tons of seasonal flavors each month too. The cupcake is so moist, and when you hit the pineapple preserves its a sweet little surprise.

Carrianne decided to get a summer flavor too. She ordered the Lemon Blueberry flavor, which was new even for the summer flavors. It was a lemon juice infused cake with blueberries baked in it, and it was topped with a vanilla bean buttercream that was infused with blueberry puree. She was in heaven, and so was I because she let me have a bite. These cupcakes are amazing and you will never be let down by sweet. If you are ever in Boston, you must go here. There are tons of locations all over the city!

The third cupcake stop was Cakeology. This shop was made famous from Cupcake Wars on the TLC channel. I was super stoked that they had finally opened a store front, and that I would be able to sample the cupcakes from TV. Oh how I was disappointed. I ordered mini versions of German chocolate, mint chocolate, and Boston Cream Pie. The Boston cream pie lacked the cream flavor, the mint was overpowering, and the German chocolate was lacking that coconut flavor and it was just pure chocolate. The only thing I really liked was that all the flavors came in mini versions, so you didn’t have to be a pig.

Then I experienced the holy grail of cupcakes. Okay, I’m lying because I’ve actually been to Crumbs before, but their cupcakes are so superior that it doesn’t matter. These are hands down the best cupcakes that I have ever had in m entire life. The first one we split was Monkey Business. It was a moist banana cake with a nutella core and topped with a nutella buttercream rolled in nuts and drizzled with caramel. OH MY. This cupcake was mind blowing. The cupcake was so moist and the buttercream was to die for. If it wasn’t in the financial district, I would have gone here every day.

The second cupcake that we split was the chocolate sundae cupcake. Oh man was this one good too. It was a chocolate cake filled with vanilla buttercream frosting topped with vanilla cream cheese frosting drizzled with chocolate ganache, sprinkles, chopped peanuts, and a cherry. This cupcake was splendid. It was a fancy version of a chocolate cupcake with much better flavors than just a plain old one. I loved the combination of the cream cheese on top with the vanilla buttercream in the middle. It was splendid. You must go to Crumbs cupcakes if you can. You will not regret it.

The final stop on the cupcake adventure was Party Favors. Since going to college in Boston, I’ve been wanting to try this place forever. It had rave reviews on Yelp, plus the BU online blog did a review on party favors saying that it was the greatest cupcake in Boston. I went in, ordered the Boston Cream Pie cupcake, and went on my merry way. While the cream inside the cupcake was PERFECT and the chocolate ganache was extremely rich, I wasn’t as thrilled as the people who did reviews. I thought it was good, but in my mind Crumbs is far superior to all.

Hope ya’ll enjoyed my sweet adventure because I know I did!

Bahhston Day 2

Hey ya’ll! Hope everyone has been having a great Friday. Mine has been pretty relaxing. I’ve been reading books, watching some movies, and I’m going out with my younger brother tonight to the UT volleyball game and to dinner (which has yet to be determined). Anyways, let me get back to my trip to Boston.

Friday morning I woke up, and decided to go on a little adventure while Carrianne was at work doing her thing at the Children’s Hospital. I wondered over to Newbury street, which has some of the greatest shopping and has a cute Boston feel to it with the brick buildings alongside both sides of the street.

As I was walking around looking at the shops, I stumbled upon Georgetown Cupcakes. The shop has been made famous by the TV show on TLC following the two sisters that own the company. My stomach was growling, and I wanted to see if the hype about the cupcakes was actually true.

They had tons of cupcakes on display and for sale inside the store. I got to see all this once I waited in line OUTSIDE for about 10 minutes. Apparently the shop was too crowded for people to go in, but really there were just a bunch of annoying girls standing in the way. When I finally got in, I had a hard time choosing what to eat, but I decided to have a gluten free cupcake since I wanted to be nice on my stomach. It was a gluten free lava fudge cupcake (picture will come later when I do a Boston Cupcake review post), and let me tell you it was actually pretty delicious. I went on my merry way with my cupcake and cup of fat free milk.

I was trying to hold off on buying anything because I had promised Carrianne that we would go shopping over the weekend since we both had come into some money. However, I stepped in the Steve Madden store and couldn’t resist (I have a problem with SM because their shoes are amazing). I ended up having to order a pair of boots to be shipped because they had run out of 10. If these shoes go on sale, I’m definitely going to get the tan ones too. They are that fabulous.

After a few more hours of strolling around Boston, Carrianne had texted me that she was walking home from work and wanted to meet at Dunkin Donuts. However, I was going at tortoise pace, so I just met her back at the apartment. Then it was time for dinner.

We went to Fish Market. It is seriously probably one of the best sushi places in Boston. It was quite a trek from Carrianne’s, and I wore uncomfortable shoes. Bad decision. I guess I forgot that we don’t live down the street anymore (oh how I miss that). We were supposed to meet one of our old roommates there, but she ended up not being able to come. Her loss because the food was AMAZING.

For an appetizer, I had Agi Dashi Tofu. It is a fried tofu served in a light shoyu broth with scallions. Oh man. This was a great way to start off the meal. The tofu was perfectly fried, and it was silken tofu so it fell apart when you bit into it. The broth was light, and the dish wasn’t filling at all, so I had room for a ton of sushi rolls.

For my first round, I had a Shiitake Mushroom Tempura Maki roll. There were only 4 pieces, which I was sad about, but the fried mushrooms in the roll were so good that I forgot about how small it was. The brown thing on the right is a fried tofu wrapper and the one of the top left is sweet egg omelet. My mind was blown with the tofu wrapper sushi. I didn’t know what to expect, but I thought I would try it since it is vegetarian friendly. Oh god I could have probably eaten like ten more of those, but I didn’t have time to stay at the restaurant all night.

My last roll was the Salmon Skin roll. It is salmon skin, bonito flakes, cream cheese, and cucumber. This is one of my favorite rolls at Fish Market because it tastes like bacon. Now that I don’t eat meat, except fish, this is the closest thing I will get to eating actual meat. Oh man. The crispiness of the salmon skin meshes perfectly with the smooth texture of the cream cheese. Definitely order this if you ever go here!

After dinner, we had to hurry back to the apartment because I needed to change because I was going out to a concert. My friend, David, had texted me asking me if I wanted to go with him and a few of his friends to some electronic show, so I decided why not. The artist we were going to see was Viceroy, so I put on my best raging outfit: high wasted white shorts, a see through lace black top, and a black bandeau.

This is David, and this photo is actually pretty old. The only photo I took of us this weekend is for another post much later on. He is pretty great. Anyways I met him and his friends at his old frat house over in Cambridge (Yeah, he went to MIT), and we headed over to the concert. One of the other groups was still performing when we got there, so we waited until the real party started. After the concert, we went back to his place and played Mario Kart for a while. Apparently I now suck at Mario Kart. Oh well, it was still really fun and I did get 1st once. Go me.

Hope everyone has a great Friday night! I’ll be back tomorrow with some more Boston fun.

Breakfast and Boys

Hey ya’ll! I’m so happy it is the weekend. Although now every day will be like the weekend since I’m out of summer school. Onwards to finding a job, but until then I will be enjoying my summer break.

Since all I post is pancake recipes, ya’ll must think that is all I eat. I swear I eat other food. I do, however, have another pancake recipe for you. Haha. I can’t help it that I love my pancakes and record them more than other things.

Lemon Raspberry Pancakes
1/2 c Whole Wheat Flour
1/3 c Unsweetened Almond Milk
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp lemon juice
1 packet stevia
3/4 c. raspberries
lemon zest
1/4 tsp vanilla
3 tbsp egg white substitutes

1. Mix all dry ingredients into a bowl.
2. Add in wet ingredients and stir well.
3. Mix in 1/2 c raspberries into the batter.
4. Pour batter onto pre-heated pan and wait to flip until bubbles appear on top.
5. Flip over and cook until lightly brown.
6. Smash with 1/4 c raspberries with a little of water and some raspberry jam to make a thick syrup to top the pancakes with.

These pancakes are delicious. If you are a fruit person then this is the way to go. It is just the perfect amount of sweet with a good amount of tartness.

I’m in Austin! So excited. This weekend is going to be pretty fun. Especially because I get to see some sexy men tonight….in the form of Magic Mike.
Do I really care what this movie is about? No. Do I even care if it is good quality? No. Do I care that there are tons of hot shirtless men on the screen? YES. I’m excited plus I’m going with two of my friends who I haven’t seen in forever, so it will be a good time.

Of course what is the first thing I do when I get to Austin? Go get a snowcone with my family.
I got cupcake. OMG. It was amazing. It tasted like liquid cupcake. It would have been even better with condensed cream on top. Oh well. Next time. My mom got the apple pie one, my younger brother got a horchata with cream, and we got a wild cherry to go (I know boring person). Ice Queens is going to be my new spot in town. I even have my own punch card with 4 punches on it. Winning.

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend! I have volleyball practice tomorrow and I’m getting cat scans on Monday.

Do you have any big plans for the weekend?
Have you ever had something cupcake flavored?
