This weekend was one of the best we have had in a long time. But that's not why I am writing. I am writing because I know that this week will be filled with, eating TONS of wonderful things, drinking and many many rounds of cake. Is it my birthday you ask??? NO! Next best thing...It's Alex's Birthday week!!! So I get to participate in all of the birthday week action without being a year older. :) Tonight was the kick off...An afternoon of Nascar (he slept for the majority of the race and for anyone who doesn't know him...yes he has all of his teeth.), now football AND Muff/cakes from the Gingerbread Construction Company.
I AM SO FULL!!! I know I utterly these words as often as I am say, "Oh my god, I am so hungry"....
About a half hour ago I was dancing in the kitchen in front of the oven singing those exact words to our turkey meatloaf baking with a brown sugar ketchup glaze. The guest stars to this fabu dish were smashed local sweet potatoes and garlicky lemon haricot verts. YUUUUUUMMMMMMMM!!! I am so full I am going to explode. The encore was a muffin (really it's a cupcake) from the Ginger Bread Construction Company in Wakefield. If you haven't gone...GO...run...FAST!!!! Worth every calorie. 100%..I promise. AMAZING. Words of advice? Stick to the Strawberry Shortcake, Chocolate Raspberry or Chocolate Dream. I also love the Lemon Poppy Seed. But don't get an actual muffin. They are like little hockey pukes.
I am going to have to walk every single morning in order to work off a QUARTER of the calories I am about to take in this week....It's going to be so worth it though. I mean when was the last time I had a burger and onion rings. Well... shit..now that I think of it...actually about two weeks ago in Stowe. Ummmmm....ok so maybe I should keep a food journal so I every time I go to eat something bad I won't say, "Wow I couldn't tell you the last time I had this." When in reality it was 2 weeks ago. Damnit! I ruined that one for myself.
