Happy March!!

As it turns out, I don’t know what to write about this week! Dang it! I actually forgot that I had to craft some words for foodtrash until late this afternoon. Actually I ate a really scrumptious brunch last Sunday and I was planning on writing about that… but… I apparently didn’t take any pictures. Dang! I will still write about it I assume! I’ll just be sure to throw some other pictures in here!

So this brunch. Was so good. Like. Amazing. If you have never been to Smoke on Cherry Street (that’s the name of the restaurant) then you should make it a priority! I have not been there for dinner, but they have this Sunday brunch, and well you know, I’ve been there for that.

Now for this brunch I had a tough time deciding what to order. Biscuits and gravy with eggs and ranch potatoes or chicken fried pork loin covered in gravy with eggs and ranch potatoes. Ok, guess what I ordered!… Chicken fried pork loin, scrambled eggs, and ranch potatoes. Can I just say I wish someone was spoon feeding me that goodness right now. The chicken fried pork loin = perfectly fried, and the gravy that it was elegantly smothered in was so incredible!! Eggs… Well they were scrambled, but good. I mean, they’re eggs… And the potatoes, kinda spicy and served with a little bit of ketchup on the side. Idk what kind of ketchup it was, but it was not any that I had enjoyed before… And it was great!!

I was literally in awe of the food I was devouring!! I went animal on that brunch! They should have slapped a collar and a muzzle on me!

Moral of the story, go to Smoke for their Sunday brunch. I’m sure their lunch and dinner is good as well.

On another note, my girlfriend and I went to the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory here in Stillwater. We got us some good chocolate creations!!

Chocolate covered Strawberry, dark chocolate covered pretzel, Irish cream truffle, milk chocolate truffle, and a cherry bomb!! That trip was well worth it! I love chocolate!!! Love it! Like want to pour it in my eyes I love it so much!

Well that’s all for this week! Until next Friday!

Food. Drink. Whatever.

Oh yeah, Happy March!

My First Time Baking Cupcakes

So it’s like 45 minutes until the end of today! This may or may not be a short blog post!! I guess I will get started. Last weekend I decided to make cupcakes!! Of course, it was my first time to make those delectable little creations. What kind of cupcakes did I decide to throw together? Well, I took a suggestion made by my wonderful girlfriend and I made red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting! Obviously I didn’t know how to make cupcakes so I borrowed a wonderful recipe from the Brown Eyed Baker. I will say that the cupcakes were good but not to die for, however that was probably more my fault than anything! For some reason I had extreme difficulty creaming the butter and sugar (which should be extremely easy). However… The frosting… To die for!! So so so good!! I could literally eat the icing like ice cream – a gallon at a time!! So how about some pictures? Alright I will give you pictures!

Munch That Bagel

BAGELS!!!!!!

20130118-152857.jpg

Yeah I know that is a picture of a single bagel! Well technically it is a “breakfast bagel” from the Old School Bagel Cafe in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The breakfast bagel is exactly what it sounds like, it is a bagel with either sausage or bacon, eggs, and American cheese. This one was made using an everything bagel, but you can have it in any bagel you want. Today I got it with a jalapeño bagel and last Sunday I got it on a chili bagel. I love these things. Matter of fact, I devoured one this morning (the one in the photo was consumed about a month ago), and I mean it didn’t stand a chance.

So, bagels! What makes those little doughy masterpieces so amazing! It must be the hole in the middle (that’s what she…)! Now I know that there is a rumor going around that New York bagels are the best. Well, they are pretty dang good! When I was in New York City I made a stop at a little place called Ess-A-Bagel! Yes, that bagel was great! I can’t recall exactly what I got but it seems like it was simply a bagel with cream cheese. Yeah, it pretty much proved that the New York bagel is the best.

Yet, let us not get too far ahead of ourselves in drawing these conclusions! The Old School Bagel Cafe has bagels that are just as good or at least come pretty dang close. Yes, yes, the breakfast bagel is a favorite of mine, but the bagels with cream cheese are simply TO DIE FOR!! I got the blueberry bagel with honey almond cream cheese and I ate that thing as hard as I eat things. Yeah that made a lot of sense. I know I just ate a bagel this morning but I’m already craving another.

So grab a bagel and munch.

Food. Drink. Whatever.
