Still craving a steak

20140327-164040.jpg

After I decided not to get a steak during my visit to a steakhouse last week, the craving for a grilled dinner reappeared. A trip to Texas Roadhouse seemed appropriate on this Saturday night. We managed to arrive just in time to avoid the 45 minute waits. Fifteen minutes after checking in we were seated and browsing a menu. I determined not to let the descriptions of the non-steak items to distract me again. When my meal arrived it was one of the best looking steaks that I had ever seen. This was meant to be and I enjoyed every bite.

A Kool Kake!

I am a big fan of Bambi Provenzano’s art work and business called Kool Kakes.   I’ve seen photos of cakes in the form of guitars, beer coolers, disney characters and farm animals.  I would feel confident in saying that there is not a theme that Bambi cannot produce in cake form.  I recently ordered a cupcake cake for my wife’s birthday and was surprised at the size of the final product.  It weighed atleast 15 lbs and one could probably gain 30lb if they were able to eat all of it.  The most difficult part of the order was deciding on the flavors.  A partial list provided include the following:

Vanilla
Chocolate
Funfetti
Strawberry
Red velvet
Vanilla rainbow
Carrot
Brownie
Peanut butter cheesecake brownie
Raspberry filled brownie
Jalapeno
Chocolate coffee stout
Campfire kakes (s’mores)
Vanilla peppermint
Chocolate mint
Red hot red velvet
Bailey’s and cream
Mountain Dew
Chocolate covered strawberry
Root beer float
Key lime
Italian butter cookie
Banana walnut
Butterscotch schnapps
Strawberry shortcake
Pina colada
Coffee
Butter pecan
Lemon

 

 

 

Bambi also make other goodies.  A favorite of mine is the Lollicake that is a brownie on a stick with various decorations on top.  This is a great treat!
