So I’m in Cali now. Last night we went to Baby Blues BBQ. I can’t say that it was as good as Redbones because I am in love with Redbones. But it was good. We got a rack of baby back ribs and two sides. The baby back ribs were tender and falling off the bone. I liked that but they seemed a little dry that they needed the sauce to make it better. But the sauce was fantastic. In traditional picky foodie fashion, I had the sweet sauce because anything spicy was just not going to agree with me at any point in life. Then our two sides were mac n cheese and creamed spinach.
Both sides were wonderful but at the same time, I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a creamed spinach dish that looks like that. It was just full spinach leaves in a type of garlic broth. The mac n’ cheese was great though. It was cheesy like I have not been able to get my mac n’ cheese to be like. I tried to figure out what type of cheese they used and it was difficult. It was definitely part cheddar. It was topped with a little bit of baked bread crumbs. Overall, it was delicious.
Speaking of crumbs…haha that was bad. I revisited Crumb Cupcake Bakery here. Last time we met it had been in New York. I had the Boston Cream Pie cupcake and the Cookie Dough cupcake. They were sweet and had creamy fillings. The oversized cupcakes cost the upwards of 3$ and the regular sized ones are 3$. These cupcakes are moist and fluffy. And the frosting had the thick consistency of pudding. For some reason though, when I had the chocolate frosting on the Boston Cream Pie cupcake, and I was the only one that tasted this, it tasted like sesame. It was a very light undertone but it had a very soft sesame taste. Perhaps the frosting was just too strong but maybe there was a little bit of sesame in it, who knows but either way there wasn’t much to complain about.
