On Sunday I had lunch with my friends at Porto's in Glendale. I had a grilled chicken sandwich (served with plantain chips on the side) and a yummy blended chai latte. My friends got a variety of sweet treats, including cheesecake, tres leches, and a piña colada cake (so pretty!).
I didn't get any sweets at Porto's because afterwards we planned on taking a trip down the street to Crumbs Bake Shop. Wow, that place is cupcake overload! Their cupcakes are the size of muffins, and there are so many to choose from. Upon entering the shop, my friends and I spent the first few minutes marveling at all the amazing flavors, like Banana Split, Apple Cobbler, Cookie Dough, and Neopolitan. I finally decided on Peanut Butter Banana (with chocolate creme in the center, which I was pleasantly surprised to discover as I was devouring it) and my all-time favorite, Carrot Cake. They were so delicious and rich. I would've felt guilty eating both of them by myself, so I saved half of each and gave them to my brother and my dad. I already want to go back and try some of the other flavors, though I might not be so willing to share them next time.
Yesterday I also collected some Christmas gifts from my friends, since I didn't get to see them around the holidays. I got some wonderful things, which I'll share in my next post. My friends are the best.
