The bread soup smiled, the cupcake smiled– the food at Tender Greens is alive! Either that, or I’m getting a little anthropomorphism-happy here. (Probably that.)
So what do you do to very friendly food? You hack away at it with a knife! Of course.
This reminds me of some Wee Sing style video I used to watch when I was a kid, where they met The Muffin Man and he quartered his muffin (as in the food, not the Lady Gaga whatever-she’s-talking-about muffin) so that everybody could share.
These photos are also making me think, “One potato, two potato, three potato, four.”
Is he making a kinda resigned Charlie Brown face here? (With his one remaining eye squinched tight?)
But honestly, I didn’t see any of this face stuff until I uploaded the pictures. Let’s talk about what the cupcake tasted like: The frosting was very sweet, but I always go light on the frosting. Just enough to add a little bit of flavor/moisture. The cake was a bit drier than I’m used to, but not necessarily in a bad way. Maybe in a… European way?
As I said, I thought it was buttery, Bea thought it was sugary… it was probably a little bit of both. Now that I think about it, though, maybe it wasn’t that buttery. I was forgetting what buttery tastes like. (It happens.)
Oh, here’s a picture attempting to show you the strange curvy design of the Tender Greens silverware. And I think that piece of cupcake went uneaten. Yay for even the smallest bit of willpower.
Speaking of desserts/willpower/buttery-ness, the Crepe ‘N Around truck is outside. I’m debating whether to get a savory crepe, a sweet crepe, both, or nothing at all. Last time they were here I didn’t try anything. I’m not THAT hungry, but it’s apparently delicious. And they have a s’more crepe.
