With my job I only get every other weekend off, so the weekends I do have off we tend to pack it full of things to do. This weekend was no different! I thought I’d share the happenings with you guys because it was a good time!
After baking the delicious bacon topped cupcakes on Tuesday, I had a chance to bake again on Friday. My mother-in-law was having a CAbi open house Saturday to introduce the new Fall clothing line and asked if I’d make some cupcakes for it. Well, being that I LOVE baking, I said yes.
I had all the intention in the world to make this awesome salted caramel frosting. Which required me to make my own caramel sauce…sounds easy right? WRONG! My first attempt was a complete failure as was the second one. So, I had to go with a plan B.
Luckily I received my Foodie Penpals box last week and she included ingredients and a recipe for a peanut butter frosting. It wasn’t the salted caramel I was wishing for, but it may have been even better! I’m telling you this frosting was the most amazing peanut butter frosting ever! I may have even eaten the extra straight out of the frosting bag. Lol.
The white cupcakes with strawberry frosting and chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting were freaking amazing and a big hit with everyone who ate them at the open house! I should start a business or something!
Oh and while at my in-law’s house, I snapped this picture of Mr. B’s senior picture collage. Wasn’t he just a cutie with those curls?! I totally would have been crushing hard on him in high school!
After the CAbi open house, I met up with Mr. B. We made our way down to RIBCO for their 3rd Annual Festiv-ale. We met our friend Justin and tasted our way through some delicious beer!
We walked around and tried several different beers. Mr. B was all about the IPAs and tasted several, Justin tried a variety and I carefully selected my choices.
We were getting down to our last few tickets and becoming more picky about our selections. I knew the I wanted to try one last beer before we left and had been saving it for last. And boy did I make a wise choice!
That above is Creme Brulee beer from Southern Tier Brewing Company out of Lakewood, NY. If you ever get the chance to have it, do so! It so tasty and smells yummy! This was the winner in my book!
After the beer fest, we made our way to a couple’s baby shower for our family friends. We ate some yummy Mexican food and played some fun games! I won the “Guess what candy bar is in the diaper” game and Mr. B got to drink beer out of a baby bottle. Lol
Sunday was a low-key day. I worked on cleaning up my craft room. Mr. B is finishing up my craft desk and I’m super stoked for it! I have been waiting forever for this! I also made some salsa and enjoyed the day before having to return to work.
It was a great weekend and I’m more than ready for the next weekend I get away from work!
Are you a beer drinker, if so what’s your fave?
How was your weekend?
