On Tuesday, my friends and I had our usual PLL night gathering. The tradition started over the summer and we each would cook dinner and eat before or during the show. Once school started, the weekly gatherings were postponed as we all go to different schools and sort of started up in the winter. Now it's more of a catch up and try to make dessert while we try to understand what's going on in the show. Nevertheless, Tuesday was a special gathering as we made birthday cupcakes for our friend who was turning 21.
These cupcakes are pink velvet and tasted delicious! everything was store bought and we just had to make the cake and decorate them, but we had fun trying to figure out who had the neatest handwriting to write on the cupcakes (some were bound to be mess ups). I was very proud of my R as it was the neatest letter at that point.
These cupcakes were a surprise to our friend Kate and then on Wednesday after lunch, we gave them to her (all jumbled up since we didn't plan out how they would be transported and ended up using several containers).
But, for lunch, we decided to try out The Side Bar in West Chester. My family had raved about the burgers, and although it sounded appetizing, I went to look at the menu before hand and first saw a picture of their Southwest Shrimp salad and my mind was made that I had to try it.
It was spice galore, but in an amazing way. The salad is a mix of spicy shrimp, red onions, cheese, tomatoes, and black beans with a spicy dressing that I forget the name of. Avacados were on the side and the combination of it all was delicious. It may just be the new to-go spot for lunch or dinner gatherings.
