Carrots ‘N’ Cake is getting a facelift tonight! I hope you’re ready!! 😉
Did you know that CNC once looked like this?
Yep, that was the good ol’ Blogger days.
In September 2008, Carrots ‘N’ Cake received its current look and hasn’t changed all that much since. However, in the past few months, you’ve probably noticed that CNC crashes almost every day. Well, the “back end” of the blog no longer supports its traffic, so the new and improved Carrots ‘N’ Cake should definitely help with this issue.
If you’re curious about the full history of Carrots ‘N’ Cake, you can read it here. In 2.5 years, my blog has gone through a lot of changes!
In a few weeks, Mal and I are hosting a fundraising party in Boston, so we’ve been contacting local businesses to donate prizes for the event’s raffles/silent auctions to raise money for Team in Training. Katie was kind enough to offer an AMAZING prize, so I met her today to discuss the details.
Local folks: Save the date – Thursday, September 30th. You’re all invited! Details to come! 😀
For lunch, we started with a freshly baked baguette. I ate at least three or four pieces with butter. I have zero control around French bread!
Then, the chef sent a wonderful appetizer to our table: jumbo scallops + pork belly. The dish was his take on bacon-wrapped scallops. It was definitely something special!
Holy flavor! I never knew I liked pork belly so much!
After the appetizer, the chef sent another dish. This time, it was Salade Nicoise, served with a thick piece of medium-rare tuna. It was also delicious, but I only took a few bites, so I could pace myself for the main course.
For my entree, I ordered the Belgian Endive Salad, which was served with a citrus dressing, big chunks of blue cheese, sliced apples, and walnuts.
After two appetizers, I was glad that I ordered a light entree!
I almost turned down dessert, but Katie offered to split the Alsace Brioche Bread Pudding with me. Chocolate-apricot bread pudding!?! Um, yes, sign me up!!
The bread pudding definitely put me over the edge, but it was totally worth it! I’d visit Brasserie Jo just to eat this dessert again. HOLY YUM!!
I also drank a cup of coffee with dessert.
It was much-needed on such a dank and dreary day.
I’m not used to 4-course meals at lunchtime. Now, I need a nap!
Get ready for the new Carrots ‘N’ Cake!!!
