Mama Crunk turned 61 today! Can you believe this woman is 61?
We celebrated with cupcakes and Chinese takeout. I drove to Jonesboro, and my mama and me got in her car and drove to Oriental Express. I got the General Tso's Tofu with extra veggies.
And we got an order of Vegetable Tempura to split. They assured me that they didn't use eggs in the batter. Our order had battered sweet potato (or was it carrot?), green beans, and mushrooms. The mushrooms were my fave.
Before I left for Jonesboro, I stopped by Cassi's Pink Diva Cupcakery and picked up three Cookie Butter Cupcakes to bring with me.
I love how having Cassi's bakery across from my house means me never having to bake a dozen cupcakes when we only need just a few. This was a new flavor — chocolate cake stuffed with Trader Joe's Chocolate Cookie Butter, cookie buttercream, and a Speculoos cookie on top. Both my parents loved these.
In fact, while my mama and me were picking up the takeout, my daddy was busy sneaking bites of the frosting on his. Here's what his looked like when we got back with dinner.
After he ate the whole thing, he gave the cakes a thumbs up!
After dinner and cakes, mama opened presents while we watched Dancing with the Stars. And then I drove home. Happy birthday, Mama Crunk!
