Me and my fiancé are driving up to his mother's house today after a long overdue visit. One of the last things she mentioned during a recent telephone conversation was that she wanted to go visit the famous "Cake Boss" (Carlo's Bake Shop) in Hoboken, NJ. She loves what he does for his community, his great and positive attitude, and of course...his cakes!
Fiancé’s mission: Surprise his mother and take her to visit Carlos's Bakery and buy her delicious goodies.
My mission: Stay OP and resist temptation up the (excuse my language) Mother F'er!
This weekend has another surprise. We are taking a trip to Long Island NY as well to visit his father who will be having a cookout in our honor. His father is Puerto Rican; his father's wife is Italian (Big & heavy set woman) as I was told; who enjoys taking care of her family. So my imagination is running wild with the possibile food madness that could transpire.
I know what horrible oppositions are in front of me on the playing field today and tomorrow but I will to enter the game geared up and ready to go. I have my shakes, pre-made protein bars, TONS of water and drink mix, and packs of veggies. As preventative measures, my key phrases will be:
1. I am diabetic! I can't even taste that, sorry. *excuse me for those who are*
2. I just ate, I'm so stuffed I couldn't eat anymore.
3. I'm allergic to things that make me look like I did 20 lbs. ago!
For those who don't watch TV or know about him, Carlo's is a famous family owned Bake Shop that makes the best tasting, highest quality wedding cakes, along with other specialty goods in New Jersey. They have their own television reality TV show on TLC called "Cake Boss".
