Drink: Pret à Manger Ginger Beer
Eats & Treats: I ate all the local specialities on a recent visit to St. Louis: barbeque, “gooey butter cake,” and “toasted ravioli.”
Garb: Just had some favorite black boots resoled…even though it’s almost sandal season.
Beauty Products: ColourPop Blotted Lip lip color in Drip ($5!)
Pleasure: A day in the Hudson River Valley with a visit to the historic Lyndhurst mansion
Worry: Weird ongoing airsickness after above-mentioned flight to St. Louis. It seems to be tapering off, though.
Ahhh this post reminded me that I bookmarked a recipe for gooey butter cake quite a while ago, and never made it! (I’ve also never tased it before, so I don’t know how it tastes-did you like it?). Hope the airsickness wears off quickly!
I did like it! Its texture reminded me of lemon squares, but its flavor is just pure butter and sugar!! At least, that’s the “original” version. I went to a cafe that had many other varieties—chocolate chip, cranberry walnut, etc. etc.!
I think my inner ears got messed up on the plant…decongestants finally seemed to help. Ugh! Thanks!
