BOBA!

Damn you, genebob!!!

I was all snuggly in my pajamas, recently showered, watching TV and playing games. That's when the IM came from genebob. A single word. Boba.

He knows my weakness for Boba. Those of you not familiar with this, it's a drink (usually sweetened and creamed tea, or a fruit smoothie) which has these quarter-inch black tapioca balls at the bottom. You drink it with a really fat straw so that sometimes a yummy, chewy bubble comes up the straw.

Thankfully, there is a Lollicup about midway between our houses. I believe we were there within a half-hour. Yes, I changed out of my jammies. :) We sat around drinking our Boba in the Korean Internet Cafe, and I bought lots of pastries (red bean, milk custard, banana-shaped banana bread). Afterwards, we took a stroll around the grocery store. It's so interesting to look at all of the foods, especially the things considered 'treats'. I got some candy for the boys, which they'll love. The best part was deciding to have my own Dim Sum. I found pork dumplings, shrimp dumplings, pork steamed buns, shrimp balls, all manner of Dum Sum fare. No sticky rice, though :(. Today or tomorrow, we'll steam and pan-fry all of this up and have a great meal. There was a second bakery stop, which I limited to two items.

After parting ways, I came home and settled down to a small slice of EVERY SINGLE KIND of pastry I bought. So yummy.

It made for an unexpected, yet delightful, break for the evening.

apology
I'm sorrrry!

{giggle} I'm amazed that Scott allowed you out of the house to rendezvous with another man!

Yeah, the place is named Escapé and is an Internet cafe/bakery. I suspect their baked goods come from Emma Bakery, which is inside the adjoining May Hua market. Since they were out of lychee (they should've bought some from the grocery next door) I opted for a MANGO boba (a/k/a pearl tea a/k/a bubble tea) which was waaay refreshing.

Now I'm gettin' a hankerin' for another one. Damn you, Trish-Bob!!!

PS: I still think you should've just left on your jammies. Do you think anyone in Plano would've noticed?
