Today, my friends is Why Not Wednesday. Because...Why not? This post is not the faint of heart. I am writing this as I sip a Pamplemousse La Croix and practically mouth-breathe since I am still.so.full.
WHY NOT: Take your mama to Truluck's for her Birthday dinner and feast. And by feast, I mean nom so hard you have difficulty breathing. For reals.
We started with some vino and calamari (harmless, yet delightful). Momsie went for a Spanish Rioja and I played it smooth with a Pinot Noir.
And then came the mother-load. STONE.CRAB.CLAWS. I mean. If you have a shellfish allergy you need to stop reading right now or at least grab your epi-pen. Truluck's is famous for their stone crab claws. They are currently running a special right now through May. Every Monday, all you can eat stone crab claws for 69 monies. That spells trouble. It also spells you might go broke, and it also spells you'll need a prescription for Lipitor.
Now, after the juicy amazing beauties were totally demolished, our sweet sweet Raul brought out a totally decadent/sinful chocolate bread pudding that was topped off with flaming cherries jubilee/molten chocolate. My cholesterol is officially off the charts. (I haven't even mentioned the garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli that came with our order. It's embarrassing).
Needless to say, Mama & Daughter had a fantastic Birthday dinner, and that ain't no April Foolin'.
VERDICT: If you have a hankering for stone crab claws, hit up Truluck's. Don't even think about being on a diet, they will laugh in your face and kick you out.
This afternoon you will catch me running up and down the streets of Upper Kirby, tongue lolling, wheezing, and probably dangerously close to passing out as I attempt to burn off this meal. If you catch a glimpse, don't laugh, just keep on keepin' on. #WORTHEVERYBITE
Holla. And as always,
