Street but Sweet

Can someone please pass the puke bucket?

I never thought this day would come--I actually want to lay off the desserts for a couple of days!

Our food mag is having its "dessert week," and the staff has been inviting us to try and rate a truckload of different desserts every day. Yesterday, I had me some yuuuuummy frozen brazo de mercedes and lemon torte. But today, they really set me to work! I thought all I had to do was try small samples of three different cakes (banana cream, chocolate oblivion, chocolate cake). But after I was through with those, they gave me samples of bar treats like rocky road and fudge brownies, almond roca (a winner!), cheesecake, cupcakes, cookies...and a parmesan stick for good measure. All in all, I sampled 20 different desserts. I actually had to pass on the Russian tea cookies (not a fan) and the oatmeal cookies (I don't really like raisins, unless they're in Cadbury Fruit and Nut. I especially don't like them in real food, like relleno and stuff!).

This, after a big meal at Mexicali! Groooooan.

    Tough job but somebody's got to do it...he he he.

    But don't the desserts taste the same after you tried them all in one go? Curious...

    I know! I feel silly for complaining, but it's been a good three hours and I still haven't recovered!

    They actually had apricot ginger cookies as palate cleansers. Would've been cool if I had me a cup of calamansi sorbet. Mmmm.

    Some of 'em were kinda similar na, like all the chocolate stuff, but there were still nuances in texture and sweetness.:)
