It was date night

Last night Old What’s Her Face decided she wanted to go to dinner. She mentioned La Tapatia, which is one of our favorite places. The food was phenomenal, like always.

The service was a bit slower than usual, but that seems to be a theme everywhere. I’ve even seen some places close for a day or two because they don’t have employees available.

During this waiting period we did what all loving couples do in the modern era. We gazed into each other’s eyes. Scratch that. We picked up our cell phones and ignored each other like a true American couple.

I spotted something on Facebook that Krispy Kreme has pumpkin doughnuts available already.

We swung by and picked up a dozen on the way home.

The one with the swirly top is supposed to be a pumpkin cappuccino, and new on the list. There is also a pumpkin cheesecake filled variety, but our dozen didn’t include any of those.

I wanted to taunt everyone about how awesome they were. However, they really weren’t. They were all pretty bland, and if you handed me one and asked me what the flavor was, I could not tell you. Guess we fell victim to marketing, but the product didn’t deliver.

Right now, I’m watching the Star Wars marathon, and blogging. Old What’s Her Face is currently making her own cheese cake. Bet it’s a damned sight better than those doughnuts were.

  1. Those look delicious. Don’t think we have any Krispy Kremes around here.

  2. MMMMM homemade cheesecake. Yum. I have never been fond of Crispy Cream donuts. Don’t know why either. I guess I like the oil saturated deep fried.

  3. Glad you had a night out. Sorry the donuts didn’t live up to what they should have been. But homemade is always better. We ordered BBQ ribs and they came with no sauce. I think it’s part of the universe’s plan to disappoint. Thankfully, we had Sweet Baby Ray’s in our fridge. But my theory is that things are going awry right now. Hope the homemade made everything right.

  4. I’m less than ten minutes from a Krispy Kreme and have never stepped foot in it. I can pass on donuts. But if there was a Cheesecake Factory? I’m afraid I’d be stopping by for a Reese’s PB slice every day.

  5. Mmmm, save me some homemade cheesecake! It’ll be worth the plane ticket, I’m sure! 😁

  6. The donuts may have fallen short on flavor, but they are very eye-appealing. 🙂 And how many times have we all fallen victim to a marketing ploy? I’m raising my hand over here. Nothing beats homemade anything!

  8. It’s good to get away from the routine once in a while. I’m sorry the donuts did not meet your expectations. Krispy Kremes are usually scrumptious. That picture made my mouth water.🤤🍩 At least the food was good. There’s nothing like a homemade cheesecake. Yum. I hope you enjoyed it.

    Glad you had a date night, even if it was disappointing where the food and service were concerned. Hope you enjoyed the wife’s cheescake better than the doughnuts.
