Any excuse not to get on the freeway at 4:30 this afternoon, seeing Adeline off in the distance, landed me at Crixa. First of all, it was slim-pickins time of the day. But there were a few appealing choices left.

(1) Fatima's Thighs. I had one, in the car. I'd give it an "ok." I thought maybe there'd be some more nuanced flavors given its ingredients, and maybe there were, but I missed them. Maybe I was just very hungry and didn't pay attention to what I was eating. But I thought I was...

(2) Carmella. I had it this evening. "Moist chocolate chiffon cake with vanilla whipped cream, bittersweet chocolate mousse, and butterscotch caramel."

The verdict - mixed. I liked everything but the cake. The cake just either didn't fit the rest, or it was an off day for the cake. I thought the mousse, cream, and caramel were very very good. It gave me optimism for everything made with these products. It is the only cake product I've had there to date, so I can't make any conclusion.
