Pink Lemonade Anyone?

I have discovered where pink lemonade comes from...

Pink Lemons!

I'm so serious. I found them at the Farmer's Market, and the guy was laughing because I asked if I could buy just one (they were a quarter each). Then he just gave me one for free :)

Pictures are on my sissy's camera, so I'll post when she sends them to me.
Their appearance is reminiscent of grapefruits, and are apparently more lemon-y. Unfortunately, they disappeared before I got to try them.

Dole Whip

I can't go to Disneyland without getting my Dole Whip fix. I think I've done it once or twice, and suddenly the "Happiest Place on Earth" was not so happy.

Good thing I got Dole Whip today! :) My brother recorded a video of our nephews eating Dole Whip and arguing about who would have to share with their mom - oh, and as they were arguing, they were turned to the sides of their strollers to protect their Dole Whip. Funny boys!

Hopefully I'll be able to post it soon...

Haagen-Dazs News

Or shall I say New Haagen-Dazs? They have a new line called "Five" - and as you can probably guess, it's their ultra premium ice cream made with only five ingredients.

Since the ingredient list is limited, the flavor list couldn't be too incredibly long either. But here are the flavors so far: Mint, Ginger, Coffee, Vanilla Bean, Brown Sugar, Passionfruit, and Milk Chocolate.

So keep your eyes peeled - and if you find it, please let me know where I can buy it!

White Socks

So I tried wearing regular white socks with dress shoes.

Can't do it. Don't know how some people can. Can someone share some insight?
Maybe I'll buy you a pair of black dress socks to use with your dress shoes :)

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

Wow - talk about lack of advertising. Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is finally coming to theaters. I finally saw a commercial last night, and it confirmed that the movie was coming out on February 27. Whoohoo! My movie card is quickly getting filled...

Okay, so my exposure to anything Australian is extremely limited. But luckily, my co-worker's husband is Australian, so she shares Australian treats with me every now and then. Today's treat were Lamingtons - cubes of yellow cake filled with jam, then rolled in chocolate icing and shredded coconut. So good! Talk about a proper sugar rush - this totally provided the rush and the satisfaction!

If I can find a decent recipe, I'll be sharing these soon :)

I'm Such a Nerd...

I have a favorite astrophysicist. Seriously. His name is Neil DeGrasse Tyson. And even though one of his campaigns hurts my feelings - he's the one who "proved" that Pluto was not a planet - he's still my favorite. So much so that I will be purchasing his book (The Pluto Files) sometime in the near future.

You should check him out...he makes his rounds on the talk show should be able to find clips online. Maybe you'll find that you're a nerd too! :) Or...if you are holding on to your childhood education, your feelings may be a little hurt. If you fall into that category and you have a Facebook page (BTW, I'm still trying to figure out what this whole Facebook thing is all about), you may want to add "When I Was A Kid, Pluto Was A Planet."

Thank You Denny's!

It was a wonderful gesture to offer America a free Grand Slam. Unfortunately, the line was too long and lunchtime was limited. It's so sad. I even had my choices all picked out. Pancakes, hash browns, eggs, and an English muffin to complete the deal. No meat for me.

Oh well, so sorry I missed it. Maybe next time. But not for free. :(
