Of course post number 300 would need to be about food, and what makes it better is that it's about cheap food!

Jamba Juice has breakfast for you now - in the form of oatmeal and fruit - and you can try it for a dollar! Coupon here...

Mario Unleashed

I just thought I'd post one of my favorite videos. Yes, I know it's not a new video, and many of you have seen it over and over, but I think it's awesome (I don't know you guys, but good job), so on the blog it goes. It makes me miss playing percussion. And anyone who's played mallets before knows that it takes skill to play it on your own, and even more if you're playing with someone else! Anyway, here it is...for your enjoyment...and also so I know I can find it later :)

Funnel Cake Fries

Don't they sound delicious? I mean, it makes sense that they would make these...but I've got to say that I was a little disappointed. When you buy them at a fast food restaurant (they have them at Hot Dog on a Stick and Farmer Boys), an order is 8 fries, each probably about the size of your pinky. Might as well save the money and buy a normal funnel cake at a farmer's market or amusement park.

Or you can buy a big pack (from your favorite warehouse store) and make them for yourself at home! That would probably be worth it...

Favorite News Anchor - Brian Williams

I've said it before - I'm a nerd because I have a favorite astrophysicist. But I'm thinking that it might be an understatement because I also have a favorite news anchor - Brian Williams.

Not only is he informative, but he's a funny guy too! He's awesome on the NBC Nightly News, but he's even better when he's on The Daily Show. The man can throw the comedic jabs just as easily as Jon Stewart...and not everyone can do that!

Just thought I'd share...

Cindy's Cinnamon Rolls

Before the days of Cinnabon, Cindy's ruled the cinnamon roll world. And guess what, I found them, and you can order them online! We used to buy these by the dozen - and it didn't matter what kind you got, they were always delicious! :)

So if you're needing a break from Cinnabon, you may want to try these. If you're a reminiscing foodie and were lucky enough to partake of these when they were in CA, you may want to get some delivered...mmmm.....

Oh, here's the link...

I'm a Vinegar Freak

I just realized that I have 8 bottles of vinegar in my kitchen.

White - the regular distilled stuff
Balsamic - used to be two bottles, one expensive and one for everyday use, but now we're down to just the good stuff...
White Balsamic - the family's favorite condiment on my chicken sandwiches
Sherry - strong stuff and in a big bottle, don't know how long it will take for me to finish this
Red Wine - for pretty much everything
Pear - sounds a little gourmet, huh?
Red Raspberry - this too...gourmet...will definitely be used in a salad dressing...
Apple Cider - another everything vinegar, but this one is raw, organic, unfiltered, and treat acid reflux?

Didn't realize that I loved vinegar so much...

I've Gone Ice Cream Crazy!

Since Haagen-Dazs announced that they would be changing their packaging from 1 pint to 14 oz., I've been kinda bummed. I mean, I can understand that everyone's trying to keep in the black, and sometimes the product has to change in order for companies to do that, but STILL! Kinda hurt my feelings. But Ben & Jerry's quickly cheered me up with their announcement that they plan to stay with their 1 pint packages.

So what did I do to deal with this little ice cream drama? Bought 7 pints. After I had just bought 1 quart of Haagen-Dazs chocolate. Here is the shopping list:

2 pints of Caramel Cone (Haagen-Dazs) - got'em! BEFORE they moved it to 14 oz.
1 pint of Gingersnap (New Ben & Jerry's) - hoping it's great! It's a limited edition...
1 pint of Mint Chocolate Cookie (Ben & Jerry's) - my sissy's ultimate favorite
1 pint of Half-Baked (Ben & Jerry's) - one of the sissy's faves
1 pint of Chunky Monkey (Ben & Jerry's) - classic, right?
1 pint of Blackberry Cabernet (Ciao Bella) - oh man, hope it's like the gelato from Spitz...then I can mix it with my Haagen-Dazs chocolate
And a single cup of Cherry Garcia (Ben & Jerry's) to complete the classic duo.

If you don't believe it, you just don't know!! Check it out:Now the question much of this am I going to share? :)

Toy Story Overload

I'm a big fan of the Toy Story movies - can't decide which of the two is better at the moment, but I can argue on each side. So I'm so excited that they're preparing to release them in 3-D (I guess I should start recruiting the sibs, cousins, nieces, and nephews to form an entourage to see these). But I'm more excited that Toy Story 3 is almost here!

So many movies for me to watch...

G.I. Joe
Transformers 2
Toy Story 3
Harry Potter

And those are only the kiddie movies that I want to see! My goodness...guess I better stock up on those movie tickets from Costco!
