31 cent Scoop Night

Don't forget - 31 cent scoop night is tonight! Head to your nearest Baskin-Robbins tonight to both satisfy your sweet tooth and to support America's firefighters.

Step Into The Sunshine

The title is actually a song that our children's choir used to sing. I had no idea that other kids were singing the same song - and this particular trio added a little flair that would make my brother jealous!!! (in addition to the fact that the kid is so young...)

Click here to check out the kids.

The Hat

I've seen The Hat all around Southern California as long as I've been here (yes, so that would be DECADES), but I've always just looked and passed by. Today, I finally got around to trying it. I got a turkey sandwich. Turkey? At a place famous for its pastrami? Yes, turkey, on the recommendation of the cashier. Also, you should know that I don't eat red meat.

My verdict?

Eh. Pass on the turkey. But if you like pastrami, I hear it's really good.
And if you order french fries - get a small matter how many fries you me.

Grilled Cheese Invitational

We attended the 1st 8th Grilled Cheese Invitational this year. For $10, unlimited Tillamook grilled cheese sandwiches and Pacific Foods tomato soup? YUM!

We also got kettle chips and Izze sparkling fruit juice to make it a complete, "balanced" meal.

Ohhhh Tillamook. It's so good. More pictures to come.

Milk Does A Body Good...

...Pass it on!

My brother ordered milk as his drink for dinner the other night to help his body recover from his workout. It made me think about the old OLD commercial that you just read a few seconds ago. With the wonder of YouTube, I'm able to share the commercial (at least one iteration of it) with you :)

Dollar Tuesdays @ Hot Dog On A Stick

I'm not sure how long this is going to last, but Hot Dog On A Stick has $1 hot dogs every Tuesday. It would be best to check their site each time you go...just in case the deal ends.

You can find it here.

Jamba Juice is celebrating their 20th anniversary, and they have a deal for all of their customers. Buy one drink off of the menu and get another one for free. This deal is good from today, April 12, through April 25. Just don't forget to print the coupon before you go! Get the coupon here!

Review: Pinkberry Cones

I was so excited to get a Pinkberry cone this weekend. But bad service combined with an unexpected product has led to this advice for you: If you're going to get Pinkberry, don't get it in a cone.

This is what happens...

They will ask you what topping you want, and fill the bottom of the cone with it (a cake cup cone), then swirl the equivalent of a Mini on top of the "toppings" (which are now...bottom-ings?!). The problem? The frozen yogurt is sitting on top of a shallow base and doesn't stick too much, so if you lick the yogurt, it will move. Mine moved from the cone to my purse. ARGH! What a mess.

I think my best suggestion would be...if you REALLY want the cone, ask for it on the side. Hopefully they'll do that for you. You'll enjoy the experience more, and your clothes/car/purse/surroundings will be safer too.

Get Shaved Ice

You really should get shaved ice...but not just from any "shaved ice" vendor. You HAVE to try the Get Shaved Ice Truck!

The Get Shaved Ice Truck travels with the Kogi BBQ truck. The shaved ice is like snow, not like the ice chunks you might get at other places. They offer lots of flavor options, and they're so good! You can even add sour spray, azuki beans, or ice cream. Luckily, it stops not too far from our house every Friday, so we can count on this delicious treat every week...even when we don't want to stand in line for the korean bbq tacos/burritos/quesadillas.

Check it out - and let me know what you think if you get to try it!

Pinkberry Update

Short and sweet...

Pinkberry announced a "new" MINI size - but they had introduced this size when they gave samples of their new mango flavor. They also premiered a Pinkberry you can have the whole "ice cream cone experience" with their frozen yogurt.


31 Cent Scoop Night @ Baskin-Robbins!

It's that time of the year - when you can donate to an honorable cause and get a tasty treat for doing it! Baskin-Robbins is honoring America's firefighters. The Baskin-Robbins CommunityFoundation is donating $100,000 to the National FallenFirefighters Foundation™ (NFFF). Just 31 cents will buy you a scoop of your favorite flavor!

Date: April 28, 2010
Time: 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

See you there!

Food of the 80s

I know this dates me, but I have to share...

There's this website (In the 80s) that allows people to reminisce about foods from the 80s. As I was looking through this list, I got happy seeing the snacks of my childhood! You should take a look. You'll probably be reminded of some favorite snacks too.

One of my favorite? Suddenly Smores by Nabisco. It was so simple - just a small package that you pop into the microwave. After a few seconds, you have two perfect little s'mores!

Enjoy your trip down memory lane.
