And They Say

One of many things on my to do list is this task: Find yummy places to eat, maybe a place that has been feature on a show on The Food Network like Diners Drive-ins & Dives (why is that so hard to say) or Best Thing I Ever Ate. Me and BF are roadtrippen it through about 3/4 states so I'm hoping were bound to come across some place? Holler if you know any.

We had yummy kabobs on Friday night, and burgers and the rest of the kitchen on Sunday.

BF and I got stopped at a checkpoint on Saturday night. Well everyone got stopped you know not just us lol. And since we were obviously not drunk and BF's license is more than valid, they looked over us quickly and said goodnight. We couldn't go anywhere though because the police were still talking to the truck in front of us, so the kind police gave us an informational brochure to look at, to pass the time I guess. Brochures given to me usually go from my hand to trash can pretty quickly but this one was interesting, "$10,000 for a DUI." Umm wow what a way to spend your money =/

Have you ever seen these at the Grocery Store? Ice cream treats for dogs!? Well this little guy got to try them this weekend and he loooovedd them! I think these few pictures I snapped of him are so cute, his face was such a disaster, sticky yucky mess! But he was really beyond happy to have a treat like that =)

Some TV shows I started watching! Toddlers & Tiaras on TLC. I've only watched two full episodes but I think its a new favorite, the last episode with the blonde that did Michael Jackson, "Kylie"I think her name was, oh my gosh I wanted to squeeze the cute out of her, ha! And Holly's World, on E! I really had no desire to watch it but last week I caught two reruns in a row and that's pretty much all it takes for me to get hooked! I cant say that my boyfriend gets any enjoyment out of watching it but I am loving it, ha! A show that receives only a slight groan from him is Bravo's Bethenny Gets Married. There are few moments in the show that make him laugh too so its not complete torture for him to watch it with me.

Yea so pretty much all I did this weekend was cook and eat. I made Jello Jigglers again, this time star shape. BF loved them and I didn't eat any but had so much fun admiring their cuteness. Oh and twice as much fun making them-I was stirring the Jello before I poured it into the molds right and somehow a bunch splashed on my hand and burned the heck out of me. Ouch. Hot hot Jello is nooo fun.
Oh and I made a watermelon bombe. Using this recipe from a blog from my favorite collections.. Mine definitely didn't look anything like that picture :( haha but it was carrying some weight! I don't think I even used all the ice cream or who really knows what I did, because I don't follow recipes well. But what I do know is that it was heavy. 9 POUNDS heavy! I made everybody lift the bowl when it was setting out to thaw and then we weighed it on the scale and sure enough, almost 10 pounds of ice cream. Love it! But not really. I'd like it so much more if it was like Cookies&Cream or something, I'm not lime sherbet's biggest fan!

Have you had Dr Pepper Cherry? I'm a huge Dr. Pepper fan but believe it or not I hadn't event yet tried the cherry kind til last week. Verdict? Its alright. Not too crazy cherry-like you know? I'd prefer the regular kind though.
That's it for now, take care. I miss you!! I'll be away, packing and saying goodbye to the last 21 years of my life. Wish me luck with that.

Sweetheart! I'm so impressed that you made the watermelon bombe! I soooo wanted to this past weekend for the holiday but just ran out of time. You know we are both cookies n cream girls, so I was curious to know if it was really all the rage...do you think we could make it with different flavors of ice cream and it would still taste good?

A big Trishy hug and kiss to you xoxoxo
