We finally made it to Tropical Sno!
Ah yes, the famous, blue and white shack serving sugar coated snow, basically.
I used to come here almost every single day during the summer in high school. Once after the pool or beach (well, river beach) and once at night with “the gang.” What was your high school hang out spot?
My favorite flavor used to be Tiger’s Blood (I know, weird) which is an uber-sweet concoction of strawberry and coconut. I saw that they’ve added mango to their menu since my days, so I got strawberry mango!
Just like I remembered!
HUGE, cold, icy and sweet.
Ok, REALLY sweet.
Ben and I both devoured ours…
Then decided that it would be awhile before we could come back. Sugar belly!
Regardless, it was a fun little summer date activity and fun to reminisce!
In other news, guess what I woke up to this morning? Guess?! MORE RAIN!
This has been the rainiest June I can remember, but honestly I can’t complain because 99% of the time it’s raining, I’m at work. It’s usually clear in the early morning when my Mom and I walk, and in the afternoons/evenings when I run.
I really feel bad for all those summertime, child-care providers! They’re busting out a lot of arts and crafts projects this summer, I’m assuming.
I remember when I was a day camp counselor in Japan for a summer in college, one of the months we were there was during the rainy season. Every single day for that month, it would just POUR for like 3 hours, non-stop, which meant that we were utilizing the craft room…a lot. I was seriously scared my little 2nd graders were going to turn on me if I made them create another God’s eye from popsicle sticks and yarn…
At any rate, before the showers came down, I managed to snap a pic of my breakfast outside – a Bagel Thin + Almond Butter!
This basically used up the last of my crunchy roasted flaxseed almond butter jar… which I may or may not be utilizing for another type of breakfast tomorrow.
I stand behind my review of these Bagel Thins. I wish the bottom half was a little thicker, but overall – real good!
Due to Ben’s decision to opt for a meatball Subway sandwich for dinner last night, I get Grilled Asian Tofu leftovers for lunch! Wheee!
I forgot to tell you that I added a couple drops of sesame oil and a couple shakes of sesame seeds on top of the dish.
Sesame oil is one of my very favorite ingredients because a little goes a looooooong way. It’s such a deep and satisfying flavor. A little dab’ll do ya!
I also packed a container of sweet, succulent cherries.
All together now!
In other news, I have a hilarious/exciting package to pick up today that I can’t wait to show you guys tomorrow. It’s…funny…!!!
On that note – it’s almost FRIDAY! TGIAF dance! What are you doing this weekend?
And on that note – it’s Three Question Thursday!
1. Did you go to summer camp as a kid?
2. Are you a procrastinator?
3. What’s your favorite ride at the amusement park?
1. Heck yes! My favorite being horse camp when I was in 4th grade. Being the shortest girl in camp, I got the shortest horse in camp. Brownie was practically a pony, and we were like this.
2. THE WORST! However, I feel like I work best under pressure.
3. Bumper cars when I was little, roller coasters now!!
