Happy Veteran's Day everyone. It's a day to honor those that served the country. I thank them for what they have done to help protect the country.
So, for Veteran's Day, Applebee's was having a promotion that all Veteran's will get a free meal on Veteran's Day. How do I know this? I went there today. We were greeted right away and we barely waited 2 minutes before we were seated. There were so many people there today though.
So, here is what I ordered:
I also went to the store today and I saw this soda box arrangement:
Anyway, I guess I have some food reviews. It's going to take a while Bear with me!
So, one of the things I have to review is this:
PowerBar Protein Plus Dulce de Leche. I just had to try this flavor. I mean, it's dulce de leche. I love dulce de leche. I bought it at the bookstore and it was expensive. I guess it was worth the price. It wasn't anything special. It was chocolate outside with a sweet protein chew mixture in the inside. It was pretty much a decent bar.
The next bar is this:
Blueberry Crisp Clif Bar. This was isn't chocolate but it's blueberry. I love blueberries. When I ate this, it was like a chewy blueberry muffin. It's delicious! I also like how the almond pieces give it a bit of a crunch. It's nice. It's my favorite non-chocolate Clif Bar.
Another non-chocolate bar is this:
Nature Valley Trail Mix Fruit & Nut Bar. This bar was alright. I liked it but it's not the best. It's chewy, hearty and tastes almost like the kashi ones but without as many almonds. This bar is really nice though and the cranberries were nice. I will eat this again if I ever come across it.
Another thing you have to try is this:
So, on Friday, I went to a Chinese restaurant just to buy this to eat:
Yes. It's the Hong Kong egg puffs. I've been craving for them since I left the motherland back in July. I haven't eaten them since. I remember getting these a lot in Taishan and in Hong Kong. Eating these gave me back memories and the tastes was almost the same.
I also went to this crepe place and got this (how do you pronounce crepe?):
Later on Friday, I made Macaroni salad and M&M cookies .
The next day, I went food shopping a bit with my mom. Here's some things we bought:
I wanted to pie the pumpkin flavored Clif bar but the store wasn't selling it. I was so sad. But, hey, at least I got the Clif Peppermint Stick and the Clif Gingerbread. We also bought the Asian Sesame Ginger Vinaigrette and the Sarah Lee 100% whole wheat with honey bread. I checked the ingredients and it's 100% whole grain. I just don't like this bread's high calorie content. 100 calories for a slice. The sandwich thins are 100 calories. I haven't tried this Sara Lee bread yet but once I do, I'll review it along with Justin's All Natural Chocolate Almond Butter. I can't wait to try it.
So, I've already eaten the Clif Bar Peppermint Stick.
So, the weather around here has been really cold. No me gusta. It also rained on Thursday. I guess you know that winter is coming soon. I'm sorry for not posting for a while. I've been busy.
I guess that's all I have to say.
How do you celebrate Veteran's Day (if you do celebrate it)?
Do you like crepes?
