Raise your hand if you just knew my first post about Iceland was going to be food-related! Typical, right? When we arrived in Iceland, our first stop was Reykjavik, where we hung out for our first day before heading off to the Golden Circle. We ended up passing through Reykjavik a few other times on our trip, which meant we got to try a lot of different food around the city. Spoiler alert: all of it was amazing!
Disneyland: the one place children look forward to standing in line all day so they can get on their favorite rides – Splash Mountain, Pirates of the Caribbean, and my personal favorite, Tower of Terror (seriously, the best). But when you’re 23 with no kids and married to a chef, it’s the place you go to eat. Both Disneyland and California Adventure have tons of good food and there’s a lot that you can’t find anywhere else, so you have to make the most of your visit!
We only spent two days in the parks this time around, so we definitely didn’t get everywhere we wanted to, and I’m far from being a Disney expert, but I think we rounded up some pretty delicious options for you to try out the next time you’re there. Also, please excuse my sub-par photos – I really didn’t want to lug around my DSLR all day in the parks. So without further ado, let’s start with Disneyland.
I have to say, my Trader Joe’s review posts are probably some of my favorites to write. Or, I should say, prepare for – because it basically means I get to eat a bunch of really unhealthy and sugary food at the same time and take pictures of the process. This past week, all of the Trader Joe’s holiday products showed up, so obviously I had to indulge.
I know my last post (the pumpkin one) was a little late in the month of October and probably didn’t give you a lot of time to go try all the things I recommended (although some of that stuff is still in stores, so you still can), so I’m making an effort to post this one early-ish in the month so you can go eat delicious things!
TJ’s has a lot of food gifts going on right now, so I bought a few of those so you’ll know what to buy your friends, and also a few yummy things you’ll probably want to save for yourself. Maybe you’ll buy something with the intention of giving it to a friend, and instead, you’ll eat it. No judgement here.
Long time, no see, am I right? Work has been way too crazy lately and I have not had the motivation or time to blog at all. I’ve been spending most of my free time camped in front of the TV or curled up on the couch with a book, and it’s been amazing to recharge over the last week or so. No promises I’m going to be more consistent anytime soon, but I’ll be here whenever I can!
Also, part of my rejuvenation ritual is going to Trader Joe’s every Saturday night. “What,” you say, “how can grocery shopping be rejuvenating, especially on a Saturday night?” Trust me. There’s something so comforting about walking between those frozen food aisles, tasting the chicken pot pie, and chatting with the cashier who probably knows me as “that weird girl who comes here every Saturday night at 8:00 pm.”
The great thing about going to TJ’s on a weekly basis is that you never miss anything new. I was there the day they got all their pumpkin goodies into the store and I went crazy. And now I’m here to share the best and the worst of what I got from my Trader Joe’s pumpkin haul.
I try not to post too many recipes on here, because honestly, recipes are boring and I doubt many of you come here for them. But these pumpkin spice donuts that I made yesterday are way too good not to share and I’m way too proud of them to not talk about them.
