Happy Friday!

So this little nugget of goodness made the most popular rounds on my Instagram account.
It was really good.  Coffee-Oreo ice cream with extra jimmies.
That photo is like 3D.

Umm, speaking of ice cream  Hello Haagen Daz!
Please send this to me!

And for a healthier choice to ice cream, try this Coconut Bliss dark chocolate bars.
I had no idea they were that good; tastes like a fudgesicle only better. And way less fat, without
sacrificing taste.

Did I ever tell you how much I love the owner of the cape cod dairy queen?
I know you've seen me post his other messages.

Sometimes living on cape cod does have it's perks.
This guy here is a 2.5 pounder and he was delish!

That cocktail sauce will put hair on your chest!
Seafood from Cape Fish & Lobster.

My mimosa tree is blooming!
During Hurricane Sandy I lost half the tree and didn't think he would make it,
but so far he's bouncing back ok. Not perfectly and it's still half a tree but I just
can't cut him down at this point.

It was national hot dog day. Did you celebrate?  LOL
Here is my version of quick & easy cheese corn dogs.
I used Trader Joe's cornbread mix as the batter, and added some cheese to it.
Came out perfectly.  Super crispy.
Make sure to pick up Trader Joe's corn relish to serve with these.
