Sonic New Flavor Funnels and boneless wings

If your like me you absolutely love the Sonic commercials on TV. They have me laughing every time. Growing up in AZ we lived right around the corner from Sonic Drive In and went there all the time. Then I moved to the East Coast and there wasn’t one around. Now that I am back on the west coast, I am excited to eat there again.

Just in time for Sonic is introducing their new Flavor Funnels.

Sonic

They were amazing although I couldn’t really see the Flavor Funnel. The ice cream alone was so good and had tons of Oreos in it. I had my kids with me so we tried each flavor and they loved it.

I also tried out some of their new boneless wings which comes in 6 different flavors. Including Garlic Parmesan, Hot Honey, Pineapple Habanero, Asian Sweet Chili, Buffalo, Honey BBQ. Boneless and crispy made to perfection.
I tried the Honey BBQ and buffalo. They were perfect and I am going to be ordering more for Football games.

To set the Mood Pro-Flowers sent me a beautiful bouquet of roses as well as some Sherri’s Berrys and Cheesecake.

Amazing (mostly Edible) Science Review

We are a big science family. My kids specially love it, collecting data and watching the results is their favorite. Their favorite experiments are done in the kitchen. Science and cooking mixed is like a dream for them.

We received Amazing (Mostly Edible) Science book and my daughter has been non stop with trying all the recipes (experiments).

dscn3949

She has tried so many like the 5 minute ice cream, it turned out good but was a bit messy.
Right now she is working on making her own pickles from scratch, which can take up to a week. Her love for pickles has her waiting though.

The recipe in the book is a simple one.
You basically need a jar, cucumbers, salt water and a few other ingredients. Put them all together and let them sit for a few days until they become pickles.

dscn3950

This experiment will cost you less than $5 and is so simple. After about 3 days the jar definitely started to smell like pickles.

 

dscn3951

They turned out a little to sweet and not as tangy as we like our pickles. We had to do the experiment a second time as the first time,  the pickles started getting mold.   But with every experiment you should do it a couple times. So we will keep doing it until we get the results right.

You can find Amazing (Mostly Edible) Science on Amazon for $14.99

Atkins Makes Meal Planning Simple

I have been on a mission to lose weight since we moved to California. I’ve been hiking and hating the gym everyday, but felt I needed to do more so I started to meal plan. The Atkins Easy Peasy Meal kit makes, planning meals so easy and stress free.

You start with Shakes for Breakfast, a meal bar for snack and a yummy frozen meal for lunch and dinner. It was a hard adjustment at first but half way through the week, it became easier. The shakes were very good. The frozen meals were also good, well most of them. My favorite was the Taco bake bowls.
