Do you ever see something on a menu or at a restaurant and then think about it until you get it?

My boss took us out to lunch today at a new restaurant near the office. Its a modern-comfort-food-too-fancy-to-be-a-diner diner. Does that make sense?

Back to the subject at hand, my new obsession. They had a 21+shake section on their menu. Yes, you read that right, SHAKES WITH BOOZE. I can't remember the name of my obsession shake, all you need to know is it was vanilla ice cream, vanilla vodka, and a twinkie. In a blender. Sounds like something angels would sing about.

I ordered the Kitchen Sink Salad - romaine lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, chickpeas, kidney beans, feta and balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!!! While I was eating that great salad I watched a man devour the twinkie shake. How did I know it was the same shake? It comes garnished with a twinkie. Heart-Attack-City. I know.

I thought about the shake all day, that is until my motivational partner, WW College Girl Pointed the fried banana nuggets at Peanut Butter & Jenny out to me! I can't wait to try these. I love all things banana, and at least the point will be reasonable. Shake? What shake?

Since I ate an early, large lunch, I didn't eat any snacks today. Dinner was a Perdue baked chicken patty on a sandwich thin and some butternut squash fries from Hungry-girl.com. They were great.

There are my new cookbooks in the background. Can't wait to look through them and get some good recipes.

Have a great night!


  1. oooh and write reviews of the cookbooks perhaps?

    for us cooking challenged so we know if they'd work for US?


  2. Wow. Good for freaking you having such an awe-inducing shake experience so close, yet sticking to your guns and eating something healthy.

    But now it seems I have a new obsession, too. I mean seriously, Twinkies and Vodka? OHMYGOD.

  3. Best part - I a not a HUGE twinkie fan. They combo just looked so right. Maybe a weight-watcher-fied twinkie vodka shake will be one of my next recipe challenges.....
