Iced Coffee Should Always be so Yummy!

Here's a photo of the best tasting iced coffee
I've had so far this year. It has that hazelnut flavor
I really love. (I drank a little of the iced coffee

before snapping this photo.)

I bought this iced coffee on Sunday, in the
drive thru of Freeway McDonald's restaurant (near Kmart)
in Ontario, Oregon. The guy who made it did a great job!

Thank you!

Actually, I've ordered iced coffee at Jack in the Box more often this year and have been to four or more of those restaurants, generally buying it at the drive-thru window.

I also drank iced coffee beverages from two Burger King locations. The two iced coffees tasted quite different to me, and the second of the two was way too sweet for me and didn't seem like there was as much caffeine as the first time, when it was very good and very competitive in terms of quality and flavor.

But the McDonald's iced coffee beverage is better than the others, so far. The plastic cup says this is (made with) "Premium Roast Coffee" and it sure tastes like an excellent coffee to me. Maybe I'll write more at a later date.

There! That's all. I'm finished with this post. I just thought you should know. haha Ok take care. See ya.

Rock Music

This evening, I drove up at the right time, because I like rock music and one of my favorite rock songs came on the radio: "Best of You" by Foo Fighters. It's going to be in my list of top songs of the decade. That's for sure!! I'm thinking about writing a top 20, or maybe a longer list, but not sure whether it will be posted on this blog, another blog or remain unpublished.

I'd also like to come up with a list of (what I consider to be) the best rock songs -- going back to the '70s anyway -- though it would NOT be based on sales, popularity or how many times the songs were played on the radio. On this list, there also could be tracks that were not released as 'singles' and possibly not played on the radio. Yes, I do like the freedom of speech to tell my friends about my favorite songs, albums, movies, TV shows, foods, etc.

I'm also drinking the best iced coffee I've had so far this year. If I got a good photo, I'll post it later. Just remember, your memories matter! Be who you are! And have fun!

For some reason, the blog is acting up, perhaps it's a computer virus but I'm not sure. Anyway, this is just a note to explain that earlier problems caused it to publish when I tried to save a draft and also caused the photo to not show up the first time. Hope the blog works now and you can see the post. Thanks for your patience.

On this particular early-morning trip to Jack in the Box

I had to ask for some half and half
and sugar because the iced coffee
was a touch on the strong side, but
it didn't really make me as strong as
the photo, which was not edited,

seems to suggest.

Yeah, I'm barely able to hold up the iced coffee so early in the morning but that doesn't mean I'm a total basket case. I have pride, a sense of humor and a way with words. God bless me! I need it!

The photo gives the impression that I could fight monsters bigger than buildings, though the cup is very small compared to and a number of feet below that big Jack in the Box sign which has the appearance of a pretty, giant cube. At least if you are like me and you have a thing for fast-food signs.

Anyway, monsters?? Oh, I'm scared! I'm not joking now because I didn't write "haha" and, even though I don't believe there are monsters out there somewhere that want to fight me, I wouldn't want them to think I was laughing at them, if there were monsters, that is. Besides, if I saw such a monster, I'd be the first one out of the restaurant. But they better not get near my iced coffee.

I do like Jack in the Box's iced coffee. The first time I drank it was the best, although I would have to say the most recent time I had their iced coffee (not pictured), it also tasted great! Creamy, slightly sweet, smooth and not bitter, I felt it was nearly as good as McDonald's iced coffee, though somewhat different in flavor.

The pictured iced coffee was from another Jack in the Box restaurant. I sensed the coffee was freshly brewed but wasn't creamy enough or thoroughly stirred in and the flavor was alright but it wasn't very sweet. Like I already pointed out, I stirred in sugar and half and half. Then the iced coffee was the way I like it.

In my opinion, McDonald's still has the best iced coffee in flavor and consistency. I'll keep trying other iced coffees, and see what I think.

Famous brand soda-flavored cake, plus citrus pucker power!

I bought this 7 UP Lemon Lime Creme Cake
and some kumquats at the grocery store. I wrote
about the dessert last time.

The cake was a bit dry, not moist enough, though it was flavorful. I added small, thin pieces of pineapple, finely chopped kumquats and citrus fruit juices, and it became a yummy dessert. I already had the Moro orange (also known as a blood orange), larger pieces of fresh pineapple and the lime in the refrigerator.

Speaking of the fridge, that's where I'm going right now.

Looks like a very elegant dessert for a picnic in paradise...

even though this was just my way
of having some creative fun with food
on Friday evening.

The cake was from the grocery store. I decorated it
with pineapple, kumquats, and the juice of
a lime and a Moro orange, and powdered sugar on top. Also,
those are thin lime slices, which kinda look like cute little green wheels. The cake was not moist enough, so I feel the fruit and fruit juice really helped improve the quality of the dessert.

I shared with my folks and they said they liked it. I'm
glad they said that, because then I can say they said it and of course
it makes me look good.

My other final paragraph, which I decided to add back went something like: Even if beauties dressed for the beach, which wouldn't be over-dressed, of course, had stopped by for a bite to eat, I would have had to say: NO! Because now I'm just saying No to temptation. Umm... until next Friday, anyway. haha

Ok, just a question: Did anybody give up kissing and hugging for Lent? I thought not. Well, if you're not getting any, like me lately, you can't give it up. Ooh I'm so funny! My eyes just did that dance from side to side, like way too silly for description.

Anyway, I want to give up NOT kissing and hugging but it doesn't have anything to do with religion. However, it would be cool to find a single, available church girl, or two, in their (I mean her) 20's to 40's, who also want (yeah, "wants", she wants) to give up not kissing and hugging. I still have a goofy expression on my face. Now I must go in search of fast food. Who knows, maybe I'll even see you out there somewhere, but I doubt it. Stay cool. See ya later!

I don't eat fast food all the time

Before noon Sunday, I started to peel, slice
and grate vegetables, then cooked this Borshch, which is full of
vegetables but no meat, the way I was taught
many borshchs ago. Beetroot, carrots, cabbage and potatoes are some of the fresh ingredients.

For a few minutes

this moon made me think of romantic love.
But since that's a painful subject,
my unexpected urge to go out for french fries
and a soft drink proved to be an
excellent distraction.

However, a little later I decided to eat what was here, some simple food. Tonight I'll go out, get iced coffee or soda and maybe a small meal or snack. And try not to think about love some more. Feel free to join me. And don't take me too seriously because I am basically joking around. And no, as far as I know I'm not originally from the moon. Take it easy!

Friday AM, Just Past Midnight, and not much open

I went to a Burger King
drive-thru and ordered a Mocha Joe
iced coffee. (It says "Mocha Joe" on the
order slip.)

This is the the most delicious iced coffee-type of beverage I've had in weeks. But it's been a while since I've been to McDonald's for their iced coffee. Guess where I'm going tonight?!

Anyway, I like the this picture because it reminds me of how I looked years ago. And while it's nobody else's business how many years ago that was, I had a Kiss T-shirt on in one picture. The rock group Kiss was one of my favorite bands back then, and I went to one of their concerts. Talk about excitement and fun! I even wrote about the concert. That was a lot of fun too. Some people wish they could relive past experiences. I'd rather just turn on the radio and listen to rock music, while I'm drinking iced coffee. That's what I'll be doing tonight! Take it easy.Posted by Picasa

So Late It's Early!

My late-night (or is it early morning?)
SNACK! It was 3:30 a.m. and everyone probably was
asleep in this time zone --well not everyone, but
it has the sound of a book I would never finish--
and of course I'm only referring to humans, not the outline
on the wall.

What I'm holding here in my hand is the Supreme Croissant
from Jack in the Box. I went to their drive-thru on the way back here
(No, I'm not saying I live inside this blog, though that would be kinda cool)
after an outing which included shopping and drinking a small milkshake, small soda and three ice coffees at different locations. It's now 4:40 a.m., Friday morning. I think I'll be up for a while, perhaps until Saturday. Haha better mean I'm joking this time. Now I think I'll wind down by watching a TV show. And yeah, I probably would seem more real if I were a sitcom character. There's a silly expression on my face right now. No, you really don't want to see a photo!

Homemade Fish & Chips Meal

Battered and fried Chilean Sea Bass fillet,
homemade french fries with peas and fresh seedless grapes.

We ate this meal to celebrate a friend's birthday. The fries and two pan-fried Chilean Sea Bass fillets (one pictured on the plate above) were prepared and cooked by Mom. The fish was very flaky, moist and flavorful, and made me feel good inside.
