Recap 2017; Top 7 Favorite Food Finds

I thought writing this entry would be easy… but as I was (endlessly) scrolling through my photos of food of 2017 I realized… this isn’t going to be as easy as I thought.

In my mind 2017 was divided between the last bit of my life in Florida and the beginning bit of my life in Texas; through Ubereats I discovered a lot of food I fell in love with before I left Florida and through DoorDash and adventures with Bubba there’s a lot of food I discovered in Texas. But I tried to narrow it down to the foods I would go back to. So while this isn’t a complete list of foods I found to be my favs this is a list of foods I loved enough to buy more than twice.

Let’s start with what I discovered in Florida:

Krispy Kreme adventures

I’m part of the Krispy Kreme rewards program (because when I lived in Florida I had to get my weeks worth every weekend) and I had gotten an email about half off a dozen assorted donuts so naturally I was like, hell yes.

I absolutely appreciate that my boyfriend knows that the majority of the time I buy snacks to take photos of them. And he totally understands. Well, as much as he can.

So we went and grabbed a dozen donuts and I had the hardest thing picking which ones. But the chocolate sprinkles are by far my favs!

Sadly the Snowman was crushed on the way home.

Fort Worth, TX: Sushi Nikko

On a trip to Kohls I couldn’t decide what to eat and saw a Sushi place listed somewhere in the plaza we were in and suddenly, I wanted Sushi.

So we set out to find this Sushi Nikko place!

We started with the “Summer Meets Winter” roll which had a lot of really good stuff in it and was topped off with Coconut shavings. Here’s the actual description:

Crab Meat, Eel inside, Mango, Avocado, Coconut Sprinkle on Top

And it was goooood! I don’t know what that sauce on it was but it was a nice balance for all the different flavors going on in the roll.

I had debated between getting Udon on a Bento Box and ended up getting the Teriyaki Beef Bento Box in the end and I absolutely regret nothing!

The Gyoza’s were PERFECT! I’m so sad I only got two and the Ginger Dressing on the salad was so satisfying! It’s crazy — I typically don’t like Ginger, at all. But I love love love Ginger Dressing at Sushi places! Everything about this plate was just amazing. I loved it all!

I’m glad my boyfriend enjoyed it as well since Sushi isn’t his first choice when it comes to finding a place to eat lol. I hope to go back and try the Udon next!

Snack; Dragon’s Breath

I don’t remember where I came across Dragon’s Breath from — but I’m gonna assume Instagram as that’s where I come across 90% of my food discoveries. As far as I know though there were only primarily places in SoCal to get this (as it seems like that’s suddenly the hub for getting the newest types of snacks, lucky them!) so when I saw a kiosk at the mall here selling them on Black Friday I didn’t waste much time picking one up.

It was actually really hard to snap a photo of the smoke coming off of it! And sadly that effect didn’t last too long.

They’re dumped into I believe Nitrogen and flash frozen. So touching one is like touching a frozen pole, stuff like that freaks me out so I used the pokey stick. My boyfriend however didn’t care too much and just started popping them in his mouth.

The crunch to them was kinda painful in that “tooth freeze” kind of way but you did blow out smoke as you bit down on it. It was a cool effect even if you couldn’t yourself see yourself do it. And even if it was just for a short time.

The taste overall for this snack however I didn’t care too much for… I thought they were cereal balls and my boyfriend said they were Cheetos. I think I read somewhere they ARE Cheetos of some sort… despite the bright colors? Strange.

(Also strange, I’m listening to relaxing sounds on YouTube right now that claim to rid you of headaches and anxiety and my headache is slowly fading, uhm has this practice always been a thing?!)

It was a pretty fun experience but not something I’d make a habit of doing. But glad I could cross it off my foodie bucket list!

Have you ever or ever wanted to try Dragon’s Breath?

Weekly Recap; Nov 5th – Nov 11th

I can’t believe how fast this year is just FLYYYYYING on by! It’s pretty much mid November now meaning Thanksgiving is not too far away and once that happens it’s full blown Christmas until the end of next month.

The temp has been dropping here like crazy and I’m pulling out all my hoodies and I need to find my sweaters as well as reorganize my closet to fit all the winter clothes now that summer is finally gone!

Weekly Recap; Oct 22nd – Oct 29th

I know I’m posting this 2 days late; I was totally fine Saturday night at Bubba’s nephew’s birthday party and I was fine when I went to bed that night. Then at around 3am-ish I woke up with a massive headache and my whole entire body ached. By the time I woke up Sunday morning I couldn’t get out of bed from how much pain I was in. I had a fever and chills and achy joints. I also threw up about 4 times through out the day. I felt a little bit better yesterday, enough to get up at least. But today I’m back to feeling icky. I don’t have a fever but the aches, chills and headache are still here x(.
