So I tried to make my own frappe thing based from ingredients in the store. I have caramel syrup in the coffee, then topped it off with whipped creamed and caramel drizzle. It didn’t taste too bad, but I found that the caramel syrup didn’t taste at all like the caramel in the drizzle, and the whipped cream did leave a bit of a miss. Overall not a bad concoction.

So I picked up this monstrosity when I went to Starbucks for a job interview earlier today. I don’t know what I was quite expecting taste-wise, but it certainly was very sweet and sugary, and tasted a lot like cotton candy. Definitely not like a mocha or cappuccino. I think I did get this because I missed out on that Unicorn shake the previous years.

 

Final verdict? Not bad. This is stuff for an easygoing road trip or hanging out with friends. Don’t get this if you’re in the mood to focus and want something stiff/regular.

When I decided to grab food before heading back home today, Sticky Rice immediately came to mind. So I stopped in for this lovely dish, dry rub wings.

 

I’ve had this dish a few times before, the first being at the Knox Asia Festival in 2017. The Sticky Rice peeps had set up a booth with a few different types of chicken, and this was rubbed with some spices and some quite hot pepper. It was very oily, perfectly fried and trumped any KFC that may have come my way.

 

Do stop into them and try this dish, it’s worth the $8. Maybe one day I’ll have a whole-blown meal from them when time allows.

Not only is this an Eateries, I actually helped make this! Snazzy, custom flavored Red Baron pizza, the triple cheese brick oven variant. Fresh bell peppers, mushrooms and onions top this delectable dish, along with a tiny bit of shavings of habanero hot peppers for extra spice. Baked this to perfection on a pizza stone.

 

Why am I baking a pizza in the middle of the night? Family just came off the road from being out all day, and decided that pizza would be the best option instead of going hungry or cooking something complicated.

 

Too bad I missed the other stuff I cooked July 4th. Oops.
