Popcorn!!

So I really am not a huge popcorn person but I have to say that this stuff is amazing!! The Classic Mix is cheese and caramel. I personally eat them separately but they are good together.  I have to admit this is another one of my guilty pleasures because it is rather on the expensive side, were talking like $5 or $6 a bag, but it is so worth it!!

One of my guilty pleasures!!

I have a guilty pleasure that is readily available! Thank you Starbucks for the always delicious birthday cake pop.  This probably is one of my favorite treats. How can anyone possibly think that there is anything wrong with a ball of yellow cake on the end of a stick covered in yummy pink chocolate? Even if you are not a coffee drinker I highly recommend heading over to your local Starbucks and grabbing a few. Image

Great Food, Good Prices at Claim Jumpers

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:52 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

One of my recent adventures was Claim Jumpers Restaurant.  I absolutely love the atmosphere in this restaurant.  They have a log cabin more rustic feel with some of the best tasting food that I have had in a long time. 

On this trip I had the Tilapia Bianca. A very large portion of food which for a foodie like me is a fantastic thing.  First off it is pan seared tilapia with artichoke hearts and sauteed’ shrimp in a sherry cream sauce.  The tilapia was cooked absolutely perfectly and the shrimp were big and delicious.  It also comes with rice and green beans. Man do I love some green beans.  The only thing that I have not liked at this point is that sometimes the service can be very very slow and if your not in a hurry than it is a good thing.  Also we ordered Skinny Ritas. Which is there version of a lite margarita. I would have to say that has been one of my least favorite margaritas that I have had.

So in recap amazing food, okay drinks on this trip, somewhat slow service, but great prices.

One of my latest adventures

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , , , , at 4:27 pm by Foodie With An Agenda

The latest adventure was to Sirio Ristorante at the beautiful Aria Hotel in Las Vegas. First off when you walk in the room is beautiful except for the fact that you can see out into the hotel and people are always walking by and it can get rather loud. Once you are seated the specials menu is already on the table but shortly after you are seated a waiter will walk over and hand you a large book of different wines as well as their regular menu.

We had to do the tasting menu which was more food than we had ever expected. You first get a basket of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar which the bread is fresh and warm. Then with the tasting menu you are brought your first course which seems more like an entree’ then once you have finished that they refresh your table with what ever silverware you need for your pasta course. Again the amount of food is like another entree then they bring out your main course which was all amazing!

The food is spectacular except for the after meal cello.  You are not given the cello with your meal but it is one of their specialties. All the cello is produced in-house and sadly was a huge disappointment. I have had lemon cello previously and it was fantastic. This cello was simply too sweet. They offer you a tasting of cello in either 3,4, or 5 flavors. We tried the three which was lemon, mixed berry, and truffle. All they tasted like was sugar. After eating the amount of food given from the tasting menu we were simply unable to down that much sugar.

So to recap highly highly highly recommend the food but I do not recommend sampling the cello unless you have a major sweet tooth.

Pictures will be posted soon.
