    I still haven’t tried popchips but everyone has been raving about them so I think I’ll have to give them a shot!
    And this week went by so insanely fast! But then again I only had a three day week πŸ™‚

    I wasn’t going to comment, but I have to agree with you on the fact that most peppermint hot chocolates are not minty enough. But my friends and I came up with the perfect way to combat that: Candy Canes. The idea was inspired by a surplus of holiday candy canes in my house last year (I mean, 100 were left over. my fam loves xmas). We started to stir our hot cocoa with them and they were the perfect addition to any mint-lacking drink. Even if you don’t have any leftovers, they’re totally on sale at Publix right now.

    That makes me curious now about places I hear on my radio. I might have to check them out to see if they’re restaurants. Have a good weekend!

    Nothing like ending your night with a cup of hot chocolate!

    I’ve seen Popchips all over the place – still haven’t tried them. They sound awesome!

    My weekend will be quiet as well – I’m so excited about it!

    Did you still have to “dress to impress” to eat there? πŸ™‚ Maybe that place should get on that Guy Fieri show where he goes to unlikely places to get good food!
