Taste Panel – Strawberry Kiwi Juice

May 10, 2010

At UF, there’s this thing called a taste panel. It’s run by the College of Food Science and Human Nutrition aka my major (for now). I was introduced to this last year when I took a class called called Man’s Food, and one of the requirements was to go to the taste panel. If you go, you get free things (like a coupon for the restaurants on campus or something). You can stop by anytime you see the sign “Taste Panel Today!” The first time I went I had guava juice, second time was fried fish, and this time was strawberry kiwi juice. I had two samples—I said the first one had a weird aftertaste, and the other was sweeter with more strawberry flavor. I had an opportunity to work here, but I was hesitant about turning in the app because I have another job.. but yeah, that was my morning. I plan on going more often. :)

By the way, the cracker and water is used to clean out your mouth between each sample!


Cookies ‘n Cream Milkshake – Chick-Fil-A

May 7, 2010

I was craving this baby all week long! I kept denying myself a milkshake because I was able to convince myself I didn’t need it.. and in the end I was just putting it off for later (accident!). Then someone wise told me, “You’ve had a long week. Just do it.” So I did it and brought it into work with me. I like Chick Fil A milkshakes simply because I like their soft serve. I got cookies and cream because I was really craving Oreos too! My favorite milkshake from Chick Fil A has to be the peach one though. So, where’s my favorite place to get a milkshake? Baskin Robbins! Why? ‘Cause when I was little, my mom would take me there whenever she was craving her beloved butter pecan milkshakes, and I’d just get some kiddie cone and drink half her drank =]. I like my milkshakes/smoothies/daquiris thick. Like..

Chick Fil A’s isn’t like that because it’s soft serve, but yeah. :)

Sippin’ On Some Riesling

May 6, 2010

I have the apartment to myself for the rest of the week/weekend. It’s time to crack out the wine and run around naked! YAY! I like the way this glass of (Yellow Tail) Riesling reflects my food pictures hanging on the kitchen wall. =)
