National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day - April 2nd

It's been a while since we've celebrated any national days. Today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! Sounds like a good one to celebrate!

Fruit Punch Peeps

We're just about halfway through all these Peeps flavors. Tonight we're going to try Fruit Punch Peeps.

Now I don't know what comes to your mind when you hear fruit punch, but for me I immediately think Kool-Aid. And while you can make it from a packet, the coolest way to drink it was out of these plastic squeeze bottles.
Now my mind went to Kool-Aid but upon further inspect, they don't actually call it fruit punch flavored. Instead it's Tropical Punch. But let's compare the fruits on both packages. Limes, oranges, grapes, and cherries - check. Hmm, there's pineapple on the Peeps package but not on the Kool-Aid package. I'm still going to allow it.

Sour Watermelon Peeps

It's time to try the next Peeps on our list. Today we're tasting Sour Watermelon Peeps. Once the flavor was decided, Ian ran to his room to change into a more appropriately colored outfit. Long-sleeved red undershirt, with a green t-shirt on top. Looks great Ian!

So what kind of thing goes with Sour Watermelon? When I'm thinking Sour Watermelon, I usually think about the Sour Patch Kids Watermelon candies. They start Sour then turn Sweet.

Chalk Your Walk #chalkyourwalk 2020-03-29

We're "Safer At Home" here in Los Angeles, but that doesn't mean we can't still find fun things to do. There's lots of things people around the neighborhood are doing to stay in good spirits. Bears in the windows for people on a "Bear Hunt", leaving extra fruit out from a tree in the backyard for anyone to take, and smiling and waving as people pass by on their inevitable walks.

I heard about the #chalkyourwalk where people were writing encouraging messages for people to enjoy on their walks as well. At about this time, Ruston and I would usually be thinking out our Pasadena Chalk Festival entry and maybe even have a practice session. I think we can make something pretty cool. The kids have always wanted to help on a mural and they were excited that they'd get to help out today.

Root Beer Float Peeps

Time for the next Peeps taste test! This time we're tasting the Root Beer Float flavor.

And today we're going to be tasting them alongside root beer floats that we make at home! Guess which one is Alli's and which one is Ian's.

Saturday Morning Cereals - Chocolate Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows

Time for another tasty Saturday morning cereal. Back in December, we tasted 7 different kinds of Frosted Flakes. In my search for different flavors, I didn't see these Chocolate Frosted Flakes with Marshmallows anywhere. But on a random trip to the store, sure enough these were staring at me from the cereal aisle. I couldn't just leave them there.

We have to try all the things!
