Happy Sunday! This week we're in the great state of Washington! What is Washington known for? Cherries of course! Today I'll be making two different kinds of cherry pizzas!

We're in Seattle, home to lots of big corporations like Microsoft, Costco, and most importantly Starbucks! Just down the street at Pike Place Market is the very first Starbucks, but that's not our goal today. Today we're after an entirely different Starbucks experience than we've ever had before.
My sister-in-law Megan is a big coffee lover and came to the Starbucks Reserve Roastery a week before us and said we had to come see it. They offer things that you won't find in your everyday Starbucks and it's a really unique experience.

We're in Washington and visiting downtown Seattle! Of course we have to stop by the Seattle staple the Space Needle! We visited Pike Place market earlier in the day. It's only a 1 mile walk over to the Space Needle from there. Let's go!

I posted a few pictures from this before, but here's the full write-up.
It's my birthday (7/29) and we're in Washington!
Megan - We should go on a whale watching tour!
She got to work researching the different companies that offered tours and picked the best!

It's no big secret that I'm falling behind in getting these written up. Here it is almost the end of October and I'm just getting around to writing up the end of July. So, in a push to catch up, I'll be rushing through things a little bit. A little less writing, more pictures. And sometimes 2-3 posts a day if I can keep up. Let's jump right into it.
Seaside Oregon was beautiful but it's time to leave and head further north.

Another mystery soda? I mean, I guess we should try it since we try so many others. My brother and his whole family were visiting us, so why not try it all together!

It's Halloween Time and it's time once again for Mountain Dew to release another version of VooDew!
In 2019, their first year, they release VooDew which tasted like Candy Corn.
Then in 2020, VooDew2 was a Fruit Candy Explosion, which was flavored like Skittles.
For 2021, VooDew3 was flavored like Fruit Candy Chews, so basically Starbursts.
This year is VooDew4! I wonder what it's going to taste like.

Welcome to Seaside Oregon! While walking along the Strand by the beach, we noticed that just off the path was a very very small National Park Historic Monument. It's the Lewis and Clark Salt Works!

It's been a fun time visiting family near Battle Ground Washington, but it's time to move along. This week we're in Seaside Oregon!
Monday, October 10, 2022
Let's wrap up our visit to Battle Ground Washington, hanging out with my brother, his family, and all the rest of the Flowers family.
Coffee is a favorite of many of the Flowers family. There's lots of cute coffee shops near their house.

It's time for another Saturday morning cereal taste test! And this time Cinnamon Toast Crunch has a something new! So far we have tried every version of Cinnamon Toast Crunch that I've been able to get my hands on.
The original Cinnamon Toast Crunch and a loaf of homemade bread for homemade cinnamon toast. French Toast Crunch with homemade bread for homemade french toast. Chocolate Toast Crunch and a loaf of homemade Chocolate Bread. Cinnamon Toast Crunch Churros and making homemade churros! And of course when Cinnamon Toast Crunch Chocolate Churros came out, I had to make those too. For Sugar Cookie Toast Crunch, the kids and I made sugar cookies. Apple Pie Toast Crunch and my sister-in-law Megan's homemade apple pie. And Cinna-Graham Toast Crunch where I made homemade Graham Crackers for the first time!
Now there's a new one where the Cinnamon Toast Crunch bakers have taken the next logical leap and made Cinnamon Toast Crunch Rolls. Like Cinnamon Rolls! I don't think this is going to be a close comparison at all, but let's give this a try!

It's time for a taste test! We've tried so many different Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereals where they've tried to be something else. Like Churros, Apple Pie, and Sugar Cookies. Today though we've got other tasty items that are trying to be like Cinnamon Toast Crunch!

Time for another taste test! Whenever I see something that has a bunch of different flavors, I'm always tempted to try them all! Recently we visited the Tillamook Creamery in Tillamook Oregon where they make all these delicious treats!

Time for another taste test! I always keep my eye out for new things to try, but my brother Patrick likes to find interesting things too! Earlier this year he found Freetles, freeze dried Skittles, that we thought were even better than the original Skittles! And we know our Skittles! We have tried 56 different flavors of Skittles during our massive Skittles taste test!

We're visiting Washington State and we're lucky enough to have my entire family here too!
I'm always soliciting ideas for what my weekly pizza should be. I was riding in a car with my dad, brother, and sister-in-law Megan when inspiration struck her. She almost sucked all the air out of the car as she had her realization.
Megan - GASP! You have to make a coffee pizza!
Brilliant! Seattle Washington is regarded as the "World Center for Coffee Roasting". Starbucks originated from here! Megan is a coffee fanatic.

Saturday Morning Cereals - Banana Cheerios - Caramel Banana Cheerios and Strawberry Banana Cheerios Taste Test
Happy Saturday! Today we're trying a couple brand new Cheerios flavors! Last Christmas I tried 20 different Cheerios flavors with my family! It was the Ultimate Cheerios Taste Test!
Sheila - We had a lot of Cheerios left over at the house after that...
Since then, I have groaned whenever I saw a new version of Cheerios released, because it meant that was one that I didn't get to try in our big taste test. No matter, we'll just save the new flavors until we're back together again to try them.
Who here likes banana flavored things? Just Jon and Megan apparently. I'm definitely in the opposite camp. Banana flavored foods and candies are among my least favorite. Will these Cheerios be good or bad? Let's taste them and see!
