“You look like the Fourth of July, makes me want a hot dog real bad”

5 Jul

We kicked off Fourth of July weekend by annihilating a bag of Cheetos Puffs while sitting in traffic on our way to the Jersey Shore. It didn’t dawn on us until we arrived two hours later that we would be sporting patriotic bikinis all weekend long, so we drafted a 0 calorie lunch plan. Kidding—no we’re not—here’s what we came up with:

  • pickles/cucumbers
  • PAM cooking spray
  • lettuce
  • Diet Coke
  • celery

For the record, we are not a pro-anorexia blog nor did we ever consider eating this. We had hot dogs for lunch.

We also went to Surf Taco, a classic Jersey Shore dining establishment. We recommend the Maverick’s Burrito, a flour tortilla filled with char grilled chicken and the 5 basic burrito ingredients. Worth it to add guacamole for an extra $1.75. If you can’t name the 5 basic burrito ingredients, then you have no business reading this blog. TTYN.

Delicious lunch or small child...?

Unlimited fountain soda and a salsa bar give Surf Taco an A+ in quality, but the newbie busboy who spilled salsa on us gives it a D- (isn’t that just an F?) in customer service. Also, they were giving away free stickers—unlike the Millburn Deli, we stole those.

Beef, It’s What’s for Dinner

28 Jun

Being the multi-faceted bloggers that we are, we decided to try our hand at baking this week. After eating burgers at the Sherwood Diner (this never happened, but we did consider ordering them), we were inspired to bake a Big Mac cake. We researched different recipes and finally settled on one from Women’s Day magazine. If busy moms have time to make a hamburger cake, then why wouldn’t we?

Elaheh did make a three-tiered wedding cake once, so for the record, we are not novice bakers. But somehow our hamburger cake did not resemble the picture in Women’s Day. Safe to say that we are not going to tweet this post at the Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten. (in a garden?)

First of all, we’d like to issue a complaint to the mag for publishing unclear directions. We thought that two boxes of cake mix yielded two 9-inch rounds, but when assembling the burger we noticed that we were missing the top bun. Seriously, what’s a bowl cake?

We also took some creative liberties by opting for a yellow cake mix when the recipe called for a pound cake mix. Another factor that contributed to the disaster that came out of the oven could’ve been Justin Bieber softly crooning in the kitchen. *

*Justin Bieber wasn’t actually with us (or was he?). His songs were just on repeat.

Thanks Women's Day!

Wah-Wah

In conclusion, a waste of time and resources.

Things that keep us up at night:

  1. Tara Lipinski’s guest roles on 7th Heaven
  2. Either you’re a doctor or you’re not.
  3. When Alyssa is 50, her resume will still say that she majored in Science in Society.
  4. What do Pippa Middleton and Michael Jackson have in common? We’re not really sure either.
  5. How many times do you have to tweet at Tahj Mowry to get him to retweet?
