Hello. This is mmm-yoso!!!, the food blog. We write about food: eating food, cooking food and adventures related to food. Cathy is posting today: Kirk and ed(from Yuma) are busy doing something related to food.
Last month, I posted about a road trip The Mister and I made to watch Rose Parade floats having a road test. This past Saturday, we woke early (4 a.m.) and drove North, (leaving around 5 a.m.) and around 7 a.m., parked a block from Raymond Street,
The HGTV float, which has also been welded in the last month, has many types of houses on it- I see a bird house and igloo shape and the back house in this photo is lowered, as part of the testing to see that it will fit under the street and signal lights along the Rose Parade route.
The Trader Joe's float, which was only a rebar outline in the July road testing, is complete and so detailed with many moving parts. This is the view of it you won't see- the side which will be away from the television cameras.
From this camera side view, you can see the giant orange thing is an espresso machine, a few more details and also that a 'gravy boat' is following the larger boat of a float...and the back of the main float has a hand mixer (with spinning blades) and cracked eggs, and appears to have been blending up a fluffy meringue at the back of the boat.
Here's a little more detail at the center: a hand held can opener is in front of the espresso machine and under the open cookbook. This float is most certain to win a prize; it is unique and so well done.
Once again, creature of habit, I ordered the egg sandwich ($3.25) but neglected to ask for it on rye bread, and it was on white toast..not bad and still filling, it's just that I really like rye toast. I swear it is three scrambled eggs.
The Mister tried the bacon burrito this time, and I wanted you to see the grill marks on the tortilla, as well as the amount of filling which really does make it weigh around a pound- cheese, hash browns, eggs and ...bacon!
We did walk over to the Trader Joe's and purchased some Goddess salad dressing, which I had read about (it is good; has tahini, soy and garlic). Then we were headed home, and decided to drive on the 210 toward Interstate 15 for our trip South...
knowing that if we took the 210 to the 57 to the 71 and went West on 91 (instead of East, which goes to the 15) and three or four exits, we would be at the Anaheim Hills location of Wholesome Choice, a fascinating Market which I posted about more than two years ago.
The store has good prices and selection of fruits and vegetables
We were home by 12:30 and had a great Saturday adventure. I hope all of you did, too.
