I don’t know why I take long to write these posts!

I’ve always wanted to go to TGI Fridays on a Friday, so it’ll be more authentic and God made it happen this year… on a Friday as you can tell from the entry date. It was a blessed experience in the company of loved ones. The atmosphere was great, the menu terrific and if something wasn’t to our fancy on the menu, our host Joshua assured us that it’ll be made.
Joshua was part of our wonderful experience! He was warm, friendly, and everything a host should be in the hospitality industry. Although the food was super delicious, Joshua is the main reason we’ll be returning to the establishment.
Here are some of the delicious food we enjoyed:
My sister Denisia kicked things off with this refreshing triple berry (strawberry, raspberry, & blackberry) smoothie.
Leiya & Denisia had the signature burger.
My other sister Denise had this yummy pasta!
Tams & I had this deliciously loaded buffalo chicken fries topped with green onions and shaved celery. The bleu cheese was a yummy touch!
Denisia had the pineapple rum cheesecake for dessert.
From another angle.
Tams had a brownie covered in chocolate fudge sauce, caramel sauce, vanilla ice cream (yum!) and chopped nuts.
***All of these photos were taken by Leiya, our beautiful sister in Christ. She was adamant that she took as many photos as she could. I asked her permission to upload these photos and to also put the logo on them. There was also birthday ice cream, but that photo didn’t make the final cut.
I’ve been talking about food non-stop since the beginning of this year! I don’t have any comfort foods for if I feel like I need a pick-me-up, coffee is always the answer.
I can make food disappear!
I can speed read, but you guys know this already, so it’s not really hidden.

Well, we’ve come to the end of this gastronomic journey. While the book was interesting, I think some of the foods were not significant. I enjoyed learning about the foods I did not know of and although I know the aim of the book was to focus on foods with a rich historical background concerning wars and myths that messed with the origin of food, I think quite a few important foods were missed. Foods such as croissants, coffee, wine, Philly steak, apples, cheese, and popcorn. History-wise or not, I think they played a HUGE part of food culture. The final rating for this book is…
I’ll be reviewing 4 memoirs as I dislike them and I want to get them out of the way. One is by Nick Carter, another by Zlatan, an autobio on Messi and a memoir by Derrick Coleman Jr.
Origin: America and other parts of the world
Date: 1990s onwards
Type: Dry milk
I guess everyone is familiar with powdered milk. Back in 1295, the Mongolians boiled milk, when the fat rose to the top they’ll skim it off to make butter. The defatted milk was then left to dry in the sun as reported by Marco Polo.
Today, powdered milk is spray dried.
Would I eat/drink it?: When I was younger, I used to it eat it with sugar as a treat and drink it in tea, but I haven’t consumed it in years.

Type: Coffee shop coffee
What can I say? America runs on coffee. 😉
Would I eat/drink it?: I haven’t been to Starbucks in a long time, but I love their strawberries and crème frappuccino.
