Cafe Rio Mexican Grill “Tasty Tuesday”

8/30/16. My new favorite day of the week is Tuesday thanks to Cafe Rio Mexican Grill. They offer a “Tasty Tuesday” deal for $5.49, where you get your choice of a burrito, salad, quesadilla, or taco meal. The restaurant is set up like the fast-casual restaurant, Chipotle, where you choose your fillings, pay for your food, and bus your own table. And the portions are pretty big. To save…

Ting Tong Thai Cafe (Kent, WA)

7/21/16. I really shouldn’t be writing this review on an empty stomach. When I crave Thai food, I always head to Ting Tong Thai Cafe in Kent, WA. I’m a huge fan of their lunch combinations, which are served Monday through Friday from 10:30 am – 3:00 pm. At $8.25, it’s a great deal for a delicious, hot meal. I usually order the Golden Cashew Chicken, Pad Thai, and…

Happy Pho Time (Covington, WA)

9/19/14. What do you do when your kids are at a sleepover and your husband is out with his buddies? Well, I used that opportunity to spend some time with my mom and go out to dinner. We decided to try Happy Pho Time in Covington, WA. I had been there a year ago but haven’t been back until I heard they were under new ownership last month.…

Proper British Bacon

8/29/14. I had purchased a voucher for Proper British Bacon in Auburn, WA, through one of those deal sites like Amazon local and I am so glad that I did. [amazon] [/amazon] We bought grass-fed ground beef, smoked British bacon, bratwurst, chorizo, sage breakfast sausage, Korean-style ribs and a pig ear (for Stewart, the dog). I would have to say that my favorite was the chorizo and we…

Changes at the Covington Costco

If you stopped by the Covington, WA Costco recently, you may have noticed a big change. Last week they eliminated the 4 self check-out lanes, which I believe was their best feature. *sigh* In the almost 4 years that this location has been opened, I almost always used those self check-out lanes. It was fast and convenient, especially when I just needed to pick up some milk or…

Costco New Product: Bamboo Lane Korean Style Chicken Street Tacos $10.99

Bamboo Lane Korean Style Chicken Street Tacos

For some of you, this product hit your Costco shelves years ago but this is fairly new here. This is not a particularly budget-friendly item but I’m half-Korean so I like trying new Asian food products and comparing it to my mother’s cooking. The kit includes ingredients to make 12 tacos and the prep is simple (heat in the microwave) and quick (a matter of minutes). You get…

Cars 2 Movie Review

The kids and I went to see the movie Cars 2 over the weekend (when AMC offers their discount prices for early birds) and we had a good time. The movie begins back at Radiator Springs with Mater and McQueen meeting up and sharing some wild adventures. McQueen gets involved in the World Grand Prix and decides to take Mater along. The first leg of the race is…
