Well this is the last week of classes and all I have on my mind is the summer. I love summer. The hot days, bright sun and enjoying not having to study for tests. But for most university students, summer means work. Get a job to make enough money to last for the upcoming year. So that’s my plan for the summer, to work. But I think everyone needs to spend the summer doing things that they like to do. So for today’s item: You are to have one amazing summer where you’re not stressed out and you do all the things you enjoy.

If you can’t think of things to do during the summer, I say remember back to when you were a kid and what did you like to do in the summertime? Here’s a list of things that I want to do this summer.

How’s it Made?

March 11, 2008 at 12:14 pm (Activity) (, , , , , , , )

Have you ever wondered how something is made?  Some of the ways that you can find out how something is made is by either researching it using the Internet, watching shows such as How it’s Made on the Discovery Channel or else go to the place where it’s actually made and see for yourself the process.  One thing that I would absolutely love to know is how my favorite foods are made.  I would love to see how they get the caramel into the Caramilk bar or the process that it takes to make ice cream.  So for today’s item, you are to go to a factory and watch how your favorite food is made.

Now depending on what you enjoy would determine the type of place you go to.  There’s so many factories out there, you just have to find the one that you like and also that allows visitors to come in and watch.  Some of the factories that I want to visit are the Hershey factory in Hershey, Pennsylvania, Ben and Jerry’s, and the Bernard Callebaut.

One of the best things about factory tours is that usually they have samples at the end of the tour!

Heaven in a Cup

January 30, 2008 at 7:20 pm (Food) (, , , , )

The best thing that I have tasted that has comes in a cup is gelato!  Now some people think that it tastes the same as ice cream but let me tell you, it doesn’t.  Gelato is more smooth and more flavorful.  Absolutely heavenly.

The best place to get gelato is located in Vancouver, Canada.  The place is called La Casa Gelato which serves 508 flavors of gelato.   So even if you’re picky, you’ll find something that you like.
