Most fabulous barn yard party ever!

Okay, I should be honest here...I really could care less about the Ascot Races (Sorry Brits and race horse enthusiasts, etc..). But what I do care about, with uncontrollable passion, is ice cream! Today I stumbled upon the most glorious of events, the Ascot Races aka ponies-and-ladies-in-crazy-hats-day. And someone, no, a brilliant wizard of supreme imagination, invented an edible chocolate hat! Seriously, this has got to be a huge leap for humanity.




Milliner Judy Bentinck made a 4 foot hat shaped like an ice cream cone (mesh+satin) in just 6 weeks. And the added brilliance is that it includes with real chocolate for snacking! Hats off to you Judy Bentnick! (sorry, I couldn't resist that one!) Wow. Suddenly horse races sound more intriguing than they were just moments ago. Anyone wanna take me on a date to next years Ascot Races??

Other favorites include the blue cheese and grapes hat, the toilet seat/bathtub hat and the granny chic pony/button/fake flowers hat!

Garden friends!

Its ridiculously hot today and of course the ac decided to not work so I'm spending most of the afternoon in the sun and the pool! I suppose I can't complain, especially when this little guy flies by to visit! Pup is also enjoying her day in the sun! Yay for summer!

BOMA = African Food Addiction

My friend shellie turned me on to this place and despite the fact that its run by disney, I'm totally helpless to the magical food there...and did I mention its a buffet?

Watermelon rind ginger salad! Curry pasta salad! Three types of hummus! Pap chakalaka! Ohh yeah and that's only plate one of this African inspired buffet goodness.

I learned two important things on my most recent visit #1: pap chakalaka is not a fake African name its real, its yummy and its fun to say. #2: Apparently this place is not as americanized (duh, its at disney) as I thought because my dinner date was freaking out for some of the dishes. I consider him to be a credible source since he grew up all around the said continent. Seriously, I need to learn how to make the watermelon rind salad since I'm completely addicted now. Disclaimer: I highly recommend having a place to nap immediately post gorge, because a seriously intense food coma is guaranteed.

Yum here is my dessert plate! Yay for everything I tried except the secret coffee one (bleh). zebra cakes are so good i needed two.
