Holy crap, it’s already August! To me, August isn’t a very exciting month. No major holidays, it’s in the awkward stage between Summertime and getting ready for Fall. Some of my favorite clothing stores are already advertising their Fall fashions! I’m not ready for all that, especially in Texas. We’ll all be rockin’ shorts, tanks and sunscreen for at least another month. To liven up this in-between month, I’ve made a list of some things you’ll definitely need to try out! Let’s start with a drink, shall we?
I went to a blink-182 show last weekend. It was hot as hell so I needed to find something yummy and refreshing! I was surprised to see some stands selling beer and wine. Wine didn’t really seem to fit the vibe but I still headed over to see what they had to offer. Sure enough, it was these bad boys. I had to pass up a nice, cold beer to try one out and I’m glad I did! The Summer Red Spritzer was the perfect amount of fruity and bubbly. I can definitely see these being enjoyed out by the pool, soaking up the last bits of Summer.
Pasta + cheese wheel + Hennessy = everything you could ever possibly wish for. Mercat Bistro is located in the Harwood District in Dallas and man, are they doing things right. A cozy, European bistro serving up a specialty pasta dish right at your table that is to die for. They bring out a cheese wheel, pour in some Hennessy, light it on fire and let the cheese melt. Then, they toss in the pasta that’s been cooked in a bechamel sauce. You’ve seriously got to try this. They only prepare it Monday-Wednesday!
If you’ve been blessed with a Kroger near you offering ClickList and haven’t tried it, you are missing out. I don’t know about you, but grocery shopping is my least favorite chore. It turns into a 3 hour long expedition lasting until midnight, loading and unloading all the food, along with the unnecessary items I got just ’cause they looked yummy (’cause by this time I’m starving), then somehow finding room for everything in the pantry and fridge. I’m tired just thinking about it! Now, I barely have to think about it. All you do is pick out your groceries online, choose a pick-up time (the following day), pull up to the ClickList area, and you’re done! They even bring out your groceries for you and load them into your car. Goodbye worst errand ever; hello five minute shopping trip!
Sit back, relax and enjoy these last few weeks of Summer with a yummy drink and delicious meal with the time you save online grocery shopping! Happy August!
