CoolDown 101

I hope everyone had a great 4th weekend... I know I did! The peaches came out great - juicy and not too sweet with that creamy feta adding something great! The sangria was delicious, although it was definitely upstaged by some real Jamaican Rum Punch (I gotta get that recipe). Here's a pic of how they turned out:

This week is gonna be a scorcher here in the DMV so I'm sure alot of you won't be leaving your house unless it is ABSOLUTELY necessary. One great way to get out and cool off- Go get Frozen Yogurt! There are tons of places in the city and the surrounding area. Here are my favorites!

Yogen Fruz - what I love about this place is you can get your yogurt one of two ways: the usual soft serve with a selection of toppings OR with the fruit blended in. Delish! Located at 14th and I St and in Pentagon City's food court with more locations to coming soon.

Mr. Yogato - on 17th street between P and Church Streets. Amazingly tangy yogurt, fresh toppings (ask for the banana and granola) AND fun trivia questions can earn you 10% off! *helpful hit - get your dry toppings like nuts and granola on the bottom so they don't fall off!

FroZenYo - this self-serve yogurt shop, with locations downtown by H&M, in Columbia Heights, and Friendship Heights, is great because it has 16 rotating flavors, no restrictions on the number of toppings, and everyone gets to live out their childhood fantasy of creating that perfect DairyQueen swirl themselves - which is way harder than you'd think! Just don't fill up your cup - you'll regret it when you hit the register - and when you can't resist eating it all.

Yogiberry - self serve, 8 flavors, many interesting toppings and with locations in Gaithersburg Square and Olney Town Center its perfect for my MoCo people! There's also a location in College Park! Can you guess where I'll be getting dessert when I'm home?

Stay cool and Eat well!
