Ritz Crisps!

What’s up fellow foodies! I have a pretty good snack that I think you may like. I picked up a bag of Ritz Crisp & Thins in Sweet Chili & Sour Cream flavor and it was soooooooo good! The fact that they are oven baked makes them even better. These are way too good to be true.

Unlike most bags of chips where the bag is full of mostly air, these are loaded with plenty of Ritz Crisps! You can definitely taste the sweet chili and sour cream which is what I was truly hoping for when I bought them. I’m so glad Nabisco was generous when it came to filling their bags of Ritz Crisps! If you aren’t careful, you can eat the whole bag in one sitting.

For them to be so light and crispy, they were packed with a generous amount of flavor. The only thing I didn’t really care for is that some of them were a little too baked, but other than that, they were pretty good. I seriously had to stop myself after eating almost half of the bag.

Panda Express

What’s up fellow foodies! This week has been a bust and a little rough for this foodie. Every new restaurant I’ve tried this week has either been average or horrible. On top of that, I got food poisoning from Taco Bell. Peep my post from yesterday. It hasn’t even been two weeks since I started this blog and my foodie experiences have sucked for the most part. That leads me to Panda Express.

Today, I decided to try Panda Express after hearing so many people talk about it. I decided to order the Panda Bowl with Beijing Beef and Chow Mein. I’ve been hearing how good the Beijing Beef is and I wanted to try it. As soon as I opened it to snap a picture, I wasn’t too thrilled with what I saw. They could’ve kept that. See what I got for yourself:

The beef was overcooked because it was a little tough, the sauce had way too much vinegar and tomato paste and the chow mein was chewy! Good Gawd Almighty! I didn’t like it one bit and I’m not ashamed to say I threw the whole bowl away. Never again and I do mean never. Whoever the cooks were today, they did me dirty. I could’ve kept my $7.00.

No Bueno Taco Bell

What’s up fellow foodies! Today was not a very good day for this foodie. I went to Taco Bell earlier today to grab a bite to eat and I’m paying for it in the worst way. In a way, I brought it on myself.

I ordered the #11 combo, Doritos Locos Taco Supreme in Cool Ranch with a Baja Blast. I’ve ordered this in the past so I didn’t think it was a big deal. When I was finally able to dive into my tacos, I noticed they didn’t smell right; they didn’t taste right either. Still, like a fool, I ate them any way because I was hungry. That was dumb. Why did I do that????

20181024_195144

About two hours later, I started feeling nauseous so I chewed two Nauzene tablets. Soon after that, my stomach started cramping and bubbling. Can you guess what I’m dealing with now? Explosive diarrhea! I’ve been rocking my toilet hard!!!! I know, I know too much information, but I’m trying to save y’all from making the same foolish mistake I did. I’m a prime example of when being greedy goes terribly wrong. I knew better!

I’ve learned my lesson, trust me. Never again. No matter how hungry I am, if the food don’t taste right, I’m not going to eat it. You don’t want to be paying for it later like I am. Y’all pray for me. It’s bad!!! Ooooh weeeee it’s bad. SMH. Taco Bell, you did me dirty today.

Milo’s

What’s up fellow foodies! I went to Milo’s for lunch on my lunch break and decided to blog briefly about my experience. I ordered the cheese burger combo with extra onions (I love onions) and light on the sauce.

The fries were actually pretty good, but the burger was okay. I was honestly expecting more flavor, sadly I didn’t get that. Maybe that’s what they depend on the sauce for. It’s a good thing I ordered extra onions or else my cheese burger would’ve been really bland.

20181023_213812.jpg

Overall, the meal was average. It wasn’t too terrible, but it wasn’t all that good either. The fries were the best part of my meal.

Sea-Pak Beer Battered Crab Poppers Review

What’s up fellow foodies! You know I’m coming at you with another review. I noticed that Sea-Pak had a new item in my area, Beer Battered Crab Poppers in the frozen seafood section. You know I had to give them a try.

20181022_173558.jpg

I was actually pretty excited about these and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Now that I’ve tried them, I could have waited. One, they were pretty greasy after you baked them and two, I kept getting bits and pieces of crab shell in every other bite. That was beyond frustrating and I couldn’t really enjoy them. I wouldn’t recommend a child or teenager snacking on these. They might get choked on the crab shell bits.

20181022_173626.jpg

I will say you could taste a hint of beer in the batter and that the meat used was definitely crab meat and not the imitation crab. I did appreciate the slight kick of jalapeños in the crab poppers. The citrus tartar sauce sucked. At almost $6.00 a box, I won’t be buying these again. I could’ve saved my money.

A Dinner Meal Under $20

What’s up fellow foodies! I accepted a challenge to make a healthy meal for under $20 and you know what? I did just that. The grand total came to $18.67. I got $1.33 back in cha change! 💵 Boo-yah! Seeing how I’m a lover of seafood, I wanted to try something different. I went the Caribbean route with my meal. Check it out.

20181022_091023.jpg

What you are looking at is Caribbean style shrimp with Caribbean style rice (by Zatarains) and fresh garlic butter asparagus with lemon. It was soooooooo delicious. I shocked my own self by how good it turned out. I can definitely see myself making this again in the future. What about you? Have any of you made an amazing meal lately that was under $20? If so, what was it?

Pappadeaux

What’s up fellow foodies! I’m coming at you tonight with another foodie review. After hearing so many people brag about how good Pappadeaux is, I decided to give them a try. I ordered the seafood platter which includes: a stuffed crab, fried shrimp, two pieces of fried tilapia, a blue crab cake and one stuffed shrimp. All of it was piled on a plate of dirty rice which was my choice. I opted for dirty rice instead of a plate of fries because I figured that would be better. I snapped a quick pic before I dived into it.

Lord have mercy. This dish has to be one of my biggest letdowns this year in terms of “fine” dining. There was nothing fine about what I ordered. The blue crab cake had little to no crab meat in it, the stuffed crab was stuffed with nothing but batter-no meat whatsoever, the fried shrimp and tilapia was bland and my stuffed shrimp was a total embarrassment. There was nothing stuffed about it. Don’t get me started on the dirty rice because the dirty rice tasted atrocious. I was sitting there trying to figure out for the longest what all the bragging was about. What I got didn’t look or taste like what was on their menu.

Considering the the money I spent, my wait time to get it and how disappointing my dish was, I feel my rating below is absolutely appropriate for Pappadeaux.

Do better Pappadeaux.
