Fun Food Friday: Key West Conch Fritters

Conch fritters are a can't miss treat when visiting Key West.  B and I loved these ones from the conch fritters stand just outside the Aquarium.  The key lime mustard dipping sauce was phenomenal!

Fun Food Friday: Giant Apple Pie

If the movie Jerry McGuire had been about dessert rather than sports, perhaps RenĂ©e Zellweger's memorable line would have been "You had me at pie".  That is exactly what came into my mind when we were offered a slice on a recent Royal Caribbean cruise.  Apple pie can be hard to get just right but it was delicious!

New Construction Theme Park: Diggerland USA

If your kids are crazy about construction vehicles, they will probably LOVE Diggerland USA which opened last month in West Berlin, New Jersey.  With Giant Diggers, Dumper Trucks, Backhoe Adventure and 20 other attractions, kids will get to fulfill all of their construction dreams!  West Berlin, New Jersey is an 8-hr drive from Toronto or a quick 30-minute drive from Philadelphia's International Airport.  No hard hats or safety boots required!

Have you been yet?  What did you think?

Fun Food Friday: Sky-High Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie is a can't miss treat when visiting Key West, Florida and one of our favorites is at Blue Heaven.  There's usually a long wait for tables and they don't take reservations but the food is worth it!

Fun Food Friday: Banana Soup

B and I love reading Richard Scarry books so we just HAD to try banana soup when it appeared on the menu on one of our Royal Caribbean cruises.  We weren't sure what to expect, but it was more like a banana milkshake - and was delicious!  Bananas Gorilla would thoroughly approve!
