The Policeman Special

• Instagram.  How badly I’ve been wanting to Instagram.  But have an iPhone I don’t.  Luckily, there is RetroCam for Droids that makes the same quirky photos and you can even choose different cameras.  I’ve embraced my lack of Instagram.

• I have to admit have a fun little camera app on the phone makes taking pictures with it way more fun.  Whereas before it wasn’t.

• That cone is from the Comfy Cow, a local ice cream parlor that is way too close to my house (YES!) and has the best creamy ice cream (YES! YES!).

• That ice cream is called The Policeman’s Special.  Coffee ice cream sprinkled with chunks of Nord’s donuts.  It debuted on March 15th.  I had a cone on March 16th.  And all was right with the world.

• I wish I had a cone of ice cream this very minute.  It would definitely make me happier considering I’m going to have a crappy week ahead of me.  But this plain old cup of coffee will just have to do the trick for now.

• My fab co-workers and I have been taking in the new local eats all around the new office.  Sitting further east on Main Street, we have easier access to all the lovely Market Street eateries in NuLu.  I tried Ghyslain last week and OMG!  Ham and Gruyère panini with berries – my mouth is watering just thinking about. And yesterday we hit up Taco Punk.  I’d heard mix reviews but the taste that came from that meat was insane.  Will be going back again for the salsa verde alone.

• Yes.  I know.  I love to eat.  And I love to talk about eating.  What can I say, I’m a girl who knows what’s important to her.  Food.

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Brooke, RetroCam is nice but you need to hit the market and download (for FREE) Pixlr-o-matic. For reals. RetroCam makes you pick the camera before you take the photo. Pixlr let you take the photo and then work with textures and frames.
