mmmmm….. beer ice cream Duff & D’oh-Nuts

You can imagine Homer Simpson falling asleep at night and dreaming of ice cream with two of his favorite flavors — beer and doughnuts.

Vermont’s famous ice-cream maker, Ben & Jerry’s, will bring that new concoction to Vermont’s newly famous town, Springfield, for the premiere of “The Simpsons” movie this weekend. The town won a recent contest among communities sharing a name with the fictitious home base of “The Simpsons,” and will host a daylong celebration and several premiere showings of the new film on Saturday.

Ben & Jerry’s Homer homage is called “Duff & D’oh-Nuts,” and according to a news release from the ice-cream maker is an “extremely limited, one-time and one-day-only flavor” that’s “a combination of chocolate and cream stout ice creams with glazed chocolate donuts.” Duff is the brand of beer featured in “The Simpsons” television series, and doughnuts are Homer’s culinary raison d’etre.

In another nod to Homer, Ben & Jerry’s will for one day rename its Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough flavor “Chocolate Chip Cookie D’oh!” in reference to Homer’s famous exclamation.

dont give me no jive, I loves the five alive

five alive

Went shopping at super saver today and had a hankering for some concentrated juice type product. The sugar free kool-aid was getting a little old. I wondered if they had five alive and they did. It must have been about 20 years ago that I have had it, and it is good.

Once widely available in the U.S., it is now very difficult to find. Five Alive is, however, still widely distributed in Canada and in the UK, as a bottled or canned drink, also in 250ml cartons suitable for vending machines or as a frozen concentrate.

Old Cheney Sunday farmers market

Have heard about this one and decided to check it out. It is in the parking lot of the strip mall that has capitol patio and Mulligans (56th and hwy 2). Couple nice things about this one. There are trees which provide shade, pretty good selection, you can park pretty close, and good stuff.

The first table I stopped at was Hollenbeck Farms. They had some burgers in a nice serving dish cut up into little chunks and covered with the cheese the lady accross from them was selling. It was really good. I picked up a rump roast from the nice couple. Did not realize till I looked at the website that it was the folks who actually raise the cattle. I am betting that is gonna be one good roast.
Got 6 big ol ears of corn from another stand. Lots of corn sellers out there.

ate my first beef twinkie (runza)

beef twinkie

Well to be truthful I have tried a bunza at my school lunch when I was a lad, but never an actual Runza runza. I went with the mushroom swiss version. It was meh… I really only made it through 1/2 of it cuz was not too hungry and not exactly my kind of grub. It just had a twang to it. BTW: it looked nothing like the picture.

So been a pretty good year for me. Ate my first big mac (two actually, they not too bad), and now a runza. Figure I will try and branch out a bit and get more adventurous. Working at Crane River was pretty much the first time I tried different stuff, it made me much more willing to try different things. Heck I will eat a McRib if they come out again, me swears.
