VLog #FridayFavorites : January 11,2013


Toni over at A Daily Dose of Toni has kicked off the new year with a fun VLog Meme. I don’t usually participate in meme’s much anymore or VLogs but this is a new year and I’ve decided to give it a go. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone a little and get in some video time. So enjoy my response to the prompt:

    My favorite restaurant is Olive Garden and my favorite meal there is chicken parmigiana. I love Italian food !!!!

  2. My favorite restaurant is Panera Bread…perhaps it is because since moving to California it is not as readily available like it was back in STL. OR the fact that I have small children and going out to eat ANYWHERE is super hard. 😉

  3. My favorite restaurant is the Fish Wife. It’s a small seafood restaurant in my neighborhood.

  4. My favorite restaurant is an Italian joint in the neighborhood. Eveything there is great but I’m partial to lasagna!

  5. My favorite restaurant is Longhorn, and my recent favorite meal is the Outlaw Ribeye!

  6. I love a local Mexican restaurant, Mago and their Rajas burrito!

  7. Sherri Lewis says:

    My favorite restaurant is Olive Garden and my favorite meal there is Chicken Marsala

  8. My favorite restaurant is a local cafe called, The Upper Crust, and I love their House Salad. It’s reall so good!

  9. My favorite restaurant would have to be BJ’s Restaurant and Brewhouse. They have some really great pizza and their pot stickers are SO good.

  10. My favorite restaurant is Olive Garden.

    I don’t really understand.. Did you post a vlog response because I can’t seem to find it.. I love this concept.. It’s so much fun to watch people as they speak… Oh, and I love Carrabba’s! Love their lasagna

  13. Summer Davis says:

    My husband is from Tampa and I’ve heard of Cody’s before! I’ve never been there, but he has raved about their rolls and salads!

    I did a vlog for this meme too and my favorite restaurants are Bonefish Grille and a local Raleigh, NC Lebanese restaurant called Sitti. Lebanese is similar to Greek but they use mint instead of dill. The food is AH-MAZING. If you’re ever in Raleigh, make sure you go there.

  14. My very favorite restaurant is Pappadeaux – it’s a seafood/cajun place and as weird as it sounds my very favorite thing to get is fried alligator. I didn’t know I would love it so much but now it’s all I ever get

  15. Isn’t the butcher paper on the tables great? Especially with children (and even with my teen) it’s a great thing to play around with before dinner.

    When the children were little, I also loved Joe’s Crab Shack because they had a little playground next to the outside patio. The children could play and the adults could talk before and after dinner.

    I always thought meme was pronounced in a way that rhymes with seam.! Learn something every day. And that brownie desert you described? I would have been out the door for that tonight. Disappointed it’s not an option anymore 🙁

  16. I’m glad you’re able to get out of your shell, that’s great! I love Applebees myself.

  17. I love fresh rolls and apple cinnamon butter?! WHOA! 🙂 Sounds delish!

  18. I love Texas Roadhouse and their rolls with cinnamon butter. Tasty!

  19. Don’t even mention apple cinnamon butter! It’s so dang delicious and I have none right now, lol.

    I totally love you for making this vlog because my comfort zone is definitely BEHIND the camera. So maybe if you can be on camera then I can too 🙂

  20. I love family-friendly restaurants too- I don’t think we have that one here but I’ll have to double check because it sounds great! {&I’m big on bread, especially rolls!} &We do lots of chains too which is so funny since we live in Vegas where there’s some of the best-of-the-best.

    My favorite restaurant is “Cracker Barrel”! Love their Gift Shop as well as Home-cooked meals!

  22. I am so glad you are joining in and you are going to be comfortable in front of the camera before you know it. We don’t have a Cody’s here but it sounds amazing. The rolls sound to die for but then again I have a weakness for bread LOL. I love the blondie too 🙂 It’s so yummy! Of course anything brownie I love. Thanks so much for joining in and I can’t wait to see you again Friday.

  23. never heard of that restaurant before

  24. Hey Colleen! So great to SEE you again! Gosh your hair is so pretty – I have serious hair envy LOL

    I went to a Cody’s in Brandon Florida with a friend of mine who lives down there and LOVED it. I can totally second those rolls. AMAZING. And the ranch dressing was amazing too so I also had just a salad. Yum yum!

    • LOL it is great to see you too. I actually decided to join after seeing your “early” post about this. Thanks for the compliment.

      I really do miss the rolls they are awesome and yep that was the dressing I got too!
