bubble tea

i tried my hand at making bubble tea. it seemed simple enough.

1/2 strong iced tea
1/2 milk (we used vanilla soy milk)
sweetener of your choice to taste
cooked tapioca pearls

everything was great BUT i think the tapioca wasn't right. the bag had no english on it. so, i looked online and followed that.

any help?

it was a hit otherwise.

no joke

Please do not make my food allergy into a joke. I don't find it amusing. Nor do I like having food shoved in my face with the "yum. Don't you wish you could have this?" Haha deal. I'm a grown woman. And, I'm stuck with this. it wasn't a choice.

I don't know if it's only in Kentucky or Walmart. But, no thank you.

Starbucks refreshers

These are good. Wasn't sure at first. But, if it's ice cold. Also, tried the raspberry pomegranate. Not my thing.

getting older/allergies

it seems the older i get the worse my allergy gets. I've had 2 major attacks in the past month. definitely not something i need. it seems they find different ways to list it in the ingredients.

Vegan chocolate bar

Very bitter. Didn't taste any honey flavor. Would not buy again.

Purchased at whole foods, Lexington, ky
Price $6.00

Soy whip cream

Expense! But, tastes exactly the same as the regular dairy type. The people in my house loved it and they can have milk.

purchased at whole foods, lexington, ky
price $5.19

finding foods

I've lived in Lexington for about 2 months now. while this is a largish town, it's definitely not Orlando/Kissimmee. finding vegan/dairy free foods are very hard. the whole foods is about 1/3  the size of the ones in Orlando and a lot more expensive. the super Kroger has a section for special diets. but, it's mostly just organic. makes finding foods a hunt. not bad. just interesting. at least, I'm pretty much downtown.
