It has been exceedingly hot here for the last few weeks. So hot that I keep forgetting that summer has just technically started; for as long as it’s been hot, it feels like fall should be right around the corner. Today was a little cooler – only mid-80s and not so much humidity – but still relatively hot.
We had spent the morning doing some housework and then running errands which can zap your energy on a regular day. By the time we returned home, Bubbles had fallen asleep and everyone was ready for some lunch and a break. I wanted to do something a little special and thought that something cold and creamy would be perfect. One of hubby’s favorite fast food restaurants is Wendy’s and they have those tasty Frosties! They sounded like the perfect way to cool down on a Saturday afternoon.
Did you know Wendy’s has these cute Frosty key chains? You pay a dollar for them and then every time you make a purchase and show it at Wendy’s you get a free mini Frosty! I think it’s an excellent deal.
We usually eat at Wendy’s a couple of times per month. Their fries had always been the best around, but since they switched to the new Natural Cut they are even better! And their burgers, of course, are good, too. For me, I love the fact that I can get things like a baked potato or chili there. Plus the Frosties, of course!
While waiting in line I had the opportunity to read some of the signs around me. Their new Redhead Roasters coffees and their breakfast menu seem to be the two things they are promoting most right now. I haven’t tried either yet, though my husband has mentioned a couple of times he’d like to give their Artisan Breakfast Sandwiches a try. The other new menu item I noticed on the way in were the Strawberry Shortcake Frosty Parfaits. That sounds very tasty!
Everyone was excited when I returned home with our treats. Bubbles loves baked potatoes so she dug right into hers. She was also very interested in the Frosties. We don’t like her to have a lot of sugar, so she hadn’t tried one before, but today was going to be her day to get to have a taste!
Remember the key chain for the free mini Frosty? This is what they look at. The perfect size for Bubbles – or so she thinks! (The Frosty does come a little more full than that. But if you look closely, you can see Bubbles peering up over the edge of the table. Mama forgot that the little munchkin is getting taller with a better reach, and she had already swiped it off the table and dumped part of it on the floor.)
