We've made it to another Friday and with only 8 more shopping days until Christmas. We'll be hitting the stores again today and this weekend, because although I'm all done and sitting pretty (asisde from needing to do a butt load of wrapping), Dave and the kids still need to wrap things up - jsyk the pun was intended. HA
So here we are on another FOODIE FRIDAY and as I mentioned earlier this week, I am about to share with you what Christmas Cookies have made it to my list this year. Drumroll please...
And there ya have it, if you are looking for me and want to find me next week...I'll be in the kitchen baking away and cooking a storm while I'm at it!
Now while we are on the subject of goodies. If you've ever browsed around on Travelin Cousins then you may have read: Cinnaholic - Award Winning Cinnamon Rolls!!! These Cinnamon Rolls are like the BEST ever and they are custom made - you choose your own frosting and toppings - pretty amazing!
Anyway short story - they were on Shark Tank, got funding and started franchising, after a few of the initial stores opened, now they've opened one in Brea, CA which is only like 15 minutes or so from us!!!
This is just AWESOME - the grand opening was on Wednesday, but I couldn't get there before their 9pm closing time and so we went to indulge yesterday!

Mac Nut Frosting, Brownie Bites and Walnuts - wow (c)travelincousins.com
And boy did we ever indulge. I even got brownies on top of my Cinnamon Roll - YUM!
The only thing however that was definitely noticable and also a slight disappointment is that the once monsterous sized cinnamon rolls have significantly downsized.
The price has pretty much stayed the same, they even now offer a loyalty program, and I'm still scraping the container of all it's ooooey goooooey yummy goodness, but I'm also kinda hoping that maybe the Berkeley store (the OG location) still has "the BIG you'd never think you could finish Cinnamon Rolls" that we became accustom to?! My fingers are crossed. But until then...this will do just fine!
Much to do today and we'll top it off with being in the 108th Newport Beach Christmas Boat Parade - more on this in tomorrow's Daily Scoop!
