For the last few weeks, FH has been going through a milkshake phase. Every day he wants a milkshake and he has been buying them like crazy.

I enjoy milkshakes, but once in a while is enough for me. The shakes are so thick, that I find it hard to finish one.

To save him some money, I decided to make him one. At first I was going to do a cookies n’ cream one, which is his favorite. But he’s been buying that one everyday, so I thought I’d do something different. And then I suddenly though of trying to do a Nutella one. Because I’m obsessed with putting Nutella in everything.

Not too long ago, a representative of Expressly Gourmet offered me a $50 coupon code to try out their services.

Expressly Gourmet is a restaurant delivery service currently available in San Diego, Portland and Denver. From their website, you can browse the menus of the restaurants available and place an order.

What I was really impressed with was the number of restaurant offerings. I’m used to having such a limited range of restaurants that can/will deliver to me because of distance. With Expressly Gourmet, I was able to order from restaurants outside of the normal delivery area limits.

Some restaurants have a delivery charge and some don’t. All the information is provided on the website. There doesn’t seem to be a rhyme or reason for the delivery charge. I found locations close to my home which had an $8 delivery charge and ones that were 20 minutes away that had no delivery charge.

Aren’t these cute?

I had this image in my mind for a while: to create breads shaped like little chicks peeping above the rim of some small cups. I actually tried a couple of times before I got it to work.
