Recently, I was contacted by a representative from Clearly Fresh Bags, who offered to provide me with a sample of their bags.

The bags are designed to keep fruits and vegetables fresh for a longer period of time, up to 50% longer according to the company.

A few days later, I received one pack, which consists of ten bags. The bags are 12 inches by 14 inches, making them large enough to fit most items.

Each bag contains a breatheway membrane which I’ve also seen used on the large packages of broccoli at Costco.

The first thing I did was put a bunch of very ripe strawberries inside the bag. The strawberries were the last of the season at the Carlsbad strawberry fields. If you’ve ever been there, you know there strawberries are very sweet, but also very ripe and usually have to be eaten within a day or two at the most. I didn’t have a test sample that wasn’t in the bag because I didn’t want any strawberries to rot.

I love scones. It’s one of my favorite baked goods. I’m not quite sure why. They aren’t very sweet, and they have are heavy on the flour, creating a texture that can be a little dry. But something about them is absolutely addicting to me.

I especially love cream scones because they tend to be more tender and are easy to make.

My brothers are obsessed with noodle soup places. A tip from mmm-yoso alerted me that Luong Hai Ky had once again reopened its location on Convoy, so this past weekend I took the family there.

I haven’t been inside since Luong Hai Ky closed and became Phat. When we went inside, everything looked exactly the same, down the the fishtanks and fish.

There is a special for the grand opening, where the pho is buy 2 get 1 free, but no one was interested in pho.

I ordered the duck noodle soup after my brothers had raved about it when they had it at the Mira Mesa location. There was a good amount of duck pieces in my soup, though I found the roasted duck to be a little salty. I got mine with egg noodles.
