Recently I was contacted by a representative for Wheat Thins to see if I wanted to sample the new flavors for Wheat Thin Crunch Stix: Cinnamon Kick and Chipotle Pepper.

Since I am a fan of Wheat Thins and love anything chipotle flavored, I readily agreed. I had not yet tried or seen Wheat Thins Crunch Stix, so it was also my first time experiencing the Crunch Stix product.

I really like the look of the Crunch Stix. While I enjoy regular Wheat Thins, the cracker shape make them look and feel like a healthy snack. The Crunch Stix seem more of a fun snack and the thicker shape provides a very satisfying crunch.

With more cheddar cheese to use up and a bunch of fresh chives courtesy of Baby Bro’s co-worker, I was inspired to make some homemade drop biscuits. The recipe was so easy to follow and quick to put together.

We recently had a family dinner to celebrate two birthdays. As usual, the request was for all you can eat sushi. We’ve pretty much exhausted all the all you can eat sushi options in San Diego. Out of the ones we have tried, our previous favorite was Mister Sushi, so we decided to go back there.

Things have changed since our last visit. The first thing we noticed was the remodeling. The restaurant previously had two large sushi bars, with tables sandwiched in the middle. But one of the sushi bar areas had been removed and replaced with tables. They had also changed the system.

We previously were able to sit at a table and enjoy the all you can eat. But now customers are required to sit at the bar. However, they made an exception for us if our entire party chose the all you can eat option.

The all you can eat menu appeared to be the same as our previous visit.  The price was also still the same, $28 per person.

One of the reasons we had previously liked this place was that we got all of our orders quickly and there weren’t any “forgotten items” like with all the other AYCE places we went to.  However, this time around, almost all of our orders were messed up. When we asked to see the menu, we saw many items crossed off, indicating we had already gotten it, but we never got them. The screwed up orders definitely made the dining experience frustrating.

As a result, we didn’t really enjoy this last visit and probably won’t be back. Here are the sushi orders we did consume.
