All I want...



Today all I wanted was a vanilla/chocolate custard twist with rainbow jimmies - yes jimmies, not sprinkles, jimmies! That is what we call them at home. Like this one:
Except three times bigger than this one! But besides it being Sunday we also don't have custard stands in UT. So even tomorrow I won't get one. Ironically to find this image I had to search for soft serve ice cream cone with rainbow sprinkles - not right!

Also I really would like a real live Philly Cheesesteak, though that craving never goes away! We recently found a place called The Cape May Grill here in Provo. Cape May is a city in NJ. I thought it might be a good one. The meat was close, but the bread was AWFUL! Soggy and soft, it needs to be slightly crisped. And no one here can get the cheese right. One place here uses cream cheese, but they also over pepper a ton so I get the cream cheese just to cut the heat from the black pepper.  But its just not right, not right at all!

ahhh, I so totally know the feeling! When I say jimmies, people just look at me weird and ask again what Im talking about... They are the weird ones!

Care, I have some places for you to try! First, have you tried Coney's? I've never had their custard but I hear it's pretty good. And second, there is this place, and it was the closest thing I found to a good old fashioned cheese steak. It's on Center st in Provo past the freeway on the right side. If you get to geneva you've gone too far. Anyway, it's called The Great Steak and Everything. Their food is yummy! Greasy and awful and amazing! :) Oh and the onion rings. Yes, try it. Let me know what you think.

Have you had the custard at Coney's? I have only been once, but it was YUM! On University Pkwy by Deseret Book

I HATE craving something impossible to get. Hate it. I hope the feeling abates or you find a genie in a bottle.

I absolutely hate cravings. Boo. Good luck on finding something to calm them down. :)

Yay to Jimmies!! There is no place like the east coast for ice cream like that- no one understands the concept of dipping the entire ice cream into a tub of jimmies to get it completely covered. I have searched high and low down here-but nothing! I feel your pain-both on the philly cheese steak and the ice cream!

I don't know if I would like a real LIVE Philly Cheesesteak!! I like mine good and dead! Hehhee! Okay, funny to me. I have cravings all the time and man they can get interesting, can't they? Good luck finding something to satisfy you for now.
