Doing It ALL with Kelly P.
Heading for Green, State College PA

Heading for Green, State College PA

August 9, 2020

EP 36 - Welcome to summer and being in the GREEN! In order to escape the yellow we head to an area where things were just beginning to turn around. My co-host, Jen and I head up to State College for some dine-in eating, Trader Joe’s, ice cream, and light shopping for “inappropriate” grilling accessories. We discuss the day’s delights outdoors at my house as well as my new discission to become sober. 

Something a little different, rather than a Signature Drink we have a Signature Treat. It's called a Dole Whip and to make your own you will need:

1 bag of frozen pineapple

I can of full fat coconut milk

2 TBSP of sugar or sugar substitute

Ice cream maker (optional, but recommended)

Whipped Cream (optional)

Blend all ingredients in a food processor or blender until smooth. You may want to soften the frozen pineapple chunks just a bit. Pour into ice cream maker and process for about 5 minutes. You may opt out of using the ice cream maker, but your whip will be less smooth. Freeze any leftovers for future serving. Top with whipped cream or enjoy plain.

EP 31 - The capitol city…Harrisburg. What can I say other than it’s come a long way. My co-host, Jen W., takes me on an adventure that includes the most fantastic donut EVER found at Broad Street Market to be paired with two of my favorites - a London Fog & books. We try a few crazily flavored ice creams at The Urban Churn. Who says you can’t enjoy a cold treat in the winter?!?! We enjoy a vegan lunch at the Vegetable Hunter and take in the beautiful murals along 3rd Street. Plus a few other unplanned haunts. No libations during the episode because we are recording in Jen’s Toyota.
