Foodie Family

I vote that every day of work is a half day.  We met up with the party-animal Jacob's Familia and headed over to the Creamery on Ninth (BYU's ice cream/hang out parlor).

I got a heavenly Hawaiian Chicken Sandwich (I guess the one inch piece of pineapple constitutes it as a Hawaiian sandwich).  The winner of the meal was the soft fluffy bun...... pretty sure I could put every meal I eat inside that bun and be happy for the rest of my life.

Reason #4235 I married Billy.....the Jacobs Family are foodies too (okay, let's be honest you know that this reason is in my top 10).

IMG 5504

I am weird and anytime I go to eat with more than 4 people I LOVE to have a circular table/booth because I want to see everyone at once.  No me gusta trying to lean across the table to hear what the other side of the table is talking about.

Dessert is a complete must when we are together.

For some reason I felt the need to be shy in this picture or I am just trying to see how hard I can squeeze BIlly before I realize that I am acting like a five year old.

I think that banana split could eat you gma Jacobs.

Time to get back to the party.  We are chopping up fruit and veggies for the bro's graduation party tomorrow.  After that we are going to get bundled up for Billster's baseball games....wish him luck.....he reads all the comments too:)


Do you like banana splits?

-I am not even going to answer this one....if you don't know the answer, I don't know if we can be friends.  Billy's biggest flaw is that he doesn't like bananas and yes, I have actually gotten mad at him because of this weird quirk.

Do you speak any other languages?

-You may have noticed that I threw in a few Spanish words.......I am pretty much fluent.....3 years of Spanish in Jr. High will do that to you.

Are you shy or outgoing?

-I think I am outgoing to a fault and people wonder why a complete stranger is telling them their life story and for their advice about life-altering questions.

I got about halfway through the Spanish Rosetta Stone CDs before we went to Cabo last year. I actually got pretty dang good at it! I was SHOCKED at how much I was able to use and understand while in Mexico. Then we came home and I kind of lost interest. I haven't used the CDs since. And probably won't until we plan another vacation south of the border.

The amount of ice cream you eat amazes me. I love bananas and I love ice cream but not a HUGE fan of banana splits...weird, right? I think it might be too complicated a dessert for me to handle! ha

I speak a little broken Italian to communicate with the grandparentals. They're off the boat so you know...non parlano Inglese. I suck at it but they get me 90% of the time!

Love, love, love banana splits...or pretty much anything banana!! My mom makes this wonderful banana pudding with vanilla wafers on it!! :D
I'm fluent in portugese!!

I've never actually eaten at the Creamery, just had the ice cream! I married into a foodie family as well and I love it. However I usually eat myself sick every time we get together.

Good luck Billster!

Those fries and that bun...can I have fries in a bun? I think that sounds just about right :-)

Anything banana -- split, creme pie, cake, candy...SOLD!

I need Rosette Stone! They advertise on my Pandora about 70 trillion times a day and i'm about to take them up on the offer so I am longer so broken in Spanish. Too much time having fun in college and not learning mi espanol!

I think the real world has made me less shy. I definitely enjoy my "me" time but also HAVE to gab my friends ears off at least 1 hour a day!

I speak FRENCH. that is my first language.
then some English and a little bit of Hungarian, my dad is from Hungary.

I think I am shy, Bill says outgoing.

I speak French and TEACH it!! And my bf just proposed in FRENCH yesterday!!!!! Oops I guess I should say my fiance!

My family is full of foodies too! I am really super social so I prefer round tables too! I want to have one big convo and its so much easier! I've never been a big banana split fan. I use to be fluent in American Sign Language I took it all the way through ASL 6 and I wanted to be a translator but life got in the way of school. I am not fluent anymore it really takes using it to remember it!

OOOO Hawaiian rolls. Might need to go get a pack of those on my way home AND EAT THEM ALL.

//shifty eyes//

//dashes off, will shiv anyone who tries to snatch hawaiian rolls//

Banana splits are my JAM.

Banana Splits are full of delish! We go through about 3 bunches of bananas a week in this house

I do not speak any other languages but I understand a lot of Spanish because of where I live. You just pick it up~

So you are the person who tells me their life story in the grocery store line....I am one of those people who is spoken to A LOT in lines...and I am actually socially awkward/disaster idk if that counts as SHY LOL!

At April 21, 2011 at 5:14 PM , Blogger Christine said...

That's a whole lot of french fries!

At April 21, 2011 at 5:29 PM , Blogger Jogging with Fiction said...

Where can you go to get fries in party hats? Those look delicious!

I speak spanish and took latin for a few years. It was an immersion class, so we had to speak it. Yep I can speak a dead language!

Outgoing or shy depends on the circumstance.

I barely passed Spanish in high school, but my best friend in elementary school taught me Japanese, and I was pretty good at it- until she moved away and I forgot almost everything!

I loveee ice cream, but am not a big fan of banana splits! :(

I would usually consider myself shy, but most people (friends, family, and coworkers) tell me this isn't true at all-- or at least my shyness doesn't last too often!

I LOVE BANANA SPLITS!! my family has a tradition to go get them too. Love it. Your family is just precious girl, like you!

I love banana splits, but I don't think there is a dessert I don't like!

I am actually pretty quiet and shy until you get to know me.

Banana splits are heaven in a bowl:)
Lunch looks delicious as always!

Good luck Billy!!

i was at yogurtland for like 2.5 hours today. every time someone came in I was hoping it was you with the fam. dang it. guess you cheated on yogurtland with the creamery. ;) we also went to cafe rio...2 chances to see you and it just didn't happen. we should probably change that soon! miss you!!!!

Foodie families are the best!!
I don't like bananas either...Ok, I like banana bread and dried bananas, but not "real" bananas. I like all the other ingredients in the banana split though! :D
I took Spanish in high school but don't use it very often so I've forgotten a lot.
I guess I'd say I'm pretty shy. I wish I wasn't sometimes.
Good luck to Billy!

Circular tables are a must! I hate being out of the loop of the other side of the table's conversations - I just want to talk to everyone!
I'd love to be fluent in something, but the only spanish I know is basics from high school.

Oh love all those yummy food pics! I need a dessert family like yours!!

looks delicious as usual with your fam! i'm so excited to go home for easter this weekend and chow down on my momma's food and of course raid the pantry, fridge, and cabinets and eat as much candy as i can. :)

-banana splits? never had one! omg. but i never met a dessert i didn't like.

-un poco espanol. UN POCO.

-OUTGOING, once i get comfortable with people :)

More family fun! :) I love round tables, too. I want one in my home. I speak a little bit of Spanish. Billy is fluent which comes in handy. Banana splits remind me of being a kid. I love bananas and feel sad for people who don't. Ha. Good luck in your game, Billy!

I am only outgoing if I know people. I am generally shy.

Hawaiian sandwich sounds good, you are making me hungry ;-)

i love anything ice cream, and if i don't eat at least one banana a day i go into panic mode.
i speak ukrainian, russian, english, and spanish, i LOVE it when you throw in spanish words here and there :)
I'm kinda outgoing/shy... it's so weird... depends on the setting and who i'm with, i hate going into shy/awkward mode...

And GO BILLY!!!! you're the!!!

At April 21, 2011 at 7:24 PM , Blogger Vanessa @ Gourmet Runner said...

Good luck Billy--P.s. I also hate bananas. Hubby doesn't understand me.
I speak German maybe 50% of the time at home--stepdad is German and my whole fam speaks it fluently.

Your sandwich looks yummy! Enjoy the time with your in-laws and good luck to the billster!

I speak broken english.....I did grow up in Nephi. :) Small town hick language at it's best.

I am very outgoing but when I am with a large group I am kind of shy.

Just yesterday I was at lunch with my coworkers and said that I wished the work day ended at noon each day. How great would that be???

banana splits are amazing. I love the nuts, cherries, and whipped cream!! Althought, I dn't even remember the last time I ate a banana split. So sad.

At April 21, 2011 at 8:06 PM , Blogger XLMIC said...

Best to Bill :)

Yum to banana splits.
I can speak lame French, lamer Italian, lamest Spanish and off-the-charts lame German.
I am outgoing but off-putting, I think. Today in Target I tried to strike up a conversation with two other moms... actually one of them did the initial striking... but the other was a total sourpuss and wouldn't give an inch :(

At April 21, 2011 at 8:32 PM , Blogger Pam said...

Tiny Grandma behind the huge banana split is so cute!!!!

I took 4+ years of German, and only remember bits and pieces. I doubt I could put together more than a 3-word sentence if you paid me!

I'm really shy and awkward when I first meet people, but once you get to know me, I never shut up :)

I love banana splits!! It's a flavor party in your mouth :) Especially with crunchy walnuts on top.

My boyfriend's pretty weird about bananas too. He only likes the under-ripe ones that have a little green on the ends. But I love over-ripe ones with brown spots on the skins. It's sweeter that way!

At April 21, 2011 at 9:40 PM , Blogger Reese's Runner said...

I HATE bananas too!!! And gma Jacobs is adorable!! And I've decided the better looking you are, the more you can get away with getting crazy. Looks like you got a hall pass to crazyville woman!!

Your family is too cute! Girl, I too took spanish for 3 years but only know like 2 words. I'm pretty shy until I get to really know you!

You are NOT outgoing to a fault-- people love you because you are so sweet and make them feel comfortable, it's a good thing!

Looks like you're having a great time!! Good luck to Billy in his game!!

I don't know if I've ever really had a banana split... hmm.

I took 2 years of Spanish in high school and 2 years in college. I know enough that I could probably get around in a Spanish speaking country because I know how to say "bathroom," "hamburger," "beer," and "water." That's all I need.

I can be shy but once I know people I am VERY outgoing.

Believe it or not, with the amount of ice cream that I eat and absolutely ADORE, I have never once had a banana split! Am I crazy??? :)
