We heard a rumor that there were some great sales up at the Outlets for Memorial Day, so we decided to make a day of it.
We had breakfast at Jamba Juice and drove up to Camarillo just in time for the stores to open their doors! We’re glad we got there early because by the end of the day, it was packed!
I had success at Ann Taylor Loft (my favorite store!)
Didn’t get this one, but it was fun anyways!
I love how they reserve fitting rooms while you shop!
We literally shopped from 10am til 5:30pm! It was fun to hang out and enjoy the sunny day together. The mall is outdoors, which we love. Irving’s pedometer said we walked over 3.5 miles shopping today!
Oh… get this! In the ADIDAS store, we found ONE Men’s Boston Marathon Jacket… for $24.99 and then 25% off!!
I was really mad to see that there! It’s too early!!! They had 2009 Boston Marathon Finisher Shirts there too. I think you should have to earn those shirts! Not buy them on clearance at the outlet store! Or maybe that’s just me being upset for spending $90 on the same item. lol
ANNNYWAYS, the trip was definitely a success!
For dinner, we had a Costco Take and Bake Pizza!
And THEN I made some Christmas Miracle Banana+Nutella Soft Serve Ice Cream!
If you’ve never had this, you have to make it! Here’s an easy tutorial!
You have to freeze some ripe peeled bananas ahead of time and keep them in the freezer.
Grab your food processor (or a really good blender):
Drop in your frozen bananas:
It’ll probably look a little chunky at first, but just keep blending. Eventually, it becomes creamy, like ice cream!
Now…here’s the crucial step… add Nutella!!!!!
(Irving is mad I keep eating away at his jar of Nutella… but you snooze you lose, buddy.)
It was SOOOOO good! You can definitely eat it plain (just bananas), but I like to add in some chocolate or coconut just to kick it up a little bit.
Next time, I think I’ll add some peanut butter too. It really does taste like ice cream!
We just made the banana with nutella and we can’t believe how good it is!!!
Where do you get these ideas???
A nice haul! We went to Costco too and got the cheese pizza – then we added artichoke hearts, sliced black olives, tomato and fresh basil. One trick to the basil they put on their pizzas: take it off before you throw the pizza in the oven and add the basil (that we chop up to spread further) for just the last minute or so… then it doesn’t dry out… bon apetit!
