There’s a Party in My City!

Quinn and I had a girls night out yesterday. We went to the theater for the fabulous show, Yo Gabba Gabba Live! If you have never heard of the show, it is a wacky children’s show for preschool age, filled with kooky characters, wonderful music and fabulous guest stars such as Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, and Tony Hawk.

I have to tell you, I may have been a little more excited to see the show than she was. I couldn’t wait to see what the creators would pull out for a live show.

They did not disappoint.

All the characters were there.

They had Bootsy Collins lead the Dancy Dance.

Biz Markie led Biz’s Beat of the Day; allowing some small children to come up and beat box on the mic with him.

The Aquabats came out and sang how it’s so cool in their pool.

There were two explosions of streamers.

One huge balloon drop.

All right on top of us!

Quinn had a blast, and behaved like a dream.

We went for Skyline afterwards and had some hot dogs and chili. That’s what she wanted to do.

We came home and got in our pajamas and watched the 2nd half of Annie.

It was a perfect night to say the least.

Until I woke up with heartburn. Skyline will do that.

As promised, here is the other restaurant knock-off recipe. My favorite salad from Panera.

Asian Chicken Salad

1 bunch romaine lettuce, chopped

1 c chicken breast, cooked and sliced

1/4 c cilantro, roughly chopped

5 green onions, chopped

1/4 c sliced almonds

2 Tb Rice Wine Vinegar

2 Tb Sugar

2 Tb Canola Oil

1 Tsp Sesame Oil

1 Tb Sesame Seeds

Place first 5 ingredients into a large salad bowl.

In a small bowl, add vinegar and sugar. Pour in Canola Oil then Sesame Oil, whisking while you add.

Add sesame seeds and whisk again.
Drizzle over salad and toss until ingredients are evenly distributed.

    YUMMERS! I love make-alike recipes, and sometimes struggle with them. I have been in a sandwich phase lately, and am going to try your bagel-wich, too!
    Thanks for keeping it fresh!
