Rolled Ice Cream At Rolling Rey's Review

I keep hearing about rolled ice cream and knew I needed to try it. If you don't know, rolled ice cream is basically just ice cream made on a steel surface. You mix cream and other flavors on it and because it's super cold, the ingredients freeze quickly and then you roll everything. It'll look like this:






I learned that a rolled ice cream place opened near us and knew I wanted to try it. It's called Rolling Rey's and there are several locations in San Antonio. It is open from 330-9 Monday-Thursday, Friday-Saturday 12-10, and Sunday 12-9.





The menu has various rolled ice cream flavors, plus they do smoothies and Rios Frios. Yup, there's even a vegan mix for the rolled ice cream.




It's a small space, but it's done up well so you don't feel cramped.





We placed our orders and watched in awe as our ice cream was rolled.





Here's a close up photo of rolled ice cream. I didn't want to get too close to the lady and freak her out.




My son got the Berry Blast:





It had chocolate and berries mixed in, plus a mixture on top. He said it was delicious.


My husband ordered the Churro:




My daughter got the Chocolate Chip cookie one:



I tried the Oreo one:




I took a bite out of everyone's even though they groaned at me. I think my favorite is the Churro. I'd do that one the next time. Mine was good as well. There were bits of Oreos mixed into the ice cream.



We will be certainly be back at Rolling Rey's! Have you ever tried rolled ice cream before?

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.




HEY, IT'S OKAY....


.....to have been buying all the pumpkin things. Some are good. Others taste funky.



....to have tried rolled ice cream for the first time. I'll have a review up soon!



.....to have seen It Chapter Two over the weekend. I did jump a few times. I might have shouted "oh sh*t" at one point too.



....to get to go to SeaWorld this weekend for a PassMember preview of a new haunted house they'll have for Howl-O-Scream. My kids are coming with me. They are braver than I am!



....to love this photo of Mr. Business looking studious.

Boma At The Animal Kingdom Lodge Review

The last day at Walt Disney World is always tough. I never want to go! Normally on our last day we have early flights, but this time it was later. I didn't want to sit around and do nothing, so I made reservations for breakfast at Boma. I had never eaten there before, plus I wanted to check out the Animal Kingdom Lodge. We'd so stay there if we won the lottery but alas, it's not in our budget. But it truly is a gorgeous resort.




We were staying at Port Orleans French Quarter and took a Lyft to Animal Kingdom Lodge.









The breakfast buffet is from 730 AM-12 and there's also a dinner from 5PM-930. I recommend making reservations by calling 407-939-5277 or you can book online.




It's pretty inside Boma:









I was excited that you got as much Jungle Juice as you wanted. I told our waiter to keep it coming. Tommy even liked it, and normally he's not a fan of juice.




And yes, there is PLENTY of food.


Of course Mickey Waffles are available:




The buffet has a mix of African and American cuisine, so even the picky eaters will find something they like.



















The food seems to keep going and going!




I won't lie, I had many plates.










While we were eating, some of the cast members were playing on the drums, so it gave the restaurant a wonderful vibe.



My son and I ate SO much. To help work off all the food, we explored out back. Sometimes animals are out, but there weren't any when we were there.








If you can afford to stay at the Animal Kingdom Lodge, I certainly would do so. We'll probably be back to Boma one day.


Have you ever been?
