Dry Soda Co. – New Flavor, Vanilla Bean!

May 27, 2009 5 Comments


I’ve enjoyed Dry Soda Co. pretty much since their beginnings back in 2005.  Recently, while I was at Whole Foods purchasing supplies for the beverage center, I noticed that Dry Soda released two new flavors, Vanilla Bean and Juniper Berry.  Both are excellent, however, the Vanilla Bean flavor will really suit EVERYONE’S taste buds.   Now the complete line of Dry Soda Co. flavors include KUMQUAT, LAVENDER, LEMONGRASS, RHUBARB, VANILLA BEAN and JUNIPER BERRY.  If you see these in your local Starbucks (I’ve seen them carried here in Seattle stores) or super market, expand you palette and try one or all of these flavors!

UPDATE: Apparently, I’ve been a little late to the party as a new Cucumber flavor has been released!  Can’t wait to try that one, my wife and I love cucumber water, so this must be even better!

Best Outdoor Grill – The Weber Genesis S-320

May 26, 2009 No Comments


It’s almost grilling season and if you are looking for the best outdoor grill, I highly recommend the Weber Genesis S-320.  I purchased this grill two years ago and have had absolutely no issues with it.  The grill fires up on the first try and it can get extremely high temps really fast… I’ve had it up to 600+ degrees!!!  I would consider the grill priced in the “middle” since you can get ones that costs a lot more and a lot less than $949 — it’s well worth the price!

I chose the “full stainless steel” version, however, it is not completely stainless steel.  There are some elements that are a powder coated, but, for the most part, it is.   I would recommend you also get a cover to protect the grill when not in use to keep it looking new.

Here are some features:

  • 3-burner outdoor propane grill; 42,000 Btu’s; 637 inches total cooking area
  • 507 square inches cooking area; 130 square inches warming rack
  • Fully enclosed stainless steel cart; 7mm diameter stainless steel rod cooking grates
  • 12,000 Btu input flush-mount side burner
  • 2 heavy-duty front locking casters and 2 heavy-duty back swivel casters – Weber Genesis S-320 – Weber Genesis S-320 Stainless Steel
