Community Supported Agriculture plus Contest to win a 20 week subscription

Yasukochi Family Farm makes it simple to get your daily intake of fruits and vegetables. Their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) boxes deliver 11-15 different produce items. Each item is grown using responsible farming methods. Most products are grown using organic farming methods when possible. All products are grown by responsible food & safety conscious farmers. The majority of the freshly picked produce is grown by Yasukochi Family Farms located in Oceanside and other local partner growers.  If your in San Diego check out Yasikochi’s CSA boxes and help support local farms.

I have gotten two CSA boxes and wow their produce is so fresh. The fruit is extra sweet thanks to them only using items that are in season. Getting this box every week has made it so easy to get my fruit and veggie intake in. I have tried making lots of different recipes that I had not tried before. There are even some veggies that I rarely eat being enjoyed more frequently like eggplants.

If you would like order a CSA box for yourself check out

Yasukochi is having a summer Strawberry Jam contest! Now until August 1st submit your strawberry jam at any of the Yasikochi Family Farms Farmer Market stands( or if you are a current CSA box recipient just simply leave your jam entry on the doorstep on the day your box is delivered and they will pick it up! I have never made jam before but I do love strawberry jam.  Good luck! One winner will get a 20 week box subscription.

Brick or Treat

As Halloween approaches one of my favorite activities is to check out Brick or Treat at Legoland, California with the family. It is the perfect family friend event for all ages. Brick or Treat is separate event for Legoland and is held every Saturday in October. The festivities begin at 5pm and wrap up at 9pm. Grab your costume and lets check out what Brick or Treat has to offer this year.

Best things about Brick or Treat at Legoland, California:

1.Rides & Aquarium:

Brick or Treat tickets allow you access both into Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium. Both of these parks are always a blast no matter what day of the year it is.

Certain rides  at Legoland have been modified such as the coast cruise takes a spooky ghost turn. As always there are lots of rides to check out through out the park.

The Aquarium as always is a great place to learn new facts and check out all the animals inside the Sea Life Aquarium. Lots of Halloween decor all around. Inside the Aquarium there is two treat stations.

3. Shows

Through out the park there are different shows going on all with the halloween theme. Lots of the classic Halloween music playing through out the park. There is even contest in which you can participate and maybe even going home with a prize.


All through out the park you Brick or Treat and get lots of treats though out Legoland as well as Sea Life Aquarium. Both children and adults are encouraged to get treats through out the park. There is a different variety of candy, pretzels, Lego bricks and pop badges. The workers are generous and give out handfuls of treats at each station.

5. Seasonal Snacks

There are tons of seasonal snacks through out the park such as apple cider. For this year the two new seasonal snacks include a pumpkin crepe and a monster mango chili shake.

6. Get in the halloween spirit

I absolutely love halloween because I love getting in costume. Both children and adult are encouraged to join in on the fun. Lots of dance parties to get your groove on. Character meet and greets located all through out the park. Family themed building activities such as building your own lego pumpkin. As always there a ton of Halloween photo scenes.

San Diego County Fair

The annual San Diego County Fair is opening soon on May 31st till July 4th. This years theme revolves around OZ. Be sure to follow the yellow brick road to all the fun activities the fair has to offer. As always there are lots of food, games, and entertainment.

One of the newest thing for this year is how to purchase tickets. The newest electronic ticket system is easy to use and can save your tickets on to the app. You can even check out what you spent your tickets on and how many tickets you have using the app. The new app system helps the environment by removing the paper tickets.

As always there are lots of delicious interesting options to try out at the fair. Eating healthy most of the year to indulge in some deep fried goodness. I have never had pupusas before but they are like a fried tortilla stuffed on the inside with different fillings. This one had bacon, beans and cheese. This was one of my favorites and the flavors went well.

Mac and cheese egg roll was interesting and the perfect way to have Mac and cheese on the go. I’m surprised that it isn’t dried up after the frying.

If you want to get an adult beverage you can find one at the speakeasy at the fair. I got to sample one of the margaritas. They are environmentally friendly and use a bike to power the blender if you want a blended margarita. In order to find the speakeasy you can go to any of the bar and they will give you clues to find the speak easy.

Be sure to check out the fair and everything it has to offer from May 31st to the 4th of July.
