Have you ever seen Giada's Weekend Getaway? She has the sweetest set up... she gets to travel to cool spots and eat! I have watched every episode... taking notes as I watch.

When she traveled to Newport,  Rhode Island, she tooled around in one of these Scoot Coupes. One of these would be great to drive to work in... and cute.

In Chicago she went to Orange where she had frushi. She also ate a piece of french toast kabob from the plate of the girl sitting next to her at the bar.

How does one go about getting job where they go somewhere every weekend and strangers let you eat off their plate?


  1. If you decide to make the frushi, try it with mango (if you like mango, that is). There is a Thai dessert using sweet sticky rice mixed with coconut milk and is topped with mango that is so, so tasty!

  2. I live in RI and didn't even know about this! Ha! I practically live in Newport during the summer and getting around the crowds is not easy. I'm definatley looking forward to renting one of these little bad boys!! Thanks!

  3. I honestly don't think Giada actually eats!

  4. Breakfast at Orange is a must. We ate there 3 times out of the 5 days we were there. The Frushi is alright, but there are so many better things to be had, like the Pancake Flights, Pan-Seared Oatmeal, Chai Tea French Toast, and Cinnamon Roll Pancakes.

    If you decide to make Frushi at home using the CL recipe, you might want to reduce the amount of liquid. I found it had too much and the rice fell apart.
