Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers #FoodReview

Happily, we were invited to experience Kansas-based, Freddy's Frozen Custard and Steakburgers! We're huge fans! 

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers is a fast-casual restaurant franchise offering lean ground beef steakburgers, Vienna Beef hot dogs and crispy shoestring fries, as well as dessert treats prepared with freshly churned chocolate or vanilla frozen custard. The restaurant brings to life the America of the late 1940s and early 1950s, a post-war era of pride and values focusing on unity and quality family time.

We had the best of times at Freddy's!  Seriously, our teenage sons love great burgers. Freddy's was a treat for all. This is a really fun and tasty steak burger experience. 

Double Steakburger at Freddy's

Our sons loved the Steakburgers. The double cheese burger is a 5.oz of the lean steak burger. The fresh sides were great additions. You can add any traditional burger toppings. 

Isn't Freddy's beautiful and fun! I felt like we were going  back to the 50s Diners! It is a bright, fun and clean atmosphere. 

Because our family has to take a 'familiyselfie' when we do all the things, we wanted to share this one on this fine day at Freddy's!  So proud of my hungry crew for pausing BEFORE dinner. :) 

The dining room is bright, spacious and has plenty of seating. We sat in the booths. 

Back to the delicious Burgers! Here is the Classic Freddy's Cheeseburger with fixings. Abundant for sure. The theme for us was how tasty the fries were. 

Here is a look at the history of Freddy's. He was a Wichita, Kansas Family and Small Business man who was a US Military man before starting his small business! We love his story of serving our Country and then creating a thriving family business. What a legacy! 

Now, that you are eager to visit a Freddy's near you, here is a sample of the Combo Meals! If you like Hot Dogs, the Chicago Dog Freddy's Style looks incredible! What about an original Double Patty Melt, Grilled Chicken Breast Sandwich. So many great choices. 

My husband, Boulder Mountain Man really enjoyed splurging the calories on the Double Bacon Cheese Burger!  

Now, to the delicacy the Frozen Custard! Our boys LOVED the Dirt Worm Sundae! 

Here is our traditional  #TerrellTribe carselfie! Even though it wasn't our SundaySelfie, we took one for posterity. Happy faces after a tasty meal at Freddy's!

Special Guest Blogger: Today, I, proudly and happily, introduce you to my son. He is blogging about his knitting business. Welcome, Stanton! 

Hi, my name is Stanton Terrell. Knitting is a passion I have, and I find joy in doing it. My grandma first taught me to knit years ago. She has taught me almost everything I know!

I am a very experienced, and skilled knitter. I have been knitting for over 7 years.  Knitting is a fun hobby to do. I have been knitting many items for a long time.

There will be much more to come. I am currently building my shop, slowly but surely. 

I have had a lot of fun knitting over the past years. I have made scarfs, hats, socks, and more. 
Broadening my horizons, I wanted to see if I could make a coat. I accomplished this last year when I surprised my Mama with a full length crimson coat for Christmas! She loves it! I am glad I did it!
Just recently, I have made my first afghan blanket. It is so warm and cozy. I love it! 
My popular sells, are the sashay scarfs, and my hats. Hats are so much fun to make! I can custom make almost anything you want, for a hat.  I can make Ear flap hats, custom monogram name hats, custom design hats, and more! I have made many many different scarves. I enjoy making scarves. Just like the hats, I can custom make just about anything.

Atlas International School Raleigh Premier Preschool - 9th Grade

Raleigh, North Carolina offers private school, Atlas International School for PreK through 9th grade. Atlas offers foreign languages and music lessons. Atlas is a private, part-day, parent-cooperative school. Atlas is for students with families and caregivers that want to be involved with their child's education. Atlas offers Fridays as an alternate day to homeschool, travel or be off of school. Atlas has a short day, short week and short year and Atlas meets the North Carolina education requirements and is approved to transfer or graduate to other local schools. 

Atlas International School is a preschool, elementary, middle school and 9th Grade. The student to teacher ratio at Atlas is 6 to 1 for all grades.

Some students need a 6 to 1 student to teacher ratio to thrive. Some students need to be outdoors for regular recess and activity. Some students execrate with healthy food for lunch.

Then, Atlas is for your child.

Atlas is an international curriculum that includes foreign languages (Spanish and French) and music (violin and piano). Atlas stresses the healthy child, providing our students with two recesses a day and allowing only healthy foods for lunch. Atlas is fully approved by the state of North Carolina and all records are transferable.

Atlas is a fun, exciting and educational place for our students. See, we have Super Heroes in Action. 

Atlas International School is a parent-cooperative school whereby parents agree to actively help with homework each night. Atlas meets for a shorter day than most schools (9:30 to 2:00 or 9:30 to 2:30), thereby giving your child more time to pursue individual interests. Before-school and after-school programs are provided for elementary and middle school students.

Atlas has a educational programs and events like the Science Fair shown here. This a board from one of our students. 

Atlas easily covers the full curriculum required, because of the low student/teacher ratio and the parent involvement. Every year, our third and sixth graders take the End of Grade tests and most score well above average."

Atlas has wonderful school clubs, activities and field trips. Recently, Atlas hosted local Children's Author, Seth Davey of Stories by Seth Davey. Seth loved reading to the children and the feeling was mutual. The children loved listening to Seth read, talking to Seth and asking questions about being an Author. 

Author, Seth Davey of Writings by Seth reads to Atlas students.

Feel free to call Atlas for a Tour or for more information at 919-623-2323. Email for information at The Atlas Kindergarten cut-off date is November 17.

You can follow Atlas International School on Facebook.

2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid - Smart Tech. Bold Thinking.

The 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid is truly Smart Tech and Bold Thinking.  Here she is on a beautiful and cold Winter day in Raleigh. We adore the CRÈME BRULEE MICA color. 

2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid

 It is so elegant. We love the space of the four doors.  The trunk was spacious for our weekend trip to Asheville, North Carolina. It's winter and we brought coats, and a small cooler.

Recently, we traveled to Asheville, North Carolina to the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love the mountains and it is a fun drive from Raleigh. We were excited to test drive the new 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid.

We were eager to try the Camry Hybrid.  It seated our family of our comfortably. Our growing teen sons said they had 'plenty of room.'  We were all very comfortable.  The classic look was so inviting.
We LOVED the CRÈME BRULEE MICA Camry!   It was so elegant and regal. It rode completely smoothly!

The Tech is really outstanding on the Camry Hybrid. We found this feature very cool and helpful. This is the mileage. It gives you the Best Gasoline mileage you are getting for the trip. And it compares to the trips you have taken. This was awesome! We got really great gas mileage! 

Here is the beautiful interior. It was very pretty and, again, spacious. It was easy to wipe clean because you know, coffee. Seriously, the interior stayed clean. With our tall family, the leg space was wonderful. That is a huge compliment coming from our two tall teen sons. 

The LED Headlights and DRL are beautiful. 

"Brighter light. More style. XLE’s available LED headlights help light up the road, and the black sport trim bezels surrounding XSE V6’s LED headlights add the right amount of attitude. And when the sun isn’t shining, available LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL) helps ensure you can’t be missed."

Check out the 2016 Toyota Camry Hybrid for your Family, Friends, Vacations - for your everyday. You'll love it and the durability and the reliability that Toyota is known for will keep you satisfied. 

Warmly, Carolina Mama
