Do you like spicy food? I am not a fan. I generally will pass on anything spicy. TJ loves spicy things, the spicier the better. One his favorite snacks is tortillas and salsa. Now I don’t mind salsa. I’ve always bought the mild and been quite content with it. He’s always said it needed to be spicier. Well this week he got his wish. I found giant jars of salsa on sale and grabbed one. This was a brand I wasn’t familiar with and the jar was about three to four times the size of the jarred salsa that we usually have. I noticed that it said medium on it but wasn’t too worried, since the mild has always been extremely mild and tasty. Mistake. This salsa was super spicy! I couldn’t even finish what was in my mouth. RB, who likes spicy foods, also thought it was very spicy. TJ? He thought it was just right. I checked the jar, wanting to see what the label said. It tasted so spicy and authentic that I half expected to see a Mexico manufacturing company, which is why I was surprised to see that the salsa had been made right here in the US. What is your favorite kind of salsa?

I love rock music, tech, travel and food. And cheesecake. I HATE the misuse of the word retarded. I take it personally and find it very offensive. Did I mention that I love cheesecake?
