I'm feeling much better these days and am almost fully recovered from the nasty flu I had.
And to what do I credit this miraculous recovery? Well, all the normal things like lots of water and rest... but also a large helping of the food of the gods: guacamole. It was the Super Bowl after all, so I whipped up a batch of my famous guac for me and all my friends to devour. It could just be coincidental timing, but after eating copious amounts of the green goodness, I woke up today feeling more like myself than I have in a long while. Thank you guacamole.
Also on my Super Bowl plate were some Gardein buffalo wings and Organicville Ranch. To be honest, I was not impressed with the wings. They had too much vinegary heat and not enough sweet to balance it out. The ranch, on the other hand, was pretty dang good. I will definitely use the leftovers on some salads this week.
For dessert, I decided to try yet another sugar free ice cream. This time around it was cashew and agave-based Freezees 'Fudgee Fudge'. For me, personally, this would have to have a LOT more deep chocolate flavor for the word "fudge" to be appropriate. That being said, it had a decent enough texture and taste. I don't think I'd buy it again, but it wasn't horrible either. How's that for a ringing endorsement? :)
In any case, this is shaping up to be a busy week, but one that will end with a delightful long weekend in Napa full of good food and wine, including a trip on the wine train and a visit to Ubuntu for Valentine's Day. A full report soon to follow. Have a great week everyone!
