What a scorcher!!! Holy Moly, we were HOT HOT HOT here. But hey it was a beautiful weekend so what’s there to complain about right! Well, except that Costco wasn’t open on Monday so, that kinda sucked a bit. But hey, here we are again with another big ‘ol list of sales etc. and My gosh… SNOWSUITS! There you go folks, hot and humid in July and we have snowsuits. I know people have been asking about them, and our location finally got them out.
Britta Filters are on sale this week and as we use a Britta I grabbed them obviously, at $7.00 off you can’t go wrong? Ziplock freezer bags as well are on sale and I’m sure you all know how much I love portioning and freezing things so again… Can’t go wrong.
Avocado oil is still on sale for a great price, I grabbed some a few weeks ago (before it was on sale) and love it!
Clamato Juice is on sale as well still and I love me a spicy Caesar from time to time (as most Canadians do). Anyone have a favorite recipe? I’m pretty staightforward with mine. Rim a glass with celery salt, 1 1/2 -2 oz. of vodka, as many dashes of Tabasco and worcestershire as you can handle, some of the spicy brine from a jar of pepperoncini peppers (and use one as a garnish as well) a little spoon of horseradish, then top with Clamato juice and grind some black pepper on top. Delightful! I know people are divided on the rimming of the glass, should you use celery salt? (yes) or some people use Montreal steak spice. I’m ok with that I guess, But I find the celery salt is a pretty defining feature for me. Obviously I’ve seen a thousand different garnishes ranging from a simple lime, to the classic celery stick and lemon, to things as crazy as little cheeseburger sliders and battered & fried shrimp. I’m for all of those.
Cute right? and again, who doesn’t like Caesars??? Well, actually I know a few of ’em. Most of us have a favorite cocktail or two though, (unless you don’t drink of course, which is great too!) Dirty vodka Martinis also top my list, it’s gotta be done just right though! a tiny splash of dry vermouth, a splash (not too big) of olive brine shaken and strained so just a few of the little ice shards get into the glass garnished with 3 olives (though anywhere from 2-5 will do). It’s not really a weekend brunch kind of cocktail… More of a night time affair I suppose. I’d go for one right now but I think it’s too close to bed time to be mixing cocktails wouldn’t you agree? (at least for a Tuesday. Friday and Saturday are a different story)
Ok, gettin’ thirsty now… Time to stop.
Well I hope that everyone has a great week, and gets some summery activities going while the weather is steamy!
Stay Hydrated and safe!
See everyone next Monday!
