So last Saturday I decided to try out a new Stonewall Pesto Sauce that I bought a few weeks ago with some garlic bread. I was very surprised with how well it all came out!
Working in a tiny half sort-of kitchen making certain meals can be tricky because of the equipment I’m using but this is certainly one of those meals that quickly proved that good ingredients cook carefully can have great results even if you’re cooking on a $3 table-top stove and a hand-me-down toaster oven. That gorgeous garlic and rosemary bread was something we learned how to make when we took cooking classes at Cook & Relax, a wonderful relaxed environment with the great Chef Juan Manuel Rossi who also graced the pages of GuateDining
One day this week after work I picked up Susan and we hit up La Palace again and I finally got the Pasta Bolognese after a couple years. I remembered that it was very tasty and I was not disappointing. The sauce was meaty and delicious and tasted like it had been simmering for hours.
Since we were going to go to the beach for the long weekend I went ahead and took a day off to get things ready and stopped in for breakfast at Genova Coffe House. Now, I decided to go with something easy and decided for the asparagus and mushroom omlette.
Why was it a dismal choice? Because it just so happens that they had 2×1 on breakfast so I decided to take some Chilaquiles to my team. There I was confronted by the utterly depressing realization that they were FANTASTIC. I mean really outstanding.
So you live and you learn. After that I decided to finally go check out Nueva Deli, a little place hidden in z. 14 after seeing the fine folks at GuateDining talk about it’s glories. Here you can see the owner, Juan Alfonso Saravia, going over the extensive collection of 50 different kinds of beer.
This place has SO much goodness it took massive amounts of restraint not to take the whole store with me. I happen to be a fan of Kettle chips and decided to whisk away a bag of the Ranch flavored chips which just blew me away.
Arizona Ice Tea is something that’s come along quite a bit in recent years though it seems to have faded some from the places where I usually shop so it was a very pleasant surprise indeed to come across a whole row of the distinctive oversized cans.
These Aloe Vera drinks are apparently very popular concoction and my wife was saying that it was something that would be good for gastritis so I think I might have to swing by and pick up a few so we can try them. And some Kettle chips while I’m in the neighborhood.
Though we saw many, many more things which you can check out below one thing worth mentioning was the Goldschlager. Yup, that’s the one with gold flakes and you can see them swirling around in the bottle.
