I was sent a few bags of Deano's Jalapeno chips this weekend. I got Ranch, Sea Salt, and Cheddar. I tried a few of each. I have to admit I don't normally like spicy things but it was good. The ranch was my favorite. It has a really hot aftertaste but it was worth it. These chips are not for wimps! I tried them alone at first and ended up drinking a bunch of milk to keep my mouth from catching on fire! Then I tried the ranch with some chicken and it was so good that I couldn't stop eating it, even though it was burning my mouth. Delicious! Check out their site: http://www.deanosjalapenos.com/
So I had my first ever fried twinkie last week. I swear, it was the best dessert I have ever had. It came with vanilla ice cream and 3 twinkies. I was skeptical but I had heard so many things that I knew when I saw it, I was getting it. I took my first bite and was amazed. It tasted like what I imagine the baby of a twinkie and a funnel cake would taste like. I am telling you, if you ever have the chance to have one, take it.If you take a bite with the ice cream it gives it a dynamic creamy texture. It was amazing.
During the winter, restaurants are known for making new and holiday themed food or drinks. This year I thought I would try one of them.
I went to McDonald's today and got one of their Holiday Pies in Vanilla. I had two friends who had given me two completely different reactions so I thought I would try it myself.
In a festive confetti looking outside was a vanilla cream. The vanilla was less than good. Not horrible but still not quite as yummy as I would have hoped. The outside was very bland and not sweet at all. It was also flaking and not soft at all.
I took 3 bites and offered it to a friend who also denied it. I ended up throwing half of it away and I will never be trying one of them again. It may not have been bad tasting but it had no taste at all.
I went grocery shopping with a friend last week. We got to discussing his Church Mission that he went on for 2 years and about what they ate. The church had a low budget for food so there was a lot of ramen being eaten. My friend then told me about this interesting idea that they had for making it less bland and ordinary.
They took a can of Cream of Chicken soup and mixed it with a small scoop of mayonnaise and hot sauce. They they put this "sauce" on top of cooked Ramen.
It was delicious! The sauce was so thick and creamy. I put 4 Mild Del Taco hot sauce packets just to give it a zing but you can add as much or as hot of salsa you want. It was so filling I couldn't even finish my bowl but it was so good, I wanted to.
This had to be one of the cheapest meals I have ever made too! And so easy. Cook and prep time was less than 5 minutes altogether.
This was surely the oddest meal I have ever concocted but I know I will be having it again and again.
