Did I mention that last week I was able to finally perfect my apple crisp while the baby was sleeping? Since the beginning of the summer I've been on a quest for the ultimate apple crisp, which to me means big juicy chunks of apples, a little tart a little sweet, slightly soft with a little crunch, bathed in a thick sweet syrupy liquid topped with a buttery, nutty crumble, but not too crumbly.
Last month, I went on a 'ima buy all the fancy booze things online and make me a proper bar for the holidays' spree, and in my search, I found this Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. 17fl oz hand crafted in the South, bottle of the best dang tonic I have ever tasted. People, if you like gin and tonic, you need to order a bottle pronto, because it is a game changer.
I woke up craving guacamole. Yesterday for lunch, I shoveled this delicious guacamole with a pineapple into my mouth standing in the kitchen, trying to type an email from my phone. I added some pineapple, which gives it a subtle sweetness that is incredible. The pineapple and the garlic create this wonderful flavor combination, and then with a dash of lime and salt, it all really comes together.
