Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Oh. Yeah.

It's that time. Time for a refill, in a big way.

As you can see, my little 18 oz. bottle of garlic chili sauce that we popped open last week is about done with. Fortunately, my wife made a recent trip to the Asian Market again.

The goodness, it burns.

Asian markets FTW: my BF buys the giant beef loins for $40, then butchers it (literally) into about six filet mignons. (Filets mignon?) Such an amazing deal.

Plus you can get the giant tubs of seasoned nori and lychee gummies. Breakfast of champions.

Yep, that is the GOOD stuff! :-) Now get the nuc mam and you've got the whole package... :-)

Matt, my local Wal-Mart carries that for about 3 bucks a bottle. :)

I save the trips (across town) to the Asian Market for Kim-chee.

Not in the Gallon size, they don't.

I simply marvel at all that pepper in one jug, and the ounce-per-ounce value.

Besides, a trip to Wal*Mart is a trip to Hell on earth.

Is this the chili sauce with garlic or the plain chili sauce sans garlic... I like the sans garlic better, fuller flavor and even HOTTER!

I don't feel the need for seeing if I can win the hot sauce arms race, and My handshake is on the limp side of firm, I don't feel the need to drive someone to their knees.

To someone who commented on my "Wimpy Handshake" I replied "I've nothing to prove..."

Buddy, this is the stuff that is about 2/3 chili paste to 1/3 garlic. It is a little milder, but I like the flavor better. We just defrosted a quart of the pure stuff last night. We tend to part out the gallons into quart jars for freezing, so that we don't run dry.

John, I'm with you on the Pepper Arms Race. There's always someone who can take hotter, and there's no prize for winning beyond pain now and pain later, so why bother trying? That's not fun. I like peppers, though, and I have a fairly wide sweet spot for the amount of heat that I like. I just don't like BLAND.

As for handshakes, I don't like a limp handshake, but I roll my eyes when people give me a bonecrusher. Is it because I'm a big guy that they do that? Or do they do it to everyone? How... insecure.

aw, MAN THAT STUFF IS SO DAMN GOOD. Since I moved to Sweden, there's NOTHING.

I thought it would be, like, more international here, but the opposite is true. In Memphis (my hometown)there are vietnamese, korean, 'asian', indian, middle eastern markets all about. And a lot of this stuff is sold in regular stores too.

HERE? OH no no no

I'm going to have to start ordering the stuff online. I would make it, but, they don't even have a reasonable supply or variety of chili peppers here!! Just a handful of some from spain.
