Random Bites in August
Why do vodka companies feel the need to create all these new flavors? Can't we just leave vodka alone?
Recently tried (only because the bartender was kind enough to let us sample it):
Marshmallow flavored vodka shots with a head of whipped cream (from the can, of course). If you like sweet, then this is for you.
We are neighbors with "Mr. Googootz" at the Militant Garden, whom I have still not met to this day.
He must come out to tend to his garden before 8 a.m. His cucuzza squash is obscene.
Each one must weigh 30 lbs.
I am waiting for one to accidentally drop on the ground so I can make that yummy giambotta again! (I used my foot to show you the actual size of one of them).
I had the pleasure of sampling Lesser Evil Snacks.
Delicious kettle corn and krinkle sticks made with all natural ingredients, therefore are naturally lower in fat and calories.
The black and white kettlecorn with cocoa is absolutely evil, I couldn't stop eating them!
August pizza update:
Amazing late summer farm pie at Arturo's in Maplewood. Heirloom NJ squash, fresh mozzarella w/ NJ beans and Parmigiano Reggiano.
I have never wanted a convertible before, but when I saw this beauty on the Garden State Parkway, it made me think twice!
Sadly, summer is almost over, and my heirloom tomato sandwiches swiped with Hellman's on wheat toast will just be a faded memory until next year.
Our perennial garden is going crazy at the end of the season.
The hyssop (also known as "agastache") is a butterfly magnet.
I swear there are 30 Monarch butterflies on the plant at one time. It's a beautiful site.
Have a Happy & Safe Labor Day weekend!
