Decided to do a quick entry about two little guilty pleasures that I have recently discovered. I don't really feel guilty about them. ;P The first is discovering one of my very favorite types of cookies, which I have not had since moving here 14 years ago! These 'Little Dutch Boy' butter cookies. I used to get them regularly at Stater Bros. in California and after a few years of searching decided that Arizona must be under some awful anti Dutch cookie law. Well around the Holidays I happened into a 'day old' bread store of all places, and there they were! (insert angel song and harps) So now I can eat them until I balloon up to a ridiculous weight. Only problem I see.... I had only eaten one cookie since buying these and when I took this picture, there were about 3 more gone. Hmmmm, apparently Jesse likes them too.
The second discovery is this wine from Chile... Brand: Gato Negro (black cat) Type: Carmenere (? never heard of this before). I only drink an occasional glass of red wine, usually Cabernet or Merlot... and most taste crummy after half a glass. This stuff is yummy all the way through. ;O) Here's what the back of the bottle says about it; "Colour: intense violet with blackish tones, very dark. Aroma: spices, mild green pepper, some tobacco, very fruity and fresh Taste: a pleasant wine, ample, velvety medium bodied, with a pleasing finish, a very different wine capable of surprising the consumer with its first impression." It's all true! A red wine with out any bitterness, but not overly sweet. It's delish....and I paid less than $4 for it at Sprouts. Very Nice! If I catch Jesse dipping into this, he'll be in a world of hurt. ;o)
