The story behind the inventor of Sriracha. Funny that he mentions “We don’t make mayonnaise here” but Subway was testing a kinda Sriracha mayo combo. (ew)

Vanessa and I ate at Namaste in Rio Rancho. Along with the Indian food, we got some veggie momo. (Excellent name for a band.) It’s basically dumplings. For dessert, we got some rasmalai, a cream cheese-based dessert that reminded me of cheesecake.
Yasmine’s Meat Combo #1 and Veg Combo #1. Dump some of their hot sauce on the shawarma and it’s one of the best meals in Albuquerque!
Get the box o’ frozen yakisoba bowls at Costco. Dump in Sriracha, and you’re golden. Keep a bottle of Sriracha in the fridge at work, under your desk, in your closet, and taped to your back. You never know.
Went to Los Cuates the other day. With their chips, they serve a weird combination salsa that tastes like it has barbecue sauce in it. Some of their dishes come with regular salsa, so maybe they have some available.
We went to Saigon 2 for dinner. I got some iced Vietnamese Coffee Milk. It was pretty strong, but was good as long as you sip it. It wasn’t some insane flavor or anything…just kinda like strong coffee. Although kinda expensive at about a dollar an ounce or so.
We watched the Oliver! musical on Netflix. I looked up gruel. It’s basically Malt-O-Meal if you’ve ever had that…a thin hot wheat-based soupy stuff. Porridge is a thicker version of gruel. I like Malt-O-Meal with butter and sugar, but I’m guessing Oliver didn’t get any of those in the orphanage/workhouse. Come to think of it, my kids have never had malt-o-meal. Time to let them try it. And if they ask for more, they’ll have to talk to the administrators!
I’m eating a tamarind for the first time. I’ve had them in candies or other things, but never straight. On the outside, they look like a giant peanut. Inside, they’re covered with a kind of threading surrounding the fruity part, with hard seeds inside. You can’t eat most of it…only the thin fruity covering around the seeds. It has a kinda sweet/sour A1 fig newton taste. Not bad or anything, but I don’t know if I’d go out of my way to buy them.
