I had a very good bike ride yesterday morning. I took my bike back into the scrub land, and the weeds were ridiculously high – like more than six feet high. Some places would have been almost impassible by bike, but it rained on Monday and the sugar sand was not quite as soft as usual; this allowed me to maintain enough speed to plow my way through. The flying insects were a whole other problem, however. Normally when I ride back there there are large grasshoppers and other insects flying all over the place, but yesterday there were so many that I was constantly being hit by them, often in the face. I was breathing very hard, but was scared to open my mouth and take a deep breath! I know I would have consumed some unintentional protein.

Valentina Hot  Sauce

Valentina Hot Sauce

I forgot to mention something yesterday. When we all went out to eat Mexican food on Monday, the restaurant was out of my favorite Mexican hot sauce, Cholula. Instead they had a sauce I’d never seen before called Valentina Salsa Picante Extra Hot Sauce. At first I was disappointed, but then I tried it – awesome! Man, this stuff is REALLY good. I asked Lisa to see if she could find some at the Spanish market near where she works, and sure enough yesterday she came home with a bottle of it!

The sauce is low in sodium, zero calorie, very tasty and inexpensive. They offer the sauce in “Hot” and “Extra Hot”. Honestly, even the “extra hot” is not very hot, so don’t let that scare you off if you don’t like spicy. The flavor is why I love it, not the heat. While I’ll still use Cholula (of course!) I’ll be using this new sauce all the time now, too. If you can’t find it locally, you can order it from the JSF Amazon Mall here.

Time to get to work – thanks for stopping by!
