The stuff aint half bad either.

I personally consider it one of those flavorless, "I don't want to taste it in my cocktail" vodkas. I'll take Tito's over just about any other vodka, and it's usually cheaper too!

Titos is a good Texas vodka.
SKYY is alcohol with no flavor but the filtration and distilling process leaves no bad components of the alcohol.
Bad hangovers come from bad alcohol.

Potters is good budget vodka that is triple distilled and does not smell and taste like rubbing alcohol. It is a top selling alcohol at least locally.

There are so many alcohols that I just won't drink. I'm the odd man who if 'I had to' drink a beer or a wine cooler - I'd choose the wine cooler.

Yes, and also dirty beer taps.

I've been on a whiskey kick lately. I think Crown Royal Apple is my favorite. But Evan Williams Honey is half the price and almost as good.

I am going to finish off the tamales today for lunch and look forward to stocking up on my next Farmers Market visit. But I have loved the Pablano and cheese ones.

We have a place called Grandma's Tamales around here which is very good. She has to usual kinds chicken and beef, but she also has jalapeno and cream cheese which are to die for. This coming from someone who doesn't care for "hot" spicy foods very often. Tamales freeze very well. Just wrap the amount you want in some foil and place in a ziploc bag. They will be good for a month or two in there. and placed in the refrigerator to thaw makes them perfect.

I had a can of whole berry cranberry sauce that needed to be used. I bought a 32 oz. container of plain yogurt and mixed them together. If you like yogurt and cranberries - it tastes very good mixed together.

Rock, the ones I bought came frozen (6 per bag) and I thawed them in the fridge. To heat up I wrap a Couple in a wet paper towel and Nuke them for 1:30m. They come out hot and steamy. Apparently they own and operate a tamale restuarant near Springfield, MO. Anyway, I'm hooked.

Salt, next time you are using a can of cranberries, sub a tablespoon or 3 of the cranberry sauce, smooth or whole berry, for the raspberry in a vinaigrette - really good on a green salad or a beans and greens salad especially.

Skillet Chicken and Dumplings. I've never made this recipe but it looks good and I have everything on hand to make it.

Even from someone (Me) who doesn't care for chicken and dumplings - that looks good.
