One of the joys of staying in hotels is finding out what the cable lineup is. Sometimes I am lucky and get dozens of channels; othertimes, only enough to count on both hands. On my current deployment to North Little Rock, I am blessed with such great channels as Animal Planet, Food Network, Discovery, and truTV.
My favorite is Food Network. Where else can I watch people making food all day long and dream of doing it? I would like to become a chef someday. I have aspirations of becoming a whiz at soups, breads, and salsas.
I like to consider myself a salsa afficianado. I have tasted my fare share throughout the years, and revel in learning more about them and discovering more types and ingredients. Some of my favorites:
Dueling Coyote Salsa: http://duelingcoyotessalsa.vpweb.com/
Julio's Corn Tortilla Chips (and salsa): http://www.julioschips.com/index.html
Pace Salsa (the new lineup, not the picante varieties): http://www.pacefoods.com/products.aspx
