Food on the Tube

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:
Julio's Corn Tortilla Chips (and salsa):
Pace Salsa (the new lineup, not the picante varieties):
