Quitos. I'd never heard of these and, bluntly, if they were not on sale at Meijer I would not have tried them. As a snack they're so-so: some sort of corn meal crispy thing, from Mexico I believe. But they're hot, bloody hot, and so long as they're cheap they're my new favorite snack.

I bought them the last time they were $1 at Meijer. Yep, muy picoso.
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

If that means "as hot as shit" then I agree, or should I say "agree-o." Seventy-nine cents at Meijer, btw.

If you like heat try this stuff if you haven't already:

Walmart has it in the small Mexican section but not by the rest of the hot sauce, maybe Meijer is the same. 9,000 Scoville Heat Units where Frank's Red Hot is only 450. Hottest shit at the grocery store but I've grown immune to it.

We have that in the 'fridge at home but it's definitely not a daily-driver for hot-sauce needs.

I garden, not well, but I do and habanero peppers make the list every few years. I'm not a sissy when it comes to heat, but there's something about these and the hot banana peppers that make them almost inedible when taken right from the plant. But I've found that when finely chopped they add nicely to a meatless chilli.

Reporting back from brunch at Marais. Outstanding! I was here for dinner a few weeks back. If you are able, I highly recommend making a reservation.
Hmmmm....maybe I should be a large map of metro Detroit for on my wall, so I better know the relationship of my city and the suburbs. - Supersport

Bought a 12-pack of Dr Faygo. The Dr Pepper generics are usually OK, sometimes even good and occasionally better than the real thing, but this shit is crap (note that I used two synonyms for excrement to describe it).

Try Mr Faygo -- the Mr Pibb knockoff that is a knockoff of Dr Pepper. Much better.
I used to be with it, but then they changed what 'it' was. Now, what I'm with isn't 'it,' and what's 'it' seems weird and scary.

Or next time your at Wal-Mart, pick up some Dr. Thunder. It is best described as a knock off of animal urine.

Yuengling Black and Tan pairs nicely with breakfast of eggs, hash browns, biscuits (made from scratch by me), and sausage links

Probably would pair well with Rice Krispies, too; snap, crackle, burp

Just got done having dinner at Christine's in Ferndale (tiny hole in the wall on 9 Mile and Hilton). Had the BEST crushed lentil soup I have ever had; tangy and redolent of cumin and other middle Eastern spices with just enough heat to make it interesting. Also had delicious Beef Burgundy over noodles; but the soup was the meal. Even bought an extra bowl for tomorrow's dinner.
This is about the 5th time I've eaten there and never have I had a bad or even approaching "iffy" meal; everything there has been great. Their Burrito Bomb IS the bomb.
And the prices are way decent. 10.50 for the Burgundy; vegetarian Bomb is 5 bucks, more if you add meat. They also run a Groupon for $11 for $20 worth of food.

The building I used to work at in Birmingham used to have a small deli on the first floor run by an older (late 60's) couple. Her crushed lentil soup was off the hook! Had never had it before and hers hooked me. I may have to go try it out as most of the places I frequent usually have chicken noodle, lemon rice, and broccoli cheese...

I don't think they have it daily so call ahead. Another place that has a very fine crushed lentil soup is 2booli on Rochester and Big Beaver in that strip mall with Nordstrom Rack. Their pita bread is to die for also, so the two together are a bit of heaven. Good Shawarma too.

Took Brunette 1.0 to Rose's on Jefferson for breakfast yesterday. We got lucky and got a table right away and it wasn't bad ... $20 for both of us and the food was very good.

The place is like you died and woke up in hipster heaven, but they've got green money, too. An open business is better than a vacant building by the side of the road.
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.
