Happy New Year! Hope everyone had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday season. Today’s song of the day is simply amazing and is a shout out to the spaghetti westerns of yesteryear: For a Few Dollars More by Ennio Morricone.
I can’t resist the urge to include a Top 100 Westerns of all Time list. For those of you who know me, you’ll know that McLintock!, Big Jake, Once Upon a Time in the West, The Man with No Name series, True Grit (2010), 3:10 to Yuma (2007), The Outlaw Josey Wales, The Searchers, Stagecoach, Red River, Rio Bravo, and The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance are the very best. Although these are in no particular order and are all VERY worth your time, some are slightly better than others, depending on your mood.
I also can’t resist plugging two hot sauces that recently came across my plate (read into that as you wish). The first is Tropical Pepper Co.’s Scotch Bonnet Caribbean Pepper Sauce and it’s positively delightful on the palate. A quick google search didn’t turn up any results for the scoville score but it’s very, very weak but compensates in taste where it lacks in heat. Photo below.
Expect to finish this bottle in a matter of days if you’re like me and put it on everything. The next hot sauce has a bit more heat to it and it’s also from our friends at Tropical Pepper Co. – it’s their Special Edition XXXXtra Hot Habanero Pepper Sauce. A bit more heat and will take you a bit longer to finish. This has less of the tangy Caribbean taste of the former but definitely packs in the taste of habanero. Again, no scoville score…but you won’t be able to butt chug this one like the Scotch Bonnet.
Now if you’ll please excuse me, I’m off to the bathroom to trim down my face sweater to match The Duke’s stache in She Wore a Yellow Ribbon. I may also paint the porcelain but only after I paint my wagon.
