Tasting Texas

Years ago, when my husband traveled often for business, he would pick one item that the state was known for and make a personal quest to find "the best of".  What was fun for me, were the goodies that he would share upon his return.  He's found amazing barbeque sauces, dry rubs, wines and clam chowders in his travels.  With one of his visits to Texas he discovered a great salsa, Fire Tomatillo Salsa Verde, and brought some home to share.  (yeah, me!)

His business hasn't required much travel lately so I've found a website that showcases some of his favorites and will gladly ship them our way, Republic of Texas Foods.  They have the salsa we both loved along with some other spicy items I'll leave just for him.  (I'm not a real zippy-food gal.)

If you have a sweet tooth they carry an amazing Double-Dipped Milk or White Chocolate Oreo cookie. Oh-my-goodness gracious.  Pass me another while I make time for more leg lifts.  These cookies are so worth the extra time on the treadmill.  And if you want a fun taste experience, try the Candied Jalapenos salsa.  Add this to cream cheese and it's pretty darn good.  The sweetness cuts the hotness of the Jalapenos, so it's more of a fun taste bud experience than pain.  (As I said, I'm not one for the hot, zippy foods.)

Since I'm talking about Texas here, if you are looking for a Mexican restaurant Dallas area, you might want to try Mattito's restaurant.  He remembers it was pretty wild looking and they had a great Tex-Mex.  Living in the Pacific Northwest we don't have much in that food category and he really enjoyed it.

So there you have it.  If you're in the mood for some Texas flavor check-out the website, Republic of Texas.  I found some tasty reminders for my husband.  And some very-worth-the-treadmill-time cookies for me.
