Lunch: Thursday, January 3, 2019

So, it is not unusual for my lovely wife to pack up leftovers, for my lunch at work, from dinner the night before, and when it is her potato and chicken yellow curry with jasmine rice, I don’t complain at all, as it is one of my favorite things to eat. Yes, it does start with a prepared yellow curry sauce, my current favorite, Mae Ploy Thai Yellow Curry Sauce, but she then spices it up with either Thai chili peppers, habaneros or one of the other varieties that we have begun growing at the house. I highly recommend this one if you don’t have time to make your own yellow curry sauce from scratch. It is also vegetarian before you add whatever ingredients you want, it is useful for vegetarian curries, which the wife often makes me when I am dieting. Either way the flavor is excellent and I look forward to this meal very much, for lunch or dinner. Even my youngest child loves this one.

Glaceau Smartwater Review

SmartWaterDate Purchased:  January 3, 2015

Place Purchased:  Stripes

Purchase Price:  $2.20

I’ve always had a kind of love-hate relationship with bottled water, especially the higher price varieties.  It’s not that I consider them bad products in and of themselves, but I know too much to be comfortable with the way they are labeled and marketed.  For instance, the one bottled in my home town, Everest.  Yes, it brings to mind the name sake mountain and so forth, but it is bottled from the municipal water supply of my hometown, Corpus Christi, Texas, a couple of hours north of Mexico and not a mountain in sight.  Not to mention the water out of that municipal system is nothing special.

So having said that, I don’t know how much truth goes on label-wise, or if any of the long winded story about how it created is actually true, I do like the Glaceau Smartwater product put forth by the Cocoa Cola Company.  I like the mouth feel and taste of the water over most other water products I’ve tried, although I do think it is wildly overpriced.  I consider it one of my top three bottled waters and thus recommend it if you can get past the price.
