I’m no connesuir of hot sauce, but I like to keep a bottle around for food-related emergencies. Like when I’m eating pupusas or my guacomole needs a little kick. So when my last bottle was taken out by a horiffic refrigerator door incident, I mosied down the hot-sauce related aisle of my local grocery store. I stopped and pondered for a bit, and then I moved in on the old standard, Cholula. I don’t know if you’ve had it, but it’s pretty good – not too spicy, and flavorful. Well, much to my surprise, sitting right there next to my target was a bottle of Cholula “Chile Garlic” hot sauce. I, of course, immediately bought it. It is five times as delicious as you might think, and I’m now finding excuses to put it on pretty much everything I eat. It’s full of garlic with a little chile kick. But mostly garlic. Did I mention that I love garlic?

This patterened nylon belt is out of this world! Hah. Horrid puns aside, if you’re adverse to wearing bright colors in your shirts or pants, accesories are always a nice way to add some interest to your outfit.

It may be a bit late in the snow season, but there’s still time to hit the slopes with these HEATED snowboard pants. That’s right, folks. Flip a switch on the rechargeable battery pack and your pants are warmed up. Supposedly they’re also well ventilated, but I know I get overheated as it is cruising (ass over heels) down the slopes. Not to say that I don’t totally want a pair.
