The days surely don't feel like autumn, I'm talking low 80's (26C) during the daytime. Oh well, I shouldn't grumble, at least there is no humidity.
Since there isn't much happening in my kitchen, I thought I'd share with you some new things I came upon.
Haagen Dazs came out with 2 limited edition flavors--Bitter Caramel and Noisette Chocolat. The Bitter caramel was smooth and creamy, not sure why they called it bitter because it wasn't. The other flavor was Noisette Chocolat, a hazelnut ice cream swirled with dark chocolate ice cream. Both were delicious.
In the beer department, Kirin came out with a stout. It wasn't smokey in taste, but it was very dark and easy to drink.
And to round everything out, there was Koshu grapes. These were a let down--not sweet at all. Plus the skins were tough and bitter and there were tons of seeds.
Oh, well, 3 out of 4 isn't so bad. Hope your week is going well.
