Sauza 901 Tasting {#sponsor product review}


A little while back I was contacted by some media folks who offered me a bottle of Sauza 901.*

Why not?

I mentioned it to some friends on our last camping trip in September and they all had the same question: Where is it?

Whoops. I hadn't brought it.

So, for our annual Halloween camping trip last weekend, I packed the bottle, some skull shot glasses - that seemed festive -, organic limes, and some Himalaya salt.

I had many willing tasters around the campfire that evening. Thanks, guys and gals!

About Sauza 901...
At first I thought this might be just another celebrity endorsement...and typically I steer clear of those. However, it appears Justin Timberlake traveled to Jalisco, Mexico and actually took an active role in creating his own tequila several years ago. This triple-distilled tequila is the result. Its name: 901 refers to his hometown area code in Memphis. That's kind of a nice detail.


Tasting...
I didn't muddle it up with too many other flavors and steered clear of making cocktails. I wanted to taste it mostly pure. So, I served it with just some salt and lime. And I was delighted. Sauza 901 is super smooth with light spice and some smoky and herbaceous notes.

At first I thought that I would just taste a little for the review and end up cooking with the rest. But I just might enjoy the entire bottle with friends and skip the tequila shrimp. Salud!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
