Nature’s Perfect Food . . .

Now in Spicy Hot!

Jan and I were on our way up to the Spring area about 10:30, with a quick stop for gas along the way. We were meeting up with long-time friend’s Debi and Ed Hurlburt at the El Palenque Mexican Restaurant, a favorite of ours.

This was another in a long line of monthly get-togethers that sometimes include Janice and Dave Evans, and we always look forward to them.

Jan tried something new this time, the Mazatlán, which is a Grilled Chicken Breast with Grilled Shrimp and covered in Monterey Cheese.

As opposed to what she usually gets, the Rancho Grande, which is a Grilled Chicken Breast with Grilled Shrimp, and covered in Monterey Cheese.

Don’t ask me. I don’t know either.

I got the Sampler platter, with quesadillas, taquitos, and nachos.

As usual we gabbed for more than 2 hours before we made the date for next month and headed home.

When my new Samsung S21 Ultra came with 5G capability, I was interested to see what kind of speed increase I would see. And so far I’ve not been really impressed.

This is what I get for 5G up in the Webster area.

Not really impressive.

I’ve heard that in some areas Verizon is running 5G on top of the 4G, resulting in slow speeds. But it lets them tout how many areas 5G is available, whether it’s fast or not. So I imagine that’s what’s happening here.

Now normally I’d be stuck with that, but I have an app on my phone called Samsung Band Selection that let’s me drop my phone back to 4G LTE. And this is what I get.

A big difference.

Now it’s a lot better up in Spring. This is what I got up there today.

So maybe it will eventually speed up down here.

I’ve always considered Peanut Butter nature’s perfect food. It has Protein, Carbs, Fat, and No Cholesterol.

However I like it too much. If I didn’t watch it, I think I could eat an entire jar at one time. And since it’s easier for me to resist temptation if I’m not tempted, I just don’t buy it very often.

But when I saw this online, my willpower crumbled and I had to order a jar of this.

Hot Mamba Peanut Butter

It’s an all-natural chunky peanut butter with tropical habanero, guajillo & ancho chiles; raw, organic cane sugar and a hint of sea salt.

I doubt it’s really hot, but I can always spice it up myself.

And even better (butter?), I ordered it today and it will be here tomorrow.

I’ll let you know.

Thought For The Day:

Taking naps sounds so childish. I prefer to call them horizontal life pauses.
