Time for some honesty. Today was not my day. Everyone has to have a day like that once in a while. Well, I picked the short straw and today was my day. Not like anything horrible happened. Just nothing stellar. Kind of meh.
So I’m going to my happy place, which involves listening to this while I imagine I’m smelling this wafting through the air, eating one of these and waiting in line to ride this. So good . . . if only.
As I’ve mentioned previously, when Nathan got home from Mexico and we started dating again, we ate a lot of Mexican food. Tacos and sopes and tacos and tacos, remember? Yes, all very delicious. Well one night, to go along with all this Mexican food, Nathan told me he wanted to “make some water”. Hmmm. Ok. I thought water came “made”, but, yeah sure, let’s go for it. And that’s when my eyes were opened to the wonderful world of aguas frescas.
I’m going to keep this fairly simple because these almonds are fairly simple. They don’t really need my fancy words to talk them up to convince you to make them. I figure they do this all on their own with that beautifully bronzed coating of crispy caramel you see up there. You can hear them crunch just by looking at the picture!!
