So, here’s a weird thing that happened. I’ve misplaced a bottle of hot sauce around here. I know I had it last Sunday morning, because I doused my eggs in its spicy, spicy splendor, as I often do. Since then, I just… I don’t know where it is. How does one lose something like a bottle of Valentina?
I would just buy another bottle. I’ve never had any qualms about dropping my hard-earned cash on hot sauce. If I had the fridge space, I’d have a straight-up collector’s collection of hot sauce. The thing is, I know I will find it someplace like my medicine cabinet, or the freezer, or that weird drawer in the kitchen where I keep hot glue gun refills and electrical tape.
I should go check all those places right now. I’ll be right back.

I’m not sure if the super-extremely nice man at the Thai restaurant by the Home Depot near my place will ever see this post. But if he does, he needs to know that: This relationship? Whereby the mancompanion and I stop by once in a while for some amazing pumpkin curry? Rock. Solid. You’re not getting rid of us! I’m not trying to find a way to sidestep you and the restaurant so I can eat warm, coconut-y sweet, spicy goodness in my sweatpants.
In my mind at least, trying to recreate restaurant favorites is not about that at all. It’s fun, interesting and challenging, and (cheese alert) I swear, in some way it brings me closer to the food and those who make it. It makes me pay more attention to what I’m tasting.
