Day 188—It Had Me at Hello

The Farmers’ Market at Mahany Park by my gym is always a tempting destination after Thursday’s Pilates class and I went there this morning intending to replenish my depleted supply of The Crazy Gringo Taco Wagon Salsa that I first tasted when the market opened there in early June. The Crazy Gringo is the third stall but on my way past the first stall, Snow’s Citrus Court from Newcastle, my eye caught sight of a stack of jars filled with mandarin orange dark chocolate sauce. I stopped, oohed, drooled, tasted, and, as Renée told Tom in “Jerry Maguire,” it “had me at hello.” Wow! They told me it keeps 18 months in the refrigerator. I’m wondering if it will last through the day! I did manage to get my salsa (regular plus tomatillo and habanero) and some nectarines, but clearly the highlight of my visit was the mandarin chocolate sauce.
