I had a rough night last night. Or rather, a rough morning. There is only one part of the bedroom where the sun gets directly into the room. Guess whether or not that place was right where I was sleeping? Further, the baby was co-sleeping, making movement more difficult. The biggest problem, though, was the pillows.

We’d been riding too long on our old pillows, and I saw these nice and fluffy ones for cheap at Walmart. Well, you get what you pay for when it comes to pillows. They’re just dreadful, and I am a very pillow-dependent sleeper. I’m going to find the old pancake pillows and double-stack them until I can get some good pillows.

Instead of just ragging on Walmart, though, let me share a secret with you: They make some of the best salsa out there. Ordinarily, I go with Mrs. Renfro’s, which I hardily recommend if you like spicy salsa. In particular, their Green Salsa is quite good and easy to find. Their Hot Salsa and Habanero are also good, though the latter borders on being too hot (and I like it hot). the Ghost Pepper variety is too hot by any standard.

But if you like a milder, more flavorful salsa, it doesn’t get much better than World Table, one of Walmart’s house brands. In particular, their Roasted Salsa Verde and Roasted Tomato Chipotle salsas are exceptionally good. Not just for house brand salsa, or Walmart salsa, but compared to just about any bottled salsa out there.

    It’s entirely possible that Mrs. Renfro’s makes World Table.

    Possible, I suppose, but not likely. Different focuses. Very different flavors.

    I noticed that you said “hardily recommend” instead of “heartily recommend.” I’m not pointing this out to be a jerk. Rather, I’ve been reading your posts for at least five years and this is the first time I’ve ever seen anything that could be considered a typo. There may have been others, but i’m usually pretty good at catching things like that. You are, if nothing else, very solid at proofing your own work. I am amazed that, in over five years, i’ve never noticed a typo before. that’s remarkable. well done, will!
