Okay, so some of you know I am a Saveur fan..every month I wait for the issue to arrive and relish my time reading it with a cup of coffee on the couch, curled up in my hammock, or just on the couch on my balcony…so this issue had some fun interesting stuff…need to give credit where credit is due…current cover…
Now, I am going to wet your appetite to read more…not to plug the mag, but because some of this stuff was fascinating AND fun to me…
Were you like me and thinking that the Reuben originated in NY? It didn’t…try Omaha!
Where do you think wine started? France? Italy? Nope, Armenia!
How did Nachos come to be and where did they get their name? Original nacho recipe below…it has evolved over the years…
Vanilla facts…who knew??? I sure didn’t…did you?
Okay…I knew there were a lot of varieties of tomatoes, but didn’t think THIS many and this looks SO inviting to me…I hope I get an invite in the mail next year…
Okay…how fun and interesting was that!!!
Now, we will be leaving the magazine…and onto to a few other random tidbits….

I found this astonishing….troubling until I rationalized that butternut squash is good for me, but I expect pumpkin and love, relish, treasure pumpkin…I think..don’t quote me..I think I found this in my weekly newsletter from Epicurious!
I know…it is heartwrenchly (I just made up that word) stunning…
On that note..enjoy the fall…it is fast approaching.
Until we meet again…
Enjoy! Eat, travel, laugh…often….
