Spice of Life

Spice of Life
by Gabriel Constans

“They” say variety is the spice of life. This holiday drink has all the colors of falling leaves and a perfect blend of sweetness and spice to get you in the spirit. Dates, originally from the Middle East, are a good source of energy and a great sweet to use instead of candy.

The Invisible Moose

Taste The Invisible Moose

When you think of Sweden, you think of moose, and you’d expect to find them everywhere, wouldn’t you? Not necessarily. My wife and I went there on our honeymoon (many years ago) and stayed with our friends. They took us to well-known moose locations far and wide, including the king’s hunting grounds. They even took us to the zoo in a last, desperate attempt to prove there were indeed moose in Sweden. But the closest we came to seeing moose were the highway signs warning drivers to watch out for them.

You won’t have the same problem with The Invisible Moose. It has a unique taste that is unforgettable, and you can make it appear before your delighted eyes as often as you wish.

Drinking A Wiley Coyote

Wiley Coyote Smoothie

The coyote is a North American wild dog closely related to the wolf. Many native peoples have stories and beliefs surrounding the coyote, often referred to as the trickster who outsmarts both friend and foe. Coyotes dfend their chosen “territory,” howl in chorus, and mate for life. The Wiley Coyote may make you howl, too. As far as mating for life goes, that’s another story.
