My Husband Really Knows His Foodie Wife

My sweet hubby finally got home from his trip and he came bearing the yummiest gifts!

Look at these olives! They are amazing! Vince was lucky enough to get to visit Jungle Jim's in the Cincinnati area on his last trip. And, yes, I have to say I'm a little jealous. He said it was the Disneyland of food. How awesome would that be? The last time I was there it was a fruit stand. We won't talk about how long ago that was.

I am loving these olives! And aren't they gorgeous?!

He also brought home some new bbq sauce, compliments of my friend Paula (thank you, Paula!!). Can't wait to try this! It's a vinegar-based sauce made in North Carolina for the Red, Hot & Blue restaurants which sounds great, but the best part of this sauce is the name: Hoochie Coochie sauce. Gotta love that!

And he found one of my all-time fave bbq sauces: Chicken 'N' Ribs. I can't say it's some fancy sauce, but I grew up with it and it has a special place in my heart. I use this sauce on tons of stuff! I can't find it where we live though so we always try to pick some up when we're in the Kentucky/Ohio area.
And finally, he brought home....Cheddar Jalapeno Cheetos!!! Oh.My.Goodness. These are so good! I have had a long love affair with Cheetos and now they've taken it up a notch:) We love our spicy around here and these hit the spot!

Isn't my husband the sweetest thing? He just gets me!

I would never have guessed those were olives. LOL Apparently I'm olive illiterate. They look so pretty, and I don't even like olives.

My parents love those Cheetohs. I may have to try them sometime.

Wow - I've NEVER seen olives like that before. They're slightly different than the kind that come in a jar. :) That's sweet that your hubby knew just what to get you!
