    Srirachapocalypse Averted

    CULINARY DISASTER DERAILED
    Resumed Production Guarenteed
    texas wants the rooster
    NO NEED TO HOARD THIS ANYMORE - BUT - BUY SOME NOW
    -------
    .. Last October, [LINK 1,] there was near panic in some well educated culinary circles as word spread that the Irwindale, (Rosemead,) California plant of HUY FONG FOODS came under fire by a citizen lawsuit and health concerns.
    .. For a large segment of the culinary cognoscenti there is really just one chili sauce and it is the one with the rooster and the green pour top. It fits with many foods and many palates and is moving from a prime place in the cuisine of S. E. Asia and into the Mexican arena with lightning speed.
    .. The very thought of losing this fine condiment was so pervasive in California that it was one of the top news stories in that state, [LINK 2.] When it was announced that limited production would resume there was a giant flood of traffic on TWITTER, [LINK 3.] Woeful tales were turned to cheers and the Boston Globe saw fit to recall it's doomsday predictions, [LINK 4.]
    .. The impending disaster of no chili sauce brought an official invitation from Republican Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba who suggested that the tax advantages and lax food regulations in Texas would be to the benefit of Huy Fong Foods, [LINK 5.]
    .. As recently as yesterday the celebrations continued in Los Angeles with free giveaways of bottles of the red goo, [LINK 6.]
    .. This is not just a "foodie" phenomena. It's an indicator of the depth of American Culture. Huy Fong Foods does not advertise. They do not sell chili sauce with sex. You won't see a commercial at the Super Bowl. My, my, my.
    .. Should you care to see how this lovely sauce is made check out this LINK 7. The animations are from a documentary about the search for SRIRACHA.

    .. Midges between the lakes = 16" to 22" trout. Pressure light. Neighbors having way too much fun.
    .. Ice fishers scoring huge fish on Hebgen Reservoir in advance of the big tournament. Kids day on the ice was a big success and there were many fish caught by the little fishers as well as the big folks.
