Yesterday, the chilly air and cloudy sky seemed to whisper, “Matzo ball soup from D.Z. Akins.” But, for the first time, the idea of Jewish penicillin did not seem as warmth inducing as it always had. I wasn’t convinced it would satisfy my craving for comfort. As David waited by the door, I rushed back to the kitchen, filled a small plastic container with some of my freshly ground dried hot peppers, and tucked it into my purse. At the restaurant, the servers walking by seemed to take special interest in my bowl, which had somehow turned red. It was the best matzo ball soup ever.

Dude. You shoulda used "Hot Sauce" by Thomas Dolby and George Clinton for the soundtrack.

Or "My Baby's Got Sauce" by G Love and Special Sauce... but the words in the background make it hard to hear the narration. Still, you've got me craving both the music and the yummy hot stuff. ;)

I make great salsa's. For Cinco de Mayo I plan on bringing several types of homemade salsa's into my office to share with my coworkers.
