Overheard at the water cooler this Valentine’s Day morn.
Receptionist: Hot plans tonight?
Single Sarah: Oh, yeah. Me, Matthew Morrison, and takeout.
R: Spice it up with Zukali.
R: Think hot, Mexican, and totally doable.
SS: Keep talking.
R: More like tasting. It’s a new gourmet toppings label out of McKinney that makes small-batch salsa and fire-roasted poblanos and jalapenos. Owner Cesar Sanchez is a real mix artist. His jalapenos, for example, are marinated in a blend of soy sauce, lime juice, and spices. They go great on Mexican bites, of course, but they give a kick to burgers, fish, and hot dogs, too.
SS: Oh, I can glee it now.
