You will that I was on the hunt for Costa Rican vanilla a couple weeks ago. I gave up on the search when I could only find La Vencedora, a Mexican brand.
Well it arrived today. I opened the 1 liter bottle and took a whiff. It was sublime. It was perfect – it was the vanilla I enjoyed in New Orleans. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that it’s the right vanilla.
First thing tomorrow morning I’m going to make myself a heaping plate of french toast. I would have it tonight but Denis has already prepared stuffed shells (a delish Italian dish). So I have to wait til tomorrow. But the great thing is….I know it’s worth the wait.
