Friends in High Places!


Oh I finally had the chance to go see where my friend Colleen Myler started working, and boy, was it amazing!
She works at A Simple Life,  www.asimplelifelasvegas.com a place to buy gourmet type foods and mixes and so much more! All the info is on the link there.
You can pop in for lunch, they have soups in soup crocks cooking away, I sampled the split pea and was in heaven!! Hard to get good split pea that does not taste like a can. This one is totally homemade and then after you eat it you can buy the kit to make it at home!! They have kits to make tons of soups, gourmet popcorns and so much more. They also have tons of gluten free items so if you live in Las Vegas get over there and get some gluten free! A whole wall has jams and jellies and sauces, Oh My! and if that is not enough the husband does custom embroidery!!
You can get a sandwich and a slice of homemade pie, I tell you this place has everything!! I even found a jar of Gee!! That is the butter you dip your crab legs in, I can't wait to go buy some of that when I make crab legs again! Oh, they also have mixed butters like horseradish and chive to put on your baked potato, I was going to buy that but forgot! I already had my arms overflowing with goodies! I can't wait to go back and see my friend and buy more goodies!
I bought the kit to make split pea soup, I added 1 potato, 1 carrot, some onion and chicken broth instead of water, it was drop dead fabulous!!! Charlie hates peas so knowing he would not be home for dinner I had it all to myself: can you say YUM!!

It's a great little place, for sure - can't wait to make my Black Bean Soup - and the shortbread turned out fabulous yesterday. They've also got great gift ideas, too...I even purchased an antique grinder! And, the friendliest employees in town.

It's a cute store....Glad you saw it. Got some homemade soup for my parents there. The owners are so friendly. Colleen fits right in there. You go Colleen!
