Friday Shout Out: Wild About Wasa

It's Friday, I just watched the World Cup at work with my department peeps, and I'm in a pretty great mood.

Today I "lunched" on a bowl of this spectacular gazpacho recipe that I prepared and let "marry" on Wednesday night and enjoyed for dinner last night. Holy tomato, it is wonderful. Perfect and light, cold or at room temp, and loaded with veggies and all my favorite things. Interestingly enough, it calls for making a paste of one boiled egg, garlic and salt - sounds icky but it really thickened the soup up and tasted great.

I enjoyed the soup with a small salad and a few Wasa crackers I found at Safeway that I've never seen before - "thin & crispy flatbread" in the rosemary flavor. I can't find a link to share so you can see what I'm talking about but they are super-thin, extra crispy, just herby enough, and a great accompaniment to my soup and even on their own or with a little cheese or some type of spread.

If you like crackers but you don't want to eat crappy Ritz or mediocre Wheat Thins, and you want something really substantial (and by "substantial" I mean with these things in nature called "fiber" and "nutrients"), get some Wasa crackers.

Their best-known kind are these - big, broad crackers that have all these nooks and crannies on top. I used to eat them with mango chutney and cream cheese but now that I am watching the pounds I don't even play that anymore.

Yum, Wasa.

Happy F to the R to the I to the D to the A to the Y, y'all!


  1. I love wasas with a wedge of laughing cow cheese. I can easily eat 1 wedge spread over 2 wasa crackers! It's a great snack!
