This morning I picked some tomatoes and what
I thought were bell peppers. See those red things,
with the green stem. I was going to make roasted
potatoes with bell peppers, onions and yellow squash.
I chopped up the potatoes, and then I seeded the peppers,
I started coughing and I was thinking, these can't be hot
peppers can they? I kept on chopping. I chopped up
the onion and then I was
still coughing so I said forget the squash. I put olive
oil and kosher salt and parsley and put them in a
500 degree oven.
After they had cooked and were nicely brown and perfect,
I told my family about how hot I thought they might be,
everyone took a sample. So hot, my husband got a gallon
of milk out and we both drank like camels at the well.
I don't even like milk.
Now I don't remember buying any hot peppers like that
I have Jalapenos at the end of the row. This is in the section
that has bell peppers. My daughter said we should name them
" Great balls o' fire." If you could stand the heat, it did have
Nice safe cantaloupe. I am really enjoying these.
It is so nice to be able to cut up as many as I want
instead of feeling like a hoarder when I have to buy them.
My little hens had found a secret place behind the
chicken house to sneak off and hide and lay their eggs.
I found their stash this morning. I had noticed one of
the Cuckoo Marans with a far away look in her eyes
one morning as she was walking along with this little
attitude. If she could talk she would have said, " Oh
hi Mom, watcha doin?" " Who me? Oh nothing, just looking
for some bugs and maybe some dirt to take a bath in, just
go on back to what ever you were doing I'm fine."
I stood there and watched her for a bit and then went on to
whatever I had been doing, but I knew there had to be more eggs
than I was getting. This morning, I was looking around and there
they all were, the whole bunch had been sneaking off to lay their eggs.
Today, they didn't get to go wander around, I made sure they went in
the hen house and got in the nesting boxes like good girls.
They didn't like it either, they just complained.
I am so glad it is Friday, we are supposed to have cooler weather
this weekend, I can't wait. Have a great Friday!
