Sorry :P I couldn't help it, that popped into my head when I was thinking of a title, and you know I had to use it!!
So the other night the temperatures dropped down the 32°... it was ***chilly*** :) That also meant that my long-lived pepper plants were probably threatened. So the next afternoon I trotted out to my garden, and sure 'nough, the leaves were all wilted and sad looking. So I picked every last pepper off the plants, and here's what I got:
Aren't they purty?? I did line them up all nice and neat for the picture - they looked much nicer that way than all jumbled in a pile. And I like taking pictures of nice things... :P They are so beautiful!!! I'm sure that my (almost 2 yrs. old) nephew, Paul, would love to hold them, pet them and probably want to take a few to bed with him too, if he could see them - they are that pretty!!
This also means that I now have no more excuses for not getting the garden cleaned off. Guess I'll have to put that on my to-do list before the soaker hoses get too much more "grown in" with the crab grass (hate that stuff).
So... any "fresh pepper" recipes I should try? I want to use these instead of freezing them, so I'll probably be doing things like fajitas, stuffed peppers, and whatnot in the coming weeks. I already have a ton of frozen ones, so I don't want to freeze these if I don't have to.
