A SPICY TASTE OF SUMMER IN THE MIDST OF WINTER

Out of five lemon pepper plants from the summer, I only got one pepper.   It appeared this winter on a plant that I had brought into the house.  I thought it might be good in a pasta dish with black garlic.  I gave it a little taste before adding it to the pasta.  After chugging a pint of cold milk from the fridge, my mouth finally cooled off enough that I did not have to go to the hospital.  I was concerned there for a moment.  I'm really happy that I didn't add it to the pasta.   It was smoking hot.

I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.  It has been another weekend that has just flown by way too quickly for me.  Let's hope the week goes by just as quickly.

Thanks so much for stopping,

  7. Good thing you tasted it first! Making a dish that's too hot to consume is never fun :) It does look pretty innocent though, I probably would have not even tested it!! lol

  13. Candace, that is so funny! The name "lemon pepper" sounds so mellow, you caught me off guard. I have never heard of black garlic. I'll have to look into that one. Have a good week!

  15. Lemon pepper?! I don't think I've heard of those. But then again, maybe it's for the better--I like spicy, but not THAT spicy. :)

  16. I made some sausage spaghetti the other day with sausage that was waaaay to spicy! I just didn't even enjoy it!
    The bad news: I tagged you in today's post. If you don't do these/don't want to, no worries!

  18. My stomach is very sensitive to spiciness and so I try to use herbs, plants and spices that do not burn! So if you were that burned then I would have big trouble with my stomach, I guess!

  19. What a gorgeous, vibrant pepper! Perhaps we need to just admire its beauty - it's clearly got some potent powers of protection!

  20. I've never heard of lemon peppers. My husband has a fridge full of habeneros and jalapenos. I'm sure he would appreciate this spicy little thing. Sorry it almost sent you to the hospital, but it sure made for a pretty pic! LOL!!! : )
