Today I went into town to visit with a friend. It was so good to talk with her and I hope to see her again soon. Then it was home and frankly, I'm feeling ashamed. I haven't done anything today, NOTHING, NADA, ZILCH, ZERO. I feel more stressed doing nothing than I did being busy all day. It's terrible!!! I did stay all decked out in clean clothes, hair in place, make-up and everything. Hopefully hubby will be able to recognize me when he gets home! Way too often I start out the day looking fair to middlin' but by the time the evening comes I'm not looking so good. You see, I have a tendency to attract dirt. Always have been that way. What's that little boy's name in the Charlie Brown comics? Oh yes, pig pen!! I'm close, very close!!! I'm sure we're related in one fashion or another.
Okay, I promised an update on the jalapeno poppers. Well . . . I think I must be a weenie. The stuffing and breading were absolutely perfect. The only problem was if I left them in the deep fryer long enough to soften the pepper the stuffing would melt and ooze through the breading and would get too brown. The bottom line is - I fixed about 6 and ate 5 and to be honest the peppers themselves were like eating raw jalapenos. Now folks, maybe that's the way "real" poppers are supposed to be and if so - - - I'm definitely a weenie. The ones you get at the restaurants though are softer and I love them - so consequently, I have frozen 24 poppers in hopes that freezing them will change the texture of the pepper and they will be softer. But, oh my, they were good . . . and oh man, they were hot!! So - when my poor stomach recuperates from the heat - I'll try it again!!!
I'm wondering if any of you can help me. Following are 3 pics of - I think - wild pear, but I honestly don't know. They are not plums and I don't think they are apples and definitely not peaches. Any ideas?
