At the Hot Pepper Café...

... you can talk about whatever you like.

Meade grew those peppers, and he left them on the plate like that for me to notice.

Consider doing some shopping through the Althouse portal to Amazon.

So you're not the only artist in the Alt-house, Professor?

Packers give higher meaning to winning ugly.

Well played, Meade...

May I interject some High School football into the discussion?

For the California championship, perennial Northern Cal powerhouse De La Salle plays perennial SouthernCal Powerhouse, Mater Dei of Santa Ana.

I contend that either of these two teams would whip any Texas high school football team, yes, they are that good.

That is all.

This Amazon portal colossus has morphed into a Whole Foods fresh produce marketer. That's some Prime Peppers you got there, Meade.

We were at a Christmas party yesterday in Phoenix with people I work with. The host had a Christmas light display that all were shaped like peppers. Just about like that photo.

Lovely photo!

Question -- can I redeem an Amazon gift card through the portal? I received one today in an early Christmas basket.

Fabi said...

Another question -- which of those micro-peck of peppers is hottest?

Recon this was maybe what Meade was trying to tell you?

Nice harvest! I love me some hot peppers, and they're easy to grow. I've grown some very hot varieties that Meade left off of the plate: habanero, scorpion, ghost.

During The Reckoning can it be possible to Resist and call for removal of the name Kennedy from that Institution?

Any thoughts? Action suggestions?

Bay Area Guy - Texas HS football can't really be compared to the obsession of private schools in a place like California. Lots of Notre Dame aspirations

Excellent Composition, Mr. Meade!

Maybe a little bit too busy, chaotic (like my mind, actually).

Varieties?

Watching the movie "Amazing Grace", the story of William Wilberforce's successful effort to end slavery in the British Empire. Powerful movie.

Carson Palmer was at Santa Margarita Catholic High with my daughter and Mark Sanchez went to Mission Viejo High.

Most picturesque peppers, Meade!

“Question -- can I redeem an Amazon gift card through the portal? I received one today in an early Christmas basket.”

No, but you could use the portal to buy a gift card for someone else.

The produce sections of supermarkets here in the Southwest have lots and lots of peppers that I've never seen before, and which have specific names and uses unknown to me. My yard is full of plants that I can't name. This is what happens when a person from the Upper Midwest moves to the Desert.

Congratulations to Meade. Check out the Chile Pepper Institute at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, world center, I think, for all things chile. https://cpi.nmsu.edu.

As a teen I lived a few blocks from De La Salle. It was a little before their dynastic football years. We pitied them their lack of female students and their hard-assed Brothers.

I am so excited to make some poblano-corn soup tomorrow. Earlier this week I whipped up some medium-hot chili which I devoured in my preferred fashion: ladled over a slab of cornbread and topped with shredded sharp cheddar. I love the sweetness of corn combined with mild or moderate heat any day of the week, and this pregnancy I can't get enough of it.

The other thing I have been craving is vinegary things ~ capers, pickles, mustard ~ yum yum yum. I hadn't eaten a tuna sandwich in years and one popped into my head the other day and I couldn't stop thinking about it; I made the tuna salad with that solid white albacore in a can, a diced dill pickle, thinly sliced celery for crunch, plenty of black pepper and a dash of dill and dollop of mayo to hold it together. Toasted some multigrain bread and it was soooooo delicious. Ate one for breakfast and another for lunch on Friday. I'd go make one right now if I hadn't eaten all the bread.

I started out this pregnancy a little overweight and so have been careful about my gain, and I'm really happy that even with feasting over Thanksgiving I am at 6 pounds gained at 27 weeks. Baby's estimated weight at this point is right at 2 pounds. If I can keep it between the trees I look forward to a smaller jean size after baby was born than when she was created. :)

Meade said...

Thanks for the compliments, folks. And thanks for that website link, Capitol Report New Mexico. Fantastic!

Meade said...

"...I look forward to a smaller jean size after baby ..."

Now let me get this straight: First you misplaced your pants, then you displaced your pants, and now you plan to replace your pants?

My pants life is complicated.

BTW, it's a Homer Simpson quote, as I explain every couple of years (can't believe I've been reading here for six or so years!).

Burlesque madam whose gargoyle Bart broke, to Homer: "Are you wearing a grocery bag?!"

Homer, imperiously: "I have misplaced my pants."
