J Is For Jalapeno

Jack-o-lanterns.
Hmmmppppffffhhhh!
Still pumpkins to me.
Come to think of it, I don't know a single person who uses Jack-o-lanterns.
So obviously that won't be what I talk about. I don't do carved up pumpkins anymore anyways. My kids are too old to enjoy it, so why bother? I live vicariously through others.
This time I want to show you something I have to have. Can't live without it, so I grow my own.
Jalapeno peppers.
I love spicy food, and specifically cooking with hot peppers. The store closest to me doesn't always have a decent selection of hot peppers, so I decided to tackle growing them myself.
I have a bit of a green thumb and figured it wouldn't be too hard. (Keep in mind I have no yard to garden in, only my jungle that used to be a living room.)
I was right too!
They are easy to grow, and I have yielded enough to pass around to my friends as well. Though not too many, I don't ever want to be without.
The only other food resource I grow is parsley. Grows like a weed and is also really easy to grow. I don't use it too often, but it is nice to always have on hand.

What food resources do you grow??

  1. I am exactly the opposite in that I never do jalepenos and I love jack-o-lanterns.

  2. Excellent choice for J! Although I can't eat too many of them. My newest addition to my garden this year, is that I'm growing herbs inside my small greenhouse, and a pick of surprises (mixed several goodies together, and the squash is up already!

  3. Now as an adult, I tend to spice up everything I eat. If I have pizza, I usually spice it up with some jalapenos or red pepper flakes.

  4. Although there are many foods I would love to eat, my stomach does not share my desires to indulge in the spicy. I do understand the urge to toss a bit of heat into some foods, it just seems to enhance all the other flavors of the dish. Oh well, at least I can still smell the lovely aromas!

  5. Jalapeño peppers are yummy in many foods, but I won't work with them after experiencing the burn that the oil causes to my hands. lol Great "J" post. Great to meet you and thanks for stopping by!

  6. I have no green thumb and can hardly keep a plant alive, so I don't grow anything but I've always like fresh fruits especially strawberries.

    thanks for your visit, hope you have a sweet day.

  7. I am a wuss when it comes to hot peppers but I am growing tomatoes and cucumbers and a green pepper plant finally has a flower on it :)

  8. We love hot peppers. They grow quite easily here in AZ as well.

    Herbs are something I always try and grow. It's nice to throw a sprinkle into a bland dish.

    This was just a fun link for the letter "J".

    Thanks for sharing it.

    A+

  9. I love jalepenos and hot foods...but I can only eat a little bit of hot...and even if it is a little bit, I get beads of perspiration on my nose! I am a wimp, but still do love it.

    I hope to have a little raised garden next summer. and I want to grow some herbs inside too.

    Blessings & Aloha!
    Jumping for Joy! I am finally catching up to some of my "J" visits! Please come by if you have a chance.

AVAILABLE FEBRUARY 5TH!
RATED PG
86 minutes
AMAZON US

Illumination and Universal Pictures present The Grinch, based on Dr. Seuss' beloved classic. The Grinch tells the story of a cynical grump who goes on a mission to steal Christmas, only to have his heart changed by a young girl’s generous spirit. Funny, heartwarming and visually stunning, The Grinch is fun for the whole family!



REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

#ChristmasInJuly #Win A Onesie Or Pajamas Of Your Choice! (US/CDN)

The most wonderful time of the year is back, (a little early)! It's Christmas in July!! You too can celebrate with a wonderful gift right here. UglyChristmasSweater.com has the funniest, traditional and branded goodies on the planet! Here is a sneak peek at a couple of things I personally love on their site.

Last year, I reviewed one of the sweaters. You can view that post here. It is easily my favorite holiday sweater. It's so warm and I love the quality of it. This year, I was asked if I wanted a onesie or pajamas to check out. You know I had to jump at the chance, knowing what great quality clothing they have.

I got the Grinch on my onesie! I got an extra large size, and before you go crazy knowing that is big for me, I don't like my pjs to be tight and constricting. I always go a size up on my night clothes. I must have been traumatized in a past life.... These Grinch pajamas are soooooo soft and comfortable. The best part is that it's A/C season so I can actually wher…
