|hatch chili peppers|
It's Hatch Pepper time at Central Market! Picked up some roasted hatch peppers, some hatch pepper sauce, HP cheese, HP tortillas, and HP crab cakes this week.
Had the crab cakes Thursday with some fresh steamed asparagus and brown butter. Then made scrambled eggs with roasted hatch peppers and HP cheese, rolled into puffy HP tortillas topped with mild HP sauce last night. Delicious! (Can you tell we really like Hatch Peppers?)
They are good in almost everything. We've tried samples in biscuits and cornbread, brownies and chocolate chip cookies, etc. I will admit that they have Hatch chili pepper ice-cream and we haven't tried that. But most things are done with either mild or hot varieties and they are marked. We do "mild".
Next is a picture of grand daughter getting her hair trimmed. Apparently she enjoys the experience.
|She will be 3 in a few months...|
The kids today enjoy experiences that we (or I and my kids) never experienced... like going to professionals to get our hair cut or nails done, massages and spas, etc. Not saying that I've never done this, but certainly never did as a child.
Of course they also have the advantage of being born in the technological age and having their hands on computers and cell phones almost from birth. They are the "digital natives". I find that if I can't do something on my computer or cell phone, I just have to ask a grandchild.
The inside cats are doing fine... Tux was acting strange for a while after Molly passed, but he seems to be over it. He was grumpy and always looking upset. He's a sweet cat... a little needy, but he also has a lot of "attitude" (or "cat-ti-tude as the case may be)... and is easily put off. If he's laying on my lap and another cat comes by, I can't acknowledge them or he will get pissed and walk away. May be he's a bit narcissistic?
Then there's Julie...
Julie is Tux's sister and she's very playful. She will start flying around the house... climb up the backs of chairs, and generally act silly. I caught her here as she was in one of her silly moods.
Julie is our 'counter cat'. A few years ago she decided to claim the kitchen counter as her own and nothing we did discouraged her. Using a spray bottle will get her off for the moment, but as soon as we leave, she's back. Extremely persistent. After a while we gave up and now we put a small quilt on the end of the counter and that's her spot... for the most part.
Have a great Sunday!
