    Chilies are a fru-? Er, yes! Of course they are! How silly that people don't know that. Other people. :shifty:

    I might have to try the Chiwheaties thing. I like the chili taste in lots of things, so I'm sure it will be pretty good.

    (For the record, I was going to say "Whillies" instead of "Chiwheaties", but then I thought saying out loud that I wanted to try some spicy whillies might send the wrong message.)

    Once you get the skin off, and dilute the capsaicin some, the "meat" of a pepper is actually pretty sweet.

    Bell peppers aren't so much because they're usually more mature and people never take the skin off. Plus their size somewhat dulls the sweetness. But pick one at the right time and roast it up, and it will taste pretty sweet.

    Not everyone's from round here, Clegg, most of this country, I sadly report, does not know the joys of roasting chilies, eating pinyons or putting fresh honey on a warm sopapilla.

    If the mayor ever wanted to attract new residents, all he'd have to do is kidnap people from around the country and stand them outside anywhere in town on any Saturday afternoon in September. They'd never leave.

    This is EXCELLENT chocolate. If you like chillies you really should try it. It's great, great stuff. Nice quality chocolate with a great chillie kick that really takes off as you just finish the square.

    Chocolate is used as a savoury ingredient in some mexican dishes that contain chillie.

    :guffaw:true, true, but, alas,I went out into the wastelands to try to bring green chillie to the uneducated masses, but they couldn't handle it.

    Your brother and sister look like great, warm and ebullient people Kes. You sound like you have an ideal family.

    Speaking of chocolate...

    [​IMG]

    This was one of the best chocolate packs I've ever bought. A really great selection of 7 chocolate flavors: Black Sea Salt with Caramel, Orange Hibiscus, Coconut Caramel, Chili Cinnamon, Almond Ginger, Salt & Pepper Potato Chip, Coffee and Cocoa Nib. The Salt & Pepper Potato Chip was the most unexpected... convincing blend of chips & chocolate.

    Yeah, Kestra's and her brother's and sister's smiles are brightening my day! It's nice to see pictures of people who look genuinely happy. :techman:

    Thank you! :)

    Thanks guys. A lot of people say that we look really similar and I think sometimes it's more in certain pictures than in person. But we sound almost identical, especially if we have been around each other a lot. We've confused our own mother, spouses, and I think even my sister's dog by sounding so similar.

    We're actually a really quirky, eccentric bunch but I think we're all really lucky to have each other. Crazy or not.

    Aww, that's really sweet. Thanks! Strangely enough, the pic with my sis was taken during one of my most difficult periods (right when I was making the decision to divorce my husband) but my sis and my friends were there for me and we had a good night together. I think the right people in your life can help you through anything. And there's always something to smile about. :)

    Having a close-knit supportive family means everything. You're seriously lucky Kestra, and it shows. :techman:
