Kiss Those Peppers People !
This is a short post of the utmost seasonal importance. Last week, a friend of mine gave me some produce from her garden. Let me tell you she is the nicest person you will ever meet and would be mortified by what happened. She is not like my other friends who would just think this is funny. Everything looked gorgeous, especially that long red pepper.She had said "I think this is like a banana pepper" It wasn't. It looked so yummy that I cleaned and seeded it then put a big slice in the wrap I was making for lunch.One bite and flames started shooting out of my mouth. I spit it out and went to get some milk. That would take care of it. Nope. Ice? Nope. Cold Yogurt? Nope. Washing my mouth with Dawn? Helped a little. It took an hour to put out the flames. Later in the day, I touched my lips with my finger. I HAD WASHED MY HANDS PEOPLE. I was blessed with the return of the burn. This morning, I used the same cup that I had used that day. I HAD WASHED IT !!!!! Again my lips burned, If I ever eat a gift pepper again I will kiss it first just to be safe. This is ridiculous.
