How was your weekend? Great I hope. I had a amazing time with my family filled with lots of laughter, new memories, and great food. I love the few times out of the year we get to spend together being that each family is extremely busy and each live in different states. I had a blast watching all the men sitting together in one tiny room having a couple of beers and cracking each other up, seriously do men ever grow up? Too funny. So what do we feed these silly men of ours? Hearty Hearty Hearty…our men can eat. We whipped these stuffed jalapenos up one night and they were happily devoured. There is many versions of these stuffed jalapenos. Versions include jalapenos being stuffed with cream cheese or mashed potatoes even tomatoes. Our men like the “meat factor” of sausage and bacon. You can grill them or with this extreme heat pop them into the oven. To remove the seeds I find using a grapefruit spoon works really well and please do not rub your eyes after working with the jalapenos, trust me I have done this many times it is not fun.
I’d like to send out extra love filled hugs to Jenn from Chinese Baba formerly know as Defunkt Gourmet for sending me such a lovely little pkg filled with great treats and a AWESOME cd of music, love ya girl!!
And of course all of your lovely selves who continue to visit me, even when I am totally offline, I appreciate you and send out best wishes.
