When my hubby was deployed I used to stay up very late at night and watch horrible t.v. My little sis had come to stay with me providing much need company in those horrible months. One night we stayed up watching foodnetwork very late and caught a rerun of a cooking show featuring Lisa Loeb and Dweezil Zappa. I know?? After we got over the initial shock that they were cooking, I watched them make a recipe for fried pickled jalapenos. I’ve eaten these before in different variations, fried, wrapped in bacon or stuffed with cheese. The funny thing is when we were watching the show my little sis says “Wow Roy would love those, you should make them for him when he comes back.” I made them for him when he got home, and she was right, he loved them. The last time I made them it was my daughter’s bday party and my little sis’s hubby was with us the first time, he grabbed one -ate it and said “wow I like these,” I laughed a little inside knowing she didn’t remember she had herself suggested me to make them for my hubby. I think at the time she was just trying to get me through that deployment. So every year I make them just for him, today I am making them to celebrate the New Year, to remember how lucky I am to have him in my life and to remember how lucky I am to have a great sis. Enjoy!!
