ah.

I think I sprained my hand. I don’t recall how. I think it happened at Costco, and no, I hadn’t been drinking. I remember holding something in an awkward fashion, feeling my hand strain and then thinking “this will probably hurt tomorrow.”
Sure enough, it did hurt. It still hurts. I am a total baby.

On a higher note though, the caramel apple pie from Costco is totally worth that $7.99. It’s big enough to feed 20 or more and if you heat it up and put whipped cream on top, it’s pretty much heaven on a plate.

Speaking of hell on a plate, a few weeks ago, I made corn salsa with jalapenos and tomatoes and onions and other salsa stuff. I’m a pretty first-rate cook and it was pretty good, so I shoveled it in with hardly a breath in between bites until it hit me. The hottest feeling my mouth had ever experienced. My eyes watered, my lips were cherry red and even though I hate milk, I chugged it out of the bottle due to its pepper oil-cooling properties.

Okay, this weekend, I went to buy some jalapenos again. Only I realized that they put habaneros where the jalapenos usually go. No wonder my salsa was so hot. It was full of habaneros instead. I will never. Do. That. Again.

    Yea, remind me to tell you when I accidentally rub Habanaro Pepper oil in my eyes.

    That sucked.

    And we totally faked the moon landing, you CT you.

    You poor thing! That must've sucked big time! I like things sorta hot, but not too hot to taste the good stuff along with them. And even with jalapenos, I remove the seeds and the ribs before I chop them. I've never added a habanero to anything, but I love using jalapenos when they're called for. Salsa sounds yummy!!
