Wouldn’t You Like To Be A Pepper, Too?
One of the reasons we travel to the Midwest this time of year is because my husband wants to celebrate his birthday with his family. Yesterday he turned 50, and quite a celebration it was. As an added benefit, we are able enjoy the fresh vegetables from the gardens here, especially the tomatoes and sweet corn which are especially good this time of year. Usually. However, the heavy rains this spring have made the tomatoes and the sweet corn scarce. My sister in law did manage to bring a few bell peppers from her garden. They were small and so cute, but they packed a big flavor.
As you probably know, it’s been hot and humid here. This desert rat isn’t used to the humidity. Even so, I am in no hurry to go. There is something about “home” that never changes. That’s just the way I like it.
