The Chili Cycle

to be continued


The crab apples and peaches along the driveway are busting out blossoms. The smaller tree with the white blooms is a cherry. I forget the variety.

The redbud in the front garden is showing why it is named so.

I coated the cod filets with Andy’s Cajun breading and served them with fries and sides. I’m afraid I will run out of those fermented peppers before I can grow more.

Bitsy, being a good kitty.

Homer, pretending to be a good kitty.

A couple of chicken thighs roasted in the counter top oven made a decent lunch. They were seasoned with paprika, garlic, and Aleppo pepper.

This crab apple has seen some things. It was broke down by an ice storm several years ago but bounced back. I took the pic through some branches of a vitex. It always comes on late. It does have some green buds just now showing.

Huevos Rancheros

I watched that Mexican granny cook something similar to these.

She cooked her veggies more than I like and I’m adding smoked pork to the pan.

I noticed that she fried her eggs in quite a lot of oil. I used more than she did. It makes it easy to baste them and they cook faster.

They will fold up like tacos or burritos but I ended up with knife and fork. That runny yellow! [Chef’s Kiss]
