Daredevil Night


Dave and I had some adventures in the kitchen last night.

First, I wanted to jar the rest of the habaneros I had.... I had to boil the vinegar solution first, and I can tell you the smell that produces makes you feel like you live in a salt & vinegar chip factory. So that jar is now off in a dark corner of the fridge to pickle and get nice and pissed off for the next 4-6 weeks.

Dave also made a couple of jars of the Angry Nosebleed Salsa, which we had a little bit of last night. He tried making it differently, by having the tomatoes in chunks instead of pureed. Yea, that didnt work... the habs are so hot that eating even a tiny chunk of tomato was waaay to hot. This stuff is only edible in very very small bits at a time... like... tomato crumb small.

The best part of the night though was the beer. While moving, Dave found a box full of bottles of beer that he home-brewed over 4 years(!) ago! We decided to be brave and try some. It was actually still pretty good... so we enjoyed a couple of bottles. I don't think there were any bad side effects, no halluscinations were induced... but I'll let you know as soon as our cats second head goes away.
