This evening we ate the jerk seitan meal made with the habanero pepper. Well, only half! And I had heard that the more you chop the pepper the hotter it makes the food, so we floated the half-pepper in the sauce and removed it before eating. Yeah, we are pretty skittish about something so potentially lethal….
I chose the recipe because it says to serve the sauce with "lots of rice and sauteed cabbage and carrots." We do have cabbage, carrots, onions, broccoli and peppers from the garden, so I sauteed them for the meal.
As you can see from my plate, I was a little hesitant to take much at first. It was hot, all right, but still tasted good. And now I know what "jerk" seasoning is…
By the way, the days are getting shorter and shorter here in the Western Hemisphere. Yesterday evening I took a walk as the light was fading.
They are taking down the corn.
Was this really the best time to shave Muggs?
At least we all see the same moon!
