  1. I am making these for the boys tonight. Probably will wince at the cost of peppers, and they will most assuredly be green. Red ones will run 3 or 4 bucks apiece. I can just see you shopping for peppers, and checking if they stand as part of the selection process. love and miss you. Mom

  2. stomach is growling.

    I am having a party tonight with appetizers. Why oh why can't you be here to cook?
