Sometimes she tries to cook

Note to myself:
Next time, set a timer before pouring
yourself a glass of Tscheppe's Gelber Muskateller wine!

    1. When my daughter spotted the black peppers this morning, she exclaimed immediately: "Mom, they are beautiful, you need to take a picture!° ;-)

    1. Merisi's sense of smell was a bit unreliable. ;-)

  4. Merisi, your charred peppers do make for a very strong visual image...mezzotint muses, perhaps.

    I usually count on your posts to give me beauty as I have my breakfast OJ, coffee, and fuel of the day.

    Seeing this post after supper as the sun sets have given me another timeline for your photographic gems. xo

  9. Actually, I wonder if the pulp beneath those peppers are still eatable? I have never charred them successfully, but I still try.

    1. I know what you mean, Kate, but trust me, those were burned right through. ;-)
      Thankfully, most of the time I pay attention and put on the timer when charring peppers, and it works beautifully. You don't need to char them all the way, as soon as a few charred spots show, the skin can be slipped off easily.

  10. I can't tell you how many times I've walked away from something in my oven and only realize my neglect when I smell a burnt odor!

  11. Haha, I love this one, Merisi! You should have saved it for Theme Day.

    Last week I warmed a bowl of sweet potatoes in the microwave, got distracted, and found them only two days later when I next opened it. :)

      You know how often I reheat tea or coffee because I did not get to drink it before it turned cold and then I forget about it?
