Too Many Jalapenos
I went to an incredible hot yoga class yesterday.
You see, the weather here is hot. Very Very Hot.
Oh, and did I mention the humidity?
The temp outside was 102 degrees. The instructor turned the heat on in the yoga room, then right before class started, he turned it off. The classroom never cooled off. It was so hot outside that the yoga room stayed a toasty 104 degrees with lots of humidity. I’m pretty sure I sweated every bit of a cold out of me…. so I was on mission rehydration all day 🙂
Since its so hot outside, M had an indoor play date. She had a blast with her two best buds C & L 🙂
She also loved the cherry banana popsicles I made the other day!
Yes… my daughter is pretending the popsicle is a telephone…
I picked my first bell pepper from my garden! Its so cute!
I don’t know what I was thinking when I planted the jalapeno plant… Look at all these jalapenos! Plus, there’s over a dozen more on the plant waiting to be picked.
I tried giving some away, but jalapeno’s isn’t exactly something people eat every day.
I need to do some research on what to do with them.
Can I freeze them?
On my agenda for today:
- Get a 6 mile run in before the temperature gets over 90 degrees.
- Make a trip to my favorite store, Target, to stock up on some essentials.
- Clean the hardwood floors.
- Make more popsicles.
- Pick up hubby from the airport 🙂 🙂 🙂 He gets back from a business trip today 🙂
- Start to pack for a weekend trip to PA 🙂
- Research what to do with jalapenos!
Have a great Thursday!
I wish I was closer – I would love to take some of those jalapenos off of your hands!
And where are you going in PA?!?!
Pickle them! Then you can use them all year long. They’re great on nachos or tacos
I am in love with your daughter. Seriously.
Can I get some vegies from your garden? 🙂 I got some popscicle molds last week and have been making popscicles like crazy!! I just made some peach creamscicles soooo yum!!
oh, i would totally take some of those off your hands! what if you dried them and the reconstituted them before you wanted to use them? i think that would work since it works for other chilis and peppers…
That bib is adorable. When I have kids I want to have girls so I can get them cute bibs like that. (And for a thousand other reasons not the least of which is mother-daughter manicures.) Make jalapeno cornbread. Mmmm!
sounds like you’ve been busy!
try roasting the jalapenos til the skin is black, then stick them in the freezer. the roasted flavor is delicious!
Your little M is a doll!!
I love fresh jalapenos! What I would do is pickle them and preserve them for the winter. YUM
That is a lot of Jelapenos… I am curious as what you come up with 🙂
I would also take jalapeno’s! I did just see a recipe in Eating Well for canning and I just made some pickles but they had a recipe for jalapeno’s too!
Ah…good luck with that run! It feels like even in the early morning and late night it is still insanely hot out there!
M is SO cute! I seriously hope my future babies are half as cute 🙂 Funny, my jalapenos are the one thing I haven’t gotten yet!! I want some before I leave! Salsa is always tasty!! Freezes well too if you make a pureed smooth salsa! Off to checkout those zucchini muffins!
Love the peppers!
It seems like hot yoga studios are the people benefiting the most from this heat wave.
Hopefully, this doesn’t post twice! I just wrote out a reply and my connection timed out. Darn. Anyway…
My mom plants jalapenos every year so that she can freeze them to use through the winter. (She also freezes peppers, squash, zucchini, green beans, edamame, etc.) Just wash them, slice in 1/2, wrap individually in plastic wrap and place in freezer ziploc. You can defrost only what you need in fridge or microwave and use them just like you would fresh jalapenos. Just don’t rub your eyes after you touch the seeds 😉 .
I’ve always wanted to try hot yoga! It was getting pretty warm in our studio today but it was nothing compared to what hot yoga must feel like. I bet your muscles feel fannntastic
My mom just stir-fried jalapenos with dried tofu and dried anchovies. It’s awesome! Man, who needs a hot yoga room when you’ve got this crazy sauna weather outside? At least you get in a good sweat!
M is really developing a personality! Love it…she looks a lot like you! 🙂
So wish I could take come of the chiles off your hands !!
If I had some I’d make this 😉
Always wanted to try making my own pickled chiles too…
Impressive that you still did the Bikram hot yoga in the heat. This time of the year my hot yoga practice goes out the window. I spend enough of the day being hot already.
I want a popsicle now. 🙂
I love jalapenos! Send them my way to Florida!
hmmm….i freeze everything. peppers seem to freeze well??
I just showed Maya Marin’s picture and told her we were going to see her next week. Maya said, “Oh, she’s SO cute!”
Hope it cools off before next week!!
