How to de-seed a pepper

Okay, SOMEONE out there does not know how to do this. 
This is going to be easy-peasy with de-seeding a jalapeno, poblano, etc. 
I use a corer if I'm using the pepper for stuffed creations.
If you're dealing with a highly potent pepper and are accident-prone and forgetful, touching your face or eyes after handling peppers...WEAR GLOVES!

STEPS:
  • Rinse the pepper.
  • Cut the end of the stem portion.
  • Cut the pepper in half.
  • Cut out or spoon out the seed and contents.
  • Use your pepper(s) as desired. Chop it up! Slice it! Do whatchalike!
  • Thoroughly wash your hands after handling.
 With the stem portion and seeds I tossed them at the entrance of my fence. I did this because there was a slight opening that a cat or animal could crawl underneath (until I put the broken terracotta pots there). I thought the pepper smell would deter any critters from entering, even if momentarily. Chill out pet lovers.


One day I noticed pepper plants sprouting there! I dug them up and incorporated them into the garden with the other pepper and tomato plants. You may also want to dry the seeds and plant later. From my experience, some seeds produce and some do not. I remember planting an entire pack of tomato seeds. Only plants grew. No fruit produced. 

Otherwise, just toss them.

Grilled Peaches & Herb

Why not pair fruit with herbs? Why not grill them? Growing up, I used to listen to my Mom's records often. So, when I hear 'peaches & herb' I can't help but to remember the 1960s duo and their hit "Reunited". I came up with this grilled creation and dedicate it to 'Peaches & Herb'. GRILLED PEACHES & HERB                           INGREDIENTS :6-7 peaches (real peaches, not nectarines), 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/4 c. brown sugar (dark brown, light brown, it doesn't matter...just brown sugar), fresh lemon thyme sprig or 1 tbsp. (dry should be okay since the liquid from the peach will reconstitute the dryness) TOOLS & EQUIPMENT : knife, foil, grill YIELDS : approximately 5 cups STEPS : Rinse peaches Wash the fresh herb. See blog of "How to wash fresh herbs" Layer the ingredients, peaches first, in a foil pouch. See blog of "How to Create a Foil Pouch"  Grill for 30-45 minut

How to Spray-Paint a Leather Chair

Mr. B. wanted this chair from my Gramma sooooo bad. It's a plush, large leather chair she had as a pair in her entrance sitting area. She gave it to him like it was nothing. Hmph, what can I get so easily? Just kidding. She'd give you anything you asked for. I had no idea where this man wanted to put such a huge chair. With the Batcave project in planning stages, a spot was found for it. But how does a brown chair fit into a Batman/ batcave theme? Ah, old faithful spray-paint. Again, this chair was BROWN!  You must work with the paint as it is wet so the wet colors merge. Work in separate areas at one time if you're not quick enough. For instance, if you're too intimidated and find yourself working slow, work with the back first, then another section, and so forth.  I began by spraying the chair with the dominant color black.  While the black paint was still wet and at a distance, I sparingly sprayed the secondary color of the blue.

Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na BATMAN!

Everyone has a childhood hero. At some point we've had an idol.  Do you ever grow out of either? Nope. Mr. B. is a perfect example of his childhood hero and grown-up idol..... Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Batman, Batman, Batman! Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na Batman!

With the kids leaving, it now serves its purpose as "The Batcave".   It was a fun project, with much toil and sleepless, hungry nights. Nevertheless, I enjoyed seeing all the pieces come together. I worked from hand-drawn plans with minimal tweaks. This goes back to me always saying planning is important
