Three separate slightly-related topics about tonight’s posting:
- We didn’t really love the green chile dinner overall, which is interesting. My old go-to menu item was the wet green burrito. But without a tortilla, and after having discovered the chicken torta (NOT one of the 88 items, unfortunately), I rarely eat the green chile burrito.
- Did you know that most red chiles started out as green chiles? I didn’t either until I started growing jalapenos in my garden. Most of the green jalapenos you eat are either fresh or pickled. Otherwise, they just keep going until they turn red. ALSO, different colored peppers have different nutrients, e.g., red bell peppers have nearly 9 times more lycopene, carotene and vitamin C than green bell peppers.
- Yeah, apparently we’re not a super huggie group with each other. Even though the clowns on Entourage have spawned the “hugging it out” phenomenon for guys, we just don’t hug all that much I guess? BTW, I heard this song on BBC Radio 1 the other day, and it’s not going to change the world, but it just kind of made me laugh a little. It’s called “Bear Hug” by the 2 Bears.
p.s. Guess what the 2 Bears look like….
Tonight’s menu: the number 12 – green chile w/ meat, rice, beans, salad & tortillas.
