Sunday Snapshot: Hot Peppers

As it turns out, our fire escape is the perfect place to grow hot peppers.

Tomatoes? Maybe next time. Catnip? Meh. Nasturtiums? Goodness, no. But, hot peppers? Abso-freaking-lutely!

We couldn’t even get the tomatoes to flower, but somehow we have three different kinds of hot pepper plants, all absolutely filled with ripening peppers. So, who’s got a good hot sauce recipe?

    Mince a pepper and slice some green onion, saute in a little olive oil till barely golden. Grate some fresh black pepper into the pan, let it toast while you scramble 2 or 3 eggs, toss in 1 cup or more of fresh young spinach leaves and crumbled goat cheese.  Pour into the pan, continue to cook, stirring to fold all the ingredients as the eggs cook to your desired level of doneness.
