Thanks so much for all the great design feedback!! Truthfully, I’m still reading through all of them and haven’t figured out what I’m doing yet. One idea I really liked was making a huge chalkboard that’s backed on a piece of wood covered in vintage fabric. Not quite sure though how that would all play out….I’ll keep you posted! I did do another little mini project this afternoon and I can’t wait to show y’all after I have them all done and perfect.
Now though, I want to talk about peppers.
Not just any peppers, but specifically padron peppers. These little green peppers are mild in taste and are just everywhere this time of year in Northern California. I’ve seen them at countless farm stands, farmer’s markets and on the appetizer menu of many nice restaurants.
I had padron peppers for the first time last year, when I visited the Zin Restaurant Farm. Jeff threw a bunch of them in a huge fire roaster and we ate them piping hot with sea salt sprinkled over the tops.
I burned my mouth off, but it was worth it. And when I stumbled upon the peppers again last Sunday, when I hit up the Sebastopol Farmers Market with Almanzo, I immediately grabbed ‘em!
My favorite way to prepare these peppers is to fry them quickly in olive oil and then sprinkle rock sea salt on top. We ate them straight out of the bowl last night alongside the chili and it really made the meal complete!
They’re not spicy—I swear!
