Big Jim Peppers Are Here, Homemade Chana Punjabi, Vegan Russian Dressing, and More pics
This pepper! BUT...this isn't just 'any' pepper...it's a Big Jim Pepper from our Rooftop/Container Garden at work! Woot! Sam and I cut one open and ate it raw and LOVED it. It wasn't sweet. At the end it had a kick to it, too! YAY! These did really well for us and we are already planning on doing more next year. We had 3 plants that were good size and produced a few. If we spaced them out more I think we could have gotten more of a yield but I'm happy with what we did get!
We have some late bloomers of our rooftop produce which I will be sharing with you soon. We are still waiting on the Brussel Sprouts, too, but they do take a long time from start to finish.
1 Can of Chickpeas
1/2 tea Wildtree Garam Masala
1 tea Wildtree Garlic & Herb
2 Large Tomatoes
1/4 tea Turmeric Extract
Pinch of Garlic Chili Sea Salt
1 C Cashews
2 T Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tea Coconut Sugar
1 tea Wildtee Garlic & Herb
1 tea Dijon Mustard
1/2 C Relish (or chopped sweet pickles)
3/4 C Ketchup
This was a great dressing AND a wonderful dipping sauce. Overnight in the frig it thickened up because of the Cashews! YUM!
We visited 3 Moonshine places while in TN. It's now legal there. We sampled a few from Ole Smoky. They had Moonshine infused cherries. I thought I would like them more than I did but they look super cool in the glass jar, don't they?
My husband ended up purchasing one of their baseball caps. And some of their Blackberry Moonshine.
There were a few Wineries nearby and we intended to go back and check them out but we ran out of time while on vacation.
There were places to sit and shop. A few places to grab some beverages like a specialty coffee or pastry. But my FAVORITE part was this fountain and the building facades.
I still have a LOT to blog about from our vacation and more photos to share here and on the Travel Blog. But I will save those for another day!
I have more giveaways to post about, too! Hopefully tomorrow! Stay Tuned!
And don't forget to scroll down...this wasn't my only post for today!
