Yes, whether mild, medium, or hot, I love peppers! But this is a special basket of peppers. A few years ago, I sent in a video for a competition where Michael Simon would attend the dinner party of the winner. Given that he is an Iron Chef on the FoodNetwork, I decided that one element of my video had to be a secret ingredient. I picked peppers because they play a big role in my cooking. This is the picture of the basket of peppers that I used in the video. Although I didn’t win (I came close as one of the finalists), I still got to cook with this basket full of beautiful peppers.
Despite no Michael Simon, we still had a great dinner party with delicious salmon and pork dishes (Simon recipes). My neighbor even made a DVD with the videos that people had posted as their entries into the contest. They definitely made us all smile. Any excuse for a party, right?
