I mean really.

Everything I make has seven pounds of sugar in it.  Its got to stop!

But…I must warn you.

If you do not like veggies or pickling, you might want to turn back now.

Chad's been pickling peppers.


He almost turns it into art.


Each jar is a mini masterpiece of color, variety, and flavor.

People LOVE his pickled peppers.  People who love veggies that is.  I have never eaten a single piece.  I dislike peppers immensely.  And think I am allergic to anything that has been pickled.

I am a terrible wife.  

Its part of the reason I make him so many cakes and cookies.

Guilt baking.

There is an extra fridge in our garage that is dedicated to his creations.

We will probably go through all of this.

And be advised.  If you invite us over, we are probably bringing some.

We might even share. :)

    OK, so the talent in your family doesn’t end with you.
    I get it.
    I like pickles. Used to eat them on Saturday mornings while I was watching cartoons, in fact. But I am not so sure about pickled “other things.” As in, did I see cauliflower in one of those jars? I am having a very hard time imaging that taste!
    And I just can’t eat peppers.
    But I cannot deny your hubby’s talent, and my admiration of it. *grin*

    Excuse my lack of understanding on the subject, but why do you have to refrigerate them? Does he not process the jars? Is that why the pickles I make aren’t crisp?

    You’ve been busy at your house. I like the colors! I don’t know if I’d like pickled peppers.
    Hope you’re having a lovely day!

    The photo’s of your niece are beautiful! The peppers, I don’t like peppers either, although Chad and the kids do. I will say the amount of peppers is impressive!
