Who knew? Today when I went to Subway and they asked me if I wanted jalapenos I said, "Yes, extra jalapenos please." What? Where did that come from? Am I just getting old (are my taste buds dying off and need an extra boost of flavor?) or has that yummy taste been there all along?
My favorite is when the spicy of jalapeno taste mixes with the sweet flavor of the sweet onion sauce on the teriyaki chicken sandwich. Mmmm, oh ya!!
What has gotten in to me? When I got married I didn't even want to eat peperoncini peppers on anything. And heaven forbid if the salsa was any hotter than "mild". Brad laughed at me and labeled me as stubborn (probably a fair label). Finally out of sheer embarrassment (a grown woman picking peppers out of the Olive Garden Salad), I ate a few. And low and behold, they were quite tasty indeed. That was the limit though. Jalapenos were WAY over the line. They were ugly, had an unappetizing crunch and they were definitely TOO HOT! Somewhere along the line (I'm not even quite sure where) of my biweekly trips to Subway (someday I'll give a full account of my addiction to Subway) I acquired a taste for them. And today I ordered EXTRA! Miracles never cease!
Hmmm, just thought I'd share.
