Pinterest & A Public Service Annoucement

I'm still as addicted to Pinterest as I was a few months ago.

At first, I couldn't get enough of the home decor ideas that flooded the screen in front of me.  But then I discovered recipesOhhhh the recipes.

Pictures of red velvet this and pumpkin that.

After making a few desserts, I graduated into entree territory.  For some reason, Pinterest had me actually wanting to cook.  And I don't mean Hamburger Helper (which I love.....tsk tsk judging).

So far I've been thrilled with all the recipes I've tried!  The mister has been too!  He especially loved a Chicken Enchilada Pasta dish, and he even ate the leftovers.  We also liked a White Chicken Enchilada recipe.

But his favorite of my escapades was probably the Jalapeno Poppers, which he didn't even eat.  No, he doesn't like jalapenos.  He just likes terrorizing me when I'm clumsy or forgetful.

While making the poppers, I sort of forgot that I'd handled jalapenos.  And I guess I must have touched my face.  Because all of a sudden, I was aflame!  Random spots on my face were stinging.  It was the worst burning sensation you can imagine

Washing my face didn't work.  I had to resort to Google.  And in my search, I read that milk was a great remedy for jalapeno burns.  So, a plate of milk was served up.  And face first I went.

Being in such a vulnerable state left me defenseless against the mister, who was snapping photo after photo of this horrifying event......

So let this be a lesson.  Upon touching jalapenos, wash your hands in soapy water prior to touching your face.  Or earlobe.

But if you forget, remember the tale of the terrorized wife, and pray you have a jug of milk.


  1. In a small way I believe that was karma for laughing at me when I asked Pullan how she cut her jalepenos! I know that pain all too well. I would also really like to taste those again. They were delish!

    I'm still addicted to the Everyone section of Pinterest. Hours pass and I find so many new things that make my life better!

  2. +1!!! Pinterest recipes could VERY easily make me broke and overweight! I'm trying to keep up with my comments on the ones I've made. Not sure I'll ever get 100% caught up with my pins.

    Here's my 2 cents on some of my pinterest recipe section so far:
    Grilled Balsamic Garlic Crusted Pork Loin...the best thing I've made from Pinterest so far.
    Cream Cheese Lemon Bars...big hit.
    Summer Strawberry Coconut Cake...good but fell apart when cut.
    Sweet and Salty Roasted Chickpeas...gross.
    Summer Tomato Lentil Wraps...can't wait to make again.
    Chik-Fil-A on, so good. We take this on the river.

    Enjoy! I know you are loving this place as much as I am!!

  3. oh girl, that was definitely not fun!

    I've just joined Pinterest and haven't had time to look at many boards yet...I know it's going to be addicting!

  4. I am going to try the enchilada recipes - yum! I don't like jalapenos to begin with, but now I am scared of them! :) Thanks for linking!
