how'd that get on my PALATE!?!?!?

Hope you like my play on words in the title, call me a goofball ... but first, call me brave ...

Here's me touching the piece I ate lightly to my tongue before eating it just to gauge the heat.


I should've know then. The fire was, well ... as I type it, it's still with me ... still looks like this ...

my tongue feels like I bit it in the back. Ever get an annoying sting from orange juice or an acidic drink? That's what my tongue now feels like after hours of burn. I actually loved it, and the guys at the farm gave me a bag full of the Bhut Jolokia's to cook with at home ... can't wait to get on the plane 2moro and land with some brainstormed recipes for the new heat I've found! These Tremendos below, were bland in comparison to the Bhut's, but hot I'm sure, to the novice tongue.


Enjoy the weekend and get some heat :-)!

Wow... you are much braver than me. I thought my head was going to explode at the hotpot place I went to in NYC's chinatown, but I'm sure it was nothing compared to the bhut! Hope your eye is okay!

You are one crazy chic!!! You couldn't pay me to do that, but I'm sure my hubby would have loved to try that. He's a sucker for all things spicy, the hotter the better for him!

Congrats on the additional time slots you were given!

Ohhh, I took pics of the South of the Border signs...will send them to you later on!
