  1. Oh Ashley sweetie...
    This sounds wonderful. I know Tony would love it. He loves jalapaeno anything. I am jotting it down for whenever it cools off a bit around here and somebody will feel like eating something hot.

    We are still having triple digit heated days. You go to work in the heat at 5:00am and come in hotter heat at 3:30pm. Yep we have hot, hotter and the hottest. Nothing more.

    How are the classes going for you and J? Have you started them yet, or just got signed up? My daughter started her college classes back up 2 weeks ago and is going full steam. She will graduate in the Spring. We can't wait.

    Well sweetie, thanks for stopping by. I was finally able to sign up to follow you. Harold helped me with a computer issues I was having and I am back up and running again.

    Have a blessed week sweetie. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
