There is something about peppers that invite alliteration. It all started when “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers…”
Personally I prefer my peppers un-pickled,
Enticingly edible, eatable and esculent,
Pretty, pleasing and plump,
Effortlessly enjoyed and
How about you?
Oh look at you go you gardener you! And I saw what you did there – not only alliteration but also ‘pepper’. Too clever!! And the carrots, left over from the tiny gardeners efforts I presume? Your peppers are so big and dark green and shiny – yum! I shall just have to imagine one in my salad this evening……… heavens to murgatroyd, my mouth is watering ……
“heavens to murgatroyd” LOL….
I stole that from the Pink Panther cartoon …….
I love the Pink Panther and I also love that expression.
I haven’t seen it for years, but the images stick and so does that expression 🙂
It’s a classic. Love the music, too.
You’ll have to hum it – I don’t
Here is the link to the song’s origins:
And here is a link from YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OPc7MRm4Y8
It’s one of my favorites. Can you hear me humming?
Oh, of course – you hummed the first note and there it was – how could I forget it?
Oh man, I remember seeing one at a matinee with a girlfriend as a teen…Clouseau rings a door bell and it gets stuck. I had tears running down my face. (Return of the Pink Panther ’75’
I’m a huge fan. I used to watch all the movies in reruns on TV in high school. I can just see you laughing till you cry too. That’s me!
My boys now like the updated films with Steve Martin and Lily Tomlin.
I wish you could pop over for some peppers to take home for your evening salad. Next year I’ll plant the peppers earlier so they have more time to turn orange before the temperatures drop.
Yes, carrots from the curb garden (I planted plenty of extras) and I’m now seeing a few peas on the vine! Wow this has been fun.
Thanks for the smiles you bring to your comments, Pauline.
I was tempted to call you Pauline P. Pepper…but I won’t. 😉
Wouldn’t that be something – we need quantum leap type travel to kick in in our life times.
Whoosh – zing-zing-zing.
‘I brought you some p-p-peppers Pauline’
‘Oh, hi there Alys, so thoughtful of you to pop over with them, I’m so busy blogging haven’t had a chance to quantum leap for hours …’
Zing-zing-zing – whoosh.
LOL LOL LOL! You’re right. We need that whooshing quantum leap travel, STAT.
I’ll be right over for a mixed-media lesson.
oh yes please, zing-beep-beep, Boomdee’s coming with!!!!
That would be so cool! And you could bring a pepper….. or a carrot ….
I love my Peppers
In Pasta Sauce
I generally put my peppers in a pan with onions, basil, crushed garlic and cherry tomatoes then toss with pasta….I just have to have carbs…and lot’s of them. What a haul!
Oh you clever gal, you. Red, sizzled peppers. Good choice, good choice.
Basil, garlic, onions and pasta…all favorites over here, too. Oh yum!
I had spinach pasta tonight with heavy Garlic and herbs…..no Vampires will visit tonight…haaaaaa – CLUNK (that’s a vampire fainting).
That vampire didn’t stand a chance. Go Boomdee, go!
I had to chuckle all the way through these comments. Who knew that alliteration would lead to pasta with peppers, quantum leep travel, and the Pink Panther!!!
Never a dull moment around here, Laurie! Glad you joined in.

Those peppers are MONSTROUS!!! way to go!
Thank you! They really got big, didn’t they?
Hi there fellow gardener! I know how you can keep all the peppers you grow! Use Epsom Salt around your pepper plants and tomato plants too and it will make them greener and healthier. No bottom rot on any tomatoes or peppers when you sprinkle the Epsom Salt around the plants a little every week. We did it this entire gardening season and we had NO rotten veggies! Come check us out at http://www.nikitaland.wordpress.com and look up our garden posts! 🙂
And so I did. 🙂
