    I made some cheese fries for lunch in the air fryer today, I added 1/4 of a minced jalapeno to the top when I topped them with cheese. I'm pretty tolerant of hot peppers, sometimes I get a burning sensation somewhere I don't remember having touched, but this time....... the pain was intense...

    had a bit of an adventure last night - my cousin came over to help me pick up a large package, the place was closed, so we decided to go for a hike in the full moon. It was pretty good! Nice view, quite a bit of light so the trail was visible without flashlights. When we were about halfway...

    This morning I made a McClint (whole wheat toasted sandwich with an egg, 2 slices of cheese, 3 slices of bacon, and some ketchup) with 2 eggs & 2 slices of bacon on the side. I filled my faithful friend's dish but put it out of her reach so I could pour some bacon grease on her dog food after I...
