“Chicken Pen” Austin, 2016

こんばんは!Hello, howzit?

Today we went to our friends’ house for a dinner party. As always, we enjoyed delicious food and drink and had a great time chatting with friends. It was cool to hang out in their backyard because not only was the weather perfect, but they have an awesome “Austin-style” yard with chickens, garden beds, and a sweet barbeque grill! And the mosquito coils were burning, so there was a nice natsukashii scent in the air.

At one point in the evening, a friend had us sample some Chile Piquin (Chile del Monte) that his father grew in his garden. The peppers were very hot! 🔥 I love spicy foods, and I would rate these as a 6 on the spicy level (1-10). Good heat, and it lasted for a while – maybe 10 minutes. I had never tasted this type of pepper before, but it is definitely on my list of peppers to grow for next Spring.

Of course we needed something cold to drink, so plenty of local Austin beer was drunk. Hey, it was a party after all! 🍻

I hope you had a nice weekend.

おやすみなさい!
