Tasty, tasty pain.

It’s no secret that I loathe Summer. The heat, the humidity and everything that goes with them conspire to make me utterly miserable. I have a form of Seasonal Affective Disorder but instead of depression from lack of sunlight, I feel sad because there’s too much.

There is one thing that cheers me up (other than air-conditioning) and that is the fantastic spread of fruit and vegetables that Summer brings.

This is fresh from my garden…

Bowl of Pain - freshly picked assortment of chilies

Bowl of Pain – freshly picked assortment of chilies

I am thinking about all the things to make and the anticipation of the burn and resulting endorphin-rush is intoxicating!

Top to bottom, they are Habaneros, Jalapenos, Cayenne (the thin ones on the right) and a variety that was sold as “Thai Chili” at the bottom (mild to hot) – not very helpful, but they are tasty.
