    If they're not hot at all, you got the wrong seeds. They've bred them to be any way you want. Cracks when ripe, no cracks, really hot, kind of hot, or no heat at all. A friend breeds them for a living and has let me pick lots of leftover crop grown for research. I've made the mistake of getting the no heat jalapeños before. Once they're mixed in a bag, they all become lottery tickets.

    I think ELO's Evil Woman song is about Little Debbie.

    I've got $500-600 worth of Spydercos gathering dust since I got this thing. It is PERFECT for all-day-every-day use. It's non-threatening. I've got a do-all blade and dedicated food blade, a great pair of scissors, screwdriver/prybar/can opener/bottle/opener, corkscrew (which holds the little eyeglasses screwdriver), that odd-looking hook thing that is more useful than I thought it would be, tweezers, and toothpick - all for only $30 and less weight than my Paramilitary 2.
    Let's put it this way: I'm heading for a week of hiking/camping in Alaska and I'm leaving my PM2 at home and bringing my SAK.

    Great thread!

    Great info, shishitos are that way too... about every tenth one you get is an easy 15k SCU. I love it. If I could get consistent jalapenos I'd buy them more often, but the local producers don't favor them for whatever reason.

    Pirate cookies.

    My wife always gives me a funny look when she see’s me opening up the box to enjoy a couple after a meal.

    I love all of these things. If I sat here for a while, I could probably think of some more (Dunlop Ultex 1.14mm sharp picks, for example) but I'm going to go eat something after reading about everyone's favorite foods!

    My Altberg hiking boots. I must have bought a dozen pairs, in 50 years of mountain and trail wanderings- and this is the first pair, that never give me blisters. Beautiful quality leathers and well built, in (and this is the key) a range of width fittings. I've worn them about 340 times, in the last year. Seemed to have a lot of time on my hands.....;)

    This dag is hilarious (and I would probably self-harm after a half day of his racket): https://www.instagram.com/waltergeoffreythefrenchie/

    Wife had lunch with a friend earlier, obviously didn't know about this thread, and brought me back her leftover fried-avo taco from one of the best places in town. What a gal. Kismet!

    My wife usually grows serranos and jalapeños for me, but this year she was too busy. I like any chili I can get red ripe on the vine, because that's about two weeks in wisconsin.

    They had habañero and even scotch bonnet plants next to the jalapeños but I wanted to start easy; next year I’m aiming upwards!

    Being a PNW boy, that SCOTS song was the first I’d ever heard of Little Debbie; still have never seen her stuff in a store yet, but ONE O THESE DAYS...

    My kid made some from scratch a couple weeks ago with copious amounts of thick-cut bacon; it was AWESOME, but I’ll try to make a spicy version next time!

    At the moment I would say ciambella. Ask me tomorrow and it would probably be something different.

    This looks like a donut, so I love it already of course, but how is it different from a donut?

    It's much larger than a donut; I make them about 10"/25 cm in diameter, maybe 2"/5 cm wide. The texture is more like a scone than a donut, with citrus (or anise - eyuk!) flavoring. There's another type that's more like a sponge cake - going to try that recipe next week.

    D.H.

    PS: I see that the usual translation from Italian is indeed donut, but it's pretty different in preparation and size.
