Hi Loulou.
Maybe you could find a recipe for your jalapenos to go with the weird purple cauliflowers that we found yesterday and posted about on the Bella Wines blog.
Hope your roof was OK last night. Big drama but could be disaster for some vineyards!

Love the purple and green thing you have going! It's beautiful! :)

Loulou said...

Those are some weird purple cauliflowers! And the yellow ones? Where do they get them? Are they grown locally?
Our roof is fine. We never have problems (knock on wood) We were at the bar last night watching the storm. Very dramatic.
Hope the vines are ok up in La Caunette and Minerve!

Lots of purple this time of year. Grapes, figs, now peppers!

Great picture. Are they hotter?

Loulou said...

Our friend said that they were spicy, but just to find out myself, so I could answer your question, I bit into one.
Yes, spicy.

If Peter Piper picked a peck of purple peppers, how many purple peppers did Peter Piper pick?

Mimi from French Kitchen said...

Two weeks from now I will be shopping at outdoor markets in the Quercy area and I will look for these and other produce I cannot find locally.

I hope to experience parts of the vendange, too.

Peter Piper picked a lot of purple peppers!

I'm so glad that you're coming back to France! You must be so excited.
Have a wonderful trip. Will you be blogging while you're here?

They look fantastic, what an amazing colour!!!

We have those purple cauliflowers here as well.

Have you tried the purple cauliflower? I imagine that it tastes just like the white.
The purple peppers were HOT. I think they are gorgeous!
