Just one more week until Halloween. And guess what starts this weekend?! Countdown to Christmas on Hallmark Channel. Okay, okay. I know it’s still October. But you guys know by now that I’m obsessed with Hallmark Christmas movies. I don’t care how predictable the storyline is. They’re still ridiculously addictive to watch. Lol.
Anyways, I thought today I’d share with you something simple and easy to make. Mostly because it’s been somewhat stressful the last few weeks, and I just need some simplicity in my life. There’s almost no work needed to prepare for this dish. And the seasoning is super simple too.
Have you ever had a chance to try padron peppers or shishito peppers? You can usually find them as appetizers at Japanese restaurants. And it’s one of those dishes that I like to order to share.
Fun fact. One in every ten padron peppers or shishito peppers will be spicy. So sometimes, my family and I like to make a game out of eating these peppers. We want to see who would be lucky enough to come across a spicy pepper. And even though I’ve eaten so many of them, I have never come across one that’s spicy.
One of my friends recently told me that one time he and his friends ordered a basket full of shishito peppers and every single pepper they ate was spicy. How that’s possible, I’m not really sure. lol. Does anyone know how to tell which one is spicy? I’d love to know so I can finally try a spicy one.
