i love roasted red, yellow and orange peppers as antipasti too, Italian style... i halve them and char over a flame or under the grill, then put them in a pyrex dish, covered with film to steam until they are cool enough to handle, then i peel off the skins, cut into quarters and make a dressing out of olive oil and balsamic vinegar, crushed garlic, lemon juice, lots of black pepper and a pinch of salt and serve with warm crusty bread...

i like to slice and char-grill aubergines and serve that way too, but with lots of fresh roughly chopped mint thrown into the dressing as well...

i grow peppers and aubergines in the garden most summers, it's so nice to just pick and prepare them the same day...

I think that's why we say Pepper instead of Capsicum in the U.S., too. No real American man is going to stick a cap of any sicum in their mouth.


I'd like for us to start using Courgette, too.

Aubergine sounds like a fabric of some kind. "Look at my new aubergine sweater/curtains/socks!"

haha that sounds ok to me - it's a very versatile vegetable - it can also be used as an adjective for a colour/color

Mmm, grilled aubergine!

I shouldn't joke; I've probably eaten cat without realizing it. I do love Chinese restaurants. My favorite one got shut down by the health department a couple years ago. Mmm mmm!

Blagh! I'm a spoiled little brat when it comes to Chinese food. We've got this place that uses amazing, amazing quality chicken. Amazing quality everything, actually. Favorite Chinese food, hands down.

Everywhere I go, including NYC and the sort, always can't touch it.

I actually could not find the Rose blue raspberry mix anywhere, so we used lime margarita mix, and they were still divine.

Ingredients:
1 shot vodka
1 shot blue curacao
1 splash Rose Blue Raspberry Mix
Fill glass with orange juice (to color)

Directions: Add first three ingredients into a highball glass with ice. Fill the rest of the glass with orange juice.

I might have added more than a shot of vodka too.
