I look forward to when it isn't 110 outside and my wife will want to use the oven so we can make tater tot casserole again. It is casserole when we make it, because I'm not in SD or MN.

I learned my garbage end of week leftovers have two more names!
Quote:
CAKE IN A MUG

4 Tablespoons flour
9 Tablespoons hot chocolate mix
1 pinch of salt
1 egg
3 Tablespoons water
3 Tablespoons oil
Cooking Spray

Spray a little cooking spray into the mug. Measure out the flour, hot chocolate mix and salt into the mug. Stir. Crack the egg into the mug. Stir a bit after adding the egg so the cup doesn't overflow. Add water and oil. Stir until thoroughly moistened. Make sure to scrape the bottom of the mug with your spoon to avoid any leftover pockets of dry ingredients. Put the mug in the microwave on high and set the timer for 3 minutes.
The handle of the mug may be hot, so use a potholder to remove it from the microwave. Tip your cake cylinder out of the mug into a dish. Your cake may look a little damp and wrinkled. This is normal.

This time i remembered to add this recipie to my onenote file because ti is always a pain in the ass to find again.

Okay, so my housemate who hates spicy things will actually eat Pablano peppers. (A slightly sweet, mild variety of chili.)

Yeah, poblano peppers aren't spicy at all.
Heh. My friend's wife grew up in Michigan, so among her friends and acquaintances is well known for her strict avoidance of ANYTHING spicy. She even has to avoid BELL PEPPERS as "too hot".

:squint:

You should bake her the snooze alarm cookies from the recipie I posted. Just don't tell her ahead of time.
Just keep them in a dish where she walks past all the time, and the smell of chocolate wafts up to her.

I don't want to lose her (or her husband) as friends just for a practical joke.

In other words, she's never tasted a bell pepper.

That she knows of.

Nope. She ABSOLUTELY will know that her dish has bell peppers in it.

Somewhat ironically her husband likes Mexican food, so when they do go to a local Mexican fast food place she fastidiously had specified her meals without anything spicy in it such that the crew working there knows her well. Sometimes perhaps a new crew member will absent-mindedly add bell peppers to her order, so even if my friends order something to go she will return to get her order replaced.

Not in the least. That said, the flavor is similar to the chili peppers I see in a lot of asian/vietnamese food, so now I have something I can actually use make stir-fry or pho at least a little teensy bit more "authentic."

That sucks. She sounds like a nightmare. I'll gladly accommodate someone who doesn't like spicy, but to that degree? No.

I'm not a fan of uncooked bell peppers, either, but when they're cooked correctly, they can be amazing.

I made some homemade red beans and rice yesterday, and used lots of bell peppers, and onions, and even a bit of MSG. And let me just say, my apartment smells AMAZING.

And then for dinner I had some leftover homemade chicken tacos, and I put lots of fresh cilantro on them.

Ohhh yeah. All of the things other people refuse to eat.

how about people with sensitive hearing?

...

I think I need a little more context or an example. Are we talking about people who need everyone around them to whisper and keep the tv on the lowest volume setting?

I have very acute hearing but I am not particularly sensitive to sounds but I am the kind of person who would notice an annoyatron and probably get frustrated trying to find it. On the other-hand, if you put an annoyatron in my wife's environment she would never, ever notice it.
In the wild she would become predator food really fast, her hearing is fine, she just does not attend to what she hears.

[snip]

For her this isn't a matter of preference or merely "not liking spicy". She cannot tolerate practically any degree of spicy that most people would hardly notice.

Look, when I say "doesn't like spicy", I'm aware that it's an issue of tolerance.

I am very familiar with spicy foods, and I am very familiar with certain people who have low tolerances for spicy foods.

My grandmother thought black pepper was spicy, but I cannot imagine how a bell pepper would be perceived as such. What does she think of sweet mini peppers?

I dunno. My guess is that she would be highly reluctant to even try such given their resemblance to red bell peppers (which I can recall she once told me were "really spicy" when compared to green bell peppers. Yeah, I puzzled over that at that time).

I have a suspicion that my friend's wife may be the "wrong kind" of "super-taster" in that she is super-sensitive to any level of spiciness. When in combination with having grown up in Michigan's Upper Peninsula apparently she had had extremely few encounters with anything spicy before attending UofMich, Ann Arbor (which only meant that her number of encounters with spicy foods grew drastically but she still could not tolerate eating anything spicy).

i don't equate "spicy" with peppers.

I have a bazillion spices in my cabinet without grabbing one of the multitudes of peppers available.

goddam commercialism ruined the word spicy.

Bell peppers produce no capsaicin, so I guess I’m curious as to what she’s even perceiving as spicy… like, chemically it just ain’t there.

they sharp like an onion.
can have a little burn from that to the sensitive pallet.
my wife can eat 5 different kinds of peppers.. but bell peppers will bloat her and upset her normally cast iron stomach.

Honestly that sounds more like a food allergy than a reaction to "spicy."

Wypipo and “spicy” food; I’m gonna start acting like they do every time I try one of their bland-ass dishes.

spicy food is funny ... it brings out the macho in so many people

What’s to be macho about? It’s just flavor.
To some people it's macho. One of the most popular hot sauces on Amazon is extremely spicy... And tastes like Orange human waste.

I’m not talking about a bowl of chili made with 15 Carolina Reapers. I’m talking about flavorful, spicy dishes.

A lot of people don't understand that spicy doesn't necessarily mean hot.

And it's not just white people who don't know this.

I sure as hell know it, having grown up in New Mexico, but I've had to explain it to some Latino people from this area.
