Cyndi tells me that I’ve killed my tastebuds because I put hot sauce on my food. I’m sure the guys at Subway think I’m crazy when I ask for more jalapenos on my sub 3 times. I just like my food to taste.
When I moved to the UK, my view of British/English food was that it was fairly bland. That was reinforced when I went to an indian takeaway for curry. I asked for it to be made hot…Isaac could have eaten it and not batted an eye. It was so not hot at all.
Today though, the BBC has an article about a new record-breaking chilli. And it is grown in the UK. I can’t believe it!
