Hidden Pleasures of Pepperoncini

Pepperoncini is one of those Italian, Greek and Eastern European peppers that are very popular in their homelands. However they are not commonly used in the United States except as a whole chile added to an antipasti or pickled in vinegar in commercially packaged jars.

It’s uncommon to find the pepper used in a sauce but is particularly delicious when you use it this way. I also like it straight out of the jar, chopped up with tomato, onions and garlic or with pasta, chicken or flank steak.

Autumn's Changing Season & Raspberry Delight

      Well, the seasons by the calendar have officially changed and we are full into autumn. Weather still has not made up it's mind and I am waiting for the leaves to change. It's times like this that I really wish I had a couple of kayaks to take out on some of the ponds and lakes and go leaf peeping. But will just have to find another way to enjoy looking for the changing leaves like on nice nature walk through some of our conservation areas. We have so many within 7 miles of my home that I can not even begin to hit them all.

Wandering At Sea Level

Graves Light, Boston Harbor

Bearing due west at 15 miles, I caught sight of a single flashing light in the darkness. I’d seen it plenty of times, but still wasn’t sure, not having a chart handy.

“What are those four lights in a row to the right of it?” my companion asked.

“Chatham Bars Inn. Just up Shore Road. Those are the lights on the top floor,” I said.
