Sometimes, Transformation Attack likes to do her own thing; She might just buy a ring tone and let the phone ring (just let it ring ring ring like Chance the Rapper LOL!)
So when the lunch room had free peppers for grabs, I couldn’t let the opportunity slip away!
They’re tiny and orange, definitely undernourished or baby sweet peppers that someone at work gave up on in their garden. I was pretty sure they’d be delicious in chicken and rice.
Then I forgot to put them and any remnants of veggies in my chicken and rice; But, I had another recipe! Good thing too cause they looked like they wanted to start wilting.
I’m chopping those suckas up like I learned on YouTube, just rock choppin away like a mastah cause I don’t want them to be chunky in this creamy tomato sauce recipe I deviated from trashed; when my fingers started tingling. Strange, but what the hell, throw them in the frying pan with the onions!
Immediately the fumes of spiciness assaulted my sinuses! I was coughing, sneezing, eyes watering-I was a hot mess! Quickly, I opened windows, turned on the kitchen fan and got all the tissues for residuals from my nose.
Y’all, I tasted this sauce And I was set ablaze. I just about died from the flames. I was like gimmie more cream! Where’s the cheese?! I must’ve doubled or tripled the sauce just to get it from a 10 (hot as hell) to an 8 (sound the alarm). I must’ve chopped up six of those peppers.
Problem is, they were HABANERO peppers! And I was cooking for lunch TOMORROW. So not only will I be eating a marinated fiery doom but my fingers went from tingling to burning. I waited too late to get the pepper oil off (I didn’t realize quick enough!) so everything I tried made it worse. I had to sleep with the AC on my fingertips.
Guys, pray for me. My fingers are still burning this morning as I type and this death sauce with rice is the only thing my broke self has for lunch (˃̵͈᷄⌓˂̵͈᷅).
