FOODIE FRIDAY for June 19, 2009


I couldn't be happier that it's Friday. Not only will I be thrilled to leave this hellish work week behind, but I'm really excited that the weekend is just about here. Later today, I'll be headed home to Philadelphia to see my family and some friends, see BILFy McBILF (aka The Hotness, better known as Cole Freakin' Hamels) pitch for the Phillies on Sunday, then meeting some Phillies baseball players on Monday (squeeeeeal!).

But before I head back to my hometown, I've got a Foodie Friday post to do. PETER took the above picture, and he noted in his e-mail to me that this "is just a goofy error, but it struck me as particularly strange because right next to the pappers are other kinds of peppers, all labeled as peppers."

Of course, once I saw the picture and saw that it came from Peter, I knew I had to make up some silly tongue-twister like "Peckish Peter picked a peck of piquant pappers at the produce place." Say that five times fast, why don'tcha?

Thanks, PETER, for spotting this funny error. Happy Friday, everyone!

So, is my mind just in the gutter, or does "long hot peppers" sound kinda dirty?

Long Hot Pappers....also found in jars in the 'Latino Food' section of your local Stop and Shop....

@ Bridgete: Hahaha...yeah, you're right. That DOES sound kinda dirty!

@ Dave: So THAT'S what they sell in that oddly-named aisle! I was wondering about that... :)
