Hot Hot Hot! Dinner and Candied Jalapenos

I found this recipe on Pinterest. Sweet and Spicy!
 With an abundance of jalapenos, serranos, and habaneros and a lack of tomatoes, I have not canned as much salsa as last year. I've been buying tomatoes and making fresh salsa when needed.
Last night, we had my cousin's husband over for dinner. He moved here at the end of May for a job and is waiting for my cousin and his children to sell their house in Pennsylvania and move down here to join him. We at pulled pork tacos, slaw, grilled corn salad and salsa. 
 My sweet baby is now 3 1/2 and thus I have not blogged as much as last year. He is a pistol, spitfire, free spirit...you name it, but I wouldn't change his crazy little personality for anything! He keeps me more than busy, so this is what the table looks like nowadays...picture taken quickly before I even got the forks and napkins laid out. Such is life as a mommy of a very busy 3 1/2 year old boy!
I simply used my pottery from Tested by Fire for the food, a pretty platter to host the chips and salsa, and Blue Willow. My mom made the runner a few years ago.

Hi! Meredith, I am visiting from Miz Helen's. I just had to come over to find out about your pickled peppers. I love your Tablescaping and Bento ideas. You are very talented and your boys are lucky to have you make their food fun. I will be following with GFC. Have a great day!

Meredith, kudos to you on that fine garden! I know that takes a lot of work. Your family is lucky to have an excellent gardener as well as an excellent cook who can make tasty dishes from the bounty of our garden.
Thanks for stopping by to visit. Happy summer....Sarah

First things first, so I'm glad you're taking the necessary time to care for and raise your youngster. That is a VERY busy age, and the time always seems to pass so quickly. Enjoy it while you can!

Looking at your pulled pork tacos makes me want to go grab a pork butt out of the freezer so that I can slow cook it tomorrow for pulled pork over the weekend! I think I'll do that!!! Mmm!!! Gives me chills just thinking how good those are going to taste! I won't be making fresh salsa, but I'll bet yours is the hot diggity bomb!

Enjoy your weekend and those little ones!
