If not now, when?

One American woman. Twenty acres and a 1650 farmhouse in Tuscany. Random introspection and hilarity, depending on the day.

Ode to Peperoncino

You are magical, peperoncino …
A very lovely spice!
When I add you to my pasta,
It tastes so very nice.

Tiny little red peppers
Served ‘intero,’ somewhat hot.
Though when crushed into tiny pieces
Intensify a lot!!

All good things in moderation,
So the saying goes …
And because I didn’t listen,
My tongue needs a fire hose.

One of my fav's, too. Just have to watch it. The next day, it's not so much one's tongue that's on fire but elsewhere! Yikes!!
