467 Sketches

I sketched this morning in the regular sketchbook with the Micron 03 for Scavenger Hunt 467.  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1413116  I got up earlier than usual so sketched while my coffee got ready and I had my snack.

Number 10, stack of plates or cups
Number 11, made of plastic - my coffee mug (brown and not great.  Ha!)
Number 12, metal - rack and pans
Number 13, glass - lid
Number 14, in a bottle - Diet Coke (numbered wrong)

We had to take care of the chile today.  Gene worked on getting David's mailed off to him and I peeled chile.  Actually I'm not finished yet.  I haven't put away the jalepeños.  I will see how hard they are to peel.  Even though the chile is not very hot, I wore plastic gloves and I can tell it was a good idea.  I have warm fingers.  :-)

The roaster drops the chile into grocery bags and it "sweats" so is easier to peel when it cools off.  Sorry I didn't take a photo.  (google roasting chile in New Mexico)

Some peeled and ready to put in plastic bags for freezing.  You don't actually have to peel it before freezing, but it takes half the room and is easier when you get ready to use it.  One sack made about 17 pints.  It always seems like sooooo much when you are peeling.  Really!

So more down the road.

Seeing your bowl of green chilies reminds me of the breakfast we shared in Angel Fire. I so need a trip to the mountains.

17 pints still seems like a lot of chilies and def a good idea to wear gloves. would hate to touch the eyes with hands that handled peppers, ouch

Jennifer Rose, the chiles should last until next year! We use the dry red for tamales and enchiladas. :)

Jesse, Shay, and Lindz will be in San Antonio for the balloon festival working the coffee tent. I could come with them, but it will be a busy time.

Bag Blog, when is that in San Antonio? I didn't find it on Google. You are always busy!
